The Sher-Wood T95 Leg Pad is a very well thought out Sr. Pro pad. It is Canadian made, and it is one of the few Sr. Pro pads on the market that allow the goalie to customize both the pad construction and pad colors.
The face of the T95 pad is made of leather, and the side gussets are made of synthetic leather for maximum durability. The thigh rise and the boot of the pads feature stiffer LD foams to help keep these high impact area structurally sound after many direct impacts. Internal breaks above and below the knee give the pad some flexibility, and softer LD foams on the pad face (especially the knee area) help absorb impacts for greater rebound control.
The leg channel of the pad is on the wider side to allow for great pad rotation, and a calf lock (with a removable/adjustable calf strap) can be used or removed as desired. The knee lock area features two laced in knee risers, and additional knee risers can be laced in if necessary depending on the goalie's style.
The boot channel is centered and is of medium depth to help center the pad back on the foot when recovering from the butterfly position.
- Uses higher density LD foam for the face of the pad absorbing more energy from the puck and prolonging the life of the pad
- Three flex zones in the pad and a double break in the upper roll allows the goalie to adjust the pad when changing positions
- Wide knee cradle and leg channel with a complete calf wrap provides the goalie the ability to quickly go from a stand up position to a butterfly position

The Key factor is the overall length. The length can be divided into three sections:
B.Instep to knee
C.Knee to top or thigh rise
The proper length of the goal pad boot is determined by the goalie's skate size. The next key area is the instep to knee that determines the shin length. Finally, the knee to top or thigh rise is a personal measurement depending on how much pant and pad overlap the goaltender prefers. A general rule is 7" to 8".
A.Skates size: provide the skate size for proper boot fit.
B.Instep to knee: measure from instep to the front center of kneecap while leg is in slightly bent position.
C. Thigh rise: measure from front center of kneecap up the thigh to desire height.
A + B + C = Estimated size of pad
If fitted properly, the goalie's knee should rest directly behind the center knee roll with the pad securely attached to the goal skate and properly strapped on the goaltender's leg. Generally, this will ensure that the pad breaks (bends) at the knee/shin and ankle as designed for optimal performance.
