The Bauer Reactor 5000 are the entry-level leg pads this year from Bauer's Reactor line of goalie equipment. These pads would be great for someone playing on a budget, or anyone who is just starting to play recreationally. The Pro Core insert that is featured internally on the Reactor 5000s works to provide you with a highly flexible and lightweight pad. The large outer calf wrap will cover around the back of your leg, protecting you from cuts, slashes, or puck impacts, and the under-the-pant thigh protector offers you protection in a place that is very tough to cover as a goaltender. If you are looking for a great value leg pad, the Bauer Reactor 5000 is where you need to start!
