Young Sees Baby-Seals Beginning To Turn It All Around After Slow Start

Cooper improves the hockey glove by using a unique new lightweight nylon.

Our new glove is made of Nylite, a lightweight, but tough nylon developed exclusively for Cooper. It reduces the weight as much as 27% on some models. A special double coating of urethane makes Nylite water and perspiration proof, so these gloves stay light—right through the season. Cooper’s new Nylite hockey gloves are padded throughout with cushion foam, providing even greater lightness and extra protection. There’s a new one-piece cuff roll that floats with the hand for quicker, freer movements; shockdispersing, flexible back rolls, “Armourist” forearm protection, and the exclusive Cooper “Armadillo” thumb. At Cooper, we’re dedicated to improving our hockey equipment. So you can improve your. game.…
