|Easton Stealth RS II Hockey Gloves Sr||
The Easton Stealth RS II Hockey Gloves are the premier gloves in the Stealth II line. The RS II gloves provide an advanced level of protection, durability and comfort. The unique angled cuff roll and AX suede palm are great features that maximize stick feel as well as free range of motion for the wrists.
The Easton RS II glove uses synthetic leather in high wear areas to provide durability and longevity while the pro nylon allows for air flow through the glove. The improved AX suede palm also utilizes additional material in the high wear area where the sticks rests in the palm and thumb to insure the palm will last. The Dri-Lex liner provides a comfortable feel inside the glove while wicking away moisture.
The index, middle and ring fingers are triple-segmented to optimize dexterity and provide an "out of the box" broken in feel. The outer shell of the gloves including the fingers are made of high density foams with plastic inserts to allow for an advanced level of protection. The thumb cap runs from the tip of the thumb all the way to the back of the cuff roll to prevent hyper-extension or injury from major impacts.
The signature Stealth cuff has been improved from the original Stealth glove so that the maximum range of motion may be achieved. Key "pockets" allow for the foreman to move into when stick handling or shooting without any hindrance.

Comments: The Easton RSII gloves are a nice upgrade to the original RS gloves, offering enhancements while keeping many of the best qualities of the original. The RSII is noticeably more protective than the original RS with bulked up protection all around from finger to cuff. However, the weight of the glove feels the same and not at all heavier even with the increased protection. The cuff also seems a bit longer than in the original RS extended a little farther up the arm than the original RS in same sizes but not in a hugely noticeable way. The palm is slightly different using upgraded versions of the AX suede material and the feel for and grip on the stick are just as good as with the RS. One difference I noticed was in the length of the fingers for these gloves. The original RS fit my finger length perfectly whereas the same sized RSII seems just slightly longer with a small bit of space at the end of the fingers for me. It isn't a problem and hasn't affected my stickhandling, but for those that perhaps found the original RS finger length a bit too short, the new RSII may be a better fit. The taper fit of the RSII is very similar to the original with tight fingers loosening slightly in the palm and widening out at the wrist. These are a great upgrade over the original RS that make them worth a buy. Perhaps not worth leaving your RS for if it still fits well, but a good replacement if your RS is worn out or if you're wanting to give this style of glove a try. The style of the glove is still unconventional and not for everyone but they seemed to have toned down the look with the RSII and brought it closer in line with more conventional gloves while still being pretty different looking.
