Best Lacrosse Gloves – Top 5
It is important to be well protected when you play lacrosse. Part of being protected is making sure to wear high quality gear that will keep you safe while getting checked by opponents. Although lacrosse gloves should not fundamentally change your game, it’s a good idea to get gloves that will guard your hand from injury. No one likes getting checked by a 6-foot pole straight to the hand! Here are LaxWeekly’s top 5 lacrosse gloves:
It is no surprise that I am a huge fan of Maverik gear, and gloves are no different. I currently use the M3 lacrosse gloves and absolutely love them. They are extremely comfortable, lightweight, but most of all, I do not have to worry about defenders poke-checking me in the hands. These gloves give me confidence to go at my defender without hesitation, which is a huge advantage in my game.

2) Brine King Superlight Gloves
These lacrosse gloves have been around forever, and I still see players wearing these in every game that I play. The Superlights are great gloves, plain and simple. They are a bit light on the padding, but they are extremely light (superlight) and comfortable the second you try them on. (*Note: Some Amazon reviews say these gloves run a bit small, so you might want to try and order a size up)
Quick Review: Most comfortable, extremely light
3) STX Surgeon Lacrosse Gloves
STX is a great lacrosse company, and the Surgeon line has been popular for a few years. I used the Surgeon gloves for a long time, and I had absolutely no complaints. These gloves are perfect for someone looking for extra protection: there is an extra protection piece on the thumb of the glove, which is a common place to get checked. I was never afraid of any checks wearing these gloves!
Quick Review: Most protective, very comfortable, pricy
4) Warrior Burn Lacrosse Gloves
I am a huge fan of the Warrior Burn gloves. These are another set of gloves that you will often see at least one player wearing at every game. These gloves offer great protection, good customization (you can switch out the cuffs to mix and match colors), and have great feel when wearing them. My only knock against them is that sometimes they are less “breathable” than other gloves, but that’s not an issue most of the time.
Quick Review: Nice quality, good protection, solid all-around
5) Under Armour Elevate USA Gloves
I came across these gloves when browsing around Amazon. These gloves immediately popped out of the page. They are red, white, and blue colored all across the glove. The USA gloves are certainly the best looking gloves on this list. I could see these on a flashy player who likes to score behind-the-back and between-the-legs goals. These would be fun to try during a summer tournament right around July 4th.
Quick Review: Best looking gloves
These are 5 gloves that would be great for any player on the field. At the end of the day, gloves come down to preference…do you want the most protection? The lightest weight? The best looking? This list gives you options for every preference. After you find the right pair, go hit the wall for a few minutes to break them in! There is nothing better than a nice broken-in pair of gloves. Have fun!
