“I tried HOPlite from Fi-Ber Sports and found them to be very light and no impediment to my stride or cross overs (forward or backwards). You would also not know that they are even on your foot due to the solid fit which do not flop around. I like the design and the option to customize with graphics, team logos, and player number. I would recommend these to anybody using current products on the market or that has been injured blocking shots with no protection.”
Joe Manno, collegiate/professional US hockey player

"I wanted to give you some feedback on the HOPlite skate guards after using them for the first time. First of all, they work! I took a couple shots off my feet in different areas with no pain what-so-ever. I could feel the puck, but there wasn't any pain or discomfort from the impact. The second thing I noticed was that you really don't notice they're on your feet. I thought maybe they would feel awkward and heavy, but neither was the case. Finally, the biggest thing I noticed was that they fundamentally change how you play the game. When you know your feet are protected you're willing to put them in front of anything without hesitation, and that makes you a bigger part of the game! They just work! Looking forward to strapping them on again soon."
Greg MacMillan, recreational hockey player

“I am very impressed by the (impact test) video! When do you think you will be rolling out this product?”
