I then wrapped the chin strap around the rubber ear ring and taped it to itself using hockey tape. this side stays permanently attached, the other side clips on and off.
To make sure the chin cup ended up in the right place, I put on the helmet and put the chin cup on my chin, then pulled the chin strap to the right tightness. Hope that heklps!

Call the New York number they are right on the border— shipping is cheaper than LaxShack. I can tell you from personal experience that in a box lid a hard slash to the top of the head will ring the bell a bit more than a field helmet. Remember hockey helmets are mostly meant to protect the head from the ice or walls not as much chops to the melon.

I know that Sportstop has/had the Gait mask on their website, but I’m not a fan of those. I like the STX OTNY mask, plus I got the chrome mask and the Gait mask isn’t exactly chrome.

A box lid is light, but the lacrosse helmet definitely provides better protection overall. Hockey helmet don’t go down as far as lax helmets do so the back of the head/neck is a little more exposed.
Hockey helmets are usually more adjustable and if you have a HUGE head, a puck lid may be better than a CPX or somethng like that, which won’t fit right. then you have to take padding out and then you’re royally effed.
It’s not SO much about the difference in quality… for a lot of guys it just comes down to preference.
