    Concerns and a discussion on ice hockey protective equipment are presented, with the emphasis on human factors and the interfacing between human factors and the equipment that comes in the design of protective equipment. These concerns include sizing, coverage, anatomical shapes, equipment configurations, materials available for equipment manufacture, and the nature of the sports and games in which the equipment is used. Special emphasis is directed to the effects of aging and the life cycle of the protective equipment itself.
