My son has been using a 2 piece but the rules are changing so he needed a hockey style. We did a lot of research and tried on as many as we could find, which is not easy as most retailers only carry the Easton and UA. Found a place in Milwaukee that had them all while on vacation over Thanksgiving and this one is hands down the best of the bunch. It is light and adjustable and great field of vision. The big plus is the removable pads. As you know catchers sweat like a hose and cleaning the gear is a nightmare.
Pros:Removable pads, good field of vision, complete protection.
Cons:As compared to his 2 piece (which is a helmet and Nike mask)--weight, removal of mask harder, wear and tear on head and ears when removing, again with a 2 piece this is not an issue as the helmet stays on your head, limited field of vision on all hockey style is greatly reduced when compared to 2 piece, adjustment is limited to tight or loose.
