DeWalt Protectors are not only known for their quality, but they have been making them since 1958. They were first introduced with the name “Protector” and later changed it to “Protectors”. There are two types of protectors: Lowe’s Protectors and DPG Protectors. These protectors come in different sizes and shapes. The size of the protector determines its protection level. The higher the number, the better the protection.
The following table shows all protectors and their protective levels.

To determine the right protector for you, first you must measure the circumference of your head by using a tape measure. Then go to the table above and look for your measurement.
Depending on what that measurement is, that’s the protector you should get. If you don’t know your head measurement, use a tape measure and place it around your head. The tape should touch your ear, all the way around your head. Take that measurement and compare it to the table above.
Now that you know what size you need, let’s talk about the different types. The first type is the Protectors.
These protectors are known for their comfort and large field of vision. The lenses are almost three inches tall, providing plenty of space to see and the foam provides comfort for your face. It’s one of the most comfortable protectors on this list. The only problem is the size. Some people have complained that it’s a little too big and can get in the way. If you have a smaller head, then the extra space may not bother you. The next type is the DPG Protectors. These protectors are best for those who want protection without sacrificing field of vision. The lenses are an inch and a half tall, which is slightly less than the Protector’s lenses. However, the difference is unnoticeable. The foam is a little bit stiffer than the Protector’s, but it’s still very comfortable. It has a medium-sized frame, so if the Protector’s frame is too big for you, then this one might be better. The last type is known as the Lowes Protectors. It’s similar to the Protector in many ways, except for some minor differences. The lenses are a little less than two inches tall, which is shorter than the Protector’s lenses. It’s smaller in size overall, so if the Protector was too big, then this one might work better for you. The foam is a little softer than the DPG’s, but not as soft as the Protector’s. There are some more types of protectors, such as the Snap-on Protectors, but I’ll leave you to look those up yourself.
Once you’ve gotten the right size and type, it’s time to pick a color. You have a wide range of colors to choose from, including (but not limited to) white, silver, gold, black, pink, blue, green and yellow.
If you were getting a full face mask, then your choices would be much more limited.
To pick a color, I’ll leave that up to you. With so many colors to choose from, it makes it a little difficult for me to pick one over the other.
So I’ll leave that up to you.
Once you’ve chosen a color and put in your order, your new hockey mask should come in within a week. But until then, you’re defenseless.
So until then, sleep with one eye open.
You have chosen to get a new hockey mask.
Your order has been placed, and it should be delivered within a week.
You’re a little defenseless until then, so sleep with one eye open.
