When we build a glove at West Coast we start with the palm, we search for the absolute best latex in the world, we work with only 1 company - based in Germany and we source our products Factory Direct. Many times the latex is made specifically for us.

Supreme All-Weather Grip, Thermo Dry Backhand, BioHybrid Cut, Combined with Neoprene for easy entry and a Tug Strap to help get your Quantum Hurricane on and off - we feel the Quantum Hurricane is one of the best all-weather gloves ever created!

Aqua Latex is a variant of our traditional Supreme Latex. It is 4mm thick, however it has additional chemical treatments which help it in wet weather, it also more porous - with larger micro pockets to help absorb and hold water without losing any gripping properties.

Tim had some great ideas in what he wanted in a glove, the Wrap over/Wrap Under thumb that you see in so many West Coast gloves today, was a Tim Melia concept. When it came to designing the glove, lightweight, flexible and breathable were all vital - but it had to have a large amount of latex to increase surface area when catching.

The Quantum HERO has our 4.25mm German Performance Giga Grip. This Latex was last used on our Spyder-MAX and Spyder X Series gloves. It is perfect for keepers who need a very durable glove. It is also a great All-Weather glove and is classified as a 'thirsty glove.' This means it needs to be wet before use for best results.

We are very proud of the work our team does on developing gloves, mainly because its an attitude of open minds and a fresh approach to every glove. This was the case with the Quantum, we wanted to create a glove the super flexibility, but with more mesh than our other gloves- and a new look and set of features.

When designing the glove a few things were important to Jimmy: Comfort, Flexibility, Extended Palm and a glove that can perform in any condition while being very durable on turf fields. After over 10 months of testing we choose 4mm German Graphite + Latex for this glove.

The MLS opened the 2015 Season with the defending Champion LA Galaxy facing off vs the Chicago Fire. We were very proud to see Brian wearing the gloves he worked so hard on developing and we are so happy to offer you another amazing Pro Match Glove at a great price!

We combined the Round Roll Finger on the Index and Pinky with the MAX Expanse cut on the Middle two fingers together and added a Wrap Around Thumb- wrapping the latex over and under the thumb. This unique and never before design reduced weight to the thumb area, increased the grip, and gave the best features of Roll and MAX together to create a SUPER Hybrid Cut, we call BioHYBRID. It fits like no other glove has fit before, contours your hand and feels like a part of you!

Our newest ball has arrived, not only does the new TruFlight Match Ball come in HI-VIZ color along with a new design, we have dramatically improved the internal bladder to better hold air, so you don't have to pump it up as much. Combined with better balance and just a touch softer- we are very happy with the improvements on this match ball.

Welcome Spyder-MAX Storm and Vyper Nasco BLUE Edition. These gloves incorporate 2 new All-Weather Supreme Grip Latex's. The latex is quite unique in that it gives amazing grip in the wet as well as dry. Both of these gloves need to be wet before you use the latex if its dry outside for optimal grip and more importantly to protect the latex.

When you play with your hands sweat, the grass is wet - dirt get on your gloves, for a variety of reasons your gloves are wet. You are tired and exhausted, you just throw them in your bag and forget about them. This is where your gloves develop smell. It's not from the sweating or playing, once your gloves are stored wet, Bacteria starts to grow on in the dark moist areas. THIS IS HOW YOU GET STINKY GLOVES!

We have taken the latex from our Previous Fusion II Inferno and applied it to the Ultra Max Glove and we think the combination has come out great! So if you are looking for a glove with a little more room and something that is great in any weather and can put more latex on the ball - go for the Ultra Max line!
Posted on August 29 2014
This glove is a brand new glove, completely redesigned from the ground up. Almost 1 year ago we launched the Fusion 2, which was a quality glove- however we really wanted to improve on that. The Fusion glove is designed to be our maximum flexibility line, Fusing elements of some of the greatest glove designs all into one.

One of the biggest way's we do that is to work directly with Professional Soccer Players on what they want in a glove. The West Coast GK Pro-Team is used to develop and often times design our gloves- from fit to the type of latex we use. It is our honor to be able to work with some incredibly talented Goalkeepers!
Posted on June 09 2014
We want to give everyone a quick heads up that we will be discontinuing the Fusion II Inferno & Phantom along with certain Spyder Pro series gloves. The main reason for this is simply to make way for new gloves. West Coast is always working to innovate and bring new styles and designs in 2014 and beyond

After we saw the first samples of the Vyper Rekon - the best way to describe it was just Bad Ass... it looked intimidating and incredible at the same time..... then came the Hybrid cut combined with the Supreme latex, its probably one of the better combinations
Posted on February 28 2014
the Ultra Max is a glove we have been working on since Spring Last year. Haley Kopmeyer of the Seattle Reign was the lead Goalkeeper testing this glove, she spent much of her Off-Season working on Sample Testing and Providing Feedback on Latex and Backhand

We have added an image to each glove description to better explain it's properties, we thought this was important as every glove is a tad different. Much like cars will all get you to and from a destination- they all seem to do it with a different ride and set of options. We wanted to make sure we highlighted the performance features of the West Coast Gloves!

We are really excited to introduce another glove to the West Coast family. This glove was our contest Winning Design, by Daniel Young from Seattle Washington. The Aqua Max is part of the Spyder MAX Glove line, so it will have the wider fingers and expanded gripping area of our very popular trademarked MAX line. However the brand new AQUA LATEX will bring another brand new element to this glove.

We think every goalkeepers dream is to create their own glove & New England Revolution GK Luis Soffner is no different. Having worked with West Coast to design this glove makes Big Lou who stands at 6'5" one of only 3 Goalkeepers in the MLS to have their own glove! Soffner was very specific on the mesh, the backhand colors and design, and most importantly the latex.

Washing Gloves Dramatically increases the life of gloves, it removes chemicals left in the gloves during the manufacturing process, it removes dirt and grime from playing, restores grip back to the glove, gets rid of smells and is a great time for a keeper to examine their gloves and take ownership of their most important piece of equipment!

Many people ask What is Contact Foam? Contact Foam is a Super Sticky Palm Material that has a plastic covering over it to prevent it from getting any foreign objects on it during the manufacturing process. Our Contact Foam is called "Complete Contact" is has a great feel to it and is stickier at first.

We often get asked if we have reviews of our gloves- we thought we would take this time to share a couple reviews that were written about our Spyder-MAX series. The Spyder-MAX like all our gloves is a Professional Match glove, it is design to be a wide glove, to put more of your hand on the Soccer Ball.

A Negative Cut Goalkeeper Glove is one that has the stitching on the inside, similar to a driving glove. Made popular in Germany then spreading to the UK, it is the glove that over half of the top line Goalkeepers in the World use today. The reason for that is simple, it is a precise glove that allows for a more complete grip and feel of the ball.

We wanted to make sure we had the rains of England and Scotland, the mud of Ireland, the Turf so many in the US play on, and the arid conditions we see so many keepers playing on represented. With that we are glad to announce our newest Pro-Team member, Jordan Jennings.

Ever wonder why that Water Bottle is in the net in EPL or MLS games? Its not just for a thirsty keeper! In order to have the best grip with most Latex's - especially Giga Grip, you must keep the palms damp. Spit works ok, but on very dry days, you need water on your gloves before you start training or warming up and every 15-30 minutes after.

We have been hard at work designing and making the new Spyder gloves for you!
