The newest piece of protective gear from Maverik Lacrosse is the new Rome NXT Glove. This glove first surfaced at the Maverik Showtime recruiting event this past summer. All of the NCAA lacrosse programs in Maverik’s stable will be wearing these gloves this spring. Here is our review of the Rome NXT Glove.
First glance at the glove when we opened the box was that it looked small. We were sent a pair of navy blue gloves in size 13. Once trying them on they fit perfectly, they are snug in all the right places and have protection where needed. The glove itself is navy with white accents. The white accents run the length of the middle finger, as well as the thumb, the side bottom side of the glove and the cuff. The Rome NXT glove features X Foam technology. The X Foam technology makes the glove lightweight but provides the ultimate protection. We can agree the glove is lightweight and protective. The glove also uses Shark Gel protection on the thumb of the glove, right where the glove bends. The Rome NXT glove also features Flowcool technology, which provides maximum ventilation and cooling. This is key when you are fighting for a National Championship in the month of May.
The palm of the Rome NXT glove is great. It features three different types of materials, but when combined create a great palm. The palm of the Rome NXT allows you to really feel the handle in your hands. The Rome NXT glove was created with Durastretch technology which allows supreme comfort and a responsive fit. The glove also features the Rome NXT logo on multiple parts of the glove.
Overall the glove is a very solid glove. The Rome NXT glove right out of the box is useable. Most gloves require a small break in period, but not the Rome NXT glove. That is definitely a big plus for the glove. Again, the Rome NXT is lightweight and protective, two big keys when buying a lacrosse glove. Another big plus is the customizable options for the Rome NXT glove. Using Maverik’s Factory Custom website, allows you to create a mockup and then share that mockup. The customizable options for this glove are amazing. We highly recommend the new Rome NXT glove and can’t wait to see the glove on the field this spring.
