When searching for the best women’s lacrosse gloves, it can be important to choose a pair that are lightweight not to compromise your movement. Brine Superlight are ideal women’s lacrosse because they offer ventilation to keep your hands cool in use. Not only are sweaty hands uncomfortable, but they can be dangerous if you can’t obtain the grip you need during play. Brine Superlight gloves mainly focus on protection as they’re designed with a floating cuff around the wrist to ensure they don’t fall off at any time. This also helps you to scoop the ball up off the ground, making these gloves ideal for attackers, defenders, and midfielders. 

You might assume that for these premium features, you’ll pay a premium price, but they’re surprisingly cheaper than most competitive gloves. For such lightweight gloves, we’re impressed at the level of thickness and protection these can offer. This is great for advanced players who want to really get into the game without jeopardizing their safety. With the textured palms, you’ll receive a secure and reliable grip to the stick so you can play lacrosse with plenty of control. 

Pros:

  • Lightweight design to improve flexibility during play
  • Textured palms to enhance your protection and grip
  • Fantastic fit for all women’s hands

Cons:

  • Not as much protection on the side of your hands

STX Strike Women’s Lacrosse Gloves

women's lacrosse gloves

STX went above and beyond with these women’s lacrosse gloves. One of the most impressive features is the pocket on the back of the hand that provides ample room to store a heat pack in cold conditions. This is a great personal touch that some of the best gloves on the market don’t offer. These gloves aren’t as bulky as some of the others on this list, which is ideal if you have small hands or you’re a beginner player and won’t be playing with much aggression.

STX emphasis comfort and flexibility which is why these lacrosse gloves have a lightweight design to not limit your control when playing. They also feature a silicone grip on the palm to increase your control and prevent any accidental slippage. You’ll also notice foam along the knuckles for an additional layer of protection should you fall on the ice. STX designed these gloves with a built-in strap at the wrist to make them suitable for all different hand sizes.

Pros:

  • Silicone grip on the palm for added protection and grip
  • Perfect thickness for all seasons
  • Foam protection on the knuckles

Cons:

  • Not as thick as some competitive brands

Brine Silhouette Compression Molded Glove

Our second product from Brine is the Silhouette Compression Molded Glove. These are more of an all seasons pair of gloves, which include optimal ventilation on both the palm and the backhand. This can help with not getting sweaty and keeping a good grip inside your gloves, no matter how long the game goes. The backhand has also been redesigned for this product in order to offer compression molding, which helps with protection while still allowing enough flexibility to play the game well. The gloves, additionally, make use of a dual density foam which is lightweight but still adds to that needed protection.

These gloves offer a few more options in the form of design than the first two gloves we mentioned. The Silhouettes come in black, white, navy blue, and red. Those who prefer something simple will be best met by the black or navy, while those who want a bit of a flash might want to try the red or white. All gloves have the company name on both the wrist strap, as well as up the index finger of the glove. The king icon that Brine is known for is on the backhand part of the gloves.

Pros:

  • Updated design for protection and flexibility
  • Mesh venting for excellent airflow
  • Dual density foam with protection where needed

Cons:

  • May be too lightweight for some players

Warrior 2017 Gloves

best women's lacrosse gloves

Warrior created these women’s lacrosse gloves for comfort and protection. It’s the brand’s most premium pair of gloves and we can see why. The special D30 Aero foam technology provides instant protection from impacts so if you fall on the ground and land on your hands, the gloves will absorb any impact. This is also ideal if you play for long periods and require reliable gloves that remain supported to the stick. 

If you’re a frequent lacrosse player, you’ll appreciate that moisture and odor can build-up inside the gloves, so it’s important to choose a brand that puts a limit on these features. Fortunately, Warrior has got you covered with this feature. The Cage FLX system also improves the flexibility, protection and ventilation of these gloves.

Pros:

  • Built-in technology to prevent a build-up of moisture and odor
  • Provides ventilation to keep your hands cool
  • Incredible comfort

Cons:

  • Some customers had issues with sizing

STX Sultra Goalie Glove

Our final women’s lacrosse glove is the STX Sultra Goalie Glove. These are specially made for women goalies, and as such, offer exactly what you need in that position. You’ll get extra thumb padding to avoid injuries, as well as extra padding on the backhand. They also feature a slimmer palm and fingers that fit a woman’s hand better than unisex or men’s gloves. You also get silicone gel printing on the forefingers, thumb, and palm. These are built to offer flexibility and comfort, without dropping any of that needed protection that goalie’s count on.

The STX Sultra comes in royal blue, sky blue, black, navy, and red. The largest portion of the glove is white, with the other color used for accents. The STX name is on the wrist strap but isn’t even that noticeable. For any goalie out there, these gloves are among the ones to seriously consider. While field gloves can be used in a pinch, they can also leave you open to more injuries. That’s something everyone wants to avoid whenever possible.

Pros:

  • Thumb padding gives extra protection
  • Various colors available
  • Thin fingers and palm for better fit

Cons:

  • More expensive than other options
