Customer Profile Series: Meet Sue O'Connor

I’m 46 years old and I play for the Illinois Stars out of Chicago and the Midwest Sirens out of Dyer, Indiana. As well as a number of local group skates around the Chicagoland Area. My Illinois Stars is a women’s 30+ tournament team that participates every year in the Dirty 30 and USA Hockey’s Women's Rec Nationals in Florida. 

I started playing floor hockey in high school but I tried ice hockey for the first time in the spring of 1994 and I absolutely was hooked. I’ve been playing for 25 years now. I will always love this sport because it’s how I met my husband!

Where did you first hear about Oneiric and what intrigued you to want to purchase the Genesis Base Layer?
I was on YouTube and saw a review of Oneiric and was in market for new base layer gear. I liked Oneiric’s Facebook page and began to read reviews and look at every photo. I liked what I read and decided to purchase a pair for myself for Christmas.

What has your experience been like using the Genesis Base Layer?
So far so good! They are incredibly lightweight—I barely know they are on. You would think with the extra padding you would notice them, but you don’t!

What are your favourite features of the Genesis Base Layer?
I like the cut resistant ankles. I have seen a half dozen skate cuts and feel so secure. I also like the grip waistband—the pants don’t slip or fall during game play, which is one less thing, as a goalie, that I don’t have to be concerned with or think about.

How do you think the Genesis Base Layer compares to other Base Layer products that you have tried in the past?
The cut resistant ankles and lower calf, the grip waist band, and the extra padding on the back of the legs is awesome. Once again, I don’t even feel the extra padding which you would think you would. These are the ultimate base layer for any hockey player. It’s a MUST have!!


Genesis Base Layers are designed for hockey goalies of all ages.
