This week, we are featuring Christine, her son Nikko and daughter Anja in our Customer Profile Series.
Customer: Christine, Nikko and Anja
Hockey mom Christine, her son Nikko who is 9 years old, and daughter Anja who is 6, live in Connecticut. They both play for the Rhode Island Saints out of Burrillville, RI and both played for the Southeastern Connecticut Seahawks (Norwich, CT) last year. "Nikko was 3 weeks (!) old when he would finally calm down as a baby watching the NHL Playoffs. It was magical!" says mom Christine But, it wasn’t until he was 5 years old that he put on his first skates and hit the ice. He has been playing now for 3.5 years.
Where did you first hear about Oneiric and what intrigued you to buy it?
We learned about Oneiric from a Facebook group that coordinates deals and discounts for hockey. We tried out pairs for both Nikko and Anja. They like that they don’t have to use tape! I liked the integrated design, ankle protection, and back of leg padding, especially since both had sustained slashing injuries to the back of the leg and Anja had received a skate cut on the inner thigh just before the deal on the Base Layer went live.
What have yours and your kids experience been like using the Oneiric Base Layer?
Mostly positive. The shin pads can be a bit tough to get in and out, but ultimately, that’s a good thing, because then they don’t shift around in gameplay. Helping the kids learn how to deal with this pad pockets or just helping them put them in isn’t hard at all. Everything else is easy peasy and makes this our go-to jock.
What are your favourite features of the Oneiric Base Layer and why?
Everything! Anja wants to be a goalie, but for now she has to be a player. Knowing that if she wants to hop into goal during a pick up game and that her ankles are protected from pucks and the back of the legs are protected gives me solace. For Nikko, he’s a hardcore defenseman, so the padding is a great thing, but also the cut resistance is a relief for me when I see the pile ups!
How do you think the Oneiric Base Layer compares to other base layer products?
Clearly, Oneiric is far more versatile and has excellent protection!
