Craigslist JOFA Bourdon pads


These are the pads I picked up a few weeks ago. I did some work on them. Replaced the top and bottom wear strips, replaced all the buckles, patched a small hole near the toe on the left pad. The side wings were missing from one pad, so I used the existing ones as a pattern to make new wings for both pads. They are Bernie Parent size at about 30" with 3 straps. They came out pretty nice after some work!

Beautiful Pads Neums. Bourdons (and Kenesky's) are the Holy Grail for me. YOU certainly have a knack for finding these [sign in to see URL] would be great to display at Toronto MaskFest. lol

Re: Craigslist JOFA Bourdon pads


This pair was in a Craigslist Chicago ad, so they were only about 10 miles from my home. The ad only said something like "vintage goalie pads", but I noticed the little thigh rise tag in the picture. When I called the seller he confirmed that the tag said Bourdon, so I was at his house with cash in my hands within the hour! He told me that he wore these pads in high school and that he originally bought them at a Play It Again Sports store in Arizona.

Re: Craigslist JOFA Bourdon pads


I had a pair of Bourdon pads like these about seven years ago that were stuffed with kapok. These are stuffed with some kind of wool-like brown material that I have never seen before. I showed this picture to Glenn Miller and he thinks it is nylon rug yarn fibers. Strange that I have never seen a pair of Bourdons stuffed with deer hair.

It looks positively disgusting, whatever that filler is...

All my early 70's Bourdons are deer hair.

They probably should have stuck with the deer hair. For a pair this small these are quite heavy.

Re: Craigslist JOFA Bourdon pads


Just out of curiosity, has anyone found a product or method to bring back the tan colour to the side panels?
