In the sports world, many pieces of equipment have stayed virtually the same for years. However, this has not been the case with hockey goalie masks.
Originally, they were nothing more than a fiberglass mold one pressed up against their face, but over the past several decades, they have become exceptionally complex and carefully designed. While modern goalie masks might appear to be state-of-the art, there are companies out there that are constantly working to make them even better.
Warwick Mask, led by Gary Warwick, is among those continuing to make strides in the industry. Warwick has been in the mask-making industry for the past 50 years, and his business focuses on creating custom-made masks that often include elaborate paint jobs from a handful of artists.
