Equipment:

Non-Goalies

Stick- ~40'' for attackmen and midfielders/ 6' for defenders (only 3 on the field at a time)

Helmet, mouthpiece- very similar to a hockey helmet, but with a visor, to try to block the sun.

Gloves- similar to hockey, but designed for different range of motion

Elbow pads- like hockey, but less restrictive

Shoulder pads- like hockey, but usually very low profile

Rib pads (optional)

Cup (optional)- may be too difficult to run with one

Cleats- basically football cleats

No padding below the waist

Goalies

Stick- larger head than field players

Helmet, mouthpiece, throat guard- Helmet is the same as field players, but with a plastic throat guard like hockey goalies have.

Gloves- same as field players but usually more protective (not larger, but different type of padding)

Chest protector- pad that only covers the chest

Cup

No other padding- none on arms, legs

I've always felt that goalies are insane, because they invariably get hit all over their body with the ball and are willing to step in front of 100 mph shots.

This is true. A friend of mine actually had one of his balls split by a lacrosse ball and was in surgery this past weekend 8-o . I've never worn one though (I play attack). To anyone who plays defense, I would strongly recommend wearing one.
