I need to replace my gloves that I have had since 1999.
They are mission but at the time I believe were called Bilt
rite.They are all black have biltrite written across the wrist,they are the pro league series.Can anyone tell me where I can get another pair.

Mission changed the Bilt-Rite model name to a "Mission" model name series when they realized that they had the best product on the market and nobody knew they were made by Mission. "Bilt-Rites" are no longer being manufactured, and I know of nowhere that you can still get them.
My Bilt-Rite's seem to be lasting longer than yours, but I don't play on ice at all. The extra moisture of ice tends to deteriorate stuff quicker, I believe. I also don't have tape on the top of my stick, which abrades the glove palms.
As my "polar bear" model Bilt-Rites (the all-white "Works" model) are no longer being manufactured, I anticipate re-palming them several times before I am willing to part with them.
Caitlin wears the newer, three-finger Wicked Lite model of Missions, and the light weight and extra cuff protection work very well for her (she's only 95 lbs, soaking wet).
I think you're stuck either re-palming, or buying one of the newer models...don't think you can go wrong with either method.

I am a big beliver in the Bilt Rite works gloves. I've had 4 pairs now, even the very loud bright yellow gloves. Anyways the last pair I got was a black/silver 14in. pair. I dont know if this site still has it but here is the link, I got them for $30, which is a great deal:
Call 877-BLADING to order
I hope this helps you out, also inlinesports.com had some a while back but at a higher price.

inlinesports.com had the Mission Icon glove for $39. Its basiclly the same as the Works glove. They also have Franklin 8505 and 9505 gloves, which I think are better, for the same price,

Thanks forthe Info Dan. I dont play any ice however they are not in bad condition but they are starting to wear at the palms.Until I find a glove that fits and feels like these do I guess I will have them re-palmed soon.

Try ebay, my brother got a pair about 4 months ago brand new for $25. Sorry about the site, I knew it was too good of a deal to last that long.

if you search the web there are a bunch of places that still have left over Bilt Rites stuff. I know of a few stores here that still have some left overs.
