Pros: Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features, unbelievably protective, nice close fit, easy to embroiedure, great look
Cons: Expensive, slightly heavier than other top end pants
These pants are by far the most protective pants I have worn of any brand. Nothing else gives you as much padding around the hip, kidney/tailbone , spine and thigh areas. The thighs especially because the padding curls around to the very inside of the leg with high density foam. Nothing else on the market comes close. The pants themselves are light for the amount of padding they come with and the inside liner moves independantly from the outside giving you a great skate stride. The lower pant legs are also equipped with abrastion resistant 840 denier fabric to give you the extra durability you need for board burn when your squeezed between players and the boards. The inside liner is soft and comfortable and absorbs perspiration but dries quickly after use. The inside belt is great and gives you a great hug around the hips so you don't even need suspenders.The overlapping velcro belt is an improvement from the lace up traditional front and less of a pain to keep secure. All in all these are among some of the most elite pants on the market and so far I've had no quality issues whatsoever. I highly recommend these pants if you play advanced to pro hockey, you won't find anything else as protective on the market today.
