Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Easy to use, Features
Cons: Quality, white is easily stained
I bought a pair of the White/Red/White color scheme. They fit great and had good flexibility, so they didn't require much break-in. They are much lighter and less bulky than my Warrior Bonafides I was wearing previously. I'm skating faster because the pants do not hinder my stride.
HOWEVER, I'm very upset because the white color stains very easily. If you accidentally slide across the bench or rub against the top of the boards when you're changing lines, be prepared to see light brown and yellow stains where the nylon touches almost any foreign object. It looks like you had an accident on the ice! I tried pre-wash and even the tide stain removing pen, and neither did any good. After one game i have light brown stains on the backside, blue streaks probably from rubbing the top of the boards during line changes, and the front of the pant has some yellowish stains from dried sweat perhaps? I suppose I can wear a shell over this, but the whole point of buying pants with custom colors is to avoid wearing shells. I love the performance of the pant, but am very upset about the durability of the white color. I went ahead about ordered a red/white/red model, which I received yesterday.
