I have both the regular TotalOne pants and this TotalOne girdle. While both are very nice, the girdle has all but forced the pants into early retirement. The protection of the girdle is more than adequate, but where it really shines is in the weight department. If it weren't for the fact that it's a nice firm fit, you would probably forget you're even wearing it. It's also perfect for stick time where you may not take all of your gear. This, your skates, gloves, shins and a helmet thrown into a small duffle and away you go. My only concern moving forward is if the stretch material will last. If it does, this will be with me for a long time.
