The waist collar is high in the back and tapers to a low cut in the front. Less material in the front allows for slightly more flexibility, but reduces belly coverage.
The external thigh plates add another layer of protection on top of the internal impact plates and padding. Often this is considered an excessive amount of protection for most goalies.
The round barrel leg is ideal for maximizing coverage and has an equal width from top to bottom.
Your lower back is protected by the high collar, an extended back cover, and tailbone padding.
The waist and rear-end are connected together with elastic for flexible movements and to assist with air flow.
Multiple suspender buttons allow you to place your suspenders where you prefer and only add a small amount of weight.
The internal belt secures the pants to your body. The rear-loop in the center of the pants can be used to connect your chest protector via the fighting/pant strap.
We still strongly recommend wearing suspenders with your pants for the best hold.
Soft interior padding absorbs impact energies and is comfortable against the body. Everything is padded, even the crotch.
Internal belt not shown.
The bottom of the pant tends to wear out sooner than most other parts, due to friction with pad velcro or other abrasives. This leather strip helps the pant have a longer life span.
The best way to hold your knee pads up is by attaching them to your pants. The pant attachment on the upper thigh works for lace-in and elastic.
For body waist sizes larger than 38" (96.5cm) there is an extra material charge.
