It always kinda annoyed me that my pants didn’t really fit right and did this:
I mean, what the hell is that? You could have put a table setting for six on my ass.
So anyway, Peter and I were at East West to get our skates sharpened. I took a look at the pants in stock while the skates were being done, and I found these:
They RULE. I bought them on the spot and wore them to my Val’s Spiny Dogfish game last night.
They’re perfect for small people — not only do they NOT do the ass thing pictured above, but the thigh pads are adjustable both in height and circumference. I also really like the tailbone protection and the padding covers my kidneys well.
This is my first hockey purchase for something I wanted based on how I play, as opposed to basic level gear just to get started. Next up, maybe a new helmet? I still really like my original skates, gloves, pads, and stick….but a new helmet with higher grade padding might be spiffy.
