The ultimate in mobility, the Vapor 1X Hockey Pants from Bauer have seen some serious upgrades. The elite protective equipment from Bauer all got the Curv Composite treatment this year, and difference in weight and protection is real. Found in the spine, hip, and thigh the Curv Composite inserts are molded and supplemented with Aerolite foam tech for even further impact protection. From there the focus on mobility ramps up, with Bauer’s new Inner Belt Lock System. Inspired by NHL athletes, the new system is a suspended belt lock that secures the fit of the pant closer to the players body, and less negative space means increased mobility.
The shell of the Vapor 1X Hockey Pants is outfitted with stretch zones in key areas, and an 840 denier overlay that makes them incredibly durable. You’ll find Bauer’s proprietary 37.5 fabric in the liner, which uses your body heat to evaporate the moisture that gets trapped in your gear more efficiently than simple wicking methods. With any pair of pants this awesome, Bauer knew you’d want to wear them for a while, so they included an easy zip extension fit system to provide an added 1″ of length when extended. Round them out with the standard zippered leg opening and suspender buttons, the Vapor 1X hockey pants have everything you’ll need.
