Pure Hockey Says: The new Vapor APX pant is a huge improvement on a great X:60 model. As always, the APX features an ergonomic design, intended to allow players to get into their natural stance more easily than with traditionally constructed pants. Since pants are one of the heaviest pieces of equipment, Bauer looked to take some weight out of the APX model. By using their Vent Armor Protection, which maintains impact protection properties they reduced weight by 25% vs.traditional High Density Foams. Bauers` new Free-Flex Technology maximizes extension in the skating stride and optimizes upper body movement for maneuvering in all game situations. A great pad all around, with great protection and optimized mobility.
