The Reebok 14k hockey pant is an affordable pant in Reebok's 2013 line of protective equipment. It is a continuation of the 20k line, encompassing multiple characteristics of that pro-level pant. The JDP hip caps intend to redirect any direct impact away from the hip joint. This pant also has all the necessary protection in the waist and lower back area as our Tech Description outlines. Possibly the most useful feature of this pant is the hidden zipper that will allow for up to an inch of extension. This way you don't have to be worried about buying the 14k for a growing player!
