You don't really think of your hockey pants until they fail you in some way, be that through a less serious issue like having red pants playing for a green team, or when something serious does happen, such as restrained movement or injury. Well, Easton is here to provide a hockey pant that will withstand the stresses that premier hockey players can dish out on their gear. The new Stealth C9.0 hockey pants utilize many of the same features as the top-of-the-line CX, but have a few material differences to offer pro-level protection without the pro-level cost.
Starting from the top, the spine is covered by a flexible piece of HDPE which not only disperses impacts but also moves with your body to maintain a high level of protection no matter what position you're in. Your kidney's are covered by HD foam to absorb any shocks that could hit a sensitive area. Down into the hips and thighs, the Stealth C9.0 utilizes Hyper Mobility Armor with Hyperlite foam and PE inserts to provide incredible mobility and protection to your thighs. In these pants, not even the most viscious of slashes will get through.
The C9.0 has a unique two-way belt closure system with a lace-up front to ensure a great fit and that the pants always stay in place. The shell is a combination of nylons and mesh, known as Easton's DuraShell, which provide excellent abrasion resistance, durabilty and plenty of air flow to help keep you dry. The lining of the pants contains Easton's Bio-Dri moisture wicking liner with an anti-microbial treatment and PE tailbone inserts to keep you light, dry and protected.
If you need top-tier protection but want to save some dough, take a serious look at Easton's Stealth C9.0 hockey pants!
