"Pratt behind his net, finds Weisner streaking up the boards. He dumps it in. We are in overtime here in Game 7 of the finals in what has been a memorable night at the Downtown Arena. Lynch throws it back up the boards and, OH NO! The puck hit off the referee's pants and now we have Stanley on a breakaway! He dekes left, shoots and scores! That's it! Oh what a shocking turn of events! Lynch threw it up the boards and it hit off the referee and bounced to center, Stanley broke in on a breakaway and beat Worley to end the game! Oh, this will go down as one of the most deflating moments in hockey history!"
We've all been there; that moment where the puck bounces off your unpadded leg and you've become a part of the play. It's inevitable. There's two ways to fight it: become a web slinger and hone the quickest reflexes, or have pants that minimize puck bounce. The latter is the better choice.
The PTX protective inserts feature compression-molded panels at the hip, kidney, thigh and tailbone. These provide superior protection, designed specifically for shock absorption. This means that if a puck hits you, it will drop. It also means you will stay protected, whether it's a puck, body or beer bottle that finds your upper legs.
With Teflon fabric protection and moisture management, the Force PTX-G2 Protective Pants resist staining and transport perspiration better than most referee pants on the market. The lock-stitch construction doesn't fray and resists cuts and pulls. Also, with no back coating needed, airflow is maximized, keeping you cool, comfortable and dry.
PTX-G2 will keep you out of the headlines in tomorrow's paper.
