The Bauer Nexus Performance pants are a custom pant. They provide a volume fit that allows for ultimate coverage and unmatched mobility while providing elite level protection. To protect, Bauer uses a molded dome hip guard and molded HD foam kidney pads to protect against impacts. The spine protection is made up of molded HD foam as well to better disperse impacts taken. The thigh padding offers a 2-piece ergonomic pad to wrap around the leg and protect at all angles. A Thermo Max liner is featured on the inside to wick moisture away from the body to keep you comfortable all game. The exterior of the pant is made up of nylon with 840 denier abrasion resistant overlays on the thighs for better durability. Stretchable leg gussets and leg zippers allow you to easily put on your pants before or after your skates and flex panels in key areas aid in mobility. The pants fasten with a skate lace and buckle closure.
