CCM CL500 goalie pants feature a molded, segmented, higher waist design that provides better protection on the rib and back areas - which is ideal for goalies who don't tuck their chest guards into their pants. The waist and hip padding is made of molded PE foams for great, lightweight protection, and a segmented PE foam lower spine pad comes standard. The pants can be cinched tight to the waist using both an exterior belt and a front lacing system.
The thigh padding is also made of molded PE foams, and the thigh padding has been squared off to provide a more flat frontal blocking surface. Segmented pads cover the upper thigh area, and these pads flex easily to allow for unincumbered movement in any direction. A 1" hidden extension zipper sits underneath the exterior belt cover on the INT & JR sized models - a great feature for goalies who are in between sizes or anticipating a growth spurt.
The pant shell is made of durable 400D Nylon with elastic stretch gussets in the legs and crotch to help the pants flex easily.
