CCM Pro Return 13A Pants

Recommended Posts

Has anyone picked up a pair of these CCM Pro Return 13A NHL Spec Pants from Goalie Monkey? I've been looking for a new pair for a while now and the price on these isn't bad. I've only really worn Vaughn (currently V5s) so any feedback on them would be greatly appreciated.

From Goalie Monkey:

Details

Brand new for the 2017-2018 NHL season, we have gotten our hands on the newest spec CCM Pro Return NHL Spec Senior Goalie Pants!

These pants are the exclusive 13A model which is built off of several different styles of pant to offer the highest level of protection. The base of the pant is most similar to the Reebok 11K pant which features a separate upper attachment from the lower half. The biggest change in NHL spec pants is the rounded thighs on the bottom half which sit closer to the goaltenders body. Moving to the top of the pant, the hip padding is very similar to the older CCM CL Pro pant mixed with designs from the CCM 12A pro stock pant. That front hip padding has an extra strategic cut to allow for more flexibility, while being sewn down in more places so the padding does not fold up and expose the thigh.

The second biggest change in NHL spec pants is the full elastic front which does not allow goalies to wear their pants incredibly baggy. This full elastic front allows for more uniformity and a tighter fit on the body.

Last, the sizing of the waist was changed to make the sizing of goalie pants more specific to the individual goaltender, so please check the size chart before purchasing.

  • These pants are made to NHL and AHL specifications
  • ALL Pro Return gear is made to the Pro's specification and may have been altered or have slight cosmetic blemishes
  • Some pants may have the lacing in front instead of full elastic
  • Some pants may also have “KW” signature or a player specific name on the inside
  • No Warranty

I haven’t bought those but I did buy Corey Crawford HPGPSP pro returns from SidelineSwap and absolutely love them. Personally these look similar and I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to buy a pair if I needed new pants.

Thanks @IPv6Freely... what was the pant length like? I'm not the tallest guy at 5'9" (5'10" at a morning skate.)

Looks like the classic 12A with new sizing. Pretty cool. Big fan of the 12A. I've been in CCM Pro Returns of 1 sort or another since college. No issues until my last pair. 

This pair was made in China and the elastic inside the leg came unstitched. It was a $20 fix and no issues since. So... my current pants are less than 1/2 of retail still

Good deal... thanks for the info. The full elastic front is sorta throwing me off visually... but I'm guessing I won't even notice the change when wearing them. All signs point to THIS GUY investing in some new pants... but which color? More to come...

@BadAngle41 My elastic issue was on the inner thigh elastic. The hem came undone. A local cobbler had this repaired in a day. Annoying AF for brand new pro stock gear, but painless

I'm also 5'9, wearing XL. The inseam doesn't change between sizes, so you'll be fine regardless of what size you pick.

That makes it a no-brainer for me, then, if I needed new pants.

Did they just get these? I want a pair but if Canadian companies get them I'll order there.

Ordered... given my waist size lends itself to Fit 1 I had to choose between LA Kings (Third), Florida Panthers (Navy), and Hershey Bears (Brown)... I went with Hershey. Hopefully looks decent with my Retro Tan setup...

Not sure @Hills... I just happened to spot them today.

If anyone purchases, could you show pix of the difference between these and the illegal breezers, please?

I'll be able to do a comparison to my V5s... but I don't have a true control like a pair of Senior Pro Premiers. Hopefully I have them in time for my Sunday tilt.

@BadAngle41 - I lost out on a pair of those on eBay a few years ago... It was a legit bidding war. When I had my tan set, I had the same thought as you. That would be a lit combo. WELL DONE :chug:

Danke!! Anxious to receive them and get them on the ice. I'd say I'll try and get some action shots to post, but really we don't even get wives/girlfriends to show up generally speaking.

That's what my wife means to say what she tells me "I'll stay home and put the kids to bed instead." I mean they're almost 2 1/2 now... when will they start doing things for themselves??

They might not ship them to Canada. Because of the sales restrictions there cart usually blocks anyone from Canada ordering the big 2 brands. I'd love of pair of Winnipeg heritage pants.

I just asked GoalieMonkey if there can confirm country or origin. 

Chances are they might come from overseas, most of the newer CCM pro pants are starting to comes from over there. I know when most of the pro pants before these hit the market it was hit and miss somewhere from Canada and others overseas.

I picked up a pair in Hershey fit 2 I have all Tan EF3 set up. They go very well together!

Coming from a pair of Michigan 1s (Nike branded) Large the fit 2 is spot on, I no longer tuck and find no hindered movement.

Butterfly is tighter and I feel like I have better 5 hole closure, moving into and out of post intergrations

      So I just got my new Eflex 4s in and was able to use them the night they came in so I figured I would throw up a quick initial thoughts post so I can do a full review after some more ice time.
      I ordered these through Goalie Monkey on April 8th and they took exactly 10 weeks to show up at my door. I don't think I would go with them again for a custom order but to their credit everything came in the correct specs and colors. 
      Pads
      In the past I have worn 34 whenever I was using a Lefevre product but on these I decided to go with a 33+2 and I am glad I did. I was falling off low in my Vaughn's and with these I hit dead center on the stack and never slipped off either way. I went with single internal/single external with the deep soft boot. I wish you could do straight angle with the Eflex instead of precurved but these aren't too bad and I like the look of a single external break the best. The strapping is the stock elastic with the tight leg channel. I did get the removable outer flap and the behind the ankle removable boot strap just so I had the options just in case. 
      These took me about 20 mins on the ice to get fully comfortable in but they are much closer to what I like compared to the Vaughn PVE's I was in. They are super easy to move in and seal to the ice amazingly and the rebounds were closer to what I wanted compared to the PVEs. Can't comment on the speedskin as the ice was awfully sloppy as it was humid out but it was still easier to move than it was in the Vaughns.







      Glove
      Glove is a 590 break with game ready palm. Seriously considered going back to the 580 since it seems everyone is jumping back on that train and I used one back in high school but I recall having issues shooting with that break and I didn't want to hate something that cost as much as this. Went with the stock double t with skate lace and the standard wrist strap. Also did the intermediate insides on this one and I really like the snug feel of it over my Eflex 3. Break in was okay but it still needs some work as I used it mainly just to block that first night but it will break in and be fine like every 590 I've used prior. I did like that they moved the hand straps on the inside to much more comfortable positions so you can really tighten it without causing discomfort.




      Blocker
      On the blocker I went with the straight finger protection which I personally feel is the best option they have as it protects well and doesn't get in the way like the curved used to for me. If I could do it again I would go with the half cuff instead of the full as I really don't feel like you can get it open enough. Otherwise the blocker is great and feels a good bit lighter than the Premier 1 I have been using. I also got it with binding since I think blockers look the best with binding.
