Why do they put those flaps on the outside of the thigh?  Is there no longer any padding on the inside?

What flaps?

The padding on the face of the pants.  I know they all have them these days but I never understood why.  

Oh wasn’t sure what you were talking about because I’ve never seen pants without it. I imagine it’s done that way so you get the padding without losing the mobility. Much more prominent on the Bauer pants than the CCM though.

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 

That's everything I'm hoping for @CalValce. I'll still need to get my leg pads shaved down some this spring (getting unwanted interference when in VH/RVH) but I know GSparks was an immediate advocate for the slimmed down pant for those same reasons.

I’m wearing a 32+2 in the EF3, I was thinking that for my next pair depending on the model (warrior g4 or prem2) fooling around with the thigh rise and adding a +.5 or an additional inch, but the fit/streamlineness (if it’s even a word) of the pants allows me to squeeze the legs/knees closer and gives me a wider flare (thanks to Maria Mountain) eliminating that little sliver of day light at the top of the thigh rise.

I had my 5th skate in them last night and one of my goalie buddies at a prior skate said I ‘look more fluid and smoother’

I always thought pants were pants but I’m a really big fan!

Any tabs for lacing in the ole knee pads?

I've never heard of such a thing that wasn't a mod put in later.

You guys really have me tempted to try out these pants.  I have always been deathly afraid of getting new pants because the ones I have now, Bauer Reactor 5(pre lockout Reactor), are so streamlined compared to the big bulky shit that is made today.  Though these Bauers are still in great shape for their age, they aren't going to last forever.

Mine aren't quite the same model but very similar. I'd been a Bauer Supreme user previously. I'm a huge fan of the CCM pants. They have way better protection, yet are somehow more mobile than my Bauers. 

These are what mine look like:

As soon as I get them I'll post initial impressions and comparison (both dimensions and feel.) I'm guessing I'll have the same reaction as @CalValce though...

I think any pant will do its job in protecting you well when you're square. The V5s I have now are 6 years old and I've never worried about a lack of protection. I took a nice clapper from the left dot off of the inner part of my right thigh a couple months back that left a rainbow colored bruise, but that was me not getting to my mark on time and having my legs open.

What's funny to me is that I rarely am in the market for new pants, yet you've been playing since 2015 and have gone through more than 1 pair. The only real difference I'm interested in (besides looking incredible of course) is the tapered leg and potential less interference on leg pads and more of the mobility @CalValce has mentioned.

Yea mine are pretty streamlined despite being from the era of big equipment.  I get 0 interference with anything.  They're a little on the short side.  I wear slip covers over them and the covers are about 2" longer than the leg of the pants.

No tabs, I’m going with my G2 knees and the CCM garter with a zip tie(cut) to tab the garter straps through

My two Christmas presents the Hershey pants and a 580 Wilcox reskin. I’ll post those under the Wilcox thread

I like trying new things. :) You should see my for sale thread over on MSH... LOL.

For those that have these pants, how are you attaching your chest pad to the pants?  Are you using just the belt?

Thanks @bunnyman666. Very pleased with both purchases. While there’s a lot of ‘noise’ about better/lighter/quicker in the industry the pants have made me more comfortable and I find the 580 a bit more at home than the 590 style which I used for years prior and the 600 which I couldn’t get comfortable with.

I take the attachment part of the monster harness and slip it through the fixed stitch of the open area and the elastic connecting the belly to the rib padding and attach the Velcro of the monster suspender through the harness poking through the C/A slit. 

I barely adjust the belt. Since I made the move from tucking with my old 1s pants/Chestys to using this set up with the 1s and CCM chest and now the 13a pants and CCM chesty I find zero restriction/coverage/confidence issues

      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.

      Someone who can fit into these PLEASE BUY THEM!!! I would happily let my wife yell at me for quite some time for blowing money on these needlessly but I'm just too short to have them fit. Unused Mike Smith pro returns that are just beauties...

      Less beautiful IMO... but equally for sale is his white set...
