@CalValce you're like my doppelganger. While I went with Retro Flexes on my legs, the entire reason I did the Koho glove was for the 580 break (only offered under either Koho or Reebok branding at the time.) Great work on the reskin. Hell I even have the Premier chesty too (Blue however.) Do you also enjoy tinkering on cars and math??? Even if you don't... you've got style...

Great minds... :chug:

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

I'll be leaving mine untucked and not attached to my pants... but should that change after a few skates I'll be sure to make an update.

What size did you get?

I didn't, they only had one size there when I looked and they are 1.5 inches too long.

Can anyone compare the Fit 1, 2, 3 to the retail CCM sizes?

Specifically, which one is closest to retail medium and retail large? Thanks!

They kind of fit in between.

I'd say 2 - 3 is Large (with the 3 being a "big large")

3 - 4 is an XL.

I was told by Dudo to use the sizing chart and use waist sizing.  Pant length and width at the thigh blocks should be the same across all fits.

The Jets heritage are too big :(

Are they really that long on you? Do you wear a senior pant size right now? I would suspect these would be the same (or very similar) size in length, no? 

Comparison pics would be great if possible. Sorry to hear as well.

I was wearing XL old style pants before and they were interfering with my knee blocks. I went to pro return CCM in size Large and they are perfect length. I got Goalie Monkey to measure the pants as the + 1 for length had me a bit worried. Turns out they measure out to be 19 inches and mine are about 17.5. I never bought them so I can't really do a comparison.

No- I am talking inseam!

Inseam is the same length regardless of what size pant you get.

Yep- I’d be cutting and sewing...

My Warrior breezers are perfect with no alterations necessary!

So I just got to test out my new Vancouver colored fit 4, coming from the old spec San Jose 12A CCM pro returns.

The fit 4 is essentially the same fit as my XL pants, however a bit more snug at the waist. 

The front lower belly pad is now permanently attached at the top and bottom of the front crotch elastic panel, which replaces the traditional laced up panel.

I found this set up provided better movement and less "bunching" and "binding" between my tucked c/a and jock. 

Front thigh panels are now curved and gone are the "floating" outer and inner thigh panels. The inner ones are half the width, as the curvature of the thigh panels partially cover the inside thigh.

One can still unbutton the pant shell from the rib/spine panel part for cleaning/repairs.

Mobility IS in fact better in these pants, and they move with your body in a much more fluid fashion, as my old pants sometimes felt like loose pendulums sway about during quick lateral transitions. 

Shots to the front thigh and hip flex joint did not reveal any weak spots. Felt just as strong and confident in them as in my San Jose pants. 

I would recommend these pants to anyone, given then price, fit and performance. As fit 4 seems to feel similar to the XL pants, I would assume fit 3 = Large, Fit 2 = Medium.

Feel free to ask any questions.

      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...
