@CalValce can you please measure from the belt down to the edge of the pant leg?  I wanna see how these differ, if at all, from my Bauers.

@SaveByRichter35 approx 19 inches I was in a large 1s and these are a fit 2. I could tuck, but as I said before I prefer the untucked.

Sorry if I missed this a couple pages back... the crotch lacing is gone or behind the brown elastic? 

Gone. Goalie Monkey noted that some pairs might have lacing but most are the new elastic only. Supposedly makes for uniform sizing and guys can’t make their pants baggy by having loose laces.

Ok so the length of the outseam/seam, whatever, is 18" on my Bauers so these are a smidge longer.  That sucks, I was hoping they'd be same or shorter.  Oh well.

Knowing there are NOT any fun-sized goalies in the NHL any longer, save for the back up in Nashville (who is 5’11”, taller than I, fo sho); these would not work without cutting and sewing around 3” or more!

Shame, really...

@SaveByRichter35 these fit better than my large 1S pants. It also was with a measuring tape not a soft measuring tape.

@BadAngle41 - I wonder if that has anything to do without Price’s switch to Vaughn. I believe the Vaughn pants still have laces 

@TheGoalNet that could be. I don’t think ALL of these 13a were elastic only, but the majority yes. 

Just received my set yesterday and will be wearing them tonight. First impressions are that these are fantastic!! Fit is so much better as is the padding. Pic to answer the country of origin question...

Dammit I am so tempted for these but I don't wanna go longer with my goal shorts.  I wanted to go a little shorter whenever I bought another pair and figured I would have to go the custom route when that time came.  These would probably have alleviated that problem, oh well.

Your buddy Jason Terio could shorten them, no?

I just don’t want to muck with gear or I probably would have bought a pair. The Warrior Ritual X Pro small were perfect for me! No alterations necessary!

He probably could but at that point It'd probably end up coming out to somewhere close to just ordering a custom unit from Brown, Mckenney, etc.

And you would get a better pant, to boot!

Too broad of a statement to make. Custom doesn’t equate to better.

I’d say in term of protection the 13a are a significant upgrade for me over my V5s. Length is the same at 19” from beltline to bottom of the pant leg. But how they fit, actually sitting up higher on my hips the result is a slightly shorter pant. Need a couple months to get a good review put together, but don’t sell a big name company short simply because they’re a big name company.

And it may be too broad of a statement; however- bespoke is better than modded. Most likely, those pants you bought, IF they are perfect for you out of the box, will most likely be good and durable. But Brown or McKenney are built one at a time and have a WARRANTY; the pro stock do NOT have a warranty.

I think people on here know that I am probably borderline obsessed with light gear. For me personally, I notice a difference and lighter makes me comfortable and feeling nimble between the pipes

The one items I haven't sweat too much? The HP12 pants I have. They are light, they move well, and they are protective. Pretty minimal design too. I completely respect the challenge of making your item more appealing during web shopping or a quick trip to the hockey store, but these pants are beyond solid. It's shame they just don't call these "Pro" and keep them running at retail.

So many times, I get discouraged at some items that are called “pro” at the retail level. Breezers are one of those items. Why not offer these pro versions at retail if they are that good?

If any piece of equipment should be taken seriously in terms of lightness, it should be the following: mask, glove, pads, skates. That's my opinion.

My Reidic mask weighs like a feather compared to the Hackva I've worn some years ago. My 700x skates are much lighter then the One80s I wore. My Smith 1000 glove and pads aren't the heaviest but do have 10 years or so of usage and I'm anxious to experience the newer stuff to compare.

@TheGoalNet So believe it or not I actually do 99% of the cooking in my family and I don't have a food scale, I do it all to taste, not one of those damn bakers who NEED recipes. That said, I'm ordering a food scale today, mainly for the purposes of weighing goal equipment. 

I can't say 13a feel lighter than my previous V5s... but that's like comparing apples and oranges. 1 skate down and they feel VERY mobile. Length is about the same and the slimmed down thigh is noticeable when getting dressed, but 13a do come up significantly higher above my hips and integrate much better with an untucked Premier C/A. The ability to close 5 hole without door stop thigh blocks has taken my desire to shave about 1"-1.5" off my leg pads a NECESSITY. More to come...

      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...
