CCM Pro Return 13A Pants

Recommended Posts

Having pants in both fit 3 and fit 4 (for now), I can confirm that they fit pretty true to size as GoalieMonkey suggests: fit 3 is L and fit 4 is XL.

Awesome thanks... I might have to grab a set of these from @TGC-Rance when they have their annual pro return pant sale 

I really would recommend them. The three biggest things I noticed from my old V5s...

  1. Lack of inner thigh blocks helps close 5 hole better... no more door stops.
  2. Come up higher than my old pants... integrate with my C/A better than before.
  3. Overall protection... layered protection instead of big chunky blocks.

Same here.

I had a pair of 9Ks that I ditched in favor of V5s because of the added mobility.

These new pants are more mobile and more protective than the Vaughns that I had.  I would routinely get bruises on the thighs through the thigh padding with my old pants.

I have those I think. If they are what I bought a few months ago, they are HP12A which has the old NHL sizing. Great pant. 

Thanks for the clarification; I didn't know which CCM pants they are.

I watched that video a few days ago and, the vets on here will know what I mean, it seems that they readopted the wrap around padding that D&R Panta G pants had. Am I right? I remember mine, they literally wrapped the thigh from left to right, no breaks or bulkiness, and protective.

Regarding those exterior flaps on the upper thigh, is there also padding on the interior of the pants as well?  

Yes... and what some may not notice is the additional break in that flap compared to retail and that it is largely sewn down...

Ok so its double layered protection.  I still wear older pants from the early 00s before they started adding those external flaps so I was just curious.  Thanks man.

If you look at the part I pull out, that part ends up being behind those flaps.

I just picked up a pair of HPG13A's and have to say I love them, they feel protective and I love the lack of bulk—it's everything I wanted in a pair of pants. That being said, can anyone report on the durability of these pants after having used them for a year? I feel like the elastic front won't stay stretchy for long. I have a brand new pair of VE8 pro carbon pants that I bought before coming across these pants for sale locally and am not sure if I should hang onto the VE8's if these pants aren't built to last.

Yes, and there is nothing in this thread about long-term durability, which is what I am interested in. I want to know how these pants held up after a year of use as this thread was posted about a year ago.

      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...
