So as you move around, doesn't the belt push down the whole cup unit? 

I haven't found that to be an issue. The inner belt sits across the very top of my hips, and I pull it (and the outer belt) tight enough that it doesn't shift around on me. I also wear a player cup underneath my goalie cup (I like the extra separation), which might do something to keep the goalie cup in place, but I don't think so because the player cup sits more underneath my groin than in front of it.

I remember the blue/orange ones on GSBB, right?

Looks like you got the Pro model. The Elite one looks like the CCM pro stuff with the open back. Still hot looking!

  Yep, that was me! And yes, the Pro model does what it needs to for me. Didn't quite see what benefit I'd get from going to the Pro Elite.

How do you fit the inner pant belt with a goalie cup? Doesn't the upper padding of the cup get in the way of tightening the belt? 

I fit...snugly into my pants, so I don't rely on the inner belt.

I took a photo below to show where it sits. It appears to rest above the padding of the cup. I haven't noticed any interference.

Saw your video of you getting your gear at the shop on Youtube. It was golden :D

Anyone know if they make NHL regulation pants now that they are an AHL supplier? E-mailed them earlier this week and haven't heard anything back.

I think their top model is new specs. They look slimmer than the original Instincts.

Decided to order a pair of XPG 2 Pro Pants.  I initially opted for black w/ orange stitching, but they emailed me the next morning and said it'd take 4-5 weeks for production and they have black w/ white stitching in stock, so I opted for the stock pair.  Shipped same day and received a few days later.  Seemed nice out of the box, not too stiff like my Warrior Ritual RX3 Pro + pants were that I gave up on after about a dozen skates.  

Got one game in with the McKenney's and they seem great- I'm sure they'll break in over time but they felt just fine in my first skate with them.  I removed the inner belt and stuck with my Kova suspenders.  Really happy with them after one game.
