Goaltender – Athletic Support

As with regular pants, goaltenders pants are designed to absorb and disperse impact. Padding is positioned to protect hips, waist, lower back, tailbone, thighs and the groin area.

The same principles apply for fitting, protective quality and maintenance with goaltender pants as for regular players’ pants, with the exception:

Goalie pants need to be loose enough around the waist to allow the belly pad to tuck into the pants.

Goalie pants have additional protective pieces and, as such, padding is heavier and may require suspenders to help keep pants from falling.
