New to the 2020 Bauer lineup is the Bauer Pro Goalie Pant. The Pro Goal Pant features a new fit that varies from the previous Supreme or Vapor pants, but still carries aspects of each product line. These pants are a big deal for Bauer as they will be the first time Bauer has released custom goalie pants. Bauer is putting a lot of trust in this line of pants as this will now be their only line of goal pants they carry moving forward.
The externals of the pants are covered in 4 main materials. Nylon covers the majority of the pant, which is a light durable material. Bauer uses their Thermocore liner which will provide a cool environment inside the pant and help protect against bacteria and odor. The next material is mesh which helps keep the goalie pant at a cool temperature. Lastly they use a stretchy fabric at the back and inner thigh of the pant to offer mobility and flexibility in the pant.
Bauer really knocked it out of the park fit wise with these pants. The new fit will definitely contour towards more customers, allowing for tight or loose fit. The pant uses a fairly large squared off leg which allows for your leg to move freely through the pant.
Waist Closure & Internal Belt
Bauer is going back to a more traditional closure and belt setup than what we had seen in the last two years. The Bauer Pro Goalie Pant has an internal belt, with external cinch belt and lace closure. This gives you three different adjustments to secure the pants around the waist, with the option of using suspenders as well.
The hips of the Bauer Pro Pant are constructed with Comfort Edge Anatomical protection and Internal PORON. This provides elite protection and a snugger fit in the hips. There is also a hip flex pad that has Curv composite and Shock Lite protection giving you an extra layer of protection.
As with most goal pants, the groin protection is fairly light and features a tucked in free flex groin pad with lace-in system. This provides good flex through the front of the Bauer Pro Goalie Pant.
Bauer is using their Curv 3 PC Amp throughout the thigh which is built up of Curv composite and Molded HD foams to offer the elite protection at a light weight.
Bauer uses their extension fit loop to give this pant some length customization. The fit loop extension gives the ability to lengthen the pants an extra 1.5 inches.
Knee Pad Attachment
As for Knee Pad attachment systems Bauer does have one on the pant but it is very basic. It features a single nylon strap on the inside of the pant to help give the knee pad a more secure fit.
