Vaughn starts off 2022 with the entrance of their brand new SLR3 Pro Carbon goalie pants. The gear was designed with high-level butterfly goalies in mind, with a double-layered pro style on the hip padding, taller waist, and wider profile. The pants also feature an internal padded support belt, Aero-spacer mesh lining, Pure Carbon material, and extra tailbone padding.

External Material
The outer material is made of tough polyester, known for its reliability and cut resistance. The Pro Carbon line implements Vaughn’s Pure Carbon material, and in the pants, you can find that in the tailbone area. The tailbone has also been heightened to cover more of the lower back. Vaughn added large five-hole blocks with high density foam for good protection and better coverage. The pants are lined with Aero-spacer mesh material, which add good ventilation and flexibility.

Fit
Sticking with a similar theme to the SLR2, the SLR3 goalie pants have a loose-fit style. Certain parts of the pants have been lengthened and/or widened to add protection, more net coverage, and greater adaptability. The 5”-wide crotch area increases flexibility further, and the tailbone padding has been lengthened for greater lower back protection.

Waist Closure & Internal Belt
The inner belt features an internal padded support belt for easier application and a more tailored fit. The purpose of the belt is to help the pants sit up on your hips without you needing to wear them too tightly. The outside additionally features a lace-up front waist for a personalized fit and feel. The lace-up front waist allows for a wider profile to accommodate the new SLR3 arm and chest protector.

Hip Protection
At the hip level, Vaughn outfitted the SLR3 Pro Carbon pants with molded kidney protection and a segmented waist to ensure coverage in that sensitive area while allowing good range of motion. The upper tailbone area has been extended and includes Pure Carbon material for added protection, along with some added cushion padding. The wide 5” crotch stretch increases flexibility in the pants further.

Thigh Protection
The thigh padding is wide and curved for better net coverage (11” in width). The inner thigh section has been furnished with five-hole padding blockers to cover that area and aid in making those kinds of saves. To synergize with the extra flexibility in the hips, the SLR3 Pro Carbon pants have inner thigh stretch panels, and the double-layered padding over the inner thigh seams increases coverage.

Leg Extension
The SLR3 Pro Carbon goalie pants do not feature a leg extension option.

Knee Pad Attachment
The SLR3 Pro Carbon goalie pants do not feature a knee pad attachment; however, a garter belt can be purchased separately.

Sizes & Colors
The Vaughn Ventus SLR3 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Pants come in sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and XX-Large, and the following stock colours: Black, Navy, Red

When deciding on a size, it’s recommended that you add 8-10 inches to your actual waist size to accommodate the space needed for the extra padding thickness and chest protector.

Goalie Pants Sizing

Goalie pants offer substantially more protection than their player counterparts: the hips are reinforced with high-density foam instead of a thin layer of nylon/elastic, the thighs of a goal pant are usually squared off for coverage purposes and made with thick plastic and foam while the waist is also beefed up to protect vital organs. Lastly, the way the two pants move is even different: player pants are designed to move back and forth while goal pants are more effective for lateral movements.

Properly sized goal pants are the difference between having your chest protector ride up and seamless integration for unrestricted movement. After all, they do connect the biggest pieces of gear a goaltender wears—their chest/arm and leg pads.

The first step is to approximate the size using the sizing charts listed on any individual goal pant’s product page on our website. Usually this is accomplished by matching a waist to a given size. Sometimes companies (ex. Vaughn) will list an oversized waist; you can match your size by adding 8” – 10” to your measured size to effectively use the chart. Matching up waist sizes exactly isn’t always necessary. It is very common for goalies to wear pants that are wider to increase net coverage, mobility and comfort.

Unlike player pants, the goalie version isn’t necessarily always worn directly on the waist. It is very common for goaltenders to wear their pants high on the waist (oversized) with suspenders, or so low and loose (undersized) that the leg pads are the only things holding them in place. After deciding which one feels more comfortable for your playing style, it is important that the pant is sized such that they terminate above the kneecap—leaving ample room for the knee wing of the leg pad to rest on the inside edge of the knee.

Another thing to consider is if the goalie wears his/her chest protector tucked into the pant or outside. If you’re the former, a pant with an internal belt, non-tapered waist and bigger size is going to accommodate the extra bulk from the chest/arm. On the other hand, if you’re wearing the chest protector on the outside, a tapered waist is going to reduce interference and improve feel.

Lastly, it is crucial to ensure that the pant works well with additional knee protection and the leg pads as well. We recommend trying everything on at once to make sure there is limited interference and that there is enough space in the thigh cradle (inside the pant’s leg) for knee protection to reside without overly restricting movement.
