Bauer keeps their pants consistent by only adding minor upgrades and improvements to the Vapor 2X goal pants. Between the lightweight build, the 11 inch barrel width and their inner belt, these pants are perfect if you want to be big and mobile. Using Curve Composite, Aerolite and ThermoCore, Bauer stops at nothing to make an all great pant no matter what you're looking for.
Bauer uses their ThermoCore liner to make the pants fit and feel comfy while also keeping you cool on the ice. Replacing the 37.5 technology, ThermoCore is designed to cool your body down while still being soft and comfortable to wear. The other material used on the outside is an nylon type fabric to improve durability. Bauer also uses a material similar to C.O.R.Tech in high wear areas such as the bottom of the pants.
Designed to be more of a tapered fit, the Bauer 2X Pro pants are a similar shape and fit to the original Bauer Vapor 1X goal pants. The fit in the pants aims to be very loose in the leg to prevent any sort of interference, the 2x pants then begin to taper in before becoming wide at the top again providing the option to tuck your chest protector.
Waist Closure & Internal Belt
The Vapor goal pants are very simple to put on because they only have one main strap. The pants run the innerbelt through the front of the pants in order to tighten up the pants with only one strap. The Fast Strap, first used on the 1X Chest and Pants, is designed to be tugged tight and pulled upwards to release, resulting in a simple set up system that is comfortable and quick. The innerbelt on the 2X pants is also able to be removed and set up completely on the outside, in order to conform to certain league rules that ban the use of inner belts. Lastly, the Vapor 2X inner belt uses ThermoCore to increase the comfort of these pants.
The hips use a similar style of protection that the elbows do on the 2X chest protector. Using the Dynamic 2.Flex system, the hips have 2 layers of protection that move without interfering with each other, allowing you to move any direction and remain protected.
The Bauer 2x goal pants have great groin protection, wrapping the barrel almost entirely around the front face of your leg and the majority of the groin. The use of Curv Composite is designed to make the 2X pants more protective and allow them to keep their form longer without sacrificing integrity. There are also pillow cushions attached on the inside of the groin that are easily removable.
The thigh protection is great on these pants, using Curv Composite, the thighs have more than enough protection. The benefits of Curve Composite allow you to remain protected while also wearing one of the lightest pants on the market. The use of curve composite ensure that you won't have to deal with plastic cracking from shots.
Bauer also allows you to extend the pants by an inch through their zipper design, this way whether you're growing, or just want a longer leg on your pants, you can do it quickly and easily.
Knee Pad Attachment
The pants do have a knee pad attachment, although it is only designed for the Vapor 1X specific knee pads. Using a loop on the interior of the pant, any knee pads that attach similarly would work although 1X knee pads are the idea choice.
Sizes & Colors
These pants are available in sizes Small through Extra-Large and only available in black.
