Recognizing what is worth bringing back is one of the best things a company can do to to make their customers happy. Realizing that lots of goalies loved the V7 XR Pro Carbon pants, Vaughn has re-released them under the V Elite Carbon name.

The VE8 V Elite Carbon senior goalie pants offer quite a few of the features that make the VE8 Pro Carbon a competitive pant. Featuring the same Carbon Enhanced Performance, the V Elite Carbon goalie pant is just as light and offers the same NHL level protection that the VE8 Pro Carbon does.

Unlike the VE8 Pro Carbon, the V Elite Carbon goal pant has an internal belt. The internal belt holds the pant up very much like a set of suspenders, and allows goalies to wear the pant larger than they normally would be able to for increased surface area in the net.

The V Elite pant offers the same great Vaughn build and feel, however adds in a modern take on the pant with the inclusion of the internal belt.

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.
