Made in Canada, the Vaughn VE8 Pro Carbon senior goal pant brings pro-level protection to a lightweight, flexible fit. Keeping the same Carbon-enhanced construction, the VE8 Pro Carbon goalie pants introduce upgrades in material and design to an already proven pant.

Having a mobile, yet protective fit is the first priority for most goaltenders looking for a new pant. The VE8 Pro Carbon features a tapered fit at the waist, along with multi-section flex blocks for optimal mobility. A shaped lower shell that is wider at the hips, paired with extra wide stretch sections in key areas, give the VE8 Pro Carbon SR goalie pant a flexible fit without sacrificing coverage.

For elevated protection on the VE8 Pro Carbon pant, Vaughn has updated the use of familiar materials . The thigh portion of the VE8 Pro Carbon utilizes large HD foam guards for lightweight protection. Throughout the entirety of the pant, Carbon fiber is used, which allows for lightweight protection. On the back of the VE8, Vaughn has added a new larger tailbone and lower back pad comprised of HD foam , which improves the overall fit and protection of the pant.

With a similar feel to previous Velocity pants, the VE8 Pro Carbon molds classic feel with modern materials and will help goalies leverage that much more performance when they need it.

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.
