The Tackla Force 9000 Ice Pant offers some of the most extensive coverage and protection you're going to find anywhere today. They also boast a tapered style fit and feel, which is snug around the hips and plenty of volume within the legs.
Around the waist, molded PE kidney guards are anatomically shaped to completely protect you from any type of cross-check or dirty play. Both sides come together to meet the floating spine guard, made up of high-density foam and attached to the waist with elastic nylon straps.
Whether you're dishing out the big hip check or taking one, the Tackla 9000 Pants cover you from almost any angle thanks to the anatomically shaped hip protection. A unique feature to the Tackla series is the AMS (Air Management System) that features natural air pockets in all of the major impact areas. Acting as a cushion, it boosts protection while providing a very comfortable fit.
Offering solid durability to wear and tear is the 500D Polyester construction with strategic panels on the front and back to help provide better airflow and breathability. Running down the center and inside each leg are highly stretchable gussets to help excel mobility and maximize stride efficiency. Included on each leg are zippered openings with Velcro closures, a design perfect for the players who enjoy more volume around the legs or who put their skates on before their pants.
While the Force 9000's may not be the lightest pants on the market, they excel at offering some of the best coverage and protection. They are highly suited to players who are physical, block shots, and not afraid to get in the battle.
