  1. New for 2017, the Super Tacks is CCM's top-end girdle. Here's it out of the box: The shell is removable, with leg zippers and +1 adjustment. It has three points in which it attaches to the girdle. There is a second loop under the belt in which the shell strap hooks into. Adjustable spine pad, with D3O. Now, here's the girdle without the shell. Open front crotch. However, there is a step-in part in the seat of the girdle. Opening it up, you can see it. The tailbone pad is built in, similar to 9k. There are 4 adjustment tabs in the girdle. Two of them extend all the way up to the kidney pad and bring the back of the thigh pad up... And the other two bring the front of the thigh pad up. Hip pads are similar to 9k. There's a lot to like here. Having the open crotch is good, and there's no shortness of protection as well. However, two things could be potentially nagging - the step-in part is one. It doesn't really seem to be necessary - the points it's attaching to is the groin pad area and the tailbone pad. The second one is the lack of stretch material in the top of the girdle. The only part where there's any sort of stretch is a 1.5" piece where the velcro tab is that mates to the belly pad. I'm hoping to skate in them shortly. Any questions or additional pictures needed, please ask. Thanks goes to CCM for sending me this set. I've been a girdle wearer for almost 20 years so it's a category that always intrigues me.
  2. How is the padding in the Bauer Supreme 1S pants (or hybrid girdle, if you consider it that), in the gluteus maximus area? I forgot to mention in the video, that I had the same issue with the Warrior Dynasty girdle (lack of padding in the gluteus maximus area), which was one of the reasons I got into the Super Tacks girdle. Of course (in true, clueless form), I forgot to check this area for proper padding, in my excitement when I saw how freely I would be moving in these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yThFjbVtNv4&feature=youtu.be
  3. TH has the new Warrior Dynasty girdle available for pre-order. I currently use and love the Projekt girdle. I really like projekt's built in "cup holder". Anyone know if the new Dynasty girdle has this feature? I assume no because there is no mention of it on TH's site. I also wish Warrior would've added velcro to attach socks. Trying to decide whether to wait for the Dynasty or buy another projekt now that they are on clearance.
  4. Been searching for a Warrior Projekt Mid Body Girdle in an XL but cannot find one anywhere. Can any one help me?
  5. Switched from pants to the dynasty girdle, love the weight and freedom. Only thing is the tailbone have had two separate occasions where I fell and it's been really sore for weeks. Well that and the leg openings are huge with no adjustments. Don't really want to go back to pants. Thinking about the reebok 9k instead. Doing research on here and everyone says how the protection is great. Would it be much better in the tailbone area? Also need a shell, not a fan of the new dynasty girdle shell. Would probably follow advice I have read and get a pant shell to wear over the top. Just playing men's league a few times a week.

    Warrior Dynasty Girdle (and Shell)

    Height - 6'2" Weight - 215 lbs Pant Size: XL Shell Size: XL Time of use: About 8 months, 2-3x/week Other pants previously used: CCM Crazy Light, Warrior Pro Stock Franchise Level of play: Beer Leaguer Location: In very hot and humid rinks Fit - 6/10 In the store, and in the early usage, I thought these were the best pants/girdle on the market, and could not find fault with them. They fit like a pair of tight shorts, which is nice. The thigh guard's ability to move with my leg is an infinite improvement over the pants that I previously wore (although I have never tried a true girdle, and suspect that the true girdle would be even better). However, once you get skating and sweaty, the shortcoming of the belt closure system become quickly apparent. Most pants offer the skate lace, plus the belt. The other girdle has a nice big piece in lieu of a belt, which offers a more comprehensive close. With the belt, if I cinch it tight, so that the pants hold in place with all the crouching and bending and striding and twisting, then I can get a nice hold, but there is pressure on my waist which I am not thrilled about. If I loosen it up, so that I do not feel this pressure, then I find myself yanking the pants up during faceoffs. According to the size chart, I am between L and XL. In the store, when I tried on a Large, it showed some distress in the mesh around the crotch, and figuring this could become a durability issue, I went with the XL, which still seemed to give a nice snug fit (as it still does). 4 points out of 10 may seem like a lot to deduct, for one area not fitting to my liking. However, after having come to my own senses (that this is the only pant or girdle on the market that uses such a skimpy closure system), I am thinking, "What were they thinking?" Ok, maybe since it is a snug fit all around, Warrior did not think that they would need more than just this belt? I do not know, but I do know that the belt system in the previous girdle had issues (unrelated to my gripe, but issues nonetheless) with its belt closure system. Protection: 7/10 In the thigh guard, tail bone, hip pad, and kidney area, these are pretty solid. However, I would not trust the thin, medium density foam inserts that cover the femoral triangle. Sure, I have taken pucks off of these pads, after having deflected passes when I was forechecking, but I would not trust these to stop slapshots. Weight - 10/10 This thing is feather light. I barely notice it when it is on (and not cinched tightly). Durability - 3/10 On the bright side, the mesh that holds it together, and gives it great breathability and ventilation, has held up. However, the plastic inserts are pressing through the front top area, in multiple places, and require repairs: This is also a successful repair, where the back was splitting: I take very good care of my gear; always drying it after use, and leaving it alone when not being used. So, I chalk this up to "not my error." Intangibles 8/10 If you: -Play Forward and do not plan on blocking a ton of shots. -Play in a hot/ humid rink -Travel with your gear, so that weight is a premium factor when checking gear for airline flights -Do not mind the belt closure system -Are ok with the pants lasting 6-9 months, before you may require another pair Then these pants are perfect for you. However, if you want a pair of pants/ girdle to last longer, and/ or the other items above are not of prime consideration, then I would say look elsewhere. I do not expect these to last much longer, and am debating whether to try the MX3 girdle (for mobility/ snugness of fit to the body) or the QuickLites (for lightweightness, and durability) as my next pair. I will definitely not be buying another Dynasty girdle (although I will still buy Warrior. I do not think that this is a poor quality or manufacturing issue, as much as it is a design flaw, in something that was an innovation, so Warrior is still all good in my book). Conclusion I am happy to have tried these out. If Warrior can fix the belt closure system, beef up the femoral triangle area (perhaps thicker, higher density foams), and fix the issue of the sharp plastic inserts pressing through in the areas noted, then these would be perfect. This pant does some things exceptionally well, and perhaps better than any other pant on the market. However, it comes up short in the areas referenced, for my preferences. Overall score - 34/50 ** Quick note on the Shell: The shell required a quick repair out of the gate, on the velcro closure system (which I understand was an issue for every user that I know of who also used this shell). However, since the repair, everything has held up just find, and I like the mesh in the back for extra breathability. This is my go-to shell, amongst a pro stock Warrior and 2 custom shells that I had made.

  8. Hi, 2 Months ago, I got checked from behind and felt pretty hard on the ice. You know, feet up in the air and landing complete horizontal on the ice. Result: lower back and especially the tail-bone started to hurt a lot and I was out for 3 weeks. Still today I can tell where I landed on the ice. The bruises are gone but still very sensitive. My pants are Bauer Nexus 600 and if I have to believe the 'rich guys' way to cheap to play beerleague hockey. (Our rich guys are the ones that wear Pro gear like APX2 and buy new skates every 3 months) They told me that my pants have not enough protection and I should buy more high end gear. Total one (girdle), APX2, ... (Bauer and RBK is what's sold here. Bauer is what our team buys) For now I am using a Snowboard crash pant, borrowed from a friend. It helps a lot but it makes my hockeypants feeling less maneuverable. So now I'm a bit stuck in what to do. Keep my pants like they are and try not to fall on my back or go for new pants, with added protection. Or buy me a crash pant. Any advice or experience? thanks
  9. I received my pair of the Bauer TotalONE NXG girdle last week, but I was out on vacation then, so I'm finally doing the write-up now. The first picture shows the pant completely assembled. Here is the rear of the pant. The spine pad is much more substantial than previous Bauer girdles...PoronXRD is layered in behind a poly insert. The tailbone piece is also segmented; previous girdles had a solid piece. Here is the shell, removed. There are leg zippers on the shell, however, there isn't a "window", so it is pretty open - it is missing the window so that you can adjust the girdle legs if you want to. I don't unzip legs so not a concern for me. Here are the attachment points on the side. There is also one on the back of the girdle. As you can see, visible panels showing the upgraded padding on the kidney and hip. Here is the kidney pad, removed. There is an additional foam backing behind the main pad. Here is the back of the girdle. It has the vented foam throughout the back, as did previous ones, however, there's more of it. Here's the girdle, completely open. It still has the pockets where you can remove the padding to wash it. One difference from previous girdles is that the supplemental padding in the front that is in non-critical areas is sewn shut on the NXG. Now, the previous ones were prone to creasing and eventually falling out because it wasn't a very substantial foam, but for those who used to remove it (like I used to) you may want to consider making a hole and pulling it out. The padding is one piece that goes from the top to the bottom of the leg, and even wraps around with the strap. The fit is identical to my ONE95, however, a bit tighter, which makes sense; after use, the girdle will stretch and relax. I however encountered a problem mating the shell to the girdle. It's a bit too tight for me; I would prefer it to be looser in that aspect, but I understand they are going for a streamlined pant. So for now, I'll be reviewing it without the shell, but hope to lose some pounds so that it works out better for me. I know my vacation didn't help in that regard. Thanks goes out to John Davidson, who is the Protective category product manager at Bauer. If you have any questions, ask them in this thread.
  10. All prices are negotiable and discounts for buying multiple items Mission Axiom T9 - Size 8D - asking $250 Selling these because I switched to my converted ice skates. I bought them May 30th of last year (HM), so they might be still covered by the 1 year warranty that mission offers should anything go wrong. I got them for our summer roller league and the wheels and bearings that came with the skates (Mission Swiss LE 608 and RinkRat Hornet Spilt XXX Grip 76A) were used exactly 11 times on sport court - 10 games 1 practice. Most of the use I got out of these was playing on smooth concrete over the summer (different set of wheels and bearings). Wheels look to be in really good shape, you can see in the pictures that they still have a lot of life left in them. Both boots are in very good condition, except for some minor aesthetic scrapes you can see in the pictures. They were aired out after every use, and still smell like new skates. They were baked once. Still have the original laces in them if that matters at all. I tried to take as many pics as possible - gallery: http://imgur.com/a/9jUyN#0 If you have any other questions about them lemme know! Gallery of evrything else for sale: http://imgur.com/a/T1t2R#0 Warrior Projekt Girdle - Medium asking $90 Bought and tried these out over the summer. I thought at first that I liked the girdle better than traditional hockey pants, but when I went back to pants again I ended up liking that better. They are in almost new condition, I used them maybe 5 times. I took out the original belt when I bought them since it was so tiny and replaced it with a string from a pair of mesh shorts. I might have the original belt around the house somewhere if you really want it. Edit: found it http://i.imgur.com/J9n5TGH.jpg Warrior Syko shell - New - Medium asking $30 - will lower price if you want to bundle with girdle Tackla Shell - Medium - asking $25 - will lower price if you want to bundle with girdle Decent condition. You can see the back loop needs to be sewn back on (look in gallery), and the stitching right around the butt is a little loose. Used them for roller hockey, and a few times on the ice.
