Alkali CA9 Roller Hockey Girdle

Recommended Posts

Alkali CA9 Roller Hockey Girdle
Size: S/M

Reviewer Info:
Level of play: Beer League
Frequency of play: 2 times per week
Size: 6'1, 185lbs

Fit: Excellent tight fitting girdle. It fits like a UA compression short, snug to the body. If you are looking for a loose fitting pant, look elsewhere. This girdle is extremely comfortable.

Protection: This pad offers good protection, but they're not tanks, they are great for my usage, but you're not gonna stop slapshots with it, tailbone protection is decent but a little thicker & wider padding could be a good addition.

Weight: You won't notice you're wearing it. Compression shorts do their job of making the pant lightweight. The padding doesn't absorb moisture so that's very good as well.

Durability: So far so good. Been used for about 9 months and has held up great, no fraying or breakdown in any areas, just the alkali logo that is gone, otherwise great durability.

Intangibles: I've seen quite a few roller hockey girdles out there but this one is a lot lighter than any of the others and as opposed to a couple of crash pads these are compression shorts which do affect performance, they are lighter, they wick away moisture much better than any of the girdles/crash pads out there and they have a more streamlined look compared to others too. You can wear the girdle for any sport that involves falling. (I've used it for outdoor hockey and soccer goalkeeping)

Conclusion: Great girdle! Great mobility, Durability and performance.

Overall Rating: 9.75/10 (39/40)
