BAUER Pant Vapor X60 - Ice Hockey Shorts
BAUER Ice Hockey Pant / Short Vapor X60
The Bauer Vapor X60 ice pant is the premier pant in Bauer's Vapor pant line. The Vapor X60 pant is built for the player demanding the most protection and mobility out of their pant. Typically, pro-level protection doesn't come with great mobility, but Bauer has re-engineered the Vapor pad taking into account stance and stride characteristics. The result, is a lightweight, pro-level pant with a contoured "hockey stance" fit.
Bauer's new Free Flex Technology covers the kidney and hip areas with four different pads. Allowing the pant to flex freely, maximizing leg extension and freeing up your upper body to rotate easier. All movements that will help the player improve their game. Combined with Bauer's new Ergonomic Hockey fit, a fit that Bauer has designed after a player in the proper hockey stance, the Vapor X60 ice pant really fits and moves with the player.
For protection the X60 pant uses traditional high density foams with ribbed poly inserts in the thigh and hip pads. Although in the kidney and spine pads, Bauer uses a Vent Armour foam. Vent Armour is foam and plastic composite material laid out in a honeycomb structure. The Vent Armour foam is very protective and is 25% lighter than traditional poly and foam inserts.
And to be sure the all this padding stays lightweight and fits well late in the 3rd period, Bauer uses a Thermo Core+ liner. A liner that is not only moisture wicking and anti-bacterial, but is treated with Xylitol, a treatment that acts a cooling agent, drawing heat off the player.
