Pant problem
 
I may have bought pants smaller than I should have. I am 5'8 and have a waist of 32 so I bought RBK 6 men's small because that's what their chart indicates as well as 160 pounds...I'm 180....(I don't get a chance to really try stuff on since their are no shops close to me). I feel really I'm between a medium and a small. The pants feel a little tight,but not terribly bad...anything I can do to loosen them up a tad?

Wear them around the house. Break them in.

Another trick is to remove some the padding from the inside. I've done this before, because I felt that the padding was restricting some of my movement - and the padding wasn't crucial to my protection, either.

What have you taken out? Feels like part of the tightness is some padding behind my leg...I don't remember my other pants having this...

if you play a decent level of hockey i suggest keeping the pads in your pants... it's common for one to take out the foam pieces on the back of your legs (hamstring area) as it never used to exist there. The pads will lessen the blow if you were to get hit with a slapshot. Taking pads out of pants is similar to those that don't wear shoulder pads in non contact leagues. You drastically increase your chance of getting hurt from a needless injury. You may not get crushed into the boards but you can still get slashed, hit with pucks and thrown to the ice..

Myself... I stand at 5'9ish and I've always warn pants that are a little bigger for me (not a ton, but enough so they fit on my comfortably). If you haven't trashed the pants yet... go back to where you bought them. Tell them you made a mistake and that you would like to EXCHANGE them for a bigger pair. The store should have no problems with it at all.
