Canadian Tackla(no longer being made under the Tackla name) is great. It has a lot of protection while retaining movement. Robust hip pads, solid tailbone protection and split thighs. Very similar to the Jofa 7000 but with more padding on the hips(9000/5000).
US Tackla is still available and is of lesser quality, it is made in Asia and distributed by Montreal Hockey Co.(Not the Montreal that Warrior acquired).
Canadian Tackla was made and distributed(In Canada) by Vaughn. When Vaughn acquired Eagle they discontinued the Tackla brand name so they can distribute their pants in the US and Can.
The Tackla you saw in the NHL was made by Vaughn... Aaand since it's 50K per category to advertise in the NHL you (should) currently only see Eagle pants from Vaughn.
