Also hockey pants provide more protection. Socks are tight fitting over your shin pads = less fabric causing resistance.

I have no issue with how hockey equipment is. Only thing that ever bothers me is that my elbow pads always slide down.
Sums up my feelings on the gear. I actually like the way the whole get-up looks; maybe I don't like change but the pants and socks are cool to me.
