Our pickup games allow slapshots so some sort of protection would be good but not full all out armor.
The main thing is it has got to be lightweight and mobile, non-restricive is the goal here.
I really wish the local shops had more stuff to check out in person otherwise I would just order something online. Reading the tackla sizing I would use a 36"-38" waist Tackla size 45 X-Large
I'm looking at Bauers, RBK and Eagle pants online now. I am glad you mentioned the eagle stuff, never heard of it other than seeing some gloves posted in here once in a while.
tackla size 45 is JR X-large. Sr. X-large would be around 54-56 i believe.
