I was using a Bauer girdle, but it wasn't giving me a full 2". It was a little longer and I could wear it a little lower. Plus, it didn't look retarded on me like some regular size ice pants do. I've since gone to Tackla +2's and I'll never go back. Much more freedom of movement and actually better protection. What really prompted me to switch were gaps on the girdles I had worn that I kept finding when I hit the ice. My first switch was to an Easton S13 long, but the protection just wasn't there. The Tackla's offer great protection with no gaps, though it was a ***** to find +2s in those anywhere.

BTW, I actually got absolutely demolished in a game this [past Saturday night, hardest hit I've ever absorbed in my life, and went down hard on my ass. I'm glad I had the Tackla's on.
