The 5k's are pretty decent. Lacking some of the better padding of course. I think the 7k's would be a GREAT compromise. I like them more than the Bauer pants for mobility and protection myself.
At this point, I'll pay for fit.
I feel like the Tackla 9000s are not sold in Canada. I'm not finding any link to anything other than ebay. I'm definitely going to hunt down the Tackla 951s which are listed on Hockey Life's site. I've heard many suggestions for them.
Those Reebok 7Ks are rather garish.
