For me, when I bought them I was looking for protection first, weight second. I really like the fit and the protection they offer. They aren't what I'd call light but definitely not a heavy pant. They have laces and a draw strap. Zippers on inner legs that I don't feel a need to unzip. No problems with binding/tugging when skating. They felt a little stiff the first two skates but seem to break-in fast. Don't even notice them anymore. Good QUALITY pants and I like them a lot. I'm six feet, 210 lbs. I wear size 54's. 36-38 waist. Actual waist size is 36. Could have gone down one size I think as they fit slightly larger than my last size 54 Tacklas.

Don't have any input on the Bauer Nexus 1000's.
