inlinehockey: girdle or ice pants ??

just curious what you prefer... had an argument with a friend who claims ice hockey pants have more "style" and he therefore would never wear a girdle... what do you think ?

For inline, I'd go with a girdle and inline trousers. You generally don't need as much protection and you get slightly better mobility with this setup.

If your friend is concerned about "style", he may be in the wrong sport. I agree that the girdle and pants for inline works well, you don't need all the extra padding and the girdle and pants tends to be a little cooler.

If he cares about style, let him know that anyone wearing ice hockey pants while playing roller is pretty much laughed at.

I still don't really see a need to wear a girdle in roller either.

I'm cheap and have a 44-46" waist. Even if I could find a pair of inline pants in my size, I wouldn't want to drop $50+ on them.

But yeah, if you're cheap and can back your game up enough to deter all the mockery, go ahead and wear ice pants.

I just get away with wearing them by being notably insane and bigger than everyone else.

Depends on the skill level.

Personally, I would never be caught dead without a girdle.

For practical reasons? Girdle. Lighter, you can wear roller pants over it, and it's protective enough.

However, who cares what other people think. Lots of folks in Van here wear ice pants in the league, since they don't have, or don't bother to buy roller girdles.

ok, half the "hockey pants" out there are multi-colored and you look like a deuschebag in em.. sooo there goes the style.. anyways, I only wear a girdle with inline pants if its a puck... I've even worn hockeypants w/ suspenders... mainly because i can move around better... If its REALLY hot, just wear those jock shorts under the inline pants, and thats all the protection you need..

whatever floats your boat.

Naw man you got it all wrong roller hockey is all about the stylish uni's. If you play serious roller hockey you see the sweetest pants, jerseys and gloves.

I guess, some of the team uni's are pretty sweet looking... I've played in statewars, and dynamo leagues and some of the teams jerseys are pretty cool...


But i think he meant just individually, and in that case most of the roller hockey pants look like clown pants

I wear a light girdle and inline pants because it gives me more mobility than ice pants and socks. You can find lots of pants in all black or black-grey so the post about wild colors really isn't on the mark. A few guys in our league wear ice pants and socks. It's a free country.
