Hockey Pants/Girdle?

Sorry for the ******** question but what is the difference between pants and girdles? Do I need both to play ice Hockey? Can someone recommend a cheap set?

Some people wear a girdle and a shell over them. Most ice hockey pants come with protection in them. Every once in awhile a puck will find its way through and leave a nice bruise on the inside of my thigh but I take the pain cause it's hockey.

girdles and shells offer a little bit more protection i find. there's a lot of spaces that a girdle will cover as compared to a regular hockey pant. the problem with that is most girdles will be heavier and less flexible because of the extra protection offered.

rbk has brought out their line of pants last season that are a hybrid girdle-shell and hockey pant depending on the version you get. the 7k pant last year is being replaced with the 8k this year and is a girdle-shell and hockey pant hybrid that is all in one pant.the 9k last year and 10k this year is another girdle-shell and hockey pant hybrid that is fully adjustable and the outer shell is removable for easy cleaning. both the top end and mid-high end pant is very flexible and quite light.

I was looking at these two. Theyre dirt cheap but I'm not really a serious player yet.

Do these provide moderate protection?

I think you got it backwards. Girdles are far more flexible and lighter but offer less protection. This has been my experience with pants/girdles.

I'd go with the missions, they are generally more form fitting and comfortable. I'd guess that there is not much difference between the two.
