    Can you use an inline girdle on Ice is there that much of a difference? I know Ice hockey girdles will have more protection but has anyone used a inline girdle and could you get by with one?

    I don't know about all but I know my inline girdle will not help at all in ice.

    I wonder if it is one with what seems like adeguate padding if it would work. I want to wear girdles but I don't want to spend $85.

    ofcourse you can get by but if it's a league then you might be forced to spend 30bux and get hockey pants. like all equipment, you don't really need it till you actually get hit there.

    Depends on the girdle and the league. How protective is the girdle? How physical and fast paced is the league? If it's just a friendly beer league and you don't fall down a lot then I'm sure any girdle is fine.

    thats pretty bad luck, but i don't think there's much protection on the inner thigh anyways. played without a jock for a year, always had the glove infront of my junk when shots came but was lucky enough to never get hit there. :laugh:

    It'll protect you from falls and bumps, but even the most expensive, highest model inline girdle you buy will most likely not protect you from a mid to hard slap shot with an ice puck to the thigh area.

    I still do this. Pick up games (and some league games) I dont cup it at all. Reason being is that my cup is attached to my inline girdle (go figure), and outdoor games in the summer =way to hot to wear that. I dont block shots to begin with, but always glove in front of the testicular area if any kind of shot is coming through.

    stupid? probably.
