    I got a pair of bauer 6000 pants medium size. the fit is a little too snug/tight. but when I try large size pants (34-36) the fit feels a little too loose.
    anybody knows what pants offer a good balance between medium and large?

    thanx

    X-medium? I don't know one brand of hockey pants from another but mine lace up in the front where the fly would be and there's a nylon strap for the belt. I just tie and strap them as much as needed. If they start sliding down as I play I retie/restrap when I get to the bench.

    Get the bigger size and adjust as necessary. If you're still having a problem you can wear suspenders with them. Have buttons sewn on if they aren't there already. :dunno:

    I never worn the 6000, but they just seem to be more slimmer fitting than other pants. Try on different brands as sizing seems to be a bit different too. Or get Mission pants. They got adjustable legs so won't be too baggy...but don't know about the waist sizing-- maybe suspenders. Or have you tried wearing a pair of shorts, like Itech Jock Shorts or just gym shorts, that adds an inch or so to your wasit to get pants more snug.

    I wear Itech 8000 pants. I came from the Bauer 1000s (real low end) and the Itech fit a lot snugger, if you thought bauer med too tight and bauer large too loose, try the itech large.

    They are probably good for what ails you

    went to the local sports store this afternoon. I tried on the CCM Tacks 692 pants. the fit and length was perfect. think I'll go with those ones
    anybody have those pants? good or bad quality?

    bought the CCM 692's size large this afternoon and just tried em on with my shin pads. the fit around the waste is perfect...but the fit is even tighter than my Bauer 6000 medium size around the legs.
    the length of the legs is fine, but it's too tight. when I walk the pant's legs come up my and under my shin pads. so I imagine when I'll be skating, I'll be always pulling down the legs.
    basicly, what I'm looking for is pants that don't have tight diameter around the legs. I'm only 5'7...but I have big legs so I need pants that have a loose leg fit.


    damn, so it's back the store tomorrow.

    I see that your on ModSquad too. But yeah, I Itechs arn't bad. If you wanted the more traditional pant the Itech 4000 are good or the newer style with the 6000 pant. Mission pants are similar too since it's really Mission/Itech hockey.

    Or just leave the zippers open on your CCMs...

    Yes, i agree with Allsmokenopancake, try Itech pants...or Reebok. I had that problem with a pair of CCM pants i bought so i got rid of it and got a pair of reebok pants and they havent given me any problems yet.
