    I would suggest looking at either the Bauer Supreme or Vapor pants (One95 or Vapor X60) will offer great protection; although I'm not sure about inside leg padding. The Tackla Air 9000's are supposed to be great pants as well.

    +1 for Tackla 9000's. Bought a pair last year and have been very happy.

    I have always been a fan of CCM pants, I'm still rotating my pair of Pro Tacks from a few years back. Other than that I liked my pair of Tackla's (9000's), but of current lineups you really can't go wrong with any of the top end offerings: CCM U+ Pro, Bauer Vapor X:60, etc...

    I don't think you'll find any pads with significant padding on the inner leg/thigh, it would impede your skating, and you basically never take pucks/slashes/whatever there anyways.

    There's not a ton of padding, but there is some on the Tackla, higher end Reebok, pro stock CCM pants. I had some Vapors and would get hit with pucks there frequently, basically it was a thin piece of nylon, sucked pretty bad.

    For the money I REALLY like the 7k and 9k pants. I decided to step up to the Tacklas because I've seen so many pairs that are 10+ years old and still going. But those Reeboks are really nice IMO.

    Yeah, you can get pants with a small amount of inner leg padding, but never much. Which is a good thing, because crossovers would be super awkward with bulky inner leg pads.

    I think they make jocks or compression shorts that have padding in them for football. I'm not sure if I've seen anything with padding on the inner thigh since that would impede you in any sport. If you're getting hit on the inner thigh crashing the net it sounds like you may want to stand up straight, face the puck and watch it all the way into the goalie. Unless you're playing with Al Iafrate you should be able to see it coming and adjust your body properly.

    currently wearing bauer one70s, got them one sale for 60 from 140 (older stock.. 08' i think)

    LOVE THEM, will stick with supremes most likely after this, offer better padding then vapours but i barely even notice them on the ice nice and light
    also got a pair of nice ccm girdles like them to but not a fan of having to use shells


    and if you dont mind spending the $$$ tacklas cant be beat my dad has a pair going on like 12 yrs still holding up like a beast lol
