    Looking for some new hockey pants, prefer ones that are loose-fitting/baggy. Was looking at the Bauer Nexus 800, anything in that price range is what I'd be going for. Any suggestions?

    nexus is a good place to start. i'd also take a look at ccm U+ 12, CS, CL(depending on what your pricepoint is and how much protection you want). then there's also the easton mako series.

    CCM is quite snug on the waist with thick and plush padding. Best bet is probably Nexus or older Supremes.

    Just curious, what's the advantage of baggy hockey pants?

    i respectfully disagree. imo, that was more true of the previous generation U+ and vector series(had v06's, flirted with the 08, and had U+07 and 09's). currently wearing CS and they don't seem nearly as tight in the waist as the previous generations. noticeably baggier in the legs too. as an example, size L fit perfectly for me in the waist for the vectors and previous U+, but is baggy on me in the CS(and the same for the CL's i tried on)...could've dropped down to M but I liked the way the legs fit on me in the L.

    Agree on the bagginess of legs, sticking to my assessment of the waist and kidneys.

    My Taklas are looser fitting than the Reeboks I tried, especially thorough the thighs. I don't know how they compare protection-wise though.

    My Easton ST16 pants are pretty loose fitting.
