Bauer Vapor APX Ice Hockey Pants

If you’re in the market for a new pair of pants, you might want to look into the Bauer Vapor APX ice hockey pants. Due this April, the Bauer Vapor APX pants will be the new pro level pant in the Vapor series. The APX will pick up right where the X:60 pant left off in terms of pro level protection and materials.

When wearing the APX pants, you’ll notice more of an ergonomic fit compared to the traditional fit of the Supreme pants. The ergonomic fit will allow a player to maintain a natural forward leaning stance easier than they would be able to in a traditional fitting pant. Going right along with the fit, Bauer’s free-flex technology in the Vapor APX pants will provide some additional flexibility during each stride. Specifically, Bauer says “the free-flex hip construction maximizes extension in the skating stride while the free-flex kidney construction optimizes upper body movement for receiving passes and maneuvering in all game situations.” The APX pants will also feature leg zippers, with pleats, for those who prefer a bit of extra room.

Of course the most important part of the Vapor APX pants are the materials and protection. On the outside, Bauer has strategically used lycra stretch zones to increased flexibility of the pant on each stride. The 800 denier nylon is of the highest quality, and will lead to a durable pant that won’t rip or tear easily. Moving to the inside, Bauer’s 3D thermo-max+ liner will be used to help keep the APX pants dry and prevent odor and bacteria build up. For protection, Bauer went with their vent armor composite material in the spine and kidney areas. This lightweight material helps to absorb and disperse impacts so you don’t feel them. In addition, the spine protection will be adjustable to give you a more customized fit. You will also find a hip guard with poly inserts, as well as a 2-piece ergonomic thigh pad to further protect you from shots, slashes, or anything else that might come your way.

As I said, the Bauer Vapor APX ice hockey pants will make their way into retail stores and online shops in April. Let us know what you think of the new pants in the comments below, and sound off on whether or not you’re going to get a pair!
