These pants are recommended for training in order to prevent injury. The Eva Padding is placed on the hips in order to prevent injury when diving multiple dives in training sessions. They are usually used under shorts and are produced with a stretchy Spandex material to compress your muscles. They should be worn tight for maximum performance. The Kevlar on the Knees and shins is the same material used by Military in their gear. It is basically indestructible. Your knees and shins, along with your hips, are usually the body parts more injury prone. With These pants you will reduce highly the bruising on your hips and the scrapes on your knees and shins. If you are injury prone we suggest that you use them under your uniform kit in games also. We don’t suggest the use of these under other goalkeeper pants. It may cause discomfort due to extra heat or can become too heavy on rainy days.
