View Full Version : Question about inline pant fitting
06-12-2003, 06:48 PM
I'm new to roller hockey, 6'1" tall, and I recently ordered a pair of Hyper Titanium '03 pants, size large. I checked out two fitting guides before picking my size. One said measure from belly button to the floor, and then it calculated the proper size for me, which was large. The other said that 5'8" - 5'11" should get size large.
Well, I got large and have received the pants and put them on, and they feel a bit big. I don't know if I have them on in the proper place, I had them strapped where I would wear normal pants, sitting on the hip. When standing in my skates, the cuff of the pant completely covers the laces and is quite close to going over the toe. Am I wearing the pants too low, should I hike them up to my belly button or so, or should I go and get a pair of mediums? Thanks for any advice

I'd say they fit you just fine, mine do about the same, they are XL's only I'm 5'10 1/2". However they are CCM's and not Hypers, just be sure to tuck them in the back of your skate so they don't interfere with your wheels.

going strictly on what is cool-for-the-moment this month with elite players 14-18 years old (who we all know set all practical fashion trends):
wear 'em as low or high on the hips as ya want. the baggier the better. set the bottom of the cuff so it breaks across the bottom four laces on the boot, and the back comes about a half-inch above the bottom of the boot. tape the pant leg tight against the shin guard just below the knee, and also about 6-8 inches lower. That's the deal...
Frankly, they dramatically resemble a cool set of Bell-Bottoms I wore during high school in the 60's...go figure...
Also, however, please experiment with your own style. Check out the 14-18 year old hotshots in your rink; if ya wanta be cool, these are the go-to guys for style...

I am 6'1-6'2 and wear them around the hip and they work fine for me, a little tape should do the trick ;-)

Danny this is true. Baggy is in. You dont want them to fit like a regualr pair of pants, some companies even make them extra loose and fitting unlike the older models of pants about 5 years ago. But like I said in my above post, they should be a perfect fit for you.

I guess my main concern is the heavier material that would be for the knee and lower leg. I would assume it is supposed to cover the knee, but it doesn't quite all the way. The length isn't too bad, although inseam 1-2" shorter might be nice. It wouldn't be so much of an issue if I wouldn't have to pay shipping to return them

They look like how they fit me, a good fit. BTW good choice on the colors ;-)

My suggestion is to go to a local store and try a few on for size. See how each fits.
Also, I thought the same thing about where the knee would be on my pants when I got them, but when I bend my knee. The extra padding seems to be right in place.
