Your hockey pants protect your midsection from the bottom of your shoulder pads to the top of your shin pads. Above the waist, the pants should extend up to the lower rib cage and the bottom of your shoulder pads.
At the knee, the pants should overlap the top of your shin pads by one or two inches to provide coverage even when you bend your knee.
Your pants should fit loosely enough to allow a full range of motion in your waist and hips, but not so loose that they shift out of position.
Most pants include a belt so that you can secure the pants firmly at your waist. For most players, your waist size can be used to select hockey pants.
