Comments: I love my franchise pants. I will never buy another brand except Warrior.
They are mobile, have lots of padding, and last a long time. Don't pass these up.
The Franchise pants are very comfortable, but definitely run larger than most pants. As a rule of thumb, if you are on the lower
range of their waist scale, go to the size below. For example, I am a 32Ó waist and wear a S +1 for length. The leg zippers are also
a nice touch if you wanted a bit more leg room while skating.
The Franchise pants provide a great deal of protection, especially in the hips, thighs, lower back and coccyx (which I feel a lot of
retail pants lack). Ever fall on your tailbone and have that extreme pain? I have and thatŐs why I specifically like pants that provide
a great deal of protection in this area. I have blocked many shots and have endured much stick work and not once have I ever felt
pain; superior protection from Warrior.
The pants are not heavy and do not weigh you down or restrict your movement in any way. Actually they feel very nice on your
body and have a good contour.
I own 3 pair of Warrior Franchise pants and have been using them for quite some time and they are in excellent condition. The
only damage per se is that one of the W buttons/rivets on the hang strap has come off, otherwise they are extremely durable.
Dasherboard burns and slashes have not torn through the strong exterior of the pants.
The mold resistant materials on the inside have been fantastic. I have CMM Pro tack pants that have developed mold issues in the
past, but these materials are extremely efficient at preventing bacteria and mold.
I love my Franchise, I just wish the sizing was a bit more accurate (an M without a +1 would be cheaper). Other than that, they are
a phenomenal pair of pants that are definitely worth the money. If you go custom, I would also recommend the beefed up plastics
package and that is a nice addition.
