Tight fitting protective pants which are easy to move in but require a set of protective overshorts to avoid unnecessary wear to the lycra materials. The Hotpants are constructed from a top quality Lycra material which has lots of stretch. This stretch, coupled with very careful placement of the protection panels means you will be able to move very easily, and therefore quickly. Protection is provided by 13 individual panels of foam. Areas needing the most protection are covered by panels that combine closed cell foam and formed polyethylene plastic. This combination gives maximum protection. Areas requiring less protection feature panels of closed cell foam. All panels are backed by soft open cell foams. This increases protection and takes the sting away from the ball contact. Protection is extended upwards around the kidney area. OBO Hot Pants have a waist belt and front velcro to ensure there is a perfect fit and to also ensure they do not move around the body during extreme (and amazing) movements.
