What Are Hockey Pant Shells?

Think of it this way. Shells are designed to be the skin of your leg girdles. When placed over girdle padding, they cover and help keep your protective gear in place. Additionally, shells come in a wide array of colors, designs, etc. so that you and your teammates can match and look uniform.

How Do They Work?

Shells, when put over your girdle padding, work in the same way that pants do. They ensure that your pads are not only properly in line, and that your girdles aren’t slipping down when you skate.

Can I Put Them Over My Pants?

Yes -- you can also put shells over normal hockey pants, not just girdles. Just make sure that they’re properly sized.
