Looks like honeycomb polymer reinforcement.

Absolutely. You can buy it in sheets. I think they might have stuck it between two sheets of foam, cause it's usually encased in a pretty rough housing.

After wearing these in a game I soon realized why some people cut off the tops of their shin pads. These kept getting caught on the bottom of my pants, looking and feeling pretty awkward. The solution: sew some elastic to keep the tops down. Worked like a charm. I have a few other mods in mind for these too...

Good idea Mincy. When I was a kid I had Jofas that did the same thing, I had to tape my thighs to prevent the flaps from catching the pants.

That is a good idea. It happens to me from time to time with mine, but not too often. It used to when I wore a pair of RBK 520s though. Literally every skate. Numerous times. It was maddening.

I use the garter jock and have not much give to my socks when done up. This never happens to me!

Thanks guys. I've been looking into getting a garter jock, the velcro on what I wear now doesn't hold pro stock socks anymore. Shock Doctor has an all-in-one I'm looking into buying. Seems to have good reviews.

I have that cup but use it with a different jock. It's huge! Definitely bigger than most of the other ones I've seen that come with other hockey jocks. It also doesn't go as far between your legs as other. That part at the bottom is shorter than others.

Best Garter/Jock combo around. If you can get it you won't regret it.

Most people take the top of the shins off, Edler adds more.

I suspect for defensive protective reasons, lots of 100 mph shots coming near him
