The Protectón, as its name implies, is a padded protective models for when things become interesting and the legs are at risk of suffering hits. These pants themselves consist of two different pieces: a padded set (combination of several thick cotton fabrics plus a thin and elastic foam layer) and an external, "decorative" set in the style of the usual Pascalón or Lansquetón.
Although at the beginning we offered the possibility or ordering both pieces joined together at the waist, we didn't take long to notice it felt way more practical to have them separatedly. Despite being slightly more expensive this way, the resulting advantages in terms of hygiene (air drying the inner garment), versatility (the outer garment can be worn independently if desired) and conveniency for transport and storage make it well worth the extra money.
The padded set offers medium protection against hits. It's more protective than average 350N fencing trousers, but less than thick, semi-rigid foam padding or, of course, hard plastic protections (riot gear, etc.). The main goal is to achieve a balanced compromise between protection, mobility and aesthetics. The set includes extra padding in the front-outside of the thighs, which is where - from experience - the more worrying hits tend to land.
This desing is 100% compatible with kneepad protections.
The desired set of pants plus 75€ for the padded piece.
Materials: thick cotton fabrics, thin foam.
Weight: around 900g (may vary depending on the client's measurements).
Ordering the padded piece entitles the client to two free pockets for the outer garment.
The outside layer may be customized depending on the chosen model.
