The Philadelphia Flyers Cooperall Pants were a type of hockey pants worn by the Flyers during the 1981-82 NHL season. The pants were distinctive in that they were designed as a one-piece, covering both the legs and the waist in a single garment. The pants were made of a heavy-duty nylon material and featured padding for protection.
The Cooperall Pants were controversial when they were first introduced, as many players felt that the one-piece design limited their mobility and made it difficult to move on the ice. There were also concerns about the pants being too warm, as they covered a larger area of the body than traditional hockey pants.
The Flyers were the only team to use the Cooperall Pants during the 1981-82 season, and they abandoned the design after just a few months. While other teams did not widely adopt the Cooperall Pants, they remain a unique and memorable part of Flyers history.
Today, traditional hockey pants are still used by players at all levels of sport. These pants are typically made of a lightweight and durable material such as nylon or polyester, and feature padding and ventilation to protect players and keep them cool during games.
