The word integrated, when it comes to football pants, means that the pants come with all the pads you need sewn into them already. Most integrated football pants are built with seven pads throughout that pants to protect you in areas that often take hits on the field. Those areas are the thighs, knees, hips, and tailbone. Lightweight yet protective leg and hip pads are important to being able to take hits and stay quick on your feet. That's why most of these pads are made of EVA foams that protect from high impact collisions. Choosing integrated is a great way to take care of all the pads you need for your legs and pants in one purchase.
Sports Unlimited stocks a variety of these football pants because they are exceedingly popular among youth players and adults alike. They are so easy, all you have to do is put them on, lace up the fly, secure the belt (most integrated pants come with a ring belt built in!) and get on the field. Their ease of use is one of the reasons why players love them so much. Also, you never have to worry about losing the stray knee pad because its built into the pants. One piece instead of eight takes a lot of the stress out of gearing up and gather your equipment for the game. Go with a spandex, nylon, polyester, or a blend of those materials based on your preference and price range!
