Whether you’re practicing pickle drills in an indoor training facility or playing a competitive game out in the dirt, the right softball pants can make a big difference in your comfort and performance. This is why 3N2 designed NuFIT Softball pants, the first ever patented women’s fastpitch pant. These innovative pants are manufactured with high-quality, flexible materials for superior performance at all levels of play.
Traditional Pants Need an Upgrade
Until now, women’s fastpitch softball pants have been designed through reverse engineering: Take a man’s pant. Make it smaller. Make it pink. But we all know that’s not how to make a softball pant that fits women’s bodies or makes them look and feel their best. Traditionally, women’s softball pants were made entirely of polyester, with no stretch, no support, and no movement in the places it’s needed.
Introducing the 3N2 NuFIT KNICKER
3N2 recognized the problems with traditional women’s softball pants. Our answer is the 3N2 NuFIT KNICKER – an innovative, fit-meets-function fastpitch softball pant designed with the female form in mind. It’s so unique in its design, utility, and perfect fit that we’ve patented it.
The NuFIT KNICKER is the first fastpitch softball pant to address the realities of athletic function and the female form. We’ve seen the problems with traditional pants and we’ve solved them with our innovative NuFIT KNICKER.
Slide Zones: Other pants assume that softball players slide on their knees, while fastpitch athletes are coached to slide on the sides of their upper leg and inner knee. The NuFIT KNICKER provides extra coverage in precisely these areas and are reinforced with super durable lightweight poly knit for protection. No other pant on the market provides durability in the high abrasion areas that fastpitch softball athletes put to the test, game in and game out.
Perfect Fit: Traditional pants aren’t meant for the female body. They’re basically modified men’s pants with a one-shape-fits-all mentality. But women’s bodies come in all shapes and sizes and the typical softball pant just doesn’t cut it. The NuFIT KNICKER features 4-way stretch poly-spandex in the hips, thighs, and calves for a curve-hugging, easy-moving perfect fit.
Comfort: When pants don’t fit properly, they aren’t comfortable. Inspired by women’s lifestyle apparel, 3N2’s NuFIT KNICKER sports a low-rise fit in front for comfort and high rise in back for coverage, eliminating the need to fidget and constantly pull your pants up. The poly-spandex cuff won’t rub or cut, so you can play comfortably all day long. Bye-bye rolled waistbands. So long, exposed backside.
Style: Let’s face it…women’s softball pants just aren’t flattering. Part of your confidence on the field is in knowing you look great out there. 3N2 recognized the baggy, bulky, ill-fitting pants being worn and solved those problems with a flattering design that creates a sleek, slimming effect. The NuFIT KNICKER is built to look fantastic on every body type and size, so you can take the field knowing you’re looking sharp.
NuFIT softball pants are constructed from a smart mix of polyester and spandex. These materials help create a 4-way stretch fiber that’s able to handle all sorts of difficult situations when it’s needed most. The 4-way fiber is also very breathable, making it great for hot days. When it’s cold, the pants are perfect for use under as many layers as a player needs. More simply, these pants are comfortable in all types of gameday situations and weather conditions.
Special Features of NuFIT Pants
- Higher Back Rise – for coverage
- Poly Spandex – for a snug but comfortable fit
- 2 Back Pockets – for the things you want to keep on you
- Slide Zones – reinforced with double poly warp knit
- ¾ Inseam – inseam length ends below the knee
All Body Types and Sizes
No two softball players have the exact same body type. Despite this, many softball pants only come in a few sizes and are only designed for a small range of body types. The NuFIT is designed to be comfortable for a wide range of sizes. They come in everything from XS(23-25″) to 3XL(38-41″), and the inseam ranges from 20″ to 22.5”.
NuFIT softball pants don’t discriminate based on size. Skinny or full figured, every player deserves to have really comfortable pants that allow them to play their best. In fact, many players comment that NuFITs fit and feel more like leggings than traditional softball pants. That’s why many consider them to be the best girls softball pants on the market.
Adaptability on the Field
Catcher is perhaps the most difficult position to find apparel for due to the awkward positioning, held poses, constant movement and time in the dirt. The fit-meets-function design of NuFIT softball pants snugly hugs the curves of fastpitch players while allowing for completely free and easy movement, making time behind the plate a whole lot easier.
Durable Season After Season
The apparel designers at 3N2 know softball inside and out, and they apply that knowledge to creating pants that truly stand up to what female players need during both practice and game play. The belt loops, which can be weak in other types of pants, are strong and durable so that they can stand test of time through the toughest seasons.
What makes NuFIT pants so durable? They incorporate a rugged double-ply poly material in the areas that encounter the toughest conditions, including the knees and outside of the leg. This design protects the player from high abrasion activities like sliding or diving.
From Club to Casual
Most pants can last a single season in a normal youth softball league, but how do they hold up in highly competitive play?
Both competitive and casual softball players seem to love the fit and performance of NuFIT pants.
The NuFIT’s ability to provide a performance boost to players at all levels of play is just one of the reasons why these are one the most top rated girls softball pants. For example, the flexibility of NuFITs allows beginning catchers to learn positioning without worry and gives elite outfielders the confidence and freedom needed to go for the toughest line drives.
Performance with Style
Looking stylish on the field isn’t everything in softball, but it never hurts. Many players are initially attracted to NuFIT because they simply look great. Women and girls of all ages and shapes love the way they look and love them even more when they realize they don’t have to sacrifice comfort or performance to benefit from NuFIT’s style.
NuFIT pants are available in a variety of colors both with and without belt loops. Positive reviews show that coaches and team managers around the country are ordering them for use with team uniforms, and individual players are not only buying them for gameday wear, but also just for practices.
Fastpitch Softball Pants with Great Reviews
With all of these features and functions, it’s no wonder that the 3N2 NuFIT KNICKER gets excellent reviews from players, coaches, and parents alike.
