Is that not identical to the Adidas one from the previous years? Just with NB livery...?

I'd love to know how that conversation went in pricing the new gear. How they justify charging almost 50 more than the other top end bags because its got the England three lions on is beyond me...

They were cheaper than that when they were Adidas and pro issue only.

the RRP on them with adidas was 500 so say though, exactly the same company making them but given demand they have rolled them out to the public.

Sturdy but a nightmare to get bats into and out of when the rest of ur kit in in them and take up 70% of an Audi A4 Avants boot!

To give you guys some food for thought.... recently i wanted to get an adidas version ecb coffin for 100 pounds but steep international shipping put me off . Prodirectcricket.com has pretty cheap shipping to oz , and then there's also the vat  free part too . Basically , it would end up costing me about $260ish... $10 more than buying an aero standup wheelie ( which is my  current bag , i had resigned myself to buying a second/new one as a replacement ). With the new colour way being soooo nice i.m.o I can't  help myself and plan on getting one next payday.  So , i guess the  view of how reasonable the price is depends on the situation /context / other options etc . Also , seems like it may be more attractive to o.s buyers , like myself , in oz etc .

When England are beating the Aussies they all claim to be English don't they?

Me....so at least one. I reckon pommy national kit usually looks better than oz. Plus we cant even get our replica versions of coffins etc . Also , its kinda cool to have replica kit - novelty value. And the poms in my side will get jealous,  hopefully . All good enough reasons .

Oh  :o...... if it's 'making the poms in my side jealous' bit then it's just me being honest and a bit tongue in cheek. Had our presentation night last night and mentioned me getting this kit to a pom - he was all 'yeah , i want that bag too , it's pretty cool' . It's a talking point / common interest thing more than anything .
But , if it's me referring to poms as poms..... well, it's said with love from a self confessed anglophile. ( But I'll deny i ever said it during the ashes  :D ).
