What would be the chances of a towelled 'sweat thumb'?

Both sets look quality.

What do people think about kangaroo leather? I reckon they're flexible enough while being tougher. They have a harder life than your average sheep/calf I would have thought.

You might get the odd 'oh poor skippy' but over there they feed them bullbars.

This is a great idea actually, can imagine such a small area would get saturated fairly quickly

Are the sausage gloves similar to the GN Prestige (look very similar on the split) - looking very good!

Sound good I wouldn't buy anything else, I hate sheepskin, those awful black or crisscross pittards.

It's all about cougar pittards.

I think they look too much like the SS 2016 range to me.

I would love to see the gloves follow the pads and be all white with the black B3 on them or whiteouts as previously mentioned.

Pittards v Calf Leather - Pittards offer better grip/performance IMHO but calf leather is very comfortable and have the thicker, quality feel. If I were a retailer, not that B3 or other retailers would do this, but I would always go with leather over pittards as a good batsman will need, at least, 2 pairs! ;)
