Title: What combination of thigh pad do you wear?
Post by: 19reading87 on January 11, 2019, 09:24:22 AM
Interested to see what combination of thigh pads people wear... if at all? Also, explain here as to why you wear what you do.

Yeah, P2s as well. Had a season where i tried the Kook pro players set as they were thinner, but nowhere near as comfortable as the P2s. Went back to those after a season and don't think I'll ever change them

P2s and they are fine as above. Used to have P1s but don't feel I made the wrong choice in replacing them when time was due with P2s.

I have the GM OLE thigh pad set all in one which is fine and perfect protection. However I feel the set up of individual Adidas thigh guard and inner guard are more comfy

I find all in ones too bulky. For the standard I now play at, one pad is plenty. I have had difficulty finding a single pad that is a good size (far more choice in 'All in one' pads, hence me trying aero P2s, large mens, which now languish in the bottom of my bag).

Stratton’s and have just got a second new set as the initial ones are now way to big for me. Shrinking a few Stone kinda helps

I have worn P2's for years and they simply do the job, protect and are comfy and don't break the bank.

I have always wondered what Strettons are like though.

I use the P2s but they aren't a great fit on me (the thigh pads that are available for my waist size don't cover a gap between my leg guards and the bottom of the outer thigh pad) and bowlers have an unnerving ability to find that area.  I am interested in Strettons but have heard that they are close to realising a new product.  Does anyone have any info on timescales?

Used to wear Aero P1s with Aero P1 leg guards but these days no thigh guard.

I’ll be dusting off my custom Stretton a for another seasons use once indoor nets start again on the 9th Feb.

Need to break in new pads too after managing to spike my others last season when attempting a quick single🤦‍♂️

Use a Remfry outer. I have the inner as well but I've gone back to just an outer for this season as I feel like I move better without it. Copped one on the inside thigh which bruised up nicely though haha.
