I'd say you'd be a medium for a normal fit, large if you one of the sort of blokes that likes a bit of an oversized tight pad.

I'm 6ft and was 16.5 stone (ie - fat!) and I find the medium P2's fine. The only problem with them was if you had a bit of a gut they tended to ride down.

I would've found a larger size too big and cumbersome.

Hey there.

The best way to size yourself for P2 strippers is loosley based on hieght but the most accurate way is to use the sizing guide on our website or on the back of the stripper box.

The measurement you want is from the top of your pelvic (hip) bone to the middle of your knee.

I've posted the link here http://www.aerocricket.com/equipment/sizing-guide.html

Cheers

Yep, I found the guide on the Aero website very helpful. Much appreciated and a lot of the reason I went with P2's in the end

I have a gut mate and mine didnt really ride down from what i remember, all i had trouble with was it sitting on the top of my box? Maybe i was wearing them too low but anywhere else would have been uncomfortable

So the TON mens inner and outer thighpad set turned up last night.

Forgot to take any pictures, so will do a review after nets tonight.

Initial thought are the fit is lovely, I feel protected, they feel better than any other kit I have tried, kook combi, p1's2's3's.

From looking around they. Look the same as the Hunts County Xero Combo Thigh Protector, kookuburra 500 Pro Guard and others that have come out.

I'll give them a bash at nets.

I have more than a gut! 6ft and more than 16st and the fitness to prove it, and I wear medium p2s with no trouble of them falling down they fit great and are comfortable

Are you talking about this?

http://www.itsjustcricket.co.uk/personal-protection-c1/thigh-pads-c9/ton-classic-dual-thigh-pad-p1716

I bought this a few weeks ago, very impressed.  Every bit as comfy as my previous P2 strippers at a fraction of the price, seem decently made too.  I'm not quite sure how the protection compares with the P2s, not really been tested out.  I was very disappointed with the quality of my last P2s, the material fell apart after not much more than 1 season.  Before that I made the mistake of buying a Gray Nicolls Omega XRD 360 dual thigh guard on eBay, the protection was outstanding but it was unbelievably bulky and uncomfortable, used it in 1 net and sold it on...

Anyone know where to get one of these sets, aside from IJC?

Just bought a pair myself. Fit OK (I'm a big fella) and very light. Will give them a spin in the nets this weekend. At 15 quid they look a bargain.

The UK Indian supplier like TCS/ DKP have them too but you'll struggle to find them cheaper and be shipped quicker than IJC
