Puma Gloves sizing
« on: January 28, 2014, 09:22:03 PM »

As I'm a kit hoarding fashionista and therefore want some gloves to match my new bat I have a quick question on sizing: I wear GN men's/Kook small mens. Is this comparable to a puma mens or youths? Are 2013 and 2014 sizes the same? I know there are occasionally variations....

I bought a pair of puma calibre 5000 gloves when they did the blue and lime green ones and they were huge! Definitely won't be buying standard mens in the future if their size are the same. I'd say a youths would be a Gray Nicolls mens fit

Much to the displeasure of the lady, I spent a long time trying out small mens size gloves at Barrington Sports last year. What I found with the Puma gloves was that the youth sizes were the same size as small mens in the other brands. I found them to be better fitting than the others. Hope this helps

I'll second that. I've some Puma Platinum 5000 Youth-size gloves, and they fit like...well, a glove. Perfect 'Small Mens' fit.

Don't know if the same is true for the pads. Also use GN small mens but would be interested in matching up brands if the size was right.

Anyone know about pad size?

I went to Barrington sports today to test this theory and was a bit disappointed with the quality of the Puma pads for this season. they were very rigid and didnt seem to offer much protection around the sides, and yes it was a RH and not an ambi.

Size wise though a youth size would do but I think Gray Nics have great pads in terms of quality and sizing.
