I really like the colour combination.
Reminds me of the Adidas Libro colour scheme apart from the fact I actually like these SG softs!

There's a real sharpness and cleaness about these that works really well.
I reckon they will look even better in the flesh too!

Ok, the thigh pads I have had for a while and I really like, cheap, but adjustable and decent protection. Not like foxy ones but good enough.
If you can see it there is a duffle bag there, I have also reviewed that before.

Now I have always been a huge fan of sehwag and dravid and I always look to see the new season SG kit, just in case... Plus if a firm makes for GM and kookaburra they can't be all bad!

So the pads, about an inch shorter than my GM pads but lighter. I am disappointed they don't have a leather instep but they look great and are comfortable on. The arch over the foot is a little tighter than the gm's too so when you have them on they aren't that much lower.
Plus let's face it the curved front of the foam canes look awesome and the colours are great.

Now the gloves. Just about not too garish. Slightly smaller than my gm gloves but actually very comfortable when holding a bat, which is a relief.
They have the same pittards palms as the gm le gloves.

Just great kit. I am really pleased.

Should mention I picked them up of eBay in an auction so they were a bargain too!! :o

That is a beautiful kit. I was going to cancel my order of NB duffle bag after seeing your kit ;)

Here are a few more pics of the gloves and a comparison with my 2015 GM LE gloves (much less bulky - if only the fingers in the SG gloves were just half a cm longer!)









This picture is a bit misleading the GM gloves are closer than the SG ones

A few more of the pads - fully 130 grammes lighter than the GM LE pads (and 25%+ lighter than the new LE pads)













here is a link to dwayne bravo wearing them

Few years ago, I got SG Test gear (when it was top of the line) and they were fabulous!

The gloves fit is similar to GM (snug) whereas the instep is disappointing.

The best instep that I would say is of BAS Players pads.
