I have a gray nicolls test thigh pad and inner thigh pad but it is getting a bit small. I bought them about 3 years ago and don't offer much protection either. What thigh pad and inner thigh pad do you guys recommend for under $100?

Agree with Buzz. I take it were taking $AUD? If so, $75 for a set of P2's at Kingsgrove, or $95 for the P1's if you're feeling a bit fancy. Though I like them, lots of forum members find them a little bulky.

Yeah I was thinking something along the lines of that. I don't need it yet, but good to know prior to buying one

To echo one of the earlier posts, what is the pick of the cheaper options?

I am only average club level so don't necessarily need crazy protection or coverage and would err towards a less bulky, comfortable, secure fitting option.

Was thing of the SG Ultimate combo or SS Aerolite combo perhaps... anything else to try?

Anybody tried the RS ones that are for sale on thecricketshed? If so, how do they compare to Aero P2's? I want something that is smaller, lighter and less bulky than the p2's.

Having tried a few on I've plumped for the P2s since they were by far the most comfortable. Not the best in terms of impact protection (Newbery 2016 combo was the pick of the ones I tried) and not super cheap but felt best and will do for my needs

Has anyone used the Blank Bats thigh pad set at all - any views on them?

Yes, tried them on briefly and returned them as I found them massive and intrusive even in a Youth size for my 5'9'' frame. Protection (tested scientifically by smacking myself with a mallet) was much better than the P2's but I couldn't get on with the shape or size of them. Worst you can do is give them a go as we are all different and may feel great. No idea if they slip as I didn't get that far with them :)

IJC have just posted a video of the Ton Classic dual thigh pad set, they are dirt cheap at 14.99 a set.

The protection looks very thin and light but going from @Buzz comments they would probably be fine for league and club cricket. Being less than 15 quid they're worth a punt I think.

Another addition to this thread. The Gray Nicolls 2017 Test Thigh

This is a standalone outer thigh guard, that retails for around 17.95
I've had a look online and the inner thigh pad would be an additional 17.50, making the cost of a "set" 35.45
Considering you can get a Gray Nicolls all in one thigh guard set for 24 these probably wouldn't be the best value for money.

The guard itself is a simple design, with 2 straps and 2 fixed points to attach them to.
The fit is comforatable and gives a good coverage, but as with all off the shelf thigh pads you'll have a little gap the ball will almost certainly manage to find.

This guard is incredibly light and thin, with a towelled back. This is great for comfort, but the protection is reduced as a result. The protection level will be fine for club cricket, but I definitely felt it more when I wacked myself with the mallet than I did wearing Aero P2s.

Overall a good product that's very light and thin, so should fit nicely under even the most skin tight of whites! It will offer sufficient protection for a club player. Value for money wise you can get better "bang for your buck" elsewhere, but they're not the most expensive either.

Lads, after a bit of advice regarding sizing on the Aero P2's.

i only started playing last year, and have been using a pair of kookaburra batting shorts, but the front leg pad doesn't seem very good, as it doesn't really cover the entire area it should. As a result, i'm currently sporting a lovely bruise about 4 inches above my knee.

I'm looking at getting a pair of P2's and was wondering what the sizing is like. From what i understand it goes on height rather than waist. I'm 5'8 and a mate who's a similar size wears a medium, though i'm a a bit wider in the waist than he is!

What have people on here found with the sizing?
