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
Cheers

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.

Bas ones are top quality and cheap

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.
