For a thigh pad, quite a lot. Especially as you have to import them from Aus, pay import duty etc. That said, Luke tries to minimise the additional costs as much as possible.  In terms of performance and comfort though, the Remfry pads are hard to beat. Dont get me wrong, the P1 isnt bad at all, although I did struggle with the hip guard, and also found that they slipped down regularly.

think top level protection must be as comfy as possible, thats what this one must be, looking at its price tag. enjoy a long time with your Remfry :D
i saw one little post about them, its interesting to know how many forumites will be buying it for coming season, I wouldn't as i don't bat that much, mostly in the nets :D

Most thigh pads do exactly the same thing, so its an unnecessary expense to buy a handmade thigh pad and have it imported from Australia. I must admit, the only reason I did it was because I was intrigued as to what all the fuss was about, and why they are so popular with the pros. Also, I guess its good to support a family business that has grown through word of mouth and doesnt even offer a penny in sponsorship deals.

On a load of the new thigh pads there is some form of hip protector, the GN, Moonwkr, Masuri etc what is the general view?
The p1s have had them in various guises for years.
I have found they just get in the way...!

I think the hip protectors are a complete waste of time. Ive never been hit on the hip (cue getting hit on the hip at nets this coming Sunday), and they make the overall package a bit too bulky. Theres only so much you can stuff down your trousers!

As Jos Buttler would say they struggle to get past my Fxxxing gut and make it all uncomfortable and push the thigh pad down my leg so no good for me.

I have found this too - its so hard to just find a basic non bulky thigh guard

I find the hip protection bulky but an essential part of the thigh pad.  Of all the places on the lower body to get hit, getting struck on the corner of hip bone is by far the most painful.  When I first started playing, thigh pads were essentially a foam rectangle held in place with two pieces of Velcro.  The ball that climbs and jags back in was horrible without proper protection in that area

Personally used separate thigh and inner thigh guard combo for the last 4 seasons, I have Aero, GM and GM all in one same style thigh guards and all are a lot more bulky than the separate Adidas thigh pads I use

Yes they look good. Tried to get some of these from Onlinestockist last year but no success as yet.

But the problem I have with all thigh pads is that they don't go down low enough on tall players. They don't protect the bit just above the knees, especially on the back leg. I sometimes used to get hit there and it's painful with bad bruising. I bet the same applies to the Indian made ones.
