Hey there.

The best way to size yourself for P2 strippers is loosley based on hieght but the most accurate way is to use the sizing guide on our website or on the back of the stripper box.

The measurement you want is from the top of your pelvic (hip) bone to the middle of your knee.

I've posted the link here http://www.aerocricket.com/equipment/sizing-guide.html

Cheers

I'm 6ft and was 16.5 stone (ie - fat!) and I find the medium P2's fine. The only problem with them was if you had a bit of a gut they tended to ride down.

I would've found a larger size too big and cumbersome.

I have a gut mate and mine didnt really ride down from what i remember, all i had trouble with was it sitting on the top of my box? Maybe i was wearing them too low but anywhere else would have been uncomfortable

So the TON mens inner and outer thighpad set turned up last night.

Forgot to take any pictures, so will do a review after nets tonight.

Initial thought are the fit is lovely, I feel protected, they feel better than any other kit I have tried, kook combi, p1's2's3's.

From looking around they. Look the same as the Hunts County Xero Combo Thigh Protector, kookuburra 500 Pro Guard and others that have come out.

I'll give them a bash at nets.

I have more than a gut! 6ft and more than 16st and the fitness to prove it, and I wear medium p2s with no trouble of them falling down they fit great and are comfortable

Are you talking about this?

http://www.itsjustcricket.co.uk/personal-protection-c1/thigh-pads-c9/ton-classic-dual-thigh-pad-p1716

I bought this a few weeks ago, very impressed.  Every bit as comfy as my previous P2 strippers at a fraction of the price, seem decently made too.  I'm not quite sure how the protection compares with the P2s, not really been tested out.  I was very disappointed with the quality of my last P2s, the material fell apart after not much more than 1 season.  Before that I made the mistake of buying a Gray Nicolls Omega XRD 360 dual thigh guard on eBay, the protection was outstanding but it was unbelievably bulky and uncomfortable, used it in 1 net and sold it on...

Anyone know where to get one of these sets, aside from IJC?

Just bought a pair myself. Fit OK (I'm a big fella) and very light. Will give them a spin in the nets this weekend. At 15 quid they look a bargain.

Thanks mate, certainly wasn't expecting you to go to that trouble! Not too fussed if they are cheaper, I am hoping to visit Talent Cricket soon anyway so will try them out there.

easiest thing is to type the kit into google and go to, google shop, searches all the websites! I also have most sites saved as favourites and search them frequently.....lol

So I nabbed a pair if these thigh pads.
A few thoughts, firstly for 11 they are good value.
But the are very big.
They also need a load of shaping (might need to get the hair drier our)
They seem well made and look good.
Not sure they will nudge out my sg pads from my bag though.





P.s. I have missed this thread...! 😂😂

Was considering these too as my P2's are wearing badly. Ideally I'd like to see what Stretton Fox's new ones will be like, but might need a stop gap.

Do you mean big as in bulky/thick or just long/wide?

Hi, these are pretty thin but quite tall, so cover a lot of your hip and leg, more than the average pad.
They will need some shaping and fitting to be comfortable.
