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...! 😂😂

Ive missed this thread too 😀

I bought some Aero P2s in the end and made a custom inner pad from a cut down outer pad and then stitched it all back up to look passable

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.

Got myself one of those Klubb thigh pad set, and like what Buzz has said the main pad is very tall but for 11 pounds delivered I dont think you can complain.

The quality seems really decent for the price and I can see myself using them in the future, theyre not too bulky and appear to provide some good protection.

I have a theory as to why they could be so cheap, maybe they are a batch of pads made in error (i.e. the manufactures got the wrong template or made to wrong size spec)

Good theory, could be right.

Popped in GCCC East Sydney a few days back and noticed the Off-the-shelf Remfreys. Not cheap but very light and thin, tempted to bring some back

yeah they've sold those for a few years now. I have two (bought one of a fellow forumite and another off eBay) and they are much better than the other offerings, but they are rather expensive. I just love how you can do them as tight as you want due to the whole band being able to attach to the velcro. They have a low profile too, so they never get in the way.
