Pads are the same as the BB moderns arent they? Gloves look really interesting!

Nice to see something a little different but a gimmick IMO.  The net result is like a normal glove but two layers of material over the finger tips and heel of the hand... how is that an improvement? Fingertips especially is where you would want a bit more "feel" not a second layer. As someone who likes really snug gloves the fit of the "outer" glove is not looking great too. Similar with the pads, there is no real reason to have two separate parts.*

I tried a prototype of these about 18 mo the ago when I met with Paul

The inners are available in a range of sizes and are based on the principle of a golf glove for that perfect fit the players in the video are eluding to.

The other advantage is something Paul said perhaps a manufacturer shouldnt be looking to achieve but hes not in the business to withhold innovations from customers. How many times have you had to buy a new pair of gloves because the backhand was knackered? Id say most people will answer that with none
Its usually the condition of the palms that necessitates a change. These gloves with interchangeable (and cheap) inners wil reduce the number of times youll have to buy a whole new set. Palms shagged? Just buy a new inner.

I saw less of the pad as it was still more of an idea.

Paul is one of very few people Ive come across in the industry actively looking to produce innovations in pads and gloves, rather than just recycling/rebranding the existing designs of the major Indian manufacturers. I think he should be commended.

You could cut the fingers off the inners if you want more feel

... and end up with... a normal cricket glove

I like the desire to do something new but it doesn't add up for me. That is just my opinion without seeing them.

My cynicism is also swayed but the interviewed players struggling to be positive... and struggle to read off a script about how they like them :)

I agree with @DorsetDan re the gloves , in that they aren't for me . I dont wear inners because i need less bulk , more feel (even though i go through 5 or 6 pairs of gloves a year and would get more longevity from wearing inners). However if you don't have these needs or wears inners anyway then these gloves might be a goer .
Re the pads , i think they look great . A side benifit of the design is the inner knee/shin bolster could be retrofitted to certain pads ......if i hadnt bought custom stretton fox shin/knee bolsters for my morrants I'd definitely look at buying these to wear with them .
I guess , since they are a new product , sight unseen , it would require trying them in the flesh to know if they are suited to you or not .....and if noone stocks them then perhaps online purchasing aprehension may be a bit of an obstacle in converting people to using them .

IMO too many moving parts, not an innovation.

It amuses me how easily people uses the word innovation. Innovation would have been if a new material (may be something like D3O foam)being used.

Too many moving parts to protect against an object in a very thigh motion is never a good thing.
And double wrapping legs could affect blood circulation, but that's just my point of view.

Having seen, handled or sold virtually every pad and glove from every manufacturer (realistically there aren't that many manufacturers) I would say i'm pretty well placed to make a call on what is innovative.

I'm also still the only person in the topic who's actually seen/worn the items in question as far as i can tell.

As always with this forum, perhaps judgement should be reserved until you've actually handled the product yourself?

I hate inners, but i'd happily wear these D&P gloves.

Those who don't know who I am might just dismiss me as a D&P fan boy. I'm just giving credit where credit is due. Given my long standing association and relationship with B&S, this is an extremely difficult thing to admit.

Looks like innovation to me. I dont like wearing inners either but Id be keen to give them a try. Pads look good too.

I saw a more detailed vid on their website. The outer (shield) gloves come in 3 sizes . The inners come in 3 sizes and 3 thicknesses. Hard to know which size for both id need , although i guess id opt for the thinest ones . Again , online purchasing is an obstacle , as I'm tempted by these but not knowing sizing without being able to try them is very offputting . Also, no prices on the website as of yet .
