Think I'd have gone for the Strettons but want aware of them at the time, so got the P2s. Work ok for me and don't find them too bulky at all. That said, would certainly look at some which were a lot thinner.

I currently use a Kookaburra set. Theyre spot on to be fair.

Tried the Aero P1 & P2 hated them!!! Way too bulky and not comfy!

I have tried the strettons of a mates and loved them. However, very expensive. I would wait for the new cheaper strettons after christmas.

Excalibur, which Kookaburra set do you have?  It's the bulk that gets me, hard to find a set comfortable to run in.

My highly scientific test of letting my wife smack me with a mallet says the softer foam in Aeros does very little and it comes off very easily so you can half the thickness right away. It also goes back in fine if you decide to put it back in.

I've left it on my outer pad just because it doesn't get in the way but removed it from my custom inner pad since the shape I've cut out overlaps with the pad's top hat and I can't feel it is there. Protection has been fine for the hits I've had so far.

I maybe wouldn't recommend it if playing a very high level, the Strettons would be the easy winner for being thin yet protective pads but for the average clubby I don't think you'll have any issues slimming Aero P2's in that way. Could be fun to get some other opinions. Remember, if giving it a test make sure your friend or significant other is capable of hitting the pads first before they wildly start going at it :( :D

I had been using aero p2.
But once i tried kookaburas pro players le thigh pads, i sold my new apair of aeros to get them.
They offer too level protection and mould to your body.
They are not thick or bulky material but rather very thinner padding but protection is top nothch.
Expensive than awro p1.
Lightest pair of thigh pads i have ever tried and very very compfy, you barely notice them on.

I use Slazenger Xlite bought from sports direct 2 years ago for 20. Does its job very well and very very light. Haven't used anything else so cant compare to tell difference.

Got hit many times but pad did its job to protect. Still going strong for coming 3rd season. For cost of 20 cant ask for more. You can find them on ebay now as sports direct doesn't sell anymore.

I think my missus would be capable, I'm just not sure what she would be aiming for...
