I still have the same box and same helmet as I've had since the 90s. If they still do the job, why waste money replacing them?

Pads and boots should last a decade before wearing out, gloves tend to wear our after 4-5 years, and bats are a lottery - but I'd hope to get 2-3 years out of a half-decent bat.

My helmet has just done its 3rd season, had that since late 2016 season. I have bought a couple of the Albion lids, one green for Frogs and a couple blue as spares as they were bargains. Otherwise my Nike spikes (2016), Asics spikes (end of season sales 2016) and my box (2016) are my longest surviving kit. As I'm sure has been noticed when I decide to change kit I do the lot and try to match to club colours where possible, only exception is my B3s which I get with white stickers normally.

Never get more than a season out of a set of gloves approx 12 games a season and are shot come Sep every year, i use separate net gloves as well, may get through a season netting plus winter nets from my net gloves as dont net for that long during the season normally

what do you mean by "shot"?

I find it hard to believe that your gloves could possibly be so radically sub-standard compared to the 40 ones I bought from GM back in 2011 that eventually wore through in the thumb last season after more than 4000 runs.

(I still have them, I'm planning on taking them on tour with me to use for 3 final innings and then leaving them in Portugal).

I dont get a summer and winter out of a set of pads and most certainly if I only used one set of gloves theyd be destroyed. However, I do play a lot of games and over the winter, face 3-400 balls most days so thats a lot more than most

I generally need a new set of pads and 3-4 sets of gloves at the start of summer and a few OLS cheap ones for winter nets

My bag. Slazenger tour pro. Awesome and only 20. Had it 3 seasons and it shows no wear, is a great size and thankfully has a zipper valuables pocket.
