Do you not struggle with the lack of ventilation??

Decent reading on the scrotometer maybe, but given the compression shorts holding it all in place, I am not sure any ventilation makes a difference. Plus you wouldn't want anything caught/trapped in a gap...

Arm stubbies might become the thing to have this year, followed by Strettons if they ever arrive.

Its a balancing act isnt it. On balance I think I prefer ventilation and drainage to the unlikely event of testicle egress.

For the first time in about 20 years a new box for me, carbon shock Dr.

My favourite new bit of kit is the Qdos duffle I bought its just a superb bag for the money
Picked one of these bags up myself. My only gripe is if the side pockets were a touch bigger you could put a pad on each side and have the main section free for other kit

Or for far less than 20 quid, buy a 6" sweatband and stick your arm guard in it?! No different to the Aero or any other arm guard really. The Ayrtek ones are much slimmer obviously.

It would be too tight, which is why Ayrtek's use of D30 is the only real solution for a sweatband protector. 

The other one I pictured and Buzz linked, is a New Zealand company that came to market in Nov '19, a few guy's on the telly have been using them.

I made one a while ago and it was ok tbh. Cut up an old arm guard and placed it between the layers of a 6 inch sweatband, wasn't too tight and felt fine. That said the Ayrtek one (which I have too), is obviously far less bulky.
