Wk / Fielding pads are:
 
Height: 530mm
Width: 330mm

All the new range is mouldable

Hi Rob,

Just seen your post on Instagram of the WK pads and they look great but with them being 51.5cm high, they are far far too big. They come up to the middle of my thigh.

To be honest I am a bit perplexed about the size of them, when pads height - top of instep to middle of knee is usually between 40-44cm.

Am I missing something??

Is that to the top of the actual pad or the top of the knee socket?

My Newbury Tour pads I wear under my trousers the top of the pads is 43cm

I am sure they are that length for a reason, I am just really gutted they are too big for me.

Would you suggest going with Strettons size recommendation or going down one @Six Sixes Cricket

Without measuring a thigh guard for comparison those dimensions sound rather large.

I put my P2's on and they measured around the same as the small. The length was including the hip protection part on the Aero's though

Tried them today. Very impressed once I had worked out that the instructions were on the side of the box 😂😂. The size 3 is very large but they are the most comfortable and robust thigh pads I have found. I didn't notice I was wearing them once they were on and the velcro straps are the strongest I have seen. No more hoiking up of scratchy thigh pads during an innings.
