Gunn & Moore maxi protective shorts


The Gunn & Moore maxi protective shorts are a pretty good pair of shorts. i have used them for about 2 seasons before i switched out to the more expensive Aero stripper moulded thigh guard. The GM shorts are made of cotton and are body hugging. They have all the necessary padding in them and offer a thigh pad as well as an inner thigh guard. The one pouch they don’t have is the abdomen protector. therefore you need to either wear a jock strap, underpants or other shorts with an inner liner. So that brings me to my problem with these pads. You will probably get pretty hot and sweaty if you war these. With basically 3 layers of clothing over you family jewels.

So basically i would say that these shorts are pretty good if you are on a budget. If you can afford the more expensive thigh pads then go for them instead. however if you are on a bit of a budget then these shorts will serve you well as i used them for 2 or 3 seasons and they were just fine.

i hope you have found this cricket gear review useful and easier to make a purchase decision.

kookaburra ice thigh guard


The kookaburra ice thigh guard is part of kookaburra new ice range of cricket gear. Easily noticed by the blue and silver color code given to the kookaburra ice range. The ice range comes in underneath the kahuna range from kookaburra however many of the products are just as good as the kahuna range. i was quite impressed with this kookaburra ice thigh guard as it is probably on par with the kookaburra kahuna thigh guard. I found the ice thigh pad to be well constructed, comfortable and good value for money.

Here is a short video where i give you a bit of a closer look at the Kookaburra Ice thigh pad.

brian lara gray nicolls scoop autographed cricket bat


The brian lara gray nicolls scoop autographed cricket bat is certainly something i wish i had when i was a young boy. I loved to watch brian lara play. As i am as left handed batsman as he is, i was always glued to the TV whenever the west indies were on TV. He was my childhood hero when i was a teenager. I remember going to many cricket matches in south africa when the boys from the Caribbean came to town. I had the wonderful pleasure of getting a number of these cricket bats signed when i met Brian at the recent 20/20 world cup.
Im sure this will be a wonderful cricket bat after you put some oil on it and knock it in however i would suggest this is more for a collector or someone who understands what a great contribution to cricket brian lara has given us. If you would like some more information or pictures feel free to give me a call.

adidas twenty 2 yard cricket shoes


The adidas twenty 2 yard cricket shoes are some of the more expensive shoes on the market in the US at the  moment. We only have a few pairs left at www.cricketstoreonline.com so if you are interested please contact us soon. Here is a short video review of the cricket shoes / spikes.

So one thing i noted about these cricket shoes when i was handling them, is that they are really light. The clima cool system in the tongue is all pretty cool as it helps the top of your foot keep cool with some oversized air holes. The sides of the adidas twenty 2 yard cricket shoes have ample mesh areas to allow air flow as well. These particular cricket shoes are batting spikes, meaning that there are only spikes in the front portion of the shoe, as when you are batting and running you are mainly standing on your toes or mid-foot region. The box also comes with a set of replacement spikes incase they fall out .

Thank you for reading this blog, if you are interested in these shoes, please call me on 1.888.470.4746 or go to www.cricketstoreonline.com.

Puma Ballistic Flex Tec 6000 Batting Pads


Puma Ballistic Flex Tec 6000 Batting Pads.

So what can we say about these puma ballistic pads.  They are easily some of the lightest cricket pads we have ever tested.  The craftsmanship is just brilliant and very well put together.

I would certainly recommend these Puma ballistic cricket batting pads to anyone who is serious about their cricket and wants to perform at the highest level. You will feel as if you don’t even have pads on they are so light. The puma ballistic’s are not the most comfortable pad available but they certainly are light. So save up a bit of cash, as they aren’t cheap, running anywhere from $150 – $180 USD. They are well worth the price though.

The Pads
The pads of choice for master-blasters Brendon McCullum and Adam Gilchrist, these leg guards are intended to offer wholesale freedom of movement in order to allow the more free-spirited batsman to tee off with minimal restriction. Notable features on these cut down pads include an internal Fibre Tech shield and a moulded kneecap.

We Say
The lightest pads we’ve ever tested, these babies allow you to skip down the track with abandon. Suffered slightly in terms of comfort due to chaffing a previously acquired injury on one of our play-testers, and as eye-catching as they are you’ll probably have a few shots to avoid the odd remark from jealous opponents, but if you favour quick feet, don’t be shy on shelling out on these babies.
