New 2012 GM cricket batting gloves and the new Pro cricket helmet.
2012 GM original limited edition cricket batting gloves
I really liked the new 2012 GM original limited edition batting gloves. I found the Pittards leather to be very soft and comfortable yet it still allowed for supremem control of the cricket bat. Over all they seemed a bit loose on me and i would probably use a set of batting inners if i were to use these gloves in a match.
The construction and design were also very good with the extra protection on the two bowling fingers. There is plenty of top quality leather on these gloves and that adds to the light weight design of the gloves. lots of vents spread around the gloves so we, here in texas dont over heat during the very hot summers and also lots of extra protection so your hands and fingers dont get jammed up against the bat handle if the ball bounces a little higher than expected.
Overall a very good set of cricket batting gloves great for any level even international test level.
GM 808 2012 cricket batting gloves
These are the new 2012 GM 808 cricket batting gloves and are basically a cheaper version of the GM original limited edition gloves. The over quality is still very high and these are a high club or county level glove. Still very light and comfortable its just the type of materials used that make these gloves cheaper. Some examples are instead of these gloves being 0.440g like the Original LE’s these gloves are a little heavier at 0.535 g for the pair.
Also instead of the Pittard leather these 808 batting gloves are calf leather.
Overall though i would say that these gloves are still very good and if you cant afford the expensive originals i would just get these 808’s as they are still adequate for any normal persons cricket.
