#1 : Gray Nicolls Legend Cricket Batting Gloves

Price $94.99

Quality : 3

Comfort : 1

Protection : 2

Score of 6/9

These gloves look so cool, but boy, are they uncomfortable taking them out the packaging..The problem is they are probably made flat on the table, rather than moulded on a persons hands or model or something. you may have to leave these rubber banded / folded under your mattress over night to get some sort of shape into the gloves. My hands got tired in about 5 seconds holding onto a bat and forcing some shape into them. Really disappointing from Gray Nicolls.

#2 : Gray Nicolls Oblivion test cricket batting gloves

Price $69.99

Quality : 3

Comfort : 2

Protection : 2

Score of 7/9

I prefer these gloves over the Legends. Even though they have a sausage finger i would say these are far more comfortable and flexible than the super stiff legends. ” test ” level protection is not quite there but adequate for any club level cricket.

#3 : Gray Nicolls Oblivion 5 star Cricket Batting Gloves

Price $64.99

Quality : 2

Comfort : 3

Protection : 2

Score of 7/9

Now this is more like it. If you want comfort and flexibility then its the oblivion 5 star gloves you want. Very soft leather, nice and flexible. The legend guys can learn a thing or two from these gloves.. And these gloves provide enough protection for your average club cricketer. Save your money and get these guys…

#4 : Gray Nicolls Oblivion 4 star Cricket Batting Gloves

Price $34.99

Quality : 1

Comfort : 1

Protection : 1

Score of 3/9

These i would say are good to be thrown into the bottom of a school boys cricket kit bag, never to be seen again.

 

#5 : Gray Nicolls Maverick Elite Cricket Batting Gloves

Price $84.99

Quality : 3

Comfort : 3

Protection : 2.5

Score of 8.5 / 9

These are very nice gloves. The color is bold but thats ok…The comfort is supreme and softness is top notch. Very comfortable gloves, great protection level and very good materials used. Anyone would be happy wearing these..

#6 : Gray Nicolls Maverick 4 star Cricket Batting Gloves

Price $44.99

Quality : 1

Comfort : 1

Protection : 2

Score of 4 / 9

Another one that is destined for the bottom of the team kit bag. Very low protection, low flexibility, low protection. I would think at least for cheap gloves that they would be able to make a pair of comfortable gloves, but apparently not…My thought is that the sausage finger design would be more moulded to the shape of your hands around the handle rather than dead straight, that would make these gloves much better than they actually are.
