So i know quite a few people have been waiting for this review, so here it is.
SG TEST cricket batting pads
One thing i really like about the SG gear for this year is that it all comes in a very good quality package of some sorts. every bat, every set of gloves, pads etc all has these very cool SG bags, and it will help you look after your gear for seasons to come. That says something about the company and their attitude towards their gear.
These Test pads, are good, weighing in at 1.14 lbs ea they are still quite light and have comfort as an added bonus as well. Good padding and also a very good quality level.
The SG test batting pads are Made from premium quality imported Polyurethane facing. They have Cotton filled knee rolls with a layer of high density foam reinforcement to help bolster the knee protection. Middle 2″ strap has a Butterfly strap for comfort and the perfect wrap around fit. The front shin protection area is Low density foam filled/ cane reinforced construction. The side calf wings are High density foam. The instep is Mesh with hard-wearing piping, and above the knee you have Added protection on top hat.
And at $65 this is genuinely great quality set of pads that isn’t overpriced like some big UK Boutique brands. You can feel comfortable buying these pads as it would be a wise investment on your part. i dont really see the reason to spend over $100 on a set of pads, or gloves to be honest. Not with products like this coming out of SG. To buy these pads now, please click here.
These new 2012 SG test batting gloves are also a great buy, whilst im not a fan of the sausage finger design i do understand it gives you a better level of protection than the block split finger of the SG maxilite ultimate gloves.
But what you gain in protection you lose in comfort and flexibility. Whilst im not saying these gloves are uncomfortable, but on my hands in particular i just feel a bit cramped in them and a bit stiff on my fingers. As i said in my maxilite review, the same goes with these gloves. The leather on the palms is soft but not to soft that you feel you might tear it or something like that. The gloves offer top of the line protection at a fraction of the cost of top level gloves which is what we have grown accustomed to with SG cricket gear. A good quality product at an affordable price.
As far as features of this glove is concerned the finger rolls are Top grade imported Polyurethane. It also has the Nylon gusset for ventilation. It has a Sponge-padded polyurethane back for better fit and comfort. The sg test batting gloves also have Extra finger protection reinforced with a thermoplastic polyurethane insert in the first two fingers of the lead hand. The finger rolls are Cotton filled. it also has Extra PITTARDS® leather patch on hard-wearing areas of the palm so they may last longer. And of course Toweled wristband with embossed Velcro® fastener
