GLOVE RANGE FEATURES
Across the complete Kookaburra cricket glove range are a number of features available within each range depending on the protection level, ranging for Level 1 (Entry) upto Level 5 (Test Match). Some of the glove range features include:
Multi Flex sections are ergonomically positioned flex points on a cricket glove which allow unrestricted ease of movement while batting - enabling players to execute shots to the finest detail. Ergonomically positioned Shark Tooth flex points are an alternative design to Multi Flex and also allow unrestricted ease of movement when batting in the middle.
Total Shock Dispersion (or TSD) is an innovative soft fill layer in the back of the cricket glove hand - providing superior protection, comfort and feel for the most discerning players.
Fibre Reinforced are durable fibre inserts within the tips of the finger rolls offering unrivalled impact protection and instantly dissipate shock felt throughout the batting glove. Airflow Mesh is a lightweight, breathable mesh between the glove protection and pittards, that provides air flow throughout the entire cricket glove to enable unparalleled moisture dispersal and maximum feel while batting.
Premium Pittards use Cougar leather for the cricket glove palm, offering unparalleled comfort and durability while generating supreme grip and feel while holding a cricket bat. As an alternative Premium aniline sheep leather is incredibly soft and supple for comfort, whilst being tough enough to provide support and durability. Sheepskin Leather is another option and is exceptionally soft and comfortable whilst at the same time resilient enough to provide excellent support during shot making.
Strategically positioned, Max Flo ventilation holes perforated throughout the palm and fingers wick moisture away to provide consistent bat grip throughout a long innings.
As standard, each cricket glove is finished with either a 50mm double or single sided towel wrist to help wipe away the perspiration while building that match winning innings and fastened with velcro to make them easy to remove after batting.
Kookaburra gloves are available in a choice of either M (mens) or Y (youth) in either left or right hand gloves.
Whatever cricket glove you decide, Kookaburra always recommend that you try on the batting gloves for fit prior to purchase to maximise comfort and fit. Cricketers all have different hand sizes and shapes so ideally try the gloves on instore, hold a cricket bat and play a few shots to ensure the gloves are not too loose nor too tight. Besides your cricket bat, your cricket gloves are a very important item in your cricket bag and could be the difference between a good season and great one.
To complement the batting glove range Kookaburra offer a range of cricket bats to complement the range designs and equivalent products in batting pads also. The cricket bats have different profiles to compliment different styles of batting and the batting pads range offers complimentary designs and appearances ranging from traditional cane to flat foam – again it is purely down to personal preference as to which style you would use as all styles offer excellent cricket protection.
