A very exciting newcomer to the cricket protective equipment market, Stretton-Fox guards have been developed through the production of concealed anti-riot blunt trauma body shielding for the armed forces.
In 2012, Stretton-Fox manufactured cricket protective equipment, such as thigh pads and arm guards, privately for professional cricketers representing over 14 counties of the UK, as well as internationally to professionals in Australia, India, West Indies, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada and the USA.
All guards are entirely handmade in the UK and made to order. The Stretton-Fox range includes thigh pads, chest guards, arm guards and wicket keeping / fielding shin pads that are all extremely lightweight and offer the highest levels of protection on the market today.
On first use, Stretton-Fox guards will need to be adjusted into final position for each user. As all the guards are malleable, this is achieved by bending and holding into the desired shape.
In addition, all Stretton-Fox guards are machine washable.
