Kookaburra Wicket Keeping Gloves Review 2017

Kookaburra wicket keeping gloves come in two styles, the traditional long cuff and the newer short cuff style. Throughout the range, on both long and short cuffs Kookaburra have applied their K flex patch to gives support on the back of the glove without compromising flexibility.

All their gloves have a catching cuff looping between thumb and first finger. The fingers on all the gloves have durable fibre wear patches on the ends. The padding is Kookaburra's uniquely designed catching cup.
