Two fairly affordable abdominal guards for guarding your private parts.

A. GM Abdominal Guard

GM Abdominal Guard

Price

The GM abdominal guard costs ₹ 135. It is made from quality materials since they protect a man’s groin. 

Material

The abdominal guard is made from hard plastics and includes a high impact poly-protector material designed to absorb the force of an impact and prevent injury to the groin area. The ‘border’ or cushion surrounding the abdominal guard is made with foam casting and stuffed with fluffed cotton; this helps reduce the force of the impact and softens the blow.

It still follows the traditional shape of an abdominal guard and makes use of the pinless buckle system which means that to use this abdominal guard, all you need to do is insert it down your trousers. There are no straps or pins to hold it in place.

Area Protected

The abdominal guard is meant to protect a man’s groin area, so it needs to be strong to absorb impacts from a cricket ball travelling at speeds in excess of 100 kph. A tall order for such a small protective gear.

Comfort

The SG abdominal guard is comfortable to use so long as it does not keep moving around when worn. This is a drawback that guards with straps won’t experience.


B. DSC Armour Cricket Abdominal Guard

DSC Armour Cricket Abdominal Guard

Price

The DSC Armour Cricket Abdominal Guard costs ₹ 129. A fairly cheap price for a safety equipment with so much to protect.

Material

The DSC abdominal guard makes use of a new shape; it is designed to ‘attach’ itself to the wearer’s trousers so that it won’t keep moving during a game. It also follows the ‘natural shape’ of men’s private parts. The guard is made from high impact poly-protector plastics, ensuring a strong and durable guard.

It is lined with soft and durable materials such as cotton and foam so that it won’t feel uncomfortable when worn and so that when struck, it won’t transfer as much force to the wearer. It also makes use of the no-strap system which could prove problematic when playing games over extended periods of time.

Area Protected

The abdominal guard is meant to protect men’s ‘private parts’ so they should have been made from quality materials.

Comfort

The abdominal guard is worn inside the trousers so that no straps are required. This is comfortable simply because there are no straps or pins that could make you feel uncomfortable. The guard also has several ventilation holes that allow air to pass through.


C. Final Comparison

Both abdominal guards offer the same amount of protection from ‘unwanted contact’ with a cricket ball and both cost nearly the same price. It all comes down to your personal preference on which to buy.
