    Was sat having a think about this randomly...

    @Boots1994 if you're in the UK - File the issue with your bank/building society. Get an indemnity or refund claim going.

    You should in theory either:

    1. Get your money back.

    2. Speed them up quite considerably!

    (Also maybe worth speaking to the relevant authorities!)

    Hi, It goes to Oakley who then repackage it and send to me so I don't deal with import taxes or anything like that.

    I'd focus on getting your money back and buying from a more reputable company!!!!

    I hate badmouthing anyone, but i'm struggling to find positives other than the kit is really light and suits my playing style

    @Boots1994 the Oakley gear and offence not intended looks to be a direct copy of obo gear ( which I don't use as a disclaimer ) have you ever used new robo gear ? As an aside one of obo s strengths is it's durability leg guards last forever and kickers prob last longer than others even the brand I wear ( non sponsored through choice ) will the the Indian made gear do the same ?

    Admittedly no, this is the first time I've ever used new kit of any brand...

    I guess time will tell, if im honest I'm not holding out much hope, but hopefully they'll last me a season or two before I buy decent (probably OBO) kit. The shorts I wear are the OBO bored shorts but they were second hand

    Leg guards (still not what I was expecting), helmet, tshirt, cap and bag arrived for me today...still not happy with service or anything but I feel like this is one of those learn and move on situations. On the plus side the helmet fits amazing and looks pretty
