CLOUD Legguards Review

Well I chose to review my OBO cloud legguards


Before I got my Cloud I was using my clubs leg guards. But I found that even on a nice slippery water base pitch you COULDN’T slide!

When I first ordered them I was regretting not getting the ROBO, as I heard rumours that cloud was useless!!

On the day they arrived I was surprised at how light they were!

I noticed that they looked the same as the ROBO hi-control but presuming with slightly softer foam and a few less perks. But still have a lot of good ideas that you won’t find on many other brands

-The left leg is wider than the right for some reason (probably for extra height when logging or something)

-The wings at the side are lower to the ground which really helps to stop balls just sliding past your foot.

-The straps are hiding so there is wear-n-tear when sliding.

-The oddly shaped buckles help to stop the straps loosening during a game or training.

-The great idea of the tongue that helps stop the leg guards from twisting!

(yes I know these are not cloud but it’s the same idea)


The only flaw I can see with the leg guards is that the area around the knee (highlighted)is quite more built up more than the rest of the pads so when I log there is naturally a gap between them making a lovely target for a good striker. Maybe that is only me as I have short-ish legs but, I have no idea that could help stop this without reducing protection. (yes lets laugh at the very badly drawn picture)

My funky drawing

To finish it all I would like to say that I would recommend cloud leg guards to any keeper as they have absolutely excellent protection, are light and easy to move in and have never caused me a single problem during a match.

By the way if anybody else has had the problem with the built up knee please leave me a comment! and if you dont, leave a comment anyway!!

  1. I can certainly say that the protection these leg guards offer is great.. even tho they are not top spec ROBO Hi Rebounds. The control,protection and ease of movement in these pads are ideal for any keeper, whether they be junior keepers or high level Adult keepers. I have used 3 of the 5 types of OBO pads and I can honestly say they have all been brilliant. I started off with the Yahoo’s, then Clouds for 5 games and I now currently use the Hi Rebounds. They all offer great protection (obvioulsy depending on the level of use.. E.G yahoo’s would not suit an international level player. Any keeper looking to venture into the world of OBO I would highly recommend you do so : )

  2. I have the Cloud ones and they work great 🙂 I play highschool, Junior Varsity, and they offer great protection and comfort. It’s not hard to move in them at all for me, and they are a nice step up from the yahoo that I used to own. Loving the Cloud ones, and recommend any highschool goalie to buy them 🙂

  3. i used to play with clouds a few years back, never found draw back to them but the Hi-rebounds do offer more in the way of stopping surface and harder foam. personally i cant play with out hi-rebounds anymore
