First time using this chest protector was on March 18, 2017 for my opening season of baseball at my park. This is a very good product, lightweight, and very comfortable to wear. I had a few foul pitches that bounced right off, but no issues of protection whatsoever. This replaced an old thin protector that I had been using for many years, and this upgrade was long overdue. It is very easy to wear, no problems putting on my umpire shirt. You can actually breathe comfortably with no problems, and the protection on the inside and out is well worth the money I spent on this product. While the length may be smaller going down towards the bottom of my stomach, that area very seldom has baseballs or wild pitches affecting that part of my body. This area of coverage with this protector is where I always get hit by wild pitches and foul balls. This was a great investment and after my first day on the field, I knew I made the right decision to buy this product.
