This is a fantastic chest protector. I bought it in the small-medium size after discussing it's fit with Rob Drake, MLB umpire, and with Jim Kirk before ordering. Jim assured me that if it didn't fit they would exchange it, no problem. It did a fantastic job. You won't get stomach coverage with it but the chest and shoulder protection, lightweight feel and freedom of movement and relative coolness versus chest protectors with more coverage is worth it to me. No break in time required for fit other than adjusting harness to make sure you have collarbone coverage and snugness against torso. I recommend taping the straps after you get a good fit. The pads are removable and washable. It is simply a great protector for the highest levels of baseball. 100% confidence in this piece of equipment. Bought mine in 2007. Still going strong.
