In 3 fitted sizes, the Wilson West Vest Gold Umpire Chest Protector provides superior protection for multiple body types. More MLB umpires choose "The Gold" as their everyday chest protector than any other.


  • Fitted with extra side padding for extra comfort and protection
  • Black hard shell on outside with soft inner padding
  • Contoured for comfortable fit
  • Removable plates allow for easy cleaning
  • Gold Wilson and MLB logos on outer shell - Wilson is the Official Umpire Gear of Major League Baseball┬« and Minor League Baseball┬«.
  • Sized differently from other chest protectors, the Gold is available in 3 general chest sizes and lengths. This makes the Gold a good hard shell choice, especially for umpires with a smaller frame body type.  Sizes available are based on coat sizes and lengths.

    M-L (38-44) - 12" (neck to bottom)
    L-XL (46-54) - 13" (neck to bottom)

Questions About This Product

Q: I am 6’3 and 280lbs and want a hard shell chest protector. Would either the West vest gold or platinum fit me?
– Douglas Swan

Both the Wilson Gold (L/XL) and Platinum should fit someone of your frame Douglas. The Platinum has a larger neck opening, the Gold a smaller one, so the Platinum will most likely fit your frame better. With free returns offered to the contiguous United States, there is no risk to you of ordering both to see which fits you best.

Q: How do I determine the size that I should buy?
– Carson Boyd

Detailed sizing information can be found in the fitting room Carson. We offer free returns to the contiguous United States so if you are between sizes, there is no risk of ordering both and return the chest protector that does work for you.

Q: Looking at buying the West Vest, but are there upper arm extensions that I can purchase and add to the vest?
– Randy Mathis

The only Wilson chest protector compatible with upper arm extensions is the Wilson MLB Charcoal Umpire Chest Protector. The Charcoal comes with upper arm extensions and are removable if need be.

I had the Diamond iX3 Umpire Chest Protector and upgraded to the West Vest Gold. 1st time out took one right in the middle of the chest and didn't feel a thing. A little less protection in my mid section than what I was used to but wouldn't trade the West Vest in for anything. LOVE IT and it's light and breathable, which is nice in the heat and humidity of Missouri summer weather.

Upgraded to this Wilson West Vest Gold after lots of research. The ratings from other users were spot-on. Solid and comfortable and easy to adjust. I did replace the harness, as suggested by other users. Great purchase!
