Upgraded to the West Vest Gold after two seasons with the Champro hard shell chest protector and I'm more than happy. I was concerned that the side rib pads would get in the way (like the Champro always having to be adjusted) but they didn't move. No wonder this is so well-loved, I should have bought it to begin with. I knew the harness was questionable from prior reviews so I bought an alternative harness and the chest protector never moved during 27 innings of plate work yesterday. Couldn't be happier.

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.

If you want the broad shoulder look with great protection, this is for you. I am 6' 190lbs and I purchased the medium. I feel like I might have been okay with a small. The bottom hits me between my sternum and belly button. Adjustable straps give you ample wiggle room for a tighter or looser fit. I did lose some mobility compared to the Champro Chest Protector I was previously using, however this issue could possibly go away the more it gets broken in. Well worth the expense.
