Wilson MLB West Vest Platinum Umpire Chest Protector
Official Review: Wilson MLB West Vest Platinum
We breakdown how the West Vest keeps getting better and better.
Bay City, MI
Comfortable and great wrap around protection for your shoulders. Only flaw is that it is a touch on the shorter side.
I have used different hard shell chest protectors for a long time. But the Wilson West Vest Platinum is so far the best yet, it comes with the added harness which I highly recommend using. I have done baseball and softball with this vest with comfort. The only downside is that you can't buy an extension for the bottom of the vest. I highly recommend this chest protector.
I have this one and the Gold. This protector contoured to my body a little fast. I've had this since 2008 and can say that if you take care of it, you'll get your money's worth. Protection is great and a sleek look with a plate coat!
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Is there an extension for the stomach area ? |
– Joey Buchanan
I'm sorry Joey, but the Wilson Platinum umpire chest protector does not have anywhere to attach an abdomen extension. The Force3 V3 Ultimate chest protector, Schutt XV HDX chest protector, Diamond iX3 chest protector, and both Champro Pro-Plus Plate Armor and Pro-Plus Umpire chest protector are compatible with adding an abdomen extension. If you are asking as a tall person looking for adequate coverage, the buying guide for umpire chest protectors has a very good section on the chest protectors recommended for taller umpires.– Josh Mann
