Description

Along with the Wilson West Vest Gold, the West Vest Platinum Umpire Chest Protector is only 1 of 2 umpire chest protectors endorsed by Major League Baseball (MLB) and is the popular hard shell choice for youth, high school, college and Minor League umpires.

Features

  • Contoured fitted chest protector with extra side padding, neck pad and contoured shoulders for comfort and protection
  • Removable plates for easy cleaning
  • Wilson gold and MLB logos on outer shell - Wilson is the Official Umpire Gear of Major League Baseball┬« and Minor League Baseball┬«.
  • Weight: 3.6 lbs
  • SIZING NOTE: The 12" is Wilson's largest size of the Platinum. The largest size before changes were made in 2009 was 13.5". In our research, we continue to see this product size listed incorrectly on other websites.

    This product also comes in a 10.75", we no longer carry it because the neck opening is too large for smaller frame individuals who would wear the smaller size.

Questions About This Product

Q: Is there an extension for the stomach area ?
– Joey Buchanan
A: 

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.

Q: I need a large harness, for this chest protector?
– David Serritos
A: 

The Force3 Chest Protector Replacement Harness is the best harness option for those looking for a larger, upgraded harness. There are step by step instructions in a blog at the bottom of the harness' product page to install on a West Vest.

Q: Can you get replacement straps for the west vest?
– Matt Brestle
A: 

You can replace the harness and straps for the West Vest, but not with the original Wilson harness. The Force3 Universal Chest Protector Harness and the All-Star Delta Flex Harness are both excellent choices for a replacement. There is a blog with step by step instructions of how to replace your chest protector harness.

Excellent umpire chest protector...I've only been hit a couple times over the past couple years wearing it but haven't felt a thing either of those times. As others have said, replace the harness right away with the All-Star or Wilson version. They make such a big difference in fit.

Great Umpire Chest Protector but suggest immediately replacing stock harness - otherwise it would be a 5 star review!

Used the original West Vest many years ago and was impressed. Used the new version earlier this year. Bought one immediately!!! Coverage and comfort around the collarbone is unmatched. The light weight makes even the hottest days very manageable. I highly recommend!
