Champro Pro-Plus Plate Armor Umpire Chest Protector
Best umpire chest protector!! I have had it for a few years now, and good for any level of baseball.
I just got hit on a foul ball on my shoulder on the weekend, and a fair bit of damage was done. I think it was where the pads are meeting and the ball managed to get between the pads. Chest protection is good, but that gap on the shoulder is bad news.

I switched from the Douglas hardshell chest protector to the Champro, Absolutely Love it!! Once you get in the right place, it doesn't move. Paid the extra and got the abdominal extension. Couldn't be more happy!!

In regards to the length of the harness, this chest protector has been known to fit similar umpires as you've described yourself. If you find you need more length in the harness, the UMPLIFE Flex Umpire Chest Protector Harness has extra-long straps, intended to double back in support but could give you a solution.– Ty Unthank
