All-Star System Seven Umpire Chest Protector
Great so far! First year certified umpire for the OHSAA. I had done some LL rec games and tournaments locally. Now traveling and purchased this because I'm a taller ump (6'5). Great protection so far, the only complaint is the side pads above the ribs tend to stick out/come out which I don't think looks good and am pushing them back. So therefore if I could I'd rate this protector 4.5/5. Maybe I need to tighten the side straps, trial, and error perhaps!
Good protection behind the plate. Great chest protector!
I have always used the West Vest. It certainly provided me with great protection. It would also trap a lot of the heat. So I saw this and thought I would give it a try. I haven't had it that long, but protection is as good as the West Vest. The when it is hot, it doesn't trap the heat around your chest. The ventilation is much better. It's seems to fit better as well. Glad I bought it and you will too!
