All-Star Cobalt Umpire Chest Protector
Official Review: All-Star Cobalt Umpire Chest Protector
Ty takes you behind the plate with @AllStarSportsVids most innovative chest protector. The high-quality materials paired with a low profile fit is fully customizable to accommodate all body sizes.
Working on this one now. Wearing it around the house a little at a time with a plate shirt and tucked in. Typical "in house" w/out live games break in period. Looking forward to using it for real.
I also own a Force3 and a Wilson West Vest, but the All-Star Cobalt is my favorite. I feel on my body type (5’10” 200 lbs) it fits me as low profile as the Force3 while being as protective as the West Vest. Super customizable but requires tools (don’t lose the hardware!), still only took me 10 minutes to remove the lower extension and re-position the shoulder caps. My only complaint is it traps more heat than it should, but that is mostly balanced-out by being so lightweight and low-profile. Overall great job by All-Star!
Excellent umpire chest protector. Wore it straight out of the box (after adjusting the straps of course). Good fit, solid protection. I've now taken off the lower pad and extra shoulder plate. Waiting to see how that feels. Definitely worth the $$$.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||The chest protector has 4 sets of screws and backings for the shoulder protectors (in the "how to" video they are shown at about 1:23). Do you sell the screws and backings or can you advise on the size of these items so I can try and locate? The protector is great; however, these screws came loose at the end of last season and I lost them without knowing. Thank you!|

We are sorry to hear that these screws have come loose. Unfortunately, we do not sell these screws separately. Replacing these fasteners would be fairly easy by a local hardware store. You could take the chest protector or the screws currently on it to the store and match them.– Hunter Fry
