All-Star Cobalt Umpire Chest Protector
Official 2-Minute 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.
Right out of the box!!!!! If you are a small frame umpire like me and looking for a real low profile chest protector, this is the one!!! I am 5' 4" 140 pounds guy. I have tried many umpire chest protectors, including the Wilson Gold. Obviously, I looked like a NFL linebacker. I loved the protection, but hated the look. I was a little worry, I was going to spend more money and not look the way a professional should. To my surprise, the new All-Star Cobalt umpire chest protector fitted perfectly after taking (very easily) the extension off. It feels very light and looks awesome. I am very happy with the purchase and will recommend it to all of my fellow umpires.
Only giving 4.5 stars because I haven't actually used it in a game yet. Overall impressions:1) Incredibly adjustable 2) Super professional look and profile 3) Robust yet thin! Check out my comparison video: https://youtu.be/6Yp1qeF5fKI Awesome umpire chest protector. Can't wait to use it in a game!
Excellent quality. Easy to adjust based on the user's needs. Only felt the impact of a baseball, with good coverage. Being average size, I removed the middle shoulder cap. Kept the extension, but it doesn't look bulky and doesn't noticeably add to the weight.
