Diamond Pro Umpire Chest Protector
I have recently made the switch from a softshell chest protector to this Diamond Pro hardshell umpire chest protector. I have not worn it behind the plate yet. But I cannot wait to try it out next season.

I purchased this chest protector after owning the Wilson West Vest Gold and a couple others. Wore it this last season doing upper division little league games (50/70, juniors and seniors). Took several shots from uncaught pitches and I did not feel a thing. I am a fan of the bicep protection. I was struck in the arm by a bat thrown back by a batter in a seniors division game and it made contact directly on the center of the bicep protection on my right arm. Again, I didn't feel a thing (the bat hit the bicep protector so hard and loud it scared the catcher). A terrific fit and stays in place during multiple games.

Great chest protector! Feel more safe in this with the hard plastic shell and extra areas that are covered, more than other more standard protectors. Fits great.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How would you compare this umpire chest protector to the West Vest Gold in terms of protection and thickness of the padding? Is this more low profile?|
– Willie Traynor
The Diamond Pro Umpire Chest Protector is relatively the same thickness and provides similar protection with a similar profile to the Wilson MLB West Vest Gold. The Diamond Pro however has more strategic breaks allowing more flexibility and a contoured fit.– Josh Mann
