Force3 V3 Ultimate Umpire Chest Protector
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: Force3 V3 Ultimate Umpire Chest Protector
Gig Harbor, WA
I've used this chest protector twice. I like it's trim appearance in uniform. I have not taken a real hard shot to the body yet. One thing, the fit is a bit confining in the chest area, particularly when you have to bring your hands together in front of you, such as when writing on the line-up cards. I have a 40" chest and at first I found it slightly awkward taking notes; however, I'm starting to get used to it now. On future models, I would recommend considering shortening the center breast plate and substituting smaller hinged segments to the ends of the main breast plate area to provide slightly more ease of movement for the arms.
Worth every dollar! I'm 6'1 and this umpire chest protector gives great coverage without the bulkiness. It is lightweight and comfortable. It's also surprisingly cool (in comparison to other umpire chest protectors I've worn) on the hot days.
Very adjustable chest protector. Took some time at home to get everything right, but it's worth it. Got hit first game with college-age players who hit hard, and the chest protector worked great. It's a sizable investment, but in my opinion well worth it.
