LOVE the Force3 umpire chest protector. I'm keeping my tried-and-true West Vest Platinum for spring ball when I'm wearing a coat, and am not concerned about breath-ability. But, the Force3 really is in a class by itself...it's slim, comfortable, and provides great protection. In the summer, it's WAY cooler than the Platinum.

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.

Questions About This Product

Q: I am 5'6" and about 175 lbs with a 42" chest. Will this fit me ok? I prefer short protectors.
– David Crooks

This Force3 Umpire Chest Protector allows for multiple adjustments making it a one size fits most. You are able to remove the abdomen protection, shortening the chest protector to 12" in length. Remember with FREE Returns, there is no risk of purchasing to see if this will work for you.
