Champion Body Armor Umpire Chest Protector
Official 2-Minute Review: Champion P2 Umpire Chest Protector
Ty Unthank shows you why all umpires from Minor League Baseball to Little League love this Champion Umpire Chest Protector.
New Fairfield, CT
I use this for Fast Pitch Softball at a high level and have taken a couple off the chest/shoulder and this really does protect. Good padding and nice thin hard shell outside. Nice low profile, you don't get the Middle linebacker look and it's not too heavy. Lots of guys like the K2 protector but, this offers a lot more protection and not too much weight. Excellent value. Light weight, great fit, solid protection. Some guys didn't like the straps. I have no issues with them.
Really happy with this chest protector. Very comfortable and the low profile is great for getting a jacket on over it. I have taken several hits to the chest and shoulder with no problem. Excellent protector for the price.
I bought this to replace my Champro Pro-Plus, but ended up returning it. It was smaller, seemed less protective, and I didn’t like the strap(s) in the back. I would’ve installed a replacement strap for sure to change from the original. I bought another Champro instead.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Does the neck opening fit snug or does it have a little room? Also, would the UMPLIFE harness work with this chest protector?|
– Gerald Arnold
The neck padding at the throat of this Champion Body Armour Chest Protector is 5.5 inches across. Having a snug or looser fit around the neck will depend on how tightly two top shoulder straps, the "Y" of the harness, are tightened. The UMPLIFE Flex Umpire Chest Protector Harness will definitely work with this chest protector. Hold on to the plastic slider and T-Hooks from your stock harness as the UMPLIFE harness does not come with this hardware.– Ty Unthank
