Champion Body Armor Umpire Chest Protector
Official 2-Minute Review: Champion Body Armor Umpire Chest Protector
Hands down, this is the all-around BEST umpire chest protector currently on the market. It's $55 (!!!), plenty of coverage, fits super well, breathes great for a hard shell, and the side padding actually isn't obstructive. I've had mine for 4 years, and it's still going strong! I haven't even had to replace the harness, believe it or not. If you're looking for a hardshell, you're cheating yourself if you're not seriously considering this as an option.
Great chest protector! I was a little leary at first whether it would be enough protection! Been hit multiple times and it definitely does the job! Love it! Plus my plate coat fits perfectly now!
Was looking for a low profile chest protector with plenty of shoulder/collar bone protection. A friend who umpires in North Carolina summer heat recommended the Champion. It is working out great. Love the look, flexibility, breath-ability and protection. Seems like a steal at the price. Having only used it twice the side flaps are a bit annoying but not sure if it is me or the chest protector. Might have to make a minor adjustment there.

The Champion Body Armor Umpire Chest Protector uses a T-Hook attachment system so it is recommended to replace the stock harness with the Wilson Premium Replacement Harness.– Ty Unthank
