Wilson MLB Pro Stock Titanium Umpire Helmet
Cedar Rapids, IA
Do not buy this helmet if the following apply to you: you have a larger head (I wear a 7 3/8), if you wear prescription eyewear, or if you wear sunglasses on the stick. While the comfort is good versus the leather headband of the FX 2.0, it will NOT accommodate eyewear, and you will lose a layer of skin on your ears if you have a larger head. I am very disappointed with this latest attempt from Wilson. I ordered an All-Star System 7 helmet, it accommodates my eyewear, my larger head, and while I would implore All-Star to fit it with a titanium mask to shave off a bit of weight, the comfort is way, way ahead of this helmet.
I have only worn this helmet for three games and really like it. Two things, it is tight on my ears to the point it rubbed a layer of skin off my right ear. With it being this tight there's no way to wear any kind of glasses. I do have kinda big melon, 7 1/2. Outside of it being tight and can't wear glasses, I like it.
I like this product. There seems to be an improvement with the inner lining over its predecessor. It also seems that it flips off a little easier while wearing sun glasses under the mask.
