All-Star Delta Flex Umpire Chest Protector Replacement Harness
Love this. I used it to replace my factory harness on my Champro chest protector. It keeps the protector higher up, where with the original harness it would loosen and expose my shoulder blades. It would be a five star if the straps were a little longer. Overall would definitely recommend if your CP can accommodate this.
If the straps were a little longer this no doubt would have been a 5-star review. That is my only issue with the harness. Other than that, it is way better than the stock one that came with my West Vest Platinum CP. I used to have to adjust my CP after every pitch...once I switched to this harness, I almost never have to touch my CP. As a note, I bought this prior to Wilson coming out with their own replacement.
Bought this to upgrade my Champion CP harness. Like the design but the straps are way to short, so I cannibalized my original CP harness to extend the straps and it works well and feels much better too!
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Purchased this one and added it to my current CP, but it barely fits to the points and the lower metal clip tries to slip out? A buddy recommended this replacement harness and it seems like a good idea but the straps are really too short so he had his original cannibalized to add length?! Any other ideas? Should I try a different replacement harness?|

The Force3 Universal Umpire Replacement Chest Protector Harness has similar construction to this replacement harness, but features longer straps. The additional material should make the straps long enough so you will not have to make any modifications, other than attaching to your chest protector.– Jim Kirk
