Wilson MLB West Vest Gold Umpire Chest Protector
Official Review: Wilson MLB West Vest Gold Umpire Chest Protector
Ty takes you behind the plate with the official umpire chest protector of MLB and shows you why it is trusted at the big league level.
I took a hard hit to upper chest with a protector that lacked the hard shell and felt it for weeks. Immediately ordered this protector as a replacement and have been super satisfied. It fits well and gives me the protection and confidence I need behind the plate. I recommend this chest protector without hesitation.
Read all about this chest protector, been wearing it for 4 years now no problems. I have taken a few hits but nothing that any other high quality chest protectors couldn't take. Until last night, pitcher/catcher mix up..."pow!", right on the shoulder. I felt the impact and a sharp sting. Nothing broken, this morning a little soreness but nothing else. I would strongly recommend this chest protector just from my experience last night...saved me from a sure injury.
I was nervous when I first tried it on under a shirt that it would be too bulky around the shoulders. After working a few innings I got used to it. I have used it all season taken both balls and bats off of it with no problems. It is lightweight and comfortable. I took the hard plastic piece off of the pec pads and tuck them under main pad. The noise it make after a shot alarms the coaches, and I am able laugh it off. In one season, I have only had one ball off of the unprotected stomach and that was due to a ball in the dirt. Highly recommend.
