It offers a great deal of protection, although it doesn't do much for anything below the ribs. I've taken a few bounces into just below the sternum that have hurt a bit, but you can't feel anything off the chest or shoulders. My only gripe is how bulky it is. Neither my pullover or my fleece will fit over it, and they are both a bit baggy when I'm wearing them on the bases. After a little bit it will also start pulling my shirt up, so I have to use a flex belt to keep my shirt in place. The other bonus is that it makes me look totally buff, and with shin guards and plate shoes I feel like RoboCop walking onto the field.

Great product but definitely need to upgrade the harness. I had a real hard time getting the harness off over my head with original harness.

Bought the 12" size, used it for one game and going back to my old chest protector. I felt constricted the whole game, could not lift my arms very far and had issues taking off and putting on my umpire mask. I read all the reviews saying how it fits great, and I don't get it. Plus, it kept irritating my neck. The neck opening seems to be too small and my neck is only 17".

Questions About This Product

Q: Is there an extension for the stomach area ?
– Joey Buchanan
A: 

I'm sorry Joey, but the Wilson Platinum umpire chest protector does not have anywhere to attach an abdomen extension. The Force3 V3 Ultimate chest protector, Schutt XV HDX chest protector, Diamond iX3 chest protector, and both Champro Pro-Plus Plate Armor and Pro-Plus Umpire chest protector are compatible with adding an abdomen extension. If you are asking as a tall person looking for adequate coverage, the buying guide for umpire chest protectors has a very good section on the chest protectors recommended for taller umpires.
