Wilson MLB West Vest Pro Umpire Shin Guards
I’m 6’4” and these fit me perfect, great feel and great protection. I’ve used them quite a few times now and will never go to anything else. I can move great in these and they’re super comfortable! I was hit with a pitch that the catcher missed completely and I didn’t feel a thing, just heard the loud bang. Very impressed with these!
Love them! My 2nd pair. With 100-150 games a year, 1/2 with my leg guards strapped on, I got 12 years with the first pair.
Fits well. Doesn’t hamper movement. Great protection. Very pleased.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||I've had these shin guards for a few years, and I really enjoy them. But both the clips and the rings they clip to have heavily rusted. What causes this, and is there a way to fix it?|
– John Uhal
Moisture and exposure to the air combined will eventually rust these metal pieces. Best practice is to wipe down your gear after each use and store in a dry area.– Ty Unthank
