Wilson MLB Pro Stock Titanium Umpire Helmet
Way to tight!!!! The padding is great, but lands right on the ears. Glasses or sunglasses can not be worn with this umpire helmet. If you manage to get the helmet on with your glasses, you are not able to get the helmet off quickly when needed. I should've read the reviews prior to this purchase.
I love the look, weight, and finish of the helmet, BUT it runs small. My cap size is 7 3/8 and only after a lot of adjustments was I able to *squeeze* it over my head. Very uncomfortable and not practical for 9 innings of use. Due to the side padding in the helmet, unless you have a truly tiny—and I mean tiny—head, I can’t imagine anyone being able to wear sunglasses underneath.
This umpire mask is amazing! Comfortable and lightweight. I owe this mask my life since, without it, I would not be alive today. I bought this 2 years ago, replacing my standard mask (10+ years old). Last season I had a ball come off the bat and curved weird and hit me in the ear!!! It took me out of the game with only a headache and some ringing in the ear, but at least I'm still alive!!!
Questions About This Product
|Q:||I wore glasses which were no problem with my old Wilson Shock fx2.0. So a few years ago, I bought a replacement for it, also a Shock fx2.0 and put it away, figured it would work with glasses, just like it did with my old one, but came to find out, it doesn't. Will this helmet allow me to wear my glasses?|

The padding is noticeably a little tighter along the side of the helmet. May be a bit more restrictive with glasses. With free returns, it's worth trying on.– Ty Unthank
