Champro Varsity Umpire Gear Set
Great starter umpire set. I'm a first year umpire doing mainly 10u baseball and softball. This gear has already taken a few hits as some of the catchers aren't quite mobile behind the plate yet. Have taken some pitches and foul balls off of the mask, chest protector, and shin guards so far without issues. Mask is extremely lightweight, which I love. I would recommend ordering some more comfortable pads for the mask, but all in all another great product from Champro.
The gear is perfect for a starter set. I have been umpiring for 30 years, I was very satisfied with the quality of the equipment.
As a first-season umpire, I appreciated having so many things I needed packaged together in one purchase. Mask, shin guards, and brush are great so far. Ballbag material not as nice as the separate cloth one I ordered. Chest protector does its job but has extra pads on top of collarbone that, in my opinion, make me look too bulky around the neck and cause my shirts to fit awkwardly over it.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||What's the best way to get the smell out of my Champro chest protector?|
– Shane Leedy
Eliminating odors from a chest protector can be done in many different ways ranging from Lysol or Febreeze sprays. I like to leave mine out in the sun and let the sun dry out the moisture, eliminating odors. Letting your gear air out after each use will help keep odors down.– Ty Unthank
