Champro Umpire Chest Protector Bicep Extensions
Lake Elsinore, CA
These are worth their weight in gold. I have been struck more than once by a thrown bat and have felt nothing. Taken a couple of foul balls and again felt nothing. I recently bought a new Gerry Davis chest protector made by Diamond and changed out the bicep protection for these. Covers much more of the bicep than the ones Diamond provides.
These are a great add, but they make your protector bulky. That being stated, I was able to snug them up close enough to the shoulders as to protect my arms, and still be able to move. As for protection, they are solid.
These extensions are well worth the money. They saved me several bruises last season. The only thing I would change is the strap for the bicep. It's too short (for big guys anyway) and the velcro chafes when it comes undone. If the arms of your shirt are tight enough you can do without the straps and the protectors stay in place just fine.
