Diamond Pro Umpire Chest Protector
Official Review: Diamond Pro Umpire Chest Protector
Ty takes you behind the plate and shares the protection features and customization options of this chest protector for baseball and softball umpires.

Bought this chest protector and returned it. It is very good quality and would definitely provide great protection, but it is very bulky and cumbersome. When you have it on with or without the bicep guards, it is difficult to maneuver your arms around to adjust the straps and to get your shirt on. The bicep guards hang on the side of your arms and not on your biceps because of the placement of the buckle that connects the guards to the chest protector. I'm 6'0" with long arms, and the bicep guards went all the way down to my elbows. If you don't have a loose shirt, they will stick out of the bottom of your sleeves. The reviews on this chest protector were very intriguing, which prompted me to buy it, but I'm returning it for the reasons above. I'd suggest you find one to try on and test out before you buy it.
Almost 3 years into wearing this chest protector, and I still love it. It provides all the protection I want without feeling too bulky. Over the years, I have taken several foul balls to the chest and not felt a thing. I have also taken a bat to the arm, but the bicep pad did the job. It is worth the investment for this chest protector.

Absolutely love this Diamond Pro Chest Protector, It has great protection even at the varsity level. I’m kind of a big guy and it has plenty of coverage, it is lightweight, especially on the arms and biceps. A great deal and value for the money.
