Diamond Featherweight Umpire Shin Guards
Nice and lightweight - good for when you're doing multiple games in a row behind the plate to wear with a base/non plate shoe - or if you working by yourself and you need a lighter shin guard in order to move around easier.
Sioux City, IA
Light weight and I like the clips for quick access. Tend to shift outward but maintain coverage.
Second set of these shin guards. Other set 8 years old and are still good to use, but wanted a newer pair. As light as any shinguard on the market. I use them on the high school level and 18u fast pitch. Have done as many as six games using them and hardly know I am wearing them. Highly recommend these shin guards.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How do you measure for your size?|
– Isaac Jeffery
Measure your leg from the center of your kneecap down to where the shin guards will rest on your plate shoes. This will result in your shin guard size that you'll match up with shin guard sizes. It is best to pick a shin guard that measures as close to your size without going over. See the Fitting Room for more information and a video guide.– Ty Unthank
