This is a great umpire shin guard for lower levels, softball or just those who prefer light weight, less bulkier shin guards. It is less protective than others; but, designed that way so that it's much lighter. Actually, it's half the weight of the highest end shin guards.

Even more unique is its single-knee design that does not use a strap at the top for less irritation.

Note: The size 17 of the DLG-LITEs has been re-designed with additional plastic outer shell just under the knee area. You'll want to purchase the 17" here as we have the latest, more protective version.


  • Diamond grid tech foam offers unsurpassed ventilation to stay cool.
  • Strapless single-knee design prevents irritation behind the knee.
  • Extremely lightweight plastic
  • Protection that is up to 2lbs lighter than other brands
  • Low-profile design makes it feel like your not wearing shin guards.
  • Durable snap-lock Tifco buckles
  • Removable toe extension
  • Weight: 15" (1 lbs 11 oz), 17" (1 lbs 12 oz), 18.5" (1 lbs 14 oz)

Had a set of these for years. Very light, good protection from foot to knee. Easy to care for too. Highly recommend. Buying a second set as a replacement.

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.
