Diamond iX3 Umpire Shin Guards
I just got these new umpire shin guards near the end of the high school season and I was hit directly in the guard the first game out with them and didn’t really feel the impact like my old ones. I am so glad I chose this brand. It is compact but gives great protection.
It gives good protection and is comfortable to wear.
Bought these as I recently got into umpiring. Overall, superb quality. I did size up and am glad I did so for more protection. I wish the foot guard was simple to detach, but I cut it off as I have plate shoes. As others have said I wear tights or long socks to help protect from the straps.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Would the 15.5” be okay from me? I’m 5’9 and have a shin size of 15.5”. My old guards were 15.5” as well but people have worried me by saying these are too short. They are also out of the 17” so I have to make sure these fit.|
