Diamond iX3 Umpire Shin Guards
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.
Purchased these for high school ball. They are less bulky than my Wilson umpire shin guards which will give me more room to move, especially when working alone.
Just got these a week ago and have used them about 9 games so far from 14u to HS Varsity ball. Love them. They are lighter weight and color than my Wilson Pros with just as much protection.
