Force3 V3 Ultimate Umpire Chest Protector
Official 2-Minute Review: Force3 V3 Ultimate Umpire Chest Protector
Heber City, UT
Took a bit of getting used to, but now that I've worn it for a few games, I really do enjoy the lightness of it, and how much cooler I feel on hot days. Happy that I invested in it, and look forward to the protection it provides over my old umpire chest protector.
In my opinion, THE BEST UMPIRE CHEST PROTECTOR ON THE MARKET! I started out with the Champro, then swapped to the West Vest. Loved the protection of the Wilson West Vest, until I found the love of my life FORCE 3 V3 it’s so slim fitting. You don’t get that bulky look like the others. You get the protection of the hardshell but the feel and look of a softshell. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!!! I’m just going to tell you, once you buy anything FORCE 3, you will be swapping everything to them from mask to shin guards! And don’t forget to buy the Force 3 bags to go with them! You will thank me later!
I absolutely love my new Force3 chest protector. Lightweight and has many adjustments to fit you perfectly. Wore it in 95-degree heat and it allows you to breathe. Much better than my West Vest, which I loved. I read that some have issues with the clips. My suggestion is to reach for it under the chest protector, not across the outside. Zero issues. Then, the second one is a piece of cake. I recommend this to anyone doing upper-level baseball. You don't feel a thing. There is also excellent protection around the neck area with the adjustable pad. Just buy it...although mine was a gift :-)
