All-Star Cobalt Umpire Shin Guards
Official Review: All-Star Cobalt Umpire Shin Guards
Light and minimalist leg guard. They don't wrap around leg and there isn't much ankle coverage. Had to use extra padding in knee cap and shin and still felt shots.
All-Star Cobalt umpire shin guards feel and look amazing. Took a shot off the shin, heard the noise but didn't feel a thing. I wear a slim fit Plus-POS set of shin guards that were painful most of the time now they are buried in the shed. I usually wear a size 17 but went with the 19 instead, no a problem. When the 17 inch guards are back in stock I will purchase those also. These are slim and wrap around the calf for extra protection. Excellent product. Thanks Ump-Attire.com.
Extremely lightweight and easy to move in. However, I’ve taken multiple shots this season with them, and the protection is lacking.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||I was all set to order a pair of the new All-Star Cobalt leg guards but two of the three initial reviews raise concern about their protective ability. I have small (thin/skinny) lower legs and your product review indicated these would be a good application for this body type. I also planned on using them for both baseball and softball high school level play. Your thoughts? Thank you for your time.|

The main reason we suggest this for small legs is that the plastic shell can be widened or curled inward for a tight wrap around feel. There are other more protective styles available. To compare where these rank, read our full Shin Guard Buying Guide.– Brandon Lawson
