Fits great I wear a hat while wearing the helmet no problem running proper mechanics with it behind the plate. I also wear glasses again no issue. This is my third helmet coming from the Wilson and the Force 3. By far this is the best helmet. By the way, an excellent price for this.

I just tried this new helmet for the first time last night. It wears well, has plenty of vision, and allows me to wear sunglasses that won't come off when I remove the helmet. It is a bit weighty, but I am used to that since this is my fourth All-Star helmet. I will not wear anything else.

Just delivered yesterday. I’m one of the very few “bucket” wearers in the area and I’ve had my All-Star System 7 Titanium for several years. The weight of the MVP5 is a concern. Carrying an extra pound on your neck for 9 innings can have negative effects. Also, the location of the straps that hold the back plate is a problem as they hit your ears when putting it on. The straps are located inside the shell. This was not the case with the System 7 as the straps were fastened on the back of the plate and ran outside the shell. This location may also subject the straps to perspiration and reduce wear time. Protection is very important at the higher levels of baseball but so is comfort. All—Star protection is unparalleled but they seem to have sacrificed comfort in the process.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Does the padding come out to clean like the older model System 7? I have a Force3 the interior padding keeps separating. I love the protection of the Force3. Direct shots just ting and you feel nothing. I've had concussions I have the Force3 mask for FASTPITCH. Need your input please, they are quite pricey.|
