Champion Body Armor Umpire Chest Protector
Official 2-Minute Review: Champion P2 Umpire Chest Protector
Ty Unthank shows you why all umpires from Minor League Baseball to Little League love this Champion Umpire Chest Protector.
I bought this to replace my Champro Pro-Plus, but ended up returning it. It was smaller, seemed less protective, and I didn’t like the strap(s) in the back. I would’ve installed a replacement strap for sure to change from the original. I bought another Champro instead.
Westlake Village, CA
3 seasons and about 149 plates at a high level of baseball. Taken a couple of foul balls in the upper 90s. Great thin design, easily put my UMPLIFE harness on it. I was initially concerned giving up my West Vest but my Champion has never let me down. Was recommended by a couple of friends in MiLB.
Love the low profile look it gives. I don’t look like a middle linebacker, which IMO is the look the fuller size protectors give. The straps are completely adjustable for all body types. I felt the price was also perfect, not too expensive. Shipping was very fast I believe I had it in 3-4 days. Overall a very positive experience with both the product and the company.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Does the neck opening fit snug or does it have a little room? Also, would the UMPLIFE harness work with this chest protector?|
– Gerald Arnold
The neck padding at the throat of this Champion Body Armour Chest Protector is 5.5 inches across. Having a snug or looser fit around the neck will depend on how tightly two top shoulder straps, the "Y" of the harness, are tightened. The UMPLIFE Flex Umpire Chest Protector Harness will definitely work with this chest protector. Hold on to the plastic slider and T-Hooks from your stock harness as the UMPLIFE harness does not come with this hardware.– Ty Unthank
