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.
The chest protector looks nice but is not ideal for women with a chest or a person with a wide neck. It would also be nice for there to be optional straps on the bicep piece to keep it in place. Somewhat difficult to move in.
Russells Point, OH
Lightweight chest protector that provides plenty of protection for any level. Taken two direct shots to the upper chest the first week wearing and felt nothing. Like the low profile as well. I’m 6’1” and the 13” fits perfectly.
This protector is amazing! Switched from my old Wilson West Vest Platinum to this one. It's low profile and looks good under a shirt or jacket. I found out during my 2nd hitter that it takes inside foul straight to the chest really well. Highly recommended!
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
