High quality umpire chest protector. Solid fitting and protects all the necessary areas. I'm just under 6' and got the 15". I do recommend getting a different harness (All-Star System 7 or the Wilson Premium replacement) as the harness it comes with will easily twist around and make it uncomfortable.

A very high quality, low profile umpire chest protector from Douglas. Would have been 5 stars if not for the unusually flat panels. As mentioned in other reviews, they do show under your shirt and it's a constant battle to use the hairdryer to get the edges to curve (and stay curved) around my torso. Once done, it feels really comfortable. I do agree that it needs a better harness. I switched out the manufacturer's one with the "UMPLIFE Flex Umpire Chest Protector Harness". It fits perfectly. Another plus is it makes it easier to put on and take off. I have not yet had the opportunity to "game test" the product because our season is delayed due to covid, and I expect to be totally satisfied. I will be updating my rating after I have used it in a game.

If this is essentially the 3-panel 15" Douglas hard shell rebranded for Smitty, then this is an awesome umpire chest protector, my favorite hard-shell over either Wilson. If you're tall, the 15" 3-panel protector will cover your lowest ribs and then some. I've taken shots above 90 mph (honest) and not felt a thing. Drawbacks: (1) the chest panels are kind of flat, and this protector will show under your shirt more than some others. I find myself continually trying to bend the ends to be more wrap around; (2) stock harness is just ok, get an All-Star Delta or Force 3 harness right away, both fit, and I've worn both with this protector. Did I say the Douglas is hands down my all-time absolute favorite hard shell?

Questions About This Product

Q: Hello. Great chest protector - "Smitty" I am 5'9". Is a 15 inch too big? It sounds like it is for taller folks. I assume a 14 inch would fit my size?
– Jeff Zelsdorf

Thank you for reaching out, Jeff. You are correct, a 15 inch chest protector is most likely suitable for a taller umpire. Our website has a Fitting Room Guide and a Crew How-To video with information on how to properly measure and size yourself for an umpire chest protector.
