All Star Adult Ultra Cool Pro Premium Chest Protectors
Solid protector. Fitment a little high. Tedious
This protector feels like a new glove when you first put it on - requires a good sweat and some hard use to break in. I am not really used to having to do this with a chest protector but hopefully it is worth it. It tends to ride a little high so I feel it more on my neck than I like and am accustomed to. I am also trying to get used to the metal clips which fasten the back straps to the protector when taking it on and off. They are a bit small and cheaply made. Would be nice to have something more substantial to grab - particularly when you are rushing to take on and off between at bats/innings. The Diamond iX3 is still the most comfortable protector and has really convenient large plastic clipping mechanisms. Just wanted to try something different. Will likely go back once this one is done.
