R. MORA (Florida) on August 5, 2016
Very good product to be use at high level of competition. As an International official for WBSC, is the best I have used.

I recently purchased the MLB Pro Gold chest protector for myself. I've been umpiring for 21 years and this is only the 3rd chest protector that I've ever owned and after only 3 weekends of use I can say with total certainty that this will also be the last that I ever have to purchase. It is very well made and the strap system makes it very comfortable to wear and it's holds in place very well also. I have never felt safer in the upper torso area. I wear a hockey style helmet and have had no problem with the 2 pieces together as far as getting hung up or snagging. Would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a chest protector even if it's your first.

P. BISHOP (Virginia) on October 15, 2013
This is the best chest protector I have ever used. I have take full force hits on it and you don't even feel them. It is lighter and less bulky than my honig and provides better protection. This is a fabulous product.

A. JONES (Virginia) on April 2, 2012
Epic Sports has the lowest price for the West Vest in the marketplace. I bought this item because traditional umpire equipment just isn't good enough. I already feel much safer with the West Vest Gold model and I haven't even worn it while working this spring!

Light weight and fully padded for optimum protection.

It is great. I got hit in the shoulder in the 1st game I wore it for and barly felt a thing, Great Protection,
T. TENNEY (California) on June 10, 2010
Simply the best chest protector I've had. I also have the Platinum, but I like the fit of the gold better around the neck and clavicle. Buying it at Epic Sports was the best way to go. The best price and great delivery time. I was thrilled with the entire deal and will check with the website much more often when I have need of other things, umpire related or otherwise.
B. CARDINAL (Washington) on May 22, 2010
The West Vest Gold is the best Chest Protector I have used. Comfortable fit and great collar bone protection! I would recommed this protector to anyone working High School baseball or above. You won't be disappointed!!!! Bryan

J. COHEN (New York) on August 3, 2009
I bought this chest protector as a replacement for another product. I have only used it in a few games as I just received it. It appears to be the product I hoped it would be. I haven't gotten hit in the chest yet. Maybe it will be a good luck charm too, although I don't get hit too often anyway. Thanks. Jeff Cohen
J. W. GOOCH (Georgia) on April 2, 2009
I received the order in a timely manner and now that I have used the chest protector in several college-level games, I am glad I spent the extra money for the best equipement. The boost in confidence is essential to "no-worries umpiring". Thanks for providing a great product at a great price!
G. SKELLEY (Ohio) on May 24, 2016
GREAT VEST JUST TOO TIGHT AROUND MY NECK, COULD BE BIGGER.
B. MAYBERRY (Texas) on March 19, 2012
I have only had the chance to use my chest protector once since I received it, but I did take a direct hit square in the center of my chest and much to my suprise I didn't feel a thing. I now feel much better protected than with the old one I was using.
A. CLEARY (Ohio) on July 6, 2011
One of the best protectors I've ever worn.
