I have one, and wore it last year in a college showcase in Spartanburg, SC when it was blazing hot. Took a shot to the upper chest on a pitch that the catcher set up on the outside corner and couldn't catch up to it. Hit me square. I really felt it, much more so than I would have using my Gerry Davis "Davishield" protector. Now, I only use the Adams when I work rec or JV games.
