What do you think.........

...of this.




It's a rib and chest guard that appears to double as a type of under armor.

Is the padding supposed to extend below the bottom of your CP? If not, it seems redundant if you have quality gear.

Tim,

In my opinion, this is not bad for players. It is defiantly not for umpires as it does not protect anywhere near as good as the cheapest CO will. Now maybe you are considering this as a BU?

I don't see the benefit for a properly equipped plate umpire. This might be a nice product for a football umpire.

I'm not considering it at all, Ozzy. I ran across it and thought it would be fun to discuss. Kind of like the soccer shin guards on the forearms debate...........

This seems more like something that an umpire might wear:


The other one might be better for a player.
