  1. It seems my modifications to the Schutt XV chest protector have popularized a trend, and inspired several others to join in. I now have 4 CP's here that I'll be making a variety of modifications to so as to extend and improve their usefulness. Schutt XV – This will be using a ULFH from @Razzer (which I've taken to nicknaming RayFlex or, in this case StingRay) in the 3-strap variant. Instead of utilizing the existing yoke – as we did with @D62 blue http://umpire-empire.com/index.php?/topic/65283-ump-life-delta-flex-style-harness/&do=findComment&comment=303927 – I got my hands on a few of these yoke-point parts, and we'll be using one of them instead. Douglas WestVest – This will be using either a DeltaFlex or a Force3 NRH. The wearer has a slim body frame, so I might go with a DeltaFlex, but the NRH might be the better route with its longer straps and less cost. This has also been cleaned (needed it), received new hardware (black T-hooks, nylon buckles and tri-glides instead of corroded metal), and some rivets are being replaced with aluminum Chicago screws. Honig's K-1 CP – A new harness will be a massive improvement, and will be getting one of the three Flex-style harnesses, depending on cost, of course. It will also see its shoulder plates bent and shaped to arch much truer and more conforming. The primary task will be determine a means of fastening the straps to the harness; the current method uses not much more than velcro and is annoying and ineffective. Schutt AiR Flex I – Instead of using the TPU-EVA foam bricks the XV relies on, the AiR Flex uses Brock Beads (which I'll explain during my rebuild of the unit). This aside, the two are are nearly the same, using virtually the same parts. I would truthfully take an XV into any level of baseball, but the thinner AiR Flex might give me pause at the adult-level stuff. That's not to say that it's still not a viable CP, as I've witnessed umpires do adult-level ball with softshells and Davishields. On the AiR Flex, we'll be cutting away the yoke and employing a 4-strap Flex harness once again. I'll also be repositioning the ailettes from "on top" the shoulder – where they bely their football pad origins – down to somewhere more forward. If I had my druthers, I would actually try to put together a closet/garage service on refitting CP pads ala what Team Wendy's offered. I'll update this thread as work progresses!
  2. I have seen a bunch of posts inquiring about the +POS Cobra CP. The only information I found online was not good at all. So I went ahead bought one and wanted to share my review with everyone that might interested in purchasing one. Please keep in mind this is my first video review of anything ever. Hope it answers some questions about it. Tha
  3. Bought in January, Removed the wings, worn in about 10 games. Still in great condition. I'll include the original harness, since I cut my delta flex way down and it wont fit you unless you're as skinny as me at 6'0 150 lb $130/OBO with shipping included. Paypal or Venmo, PM for offers.
  4. So I switched from my beloved Schutt XV to the All Star System 7, for various reasons. And as usual when we have a new CP, I was eagerly anticipating a 'good shot' off of it, which I got Monday. Coaches and Catcher estimate 85-87 mph (it's where this kid normally sits) four seamer, barely knicked the bat and hit me hard, directly on the right clavicle. Only felt that something impacted the CP, sounded like a shot gun went off, but didn't feel ANYTHING underneath. I was impressed. I bought it for the clavicle protection, and it didn't disappoint! Catcher was sure I should be hurt, he asked me twice, but I literally didn't feel anything.

  8. Want to price a used Douglas plate cp
  9. Hello I had a West Vest Gold redone by Team Wendy. It has never been used since I had it retro fitted. Im asking $350 shipped Pay Pal Friends and Family
  10. ... and you better be on Ump-Attire.com buying a new CP!!! Really. $40. Forty Dollars and a few days of waiting on shipping it to you is all it takes to stop looking like a yutz, a schmuck or a doofus, and putting yourself at increased risk of injury. I was a catcher, and I used my ol' catcher's CP for my first year of umpiring... Forget it. Might as well wear a sheet of cardboard. Are you using a cheap softee-shell that you got from the local sporting goods store? Makes you look like a meatball? Pfffft... Donate it to the nearest tae-kwon-do or martial arts studio for use as a sparring vest, for all the good it'll do you in baseball. Own a DavisShield?... ... ... You may be beyond hope. That Champion Hardshell CP sitting there, offered by U-A, is the ideal entry-level CP. Hard plastic carapace, contoured body panels, segmented padded liner/vest, decent hardware, substantial shoulders, but no-where near as hulking as a WestVest nor as pricey as the better CP's. You don't need a sports car for the daily commute, right? You just need a simple, reliable hatchback or coupe for the daily drive to save up for and get the sports car someday! This is that commuter car. Heck, it even has a better harness than most of the other, more expensive CP's come stock equipped with! But don't stop there, I advise you... Get it, and with a few extra bucks, purchase a Flex-style harness for it. The Force3 Flex isn't bad; the All-Star DeltaFlex is good, but it only fits slim-to-average builds on a non-All-Star CP like this; but if you want to think serious, contact @Razzer and commission one of his ULFH "RayFlex" units. You can take it with you into that sports-car CP you'll one day get, and if you get it personalized (you should! Ray includes it in the cost), you're allowed to feel a little vain and self-serving at Christmas. And I better not catch you wearing Catchers' Shinguards either, mister! Those Champion shinguards offered on sale alongside the CP? Those will work swell. You'll actually be able to move in them without toeflaps and sideflaps flopping all out the bottom of your pants... Oh, and you'll actually be able to fit some good pants over them, because these are nowhere near as bulky as catchers' shinguards. Now, where is @gnhbua93 hiding so as to talk up the fact that U-A is offering the Force3 Defender V2 on sale, too?!!! PS- Go ahead and get the '15 All-Black Umpire shirt, especially at that price, if all you've got is that lone Navy shirt that some ol' codger in your association said "This 'ere navy one is all ya need!". Those of us with all the different styles of black umpire shirts (there are 4) won't mind. We'll work a game with you, no sweat!
  11. The Schutt XV Umpire Chest Protector is an advanced piece of protective gear for baseball umpires. For nearly a century, Schutt Sports has been committed to developing the most advanced protective gear in the game for players. Using the same technology, their umpire protective gear empowers umpires to focus and perform at the top of THEIR game! Features: Ventilation holes: 10mm ventilation holes maximize air circulation and the evaporation of excess moisture. Greater impact absorption and durability: Utilizing impact absorption technology from their most popular line of football shoulder pads, the XV chest protector is made of high density EVA foam for greater impact absorption and durability. Moisture and heat management system: The moisture and heat management system of this umpire chest protector allows airflow into and away from the body, allowing the skin to dry and the body to cool itself. Superior protection: Features caps to cover exposed gaps in the shoulder area, wider chest plate and a padded Y-back give you maximum coverage and extra protection. The design of this chest protector is form fitting. This chest protector also has a 4” removable extension which provides additional coverage for the stomach area and a t-hook attachment for a secure fit. One size fits most (Measures 13" from top of neck pad to bottom of chest plate. Shown with 4" pad extension, included.) Weight: Approximately 3 lbs
  12. Hello all - I'm selling a set of Wilson Gold shin guards. USED - Wilson Gold shin guards - 16" - 17" I also used these for one season in combination with the above chest protector. A few scuffs from tossing them on the floors of various dressing rooms, but still in great shape. $80 - Shipped
  13. I wanted some extra protection added to my Douglas CP (which I love, by the way), so I sent it to Jeff Cook in Houston to have it modified. I agreed with the reviews about the concern with the gap in the shoulder caps and the lack of protection along the sides. Jeff knew exactly what to do and got it back to me very quickly. Here's the finished product: It still fits great and maintains the low profile. If you have a Douglas and want to make a few tweaks, Jeff's your man!
  14. Anyone had any experience either with this specific CP or the brand? https://www.ump-attire.com/Baseball-Umpire-Equipment/Gear-Footwear/Chest-Protectors/XV_Schutt-XV-Umpire-Chest-Protector?id=601 Looks alright, but not a whole lot of chatter about it on the Intertubes. Probably not going to be investing in it myself, but it looks like it could be a pretty solid CP. I don't know why but it reminds me of something an ancient Roman legionnaire would wear...
  15. Just ordered the new Force 3 chest protector. Will give full report after I've worn it a couple of games.

  20. I previously purchased this Douglas 12in with Team Wendy Retro on here. It is a terrific Chest protector. I have 2 others that I am going to keep. I will ship this to you for $125.00 Friends and family. Please PM for photos, the site isn't allowing me to upload to this Topic Any questions please ask Chris
  21. I tried the search and was unsuccessful.... As I was poking around today I ran across this chest protector.It is reminiscent of the Davis Shield, but perhaps with more padding. It also seems to have a lot of vulnerabilities for balls finding gaps. Any one have any insight or experience?
  22. 12" Douglas chest protector with an All-Star Delta Flex harness. This is the "new" grey and blue model. The chest protector is in excellent condition and the harness is like new (never sewn or taped). This served as a spare/back up and is very lightly used. I also will include the original harness. $140 shipped to you as a PayPal Friends and Family transfer. Please PM with questions.
  23. Hey all ..... Well, .....I did it, and I gave it a shot, but ....... I MUCH prefer the Douglas padding compared to the TW padding. I had my Douglas TW retrofitted but as you can see, ... I don't really like it, so .......here it is up for grabs. This TW retrofit is only for the chest portion (not the shoulder cups). I wore the TW's w/ the Douglas about 6 times (at the most) Again, this is for the retrofit TW padding only that will fit a 15" Douglas. PM me, .... Paypal only (friends & family) $110 + shipping or, make a reasonable offer
