    How do you pack you're hard shell CP?

    Since I live out of my car, all my stuff gets thrown in the back of my traverse like a heathen until the next game.

    Suggestions for CP?

    If champion is your choice, I would get the 15in. And then cut the collar bone pad out so the plastic sits up at the base of your neck.

    Can’t see the picture on my phone.

    Did they leave room in the hem? Can’t remember what mine are hemmed at, but should be close.

    Get in your stance, the slight lean should help you last few ribs that are exposed. If not, I’ll take it off your hands and work you a deal on a 15” Douglas with t-hooks and gap protection.

    But still, no pictures of anyone wearing it...

    Which one?

    This is probably why my old doe skin WV pads don’t fit on the current dyna lite frame.

    Soooooo can someone take a picture wearing this monster? I’m real interested in the width problem some people are having. I’m a “skinny” 215. Meaning 34” waist and size 44 jacket. So I’ve had a hell of a time finding something that doesn’t look like I’m wearing a shipping crate on my chest. I’ve heavily modified a champion, but let’s face it, it’s only a matter of time before those cheap plates shatter.

    Chest Protector For Smaller Guys

    Just watch the shoulder caps on the champion, they are prone to breakage. As well as all the river holes from what I’ve seen. If you order it from Ump-attire inspect it completely before you wear it. If there are any defects UMPY-attire will take care of you.

    Chest Protector For Smaller Guys

    I’ve been curious about this as well, it’s hard finding a good protector that fits well, covers what it should, and doesn’t make my neck disappear. I really wish I had the time and resources to come up with something. I know @Razzer was in talks a few years ago about developing his own, but haven’t heard much since.

    Go with Ray’s harness. I’m 5’11” 200 and the delta flex straps aren’t long enough. I spend the entire game pulling the plastic plate down off my throat. As far as the t-hooks, you just take them off your existing harness and put them on the new harness. Easy-peazy.

    Champion CP cracked first two games

    I ordered a cobra and didn’t like the lack of movement in the arms, the double gap protection is a little over engineered, plus it looked just as bulky and cumbersome as a west vest. So instead of hassling with trying to return it, I drilled out the rivets that hold the padding to the caps, and the caps to the protector, then used Chicago screws to attach everything to the champion.

    I had a problem with the shoulder caps shipping cracked. From what I can tell, whatever factory the plates are made in, does not like to sharpen their punches and dies. Ump-attire will make it right. I had to do some mods to mine because the shoulders were too flimsy. I have a champion torso plates/padding and +pos cobra shoulder caps with the champion padding. All in all it feels pretty sturdy.
