Original West Vest Chest Protector
The "Original" West Vest chest protector has interconnecting plates that make the vest accommodate more than one umpire. By reconfiguring the plates a person who is 5'7" can wear the same vest as a larger frame 6'4" umpire. There are Major League Umpires who have worn this vest for their entire careers in the Major Leagues...Some for more than ten years. This chest protector has open cell foam covered by high density plastic that has been tested on professional football players for strength and durability. This protector is available at a great price.
