The best catchers are the ones who use their gear to protect themselves and take their natural skills to the next level. Like a great glove, a high-end catcher's chest protector can do its basic job and then some, complimenting your game and improving it with advanced technologies, materials, and designs.
Your chest protector is your central piece of armor behind the plate, since it covers the widest area on your body, and besides your glove, gets hit with the most pitches. There are many options for players of all ages and skill levels, and chest protectors can range greatly in design, materials, comfort, durability, and performance features. When browsing through our selection, you need to find the chest protector that fits your skills, playing style, and budget, since in most instances, the most expensive chest protector is not the "best" or the best for your game.
Like shopping for any protective gear, you need to find the perfect balance between safety and playability, since you want to be protected, but you never want your gear holding you back or inhibiting your game. No matter what your age or skill level, you need a chest protector that features great durability, strength, comfort, safety, and performance technology. After all, your team relies on you to do you job, so you need to rely on your chest protector to perform every time, every game.
