Our 8 year old son plays in our city's Dixie League and loves to catch. We wanted to upgrade his equipment from a basic All-Star set. This is a great set. We did his measurements and he is clearly the "youth" size. The helmet is well padded and fits well. The shin guards are great having triple knee pads, wrapping around the shin, ankle protector flaps, a long foot flap and the hooks are properly designed so the shin guards straps stay on when getting up and down during catching.
My only complaint is that the chest protector is quite large for being considered a youth size. But is does have great padding. It's almost as if its really a intermediate size being sold accidentally as a youth size with the wrong label. We have the back lower horizontal strap tightened all the way and even brought the plastic buckles through the strap loops to make it tighter. We have the vertical strap tightened all the way and even made a "twist over itself" in the upper horizontal component to tighten and raise the chest protector more. Even with these modifications it's a little loose.
Overall a great set and the color selections are great. He has navy and silver and he is the best looking catcher out there. His team mates call him "Ironman" because he looks so cool.
The only protection that we added was the EvoShield wrist guard. We us this as a forearm protector for his left forearm. This is a neat product. Its a neoprene sleeve with a pocket in it. In the pocket you place an "air activated" plastic shield that molds and gets hard to the shape of the arm.
