This is a nice catchers helmet but one of the top clips that holds the straps on the back of the helmet broke and there is not a replacement clip. I contacted Mizuno and they sent me a replacement clip that took 3 weeks to arrive and was a large clip that was not what I asked for. They sent me more large clips and told me this was all they had for replacement clips. You can purchase clips for any other brand catchers helmet online or at a store. If you buy this helmet when a top clip breaks you will have to go out and purchase another helmet. The helmet is not worth it.
I bought this for my daughter during her first season and she figured out that she likes being a catcher (proud dad was a catcher also). After the remaining games (5) and practices plus nonstop training (3-4 times a week) and half way through the second season (4 games) for a total of 8 months of pretty solid use, this helmet has so far held up beautifully. We have been working on flipping it off to get the ball, has had several foul tips and pitches to the mask and barley a blemish.
