I bought this for my 13 year old daughter that is playing middle school ball, she loves it. A couple of foul balls have come back and hit her mask, and she said she didn't feel anything.
Fits well, love texture!!!
I bought this for my daughter who plays 14U. She loves the look and feel of the exterior. She likes the padding as she feels it gives her much more protection from foul balls off the helmet.
Perfect fit and great support
I bought this for my 12y.o. son who has a big head. The youth masks don't fit him well, so we went with the bigger size. He loves it. Easy to put on and take off. Lots of visibility and is comfortable.
I decided to take a long time to evaluate this helmet. Bought in May of 2018, so used over 2 full little league seasons and two travel seasons. All I can say is wow. My son love this helmet. He catches for multiple kids throwing over 70 mph and has taken numerous foul ball tips t the mask/helmet. He says they are barely feels the impact. Makes him super confident and that is a big deal for a catcher. We also have the matching chest protector and shin guards which are just as good. Only issue is the inside padding whee the back plate of the helmet meets the main portion is starting to fall apart. But after 2 full years of heavy use I'm ok with that. Get this gear.
Mizuno Samurai G4 Catchers Helmet
One of the best catchers masks I have ever purchased. The interior padding not only protects but also wicks away sweat. My son is absolutely in love with this mask.
