We had to return this product.

The size of the shirt is so slight, just get the size small!

The guard covered his stomach instead of his chest.

I purchased this item for my son. He wears a Youth Medium size 8-10 in normal clothes...however when I looked up this item on Heart-gard website and it said he should order a youth small. I read the previous review here and went ahead and ordered my son a youth medium thinking it would be tight fitting like his UnderArmour shirts. It was too big and the chest plate was too low on him. Returned and got a youth small. Perfect fit! Here is the sizing info from the Markwort website. Youth Sizes: YXXS (Chest 27"), YXS (Chest 27.5"), YS (Chest 28"), YM (Chest 28"-30") YL (Chest 31"-33") YXL (Chest 34"-36") However, the same shirts, I found this sizing info which may help better:
(Sizing coordinates with weight:)XS (approximately 30-55 pounds)PS (approximately 55-80 pounds)S (approximately 80-125)M(approximately 125-150)L (approximately 150 and up)

After reading an article in the Readers Digest identifying the grim statistic that more youth athletes have died in youth baseball than in both youth hockey or football primarily due to pitchers being hit in the heart area with a line drive ball triggering cardiac arrest, I purchased this product immediately. My son pitches in both town and aau baseball and he wore this for the full season last year and swears he can't even tell he has it on.

It took me a long time to find the right size for my son and we finally got him a xx-small, he is 9 years old and pretty thin, he wears medium shirts and 9/10 clothing. If you want it to fit right you may need to go a lot smaller. Good luck.

Of all the sports out there, baseball happens to be one where young people's hearts are at risk from "heart shock" or sudden cardiac arrest. This shirt can make all the difference, absorbing the majority of any impact near the heart and protecting young lives. It is a small price to pay for some added peace of mind. It won't remove all risk from baseball but one risk that isn't acceptable to me, as a parent, is heart damage that could be easily prevented by using this shirt. It DOES NOT limit motion and kids get used to it quickly.

An added bonus - kids I know think they have the appearance of a 6 or 8 pack, a more developed chest, not a bad thing at all for guys who care about their appearance.

So, we are contemplating the idea of my 6 year old playing t-ball this year. The thing about it is that he has had 2 open-heart surgeries and has had his sternum wired shut twice. Also, his cardiologist had a patient die because he got hit in the chest, PLAYING T-BALL (you know they hit the ball so hard when they are in kindergarten!) So, this item may actually give my son the opportunity to experience something in his life that so many parents take for granted. We are not overprotective parents by any means (he started water skiing & wakeboarding when he was 4), and I see no reason why this product wouldn't provide the protection he needs. Thanks for making a product that will improve my son's quality of life!

Like other reviewers, this item arrived defective. The heart gard is positioned over the stomach, not over the heart as it is supposed to be.

Since there was no other alternative for us, I had to re-position the heart gard by taking it apart and re-sewing it on again to its correct position.

Shirt was appropriately sized - however the chest protector was stitched in too low and closer to abdominal region. Website pic shows shield directly on sternum unfortunately that is not what we received.

I do not recommend this shirt. I tried two different sizes for my son and neither fit him properly. The guard covered his stomach instead of his chest.
