Mizuno Youth Samurai G4 Catcher's Helmet
Mizuno Youth Samurai G3 Catcher's Chest Protector
Mizuno Youth Samurai G3 Catcher's Leg Guards
Mizuno Samurai 4 Catcher's Wheel Bag
I bought the Samurai G4 Combo becauce I was looking for a quality product that would offer longevity and protection for my 9 year old son who is determined to be a catcher. Having played the position throughout High School and into college I know the importance of quality gear. I still own the same Mizuno cathcers glove I used in HS and College 20 years ago. The samurai looks great and more importantly offers ALOT of protection. The shoulder caps and lower shield are adjustable/removeable and the shin gaurds fit like a glove once adjusted so that they do not move around and cause discomfort for my kid. I would recommend this setup without a doubt and the bag was a great bonus and fits all of my sons equipment for catching, fielding and hitting.Review by Coach Chris (Posted on 3/1/14)
Order this for my 9 year old son. He has wanted this gear for over a year now and surprised him for great grades and great team work. Overall quality and fit is great! Will definitely get good use out of it and won't have to worry about anything wearing out to quickly.Review by Catcher's MOM (Posted on 2/7/14)
Loved the color options, especially in the helmet and bag.
We use Mizuno products exclusively for our softball team, I wish Mizuno would offer reconditioning services, they are good for about two years of hard use.Review by coach bill (Posted on 9/9/13)
Went to the local Sports Authority, Dick's and Play it again. I think "you get what you pay for" rings true on the set, the bag is just a complete bonus!Review by Happy Parent (Posted on 6/18/13)
The set has nice metal hardware, feels very substantial, but isn't ridiculously over the top. The youth package fits my 4'11" 8 year old well (90 lbs) and he will get at least a solid year to two out of the package. The gear runs 1/2 size bigger than Wilson, L-Slugger and Easton youth which made it the best choice for my son. The legs and helmet are top notch, the chest protector is good but seems to be a "fit" right now and won't last sizing wise for as many years as the the rest of the package. The bag is big enough for all the gear plus mitt, bat, gloves etc; nice that it has wheels and full length side pockets as well. Please note that the helmet runs a 1/4 hat size larger than most youth, again, providing the bigger set that was needed.
Paying the extra $80 over some of the other box sets is well worth it quality and size wise, as said, the bag is a great bonus.
Lastly, Homerunmonkey shipped the Monday afternoon I had ordered on and we had the gear that same week in time for some Saturday ball.
Quality catcher's gear at a great price. Love the color options and combos.Review by Coach Dad (Posted on 5/28/13)
My son LOVED the catcher's gear. We liked the fact the you can customize the bundle (colors). I couldn't really get that at the other websites. The only thing I would ask Homerun Monkey to do is to make it possible to see the helmets in different colors. Great price and great quality.Review by Mai (Posted on 3/5/13)
