I purchased this as a gift for my 12 year old son who catches a lot on his travel ball team. It just came today 8 weeks to the day we ordered it and it looks great. I was on the fence as to whether I should get the youth size or the adult size as I measured his head out to almost 6 7/8. After speaking with the people at All Star we went with the adult size and it adjusted down perfectly. He's looking forward to using it this weekend in our wood bat tournament.
