Finding the Color Gear You Need

Basically every model of catchers gear being sold today has the "standard" colors available.

You know, colors like gray, black, and even blue. 



Yet many times, catchers need gear that match the color of their team. 

And many teams have colors that are not the standard gray, black and blue that we just mentioned!

Understandably, this leads many players and parents to look for specific colors of catcher’s gear. 

And it's not always easy to find the color you need.

That's why we wrote this article - to help our readers by making it simple to find the different catcher's gear color options available.

How We Selected Our Picks

We canvassed the market to identify NOCSAE-approved gear that is being manufactured in different colors, then organized those selections based on available colors. 

In this post you will see our “preferred pick” followed by a “runner up” pick by color, as well as a list of other options for each color. 

Our preferred and runner up picks typically follow picks you will find in our “best of” posts on the site, meaning they were chosen based on a combination of safety, cost, and quality. 

We’d encourage you to read more of the posts on this site in order to get a better understanding of the pro’s and con’s of specific models mentioned in this post. 

Also, our picks below show the complete catcher’s gear set - meaning, it contains a catcher’s helmet, chest protector and leg guards. 

Many times people look for a specific color of chest protector or helmet, for example, while keeping the other pieces of their gear a standard black, blue or gray. We get that.

If you don’t need a complete set, then we suggest using our picks as a starting point to understand which models contain the color you need, then finding the specific piece of equipment you need from there. 

Secondary Colors of Catcher’s Gear



When we refer to “Secondary Colors”, we are talking about any colors that aren’t the black, gray and blue mentioned above. These are common colors sold in practically every catcher’s gear model on the market.

Keep reading to see our recommendations and other available options organized by the color of gear. 

Red Catcher’s Gear

For Baseball catchers, our top choice for red catcher’s gear is the All Star System7 Axis Pro set. This is the top of the line model from All-Star, and a perennial front runner in many of our “best of” posts. Also, All Star has an excellent reputation for making quality goods, and their gear is used by many in the NCAA ranks and above.

Our runner-up choice for Baseball catcher’s gear that comes in red is the Easton Elite X set. Elite X gear is high-quality and comfortable, and it’s actually more affordable than Eason’s Pro X lineup.

For Fastpitch Softball catchers, our top pick for red gear is Jen Schro’s The Very Best. This unique and durable gear is Easton’s newest offering for Softball catchers. The gear was engineered specifically for females and is premium level in every sense of the word.

All Star’s Vela Pro set (two-tone) is our runner up choice for Fastpitch players needing red catchers gear. Its chest protector and leg guards are lightweight yet provide excellent protection.

Our runner-up pick is the Mizuno Samurai set. Samurai gear has recently been re-designed, and the new design comes in a sharp-looking green/black/gray pattern.

For Fastpitch Softball catchers, our top recommendation for green gear is - like our pick for red - Jen Schro’s The Very Best. It has a solid color design with a subtle amount of white added. It looks good.

White Catcher’s Gear

White catchers gear always looks good in my opinion. It has a classy look behind the plate. 

For white gear, our top pick for Baseball is the Rawlings Adult Velo 2.0. This set scores high marks for breathability and ventilation, as well as flexibility. Though the helmet is solid white, the rest of the gear has a gray/white pattern.

The runner-up choice for Baseball catchers is the Wilson C1K set. This is a good set from the world renowned Wilson brand. However, you should be aware that the color arrangement is more silver than white.

Coming in again at first place for Fastpitch catchers is Jen Schro’s The Very Best. The white gear looks incredible, with some subtle black added in for contrast. We are big fans of this one.

Yellow Catcher’s Gear

Yellow is another secondary color used by many teams. Good news is that there is some yellow catcher’s gear on the market. 

Our top yellow gear pick for Baseball is the All-Star System7 Axis Elite Travel Team set. You have two options in this set - one that has a yellow and green pattern, and one that has a more neutral yellow and gray pattern. Either way, System 7 Axis gear is some of the best catcher’s gear on the planet, so you can’t go wrong there.

Check Price on Amazon

Mizuno Samurai is our runner-up pick for Baseball catchers in need of yellow catchers equipment. Like other colors of Samurai gear, the yellow appears in the outline of the gear. It is predominantly black and gray.

For Fastpitch Softball backstops in need of yellow gear, our pick is Mizuno Samurai Womens. Like its Baseball counterpart, the Softball version of Samurai gear only displays the yellow as an outline with gray featuring prominently. 

Check Price on Amazon

We do not have a runner-up pick for Fastpitch - nor do we have other options for Baseball - because there are few models of yellow catchers gear currently on the market.

Gold Catcher’s Gear

Our next color is a close companion of yellow. While not much, there is some distinctly gold catcher’s gear on the market. 

The top choice for Baseball catchers is the All-Star Adult System 7 Axis Pro set.This high-quality gear comes in a nice gold and black two tone pattern.

Check Price on Amazon

Our runner-up pick for gold gear for Baseball is Easton’s Elite X. It looks somewhat similar to the above System 7 Axis Pro set, yet sells at a lower price point. 

Click for Price at Amazon

Unfortunately we do not have specific recommendations for Fastpitch catchers in need of catcher’s equipment in gold, as we haven’t found any. Our recommendation would be to choose a neutral color (ie, black or gray catcher’s gear) or consider the yellow version of the Mizuno Samurai Women’s gear if you can make that color work.  

Purple Catcher’s Gear

Fortunately there is more purple catchers gear on the market than there is yellow or gold! 

For Baseball, our top choice is Easton’s Elite X set. It is predominantly purple with some strategically placed silver throughout. We think it looks really sharp.

Check Price on Amazon

The runner-up choice for Baseball catchers needing purple gear is the Rawlings Velo 2.0 set. It's interlaced with silver and has some white in it, though purple is the predominant color.

Click for Price at Amazon

Our top purple choice for Fastpitch Softball catchers is Jen Schro's The Very Best. This model - a regular front runner - sports a shiny purple on the helmet, chest protector and leg guards interlaced with a small amount of white. 

Check Price on Amazon

Our runner up pick for Softball catchers needing purple gear is the All-Star Vela Pro. Like the Jen Schro model, Vela gear is also high-quality. The purple in this gear shines and has some silver (and a small amount of white) added into the pattern.

Maroon Catcher’s Gear

All-Star, Mizuno and Easton are some of the major brands that make maroon catcher’s gear. Our top pick for Baseball catchers is the All-Star System 7 Axis Pro set. Axis gear, a favorite of many, sells a maroon model of gear that is interlaced with gray and a touch of white on the logo.

Check Price on Amazon

Easton Elite X is our runner-up maroon pick for Baseball. It has some similarities in look to the Axis gear, though its secondary color is more silver than gray.

For Fastpitch Softball catchers, our top choice for maroon catchers gear is - once again - Jen Schro’s The Very Best. In addition to being a great set, it is available in a variety of colors, which is a great feature. The maroon model has a small amount of white tastefully designed in, similar to the other colors they feature.

All-Star System 7 Pro

Mizuno Samurai Youth Baseball

Pink Catcher’s Gear

We have been unable to find any pink catcher’s gear sets being manufactured by brands currently. 

There is a bit of a caveat to that, actually. Some individual pieces of catcher’s gear are sold in pink. For example, the AiR Maxx 2966 helmet from Schutt comes in pink. 

In addition, you may be able to find older Softball gear (or some that’s been specifically customized in the past) for sale on eBay. If you are really wanting pink equipment, then it’s at least worth the time to check there.

Also, some equipment manufactures allow you to customize their equipment, such as All-Star. You can take this approach and see if they allow pink customization. 

Camo Catcher’s Gear

We know quite a few catcher’s that love the camo look. If that’s you, then your best bet is to go with the All-Star Adult System7 Axis Camo Pro set.

As you know if you’ve been reading along in this post, Axis gear is some of the best catcher’s gear on the market. The fact that they also make camo patterned gear is an added bonus.

Additionally, Axis gear comes in a few different colors. Though gray is the dominant color in this gear, typically black, blue or red camo interlaced with the gray are available.

Check Price on Amazon

Outside of the Axis set, we know that Diamond manufactures camo chest protectors and leg guards (the iX5 version). Also, at one time the Easton M10 chest protector came in camouflage option. Both are worth checking out if you’re not interested in the Axis model. 

American Flag (AKA red white and blue) Catcher’s Gear

Some US based catchers may be interested in using american flag catcher’s gear (also referred to as red, white and blue catcher’s gear). 

The good news is that it exists and you have a few options to choose from.

Our top pick for Baseball catchers is the All-Star Adult System7 Axis Pro set. On this set, red, white and blue feature prominently. The ab section of the chest protector features the stars on the blue background, making it clear that it’s modeled after the flag. It looks sweet.

Check Price on Amazon

The runner-up pick for Baseball is the Wilson C1K set. Though not specifically modeled off of the US flag, it’s red, blue and gray (with some white) give it a theme that’s distinctly American.

Click for Price at Amazon

For Fastpitch catchers, Jen Schro’s The Very Best features a great American Flag-themed option. The white is the primary color on this model, with the stars prominent on the chest protector and red and blue added throughout. 

Check Price on Amazon

Similar to our runner-up pick for Baseball, we also recommend Wilson C1K as the runner-up choice for Fastpitch catchers needing American Flag catcher’s equipment.  

Click for Price at Amazon

Catchers can also check out Rawlings Velo 2.0 gear and Louisville Slugger Youth PG Series 5 gear. Though they're mostly a navy blue and red pattern, they give off that American Flag feel. 

In Closing...

Hopefully this post provided you with some helpful guidance in terms of secondary colors of catcher’s gear that you might need. 

There is a ton of gear out there, so it’s useful to separate these from the models that only come in the standard black, gray and blue.

If you were unable to find a specific color - or if one of the models we linked to were out of stock for the color needed - then we recommended searching the inventory on eBay. They tend to have a good amount of catcher's gear in stock at any one time.
