Force3 Umpire Tights with Kevlar Thigh Protection
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: Force3 Umpire Tights with Kevlar Thigh Protection
The Gorge, OR
I loved these and I will definitely be wanting more than just one pair for the next season! There was a time this season where I asked myself why I bought them. Then I finally got drilled there. Now I am blessed to have them. Stay safe out there gentlemen! Make the right choice and try them out! They are a little thinner, but that makes it great for those hot days, Especially being gray.
Good product, tights are not sturdy enough as tore first time I wore in game situation. Pads are good and will protect from direct hit.
As others have said, these aren't exactly the most durable umpire tights on the market. In fact, calling them tights is probably the wrong definition, as they're more akin to long underwear than to compression tights. And, as noted in an earlier review, the stitching is a joke. Stitches tore in the legs and the waistband the very first time I tried them on. They fit, so it's not like I was trying to shove 10 pounds of stuff into a five pound bag. So, I'm still using them, and treating them VERY gingerly, but once they fall apart, which I suspect will be in the not-too-distant future, I'll likely pull out the thigh protectors (which by themselves are AWESOME), and use a Velcro-style Ace bandage to wrap them on my thighs beneath an actual pair of tights.
