Diamond iX3 Aluminum Umpire Mask with Quik-Dry
I purchased three of these for the Little League umpires in our league. They are nice and light. Maybe not ideal pads for the everyday umpire but they work well for what we need.
Great, lightweight umpire mask! I needed to make a number of adjustments with the harness so I could easily flip the mask without pulling my hat off. Overall . . . good value!
This umpire mask is lightweight and protects well and offers good vision. Was not happy with the pads so I replaced them. Overall good starter mask at a good price point.
