Description

The Second Generation Force3 Defender Umpire Face Mask is the next generation of baseball umpire face masks. After many years of designing, prototyping and testing Force3 has developed a truly amazing technological creation!

After many years of designing, prototyping and testing, Force3 is proud to introduce the next generation of baseball and softball umpire face masks, the Force3 Defender. The Defender is truly an amazing technological creation that will revolutionize equipment forever.

Independent tests conducted by one of the four independent National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) approved testing facilities in the world, concluded that nothing comes close to the protection as the Defender. With virtually the same footprint of a traditional mask, the Defender’s patented technology reduces frontal impact forces in most cases.

G-Forces were also reduced with impressive results. Tests included impacts by 70mph softballs and 100mph baseballs.

I was apprehensive about this mask and how much it weighed. But after a few games behind the dish I do not even notice it. I love this mask! I feel very secure and comfortable wearing it.

I am ecstatic with my purchase of this umpire mask. Great field of vision, very sturdy, but not too heavy...

Yes, this umpire mask weighs a little more than what you may be used to, but the added protection that Force3 gives you more than makes up for the extra weight (which you'll get used to within a few games, anyways). There's a reason that this mask is showing up in high-level college ball and the pros. Add it to your bag and you'll wonder why you waited so long!
