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 love the look and feel of my Force3 Defender umpire mask. The black cage with tan pads is a great look. The memory foam pads conform to my face for a snug fit. It is heavier than my Wilson Titanium Mask, but the safety features for reduced impact is a strong selling point. The mask bag is top of the line. Force3 gear is top of the line.

Although the weight of the mask is greater than some other high-end masks, it is not a big deal in my opinion. I took a fastball in the low 90s off this and did not feel a thing. I don't know why everyone is not wearing this mask.

Love the feel and view of of this Force3 Umpire Mask. Took a hopper over catcher third time wearing it and didn't feel a thing. Heard the shock system work though. Still have a nice lump on elbow 3 days later from same pitcher later that game. Would definitely recommend.

Questions About This Product

Q: Can the pads be switched out for Team Wendy?
– Neal Phadnis
A: 

It is recommended to only use the Force3 pads on the Defender Masks. While the Team Wendy Pads may fit on the Force3 Defender frame, they will not perform like the stock pads. The Force3 pads have additional material that wraps around the frame, providing protection from the springs upon impact.
