Force3 V2 Defender Umpire Mask with Tan
Scott's Choice: Force3 Defender Umpire Mask
This umpire mask has been very good for protection purposes. Force3 does a great job with their field equipment. You may need to keep the Force3 harness on the mask however because the mask won't perform as well with a different harness. The Force3 harness doesn't always lay flat depending on your head size but Force3 recommends their harness only.

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.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Can the pads be switched out for Team Wendy?|
– Neal Phadnis
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.– Scott Kennedy
