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.

Absolutely love the Force3 V2 umpire mask, the hype was right. I've only worn it for 2 games and it fits perfectly haven't taken a shot yet. Force3 is the best. Another great product from a great company.

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.

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.
