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!

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 patent pending technology reduces the Severity Index of most impacts by up to 50% in most cases.

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


  • Lightweight tubular chrome alloy
  • Patent pending dual mask system with the Shock Suspension System (S3)
  • 3-Spring Second Generation design
  • Single bar construction for optimal view
  • Unequal Kevlar lined padding
  • Lower pad lined on the inside with full grain leather
  • 4 different high-impact foam padding construction with special memory comfort foam on chin and sides
  • Powder coated for superior finish
  • Includes one-size-fits-all harness made of heavy duty nylon with stretch elastic providing extra comfort
  • Weighs less than 29oz.
  • Defender by Force3

Extended Limited Lifetime Warranty offered by Force3. Details included with product when purchased.

NOCSAE® does not have umpire mask standards, and these masks have not been certified as compliant with any NOCSAE® standard.

Took a straight back foul tip from an 18-U softball travel pitcher that hits 70. Didn't feel a thing. When asked by all concerned, I just said: "I feel great and am ordering this mask for my kids." True Story.

After taking a shot to the forehead while in my Diamond titanium mask and suffering a mild concussion, I knew it was time to examine my protection. This mask is definitely an adjustment to wear but you quickly adapt. The only negative is the weight. Easy for a single game but rough on those multiple game days. Haven't been hit yet but I'm confident this mask will do the job.

This umpire mask is a life saver. The weight is a negative but overall an amazing mask. Add the sun visor and you have a mask that you won't regret.
