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.

Love this umpire mask. But not to impressed with the harness.

The weight of this umpire mask takes some getting used to. I always wore Titanium masks prior to the Force3 and I'm also getting used to having to wear this mask much tighter than my old masks. I'm going to keep wearing it for at least half of this season and then make my final judgement.

Questions About This Product

Q: Right now I have the Wilson pro helmet. Is this mask lighter or heavier than that? Also does this mask move when you get hit or stay still?
– Daryl Rogers
A: 

The Wilson Pro Titanium Helmet weighs 2lbs 3oz, while this Force3 V2 Defender mask weighs 1.8lbs.  With proper fitting, this mask will rest snug on your face while the Shock Suspension System (S3) reduces the impact force applied to you head when you get hit. We offer free returns to those in the contiguous U.S. so there is no risk to see if this mask works for you.
