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 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 this Force3 mask. I took two foul ball shots in the mask barely felt the impact. Also, the downside is that this mask made my neck hurt a lot when I umpire USA Softball tournaments to High School Softball Freshmen and JV games.

I have used the Force 3 Umpire Mask since 2017. I highly recommend it. Although it's a bit heavier than most masks, the weight is distributed well. The protection is second to none. I do not plan to go back to a conventional mask.

Good umpire mask. Comfortable and very safe. Took some good shots without any trouble. A little heavy, so keep it tight.

Questions About This Product

Q: Will other mask pads like Team Wendy or Wilson memory foam fit the Force3 mask?
– Kelly Mcnary
A: 

The unique frame design of Force3 requires certain Velcro strap locations that only Force3 pads can adhere to. Team Wendy and Wilson replacement pads Velcro straps will not work around the spring suspension locations of the Force3 mask.
