Force3 V2 Silver Defender Umpire Mask with Black
Scott's Choice: Force3 Defender Umpire Mask
This was my first full season using this umpire mask and I will never go back to the "traditional" style again. Yes, this mask weighs a little more, but the first time that you take a direct shot wearing it, you will appreciate the mask enough that the extra weight won't bother you again. Baseballs just seemed to find their way to me this season and I took probably six direct hits that, with my previous masks, would have taken me out of games and likely been concussions. With the Force3, I stayed in games and had only very minimal side effects. I've recommended the Force3 to dozens of umpires this season and will continue to do so.
Great piece of umpire equipment. Won't ever go back to a conventional mask.

Feels heavier in the hand but don't really notice the difference when on my head. I really like this umpire mask.
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
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.
