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

Questions About This Product

Q: What is the difference between the Force3 Defender V2 and the Defender V1?
- Lou Scatorchia
A: The Force3 Defender V2 Umpire Mask has a 3 spring system, which reduces overall weight (a good thing), whereas the V1 had a 4 spring system. The V2 also has a leather insert on the mask pads.

After 15 years of using an umpire mask, I went to the hockey style helmet a few years ago. However, due to visibility issues I decided to ditch the bucket and sprung for the Defender mask. I absolutely love it. Definitely five stars. Unlike another reviewer, I actually think this is very lightweight. I love the field of vision and I also bought a titanium throat cage which attaches to protect the adam's apple. It was worth the investment for me. I couldn't be more pleased with the Force3.

Recent purchase. Happy so far. Heard comments about the weight of the mask, but I weighed it against the Honig's mask I use and it was only something like 4-5 ounces heavier. The bars are smaller in diameter and I am liking the field of vision it provides. I have taken one foul ball off the mask, it wasn't a really hard shot, but nevertheless, I felt nothing. Serioulsy, barely felt a thing. Very satisfied so far.

I purchased this umpire mask thinking it would be great to absorb some impact. The concept is great, but the weight of the mask was significantly heavier than any other mask. It actually started to bother my neck in just a few minutes. I ended up sending it back. I really wanted to love the mask, but the weight made it impossible to use.
