Force3 V2 Black Defender Hockey Style Umpire Helmet
I love it. I had an older umpire mask that was very heavy. I took several balls to the mask that really hurt. I was unsure about the bucket style. But I am very happy with the Force 3 Hockey style. It feels lighter and is very comfortable. I tried to wear a cap under it practicing but it's wasted effort and messed with vision. I wear two ball bags and can fit a 4 stitch hat in my bag. I wear it for plate meetings and in between meetings but do not mess with it for plays in the field or at the plate. I am apart of the Houston TASO chapter and they do not require a hat if you wear a bucket, but I wear it between innings just because I feel naked there just standing without it. I love this Force3 mask and feel I can see and move my head better. All the catchers are jealous.

It's an incredible umpire helmet. A little heavier than other bucket helmets but the protection is next level. The only thing is if you wear glasses, this helmet might not fit over them.
I really wanted to like this umpire helmet. However, to me it was too large in size and heavy. I found it having weight that pulled my head forward. Construction was outstanding...this is an excellent hockey style mask for those who can tolerate the weight.
