Force3 Defender Umpire Throat Guard
From the picture on the website, I was concerned that the Force3 throat guard might come down so far below the mask that it might look goofy or be distracting. But when I got it attached to my Force3 V2 Defender mask, there was no problem. Perfect fit with the Force3 mask, looks great, good integrated feel without "dangle distraction" and I feel much more secure than with other throat protectors. My mask is black and the black colored throat protector is a perfect match.
I've always used a throat protector and ordered this because it matches the mask and looks good (unique). Heavier than others but I can't say I noticed it really. Hoping a shot to it doesn't cause significant damage as others have indicated since it doesn't feel extremely sturdy but still want the protection.

Out of pride I almost removed the throat guard. I'm glad I didn't. Same day I took a high and inside foul tip directly off the throat guard. It worked like a charm. My only concern was it completely deformed the throat guard. I was able to bend it back into shape but wondered how many more this one can take.
