Wilson MLB Black Dyna-Lite Aluminum Umpire Mask with Black and Grey Wrap Around
Official 2-Minute Review: Wilson MLB Dyna-Lite Aluminum Mask with Wrap Around Pads
We wrap our heads around this protective Wilson traditional umpire mask featuring Wrap Around padding.
Indian Trail, NC
I use the Wilson Dyna-Lite Aluminum umpire mask with memory foam pads and wanted to buy another mask as a backup. Originally I was just going to buy the cheapest mask I could buy, but decided to buy another mask with the same frame (because I love it so much). I decided I'd get this one with the wrap around pads for variety in both look and feel. I couldn't be happier as I know this mask won't be just a backup, but rather I will be rotating these masks from now on (and will always have the other as a spare if needed). I originally thought I'd prefer the all black look, but I'm really liking the look of the mask with these pads.
I bought this umpire mask new at the start of the 2019 season. I am 1 month into my 3rd season with this mask. I have taken a handful of shots off this mask over the past couple of years but went to do a plate last night and noticed the welds are broken in at least 6 places. Two of the breaks are in the middle of a bar and not on the junctions between 2 bars. Completely useless and unsafe to wear now. I love the lightweight mask and how it fits but its longevity and durability are questionable at best. This is the second Wilson aluminum umpire mask I have had to replace due to broken welds and Wilson will not stand by their product as I contacted them regarding the first mask that broke after a couple of seasons.
Light, strong, perfect fit.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Will a 6 stitch cap fit under this mask?|
– Patrick Ford
A 6-stitch cap will fit under this mask. However, we highly recommend a 4-stitch cap for plate work. Reduce the chance of force being transferred from an impact through the bars of a facemask to brim of your cap, directly to the forehead.– Brandon Lawson
