Diamond iX3 Aluminum Umpire Mask with Quik-Dry
Love these masks. This is the second one I've owned in 15 yrs of umpiring. Arrived in New Zealand on time as expected. Great service.
This mask is very light, which makes it great for a weekend full of games in the Texas heat. The pads do take some time to get used to, and would recommend replacing the stock pads that come with the mask. The harness did take some time to adjust, but the mask over all fits well and does the job.
Outstanding umpire mask. Was hit in the upper part in the mask and felt nothing
