Building off feedback from the 2nd generation Force3 Ultimate Umpire Chest Protector, the V3 offers the same great low-profile and customizable features of the V2 plus two new features to reduce impact at higher velocity.

    Just over 1/2” thick, the UNEQUAL EXO system is made with DuPont™ Kevlar®, thus providing the best combination of low-profile protection
  • Durable, Breathable, Hand Washable Neoprene Cover
  • High-grade Space Airflow System Fabric Backing
    Allows for maximum comfort and airflow in warmer weather.
  • Comfort Harness
    3 center layers of air flow fabric, open cell foam and neoprene plus stronger elastic keeps the chest protector snug to the body and in place

UNEQUAL’s patented composite made with military grade DuPont Kevlar® handles the blunt force trauma from a 90+ mph fastball or a foul ball. Kevlar® has been used by law enforcement and the military for decades. Protective gear incorporating UNEQUAL’s patented composite made with Kevlar® is currently being worn to protect professional and amateur athletes including NFL and NHL players. This protector was fully designed, in conjunction with UNEQUAL Technologies, by umpires for umpires. No corners were cut and the highest grade materials are used for every part of the protector.

Took a bit of getting used to, but now that I've worn it for a few games, I really do enjoy the lightness of it, and how much cooler I feel on hot days. Happy that I invested in it, and look forward to the protection it provides over my old umpire chest protector.

In my opinion, THE BEST UMPIRE CHEST PROTECTOR ON THE MARKET! I started out with the Champro, then swapped to the West Vest. Loved the protection of the Wilson West Vest, until I found the love of my life FORCE 3 V3 it’s so slim fitting. You don’t get that bulky look like the others. You get the protection of the hardshell but the feel and look of a softshell. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!!! I’m just going to tell you, once you buy anything FORCE 3, you will be swapping everything to them from mask to shin guards! And don’t forget to buy the Force 3 bags to go with them! You will thank me later!

I absolutely love my new Force3 chest protector. Lightweight and has many adjustments to fit you perfectly. Wore it in 95-degree heat and it allows you to breathe. Much better than my West Vest, which I loved. I read that some have issues with the clips. My suggestion is to reach for it under the chest protector, not across the outside. Zero issues. Then, the second one is a piece of cake. I recommend this to anyone doing upper-level baseball. You don't feel a thing. There is also excellent protection around the neck area with the adjustable pad. Just buy it...although mine was a gift :-)

Questions About This Product

Q: I am 5'6" and about 175 lbs with a 42" chest. Will this fit me ok? I prefer short protectors.
– David Crooks

This Force3 Umpire Chest Protector allows for multiple adjustments making it a one size fits most. You are able to remove the abdomen protection, shortening the chest protector to 12" in length. Remember with FREE Returns, there is no risk of purchasing to see if this will work for you.
