I love this Force3 mask. I took two foul ball shots in the mask barely felt the impact. Also, the downside is that this mask made my neck hurt a lot when I umpire USA Softball tournaments to High School Softball Freshmen and JV games.
I have used the Force 3 Umpire Mask since 2017. I highly recommend it. Although it's a bit heavier than most masks, the weight is distributed well. The protection is second to none. I do not plan to go back to a conventional mask.
Good umpire mask. Comfortable and very safe. Took some good shots without any trouble. A little heavy, so keep it tight.
