Description

The Second Generation Force3 Defender Umpire Face Mask is the next generation of baseball umpire face masks.

After many years of designing, prototyping and testing, Force3 is proud to introduce the next generation of baseball and softball umpire face masks, the Force3 Defender. The Defender is truly an amazing technological creation that will revolutionize equipment forever.

Independent tests conducted by one of the four independent National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) approved testing facilities in the world, concluded that nothing comes close to the protection as the Defender. With virtually the same footprint of a traditional mask, the Defender’s patented technology reduces frontal impact forces in most cases.

G-Forces were also reduced with impressive results. Tests included impacts by 70mph softballs and 100mph baseballs.

Love this umpire mask. It is very reassuring knowing you have on a great mask. I took a foul to the side and didn't feel anything.

It took a little getting used to in terms of view, but no issues. It feels like it sits higher than I am used to but may need some adjustment or a different hat. I did two games this weekend with my new mask and it was great. I didn't try out the springs, thankfully. Comfortable and slight additional weight wasn't noticeable. This will be my go-to for upper-level games for sure.

Questions About This Product

Q: Right now I have the Wilson pro helmet. Is this mask lighter or heavier than that? Also does this mask move when you get hit or stay still?
– Daryl Rogers
A: 

The Wilson Pro Titanium Helmet weighs 2lbs 3oz, while this Force3 V2 Defender mask weighs 1.8lbs.  With proper fitting, this mask will rest snug on your face while the Shock Suspension System (S3) reduces the impact force applied to you head when you get hit. We offer free returns to those in the contiguous U.S. so there is no risk to see if this mask works for you.
