Force3 V2 Silver Defender Umpire Mask with Black
Official Review: Force3 V2 Defender Umpire Masks
Ty takes you behind the plate and shows you the spring loaded technology of the Force3 V2 Defender Umpire Mask.
Great umpire mask! My only recommendation is to extend the protection at the very top of the mask, just like the Diamond iX3 - to add just a bit more protection.
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
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.
