Force3 Defender Umpire Throat Guard
Crew How-To: Properly Attach Your Umpire Throat Guard
Ty shows you how to correctly attach your throat guard to your umpire mask for maximum protection.
Staten Island, NY
I was using a different throat guard with my Force3 mask and a bouncing foul ball got underneath and hit me in the throat. I decided to switch to this guard and I can see that this is going to give me much better protection. It was made for this mask and it's going to be much harder for a ball to get underneath now. Well worth it. Safety is everything.
I've used this for several weeks and I am very pleased and am glad that I have it to protect my throat. I would recommend that you have one like this for your Force3 umpire mask.
From the picture on the website, I was concerned that the Force3 throat guard might come down so far below the mask that it might look goofy or be distracting. But when I got it attached to my Force3 V2 Defender mask, there was no problem. Perfect fit with the Force3 mask, looks great, good integrated feel without "dangle distraction" and I feel much more secure than with other throat protectors. My mask is black and the black colored throat protector is a perfect match.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||If hit by a baseball, does the top of the throat guard hit the bottom suspension system of the Force3 V2 traditional umpire mask?|

If you have the throat positioned correctly, it will hang down below the suspension and will not interfere.– Ty Unthank
