The Force3 Ultimate Umpire Shin Guards are a high quality umpire shin guard made of premium materials including DuPont Kevlar, stainless steel rivets, and high-impact slimline composite buckles.

The uniqueness of this design is in its lower profile design that uses Kevlar inside the padding that reduces the need for bulkier and/or heavier padding. Therefore, of all lower-profile designs in a double-knee variety, consider this your most protective option.


  • Kevlar layer is laminated into the interior padding providing the best protection and lowest weight possible.
  • Slim profile provides conforming protection.
  • Optional comfort padding provides a cushioned barrier between your leg and the shin guard.
  • Vent holes make for great breathability and airflow while working your game.
  • Lightweight: approximately 3lbs
  • Three sizes: 14.5″, 16.5″ and 18.5"

Best shin guards for the money. Love the detachable pads, easy to wash and keep clean. The plastic clips are durable, don't rust as others metal ones have in the Florida humidity. Protection, value, and coverage factors are superior to other shin guards I've worn.

Awesome quality and very comfortable. Force 3 is at the top of the umpire equipment game. I prefer the plastic clips to the metal on other brands, no rust to worry about. If you wear mid-cut umpire plate shoes, go to the next lower size. I measured myself at 16", but the 14.5" set of shin guards were a much better fit.

According to the measurements, I should have worn the 16 1/2" set, but when I tried them on they were WAAAAAY too tall. They were fine while standing, but whenever I got into my set position as I do behind the plate, they pulled up and had an ungainly-looking 3" extension above my knee. It looked really weird. I opted to try the 14 1/2" pair, which are advertised as the SHORTEST available for baseball umpires, which is weird, because I'm, 5' 10", but these seem to fit fine. The video and some reviews mentioned how the pants tend to get stuck behind them, and that happened to me. As suggested, I moved the inner padding up an inch and it seems to have alleviated the problem. I do like the clips versus traditional buckles. They are very light and form-fitting so I think they will be great behind the plate.

Questions About This Product

Q: I am 5’1 and struggle with shin guards being way too high up. Would these work for me? My other shin guards go mid-thigh sometimes higher.
– Mindy Witt
To find the proper size shin guard, please take the measurement from the center of your knee cap down to where the shin guards will rest on your plate shoes. The 14.5-inch shin guards will probably be the best fit, close without going over. See our Fitting Room and this Crew How-To for more info!
