Force3 V2 Compression Umpire Tights with Kevlar Thigh Protection
Official 2-Minute Review: Force3 V2 Umpire Tights with Kevlar Thigh Protection
Ty takes you behind the plate with these Force3 Umpire Tights with built-in Kevlar thigh protection for baseball & softball umpires.
Unfortunately I bought these and I can't use them. The pads are flimsy and will not take a decent hit. The waistband is to tight even though I bought a size bigger and the cup placement is off to the point that if I wear them like they are meant to be I will not be protected. I would not buy these again that's for sure.

This is the saddest review I've ever written. I loved the original Force3 undergarment, it has its shortcomings, but not as many as the second iteration. The waistband is too small and the cup location too close to the waistband and needs to be worn below my hips to put the cup in the right place. This is a domino effect that renders all of the pluses for the new garment meaningless. If you have the original, don't buy this one, you'll be disappointed.
These work like they should for compression tights, but the sizing is a little off. If I order again I will get a size up.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Can a Nutty Buddy protective cup fit in these tights?|
– Nick Rodriguez
The elongated shape of the Nutty Buddy cups in combination with a cup pocket other than the 3-part Nutty Buddy system will position the cup in an improper position for your best protection. Diamond MMA and Shock Doctor cups will fit well in these tights.– Brandon Lawson
