Force3 Umpire Tights with Kevlar Thigh Protection
Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Great product. Love mine. Comfortable to wear, lightweight. The Kevlar disc is easy to take in and out of the pouch. As the game goes on, it actually forms to your leg. Previously, I took a foul ball to the inside of my leg...not the protection is exactly in the spot it is needed most. There is a cup holder as well for added protection.
I love wearing these. The Kevlar adds great protection to area that is exposed and very painful to hit in.

I really like my Force3 umpire tight. The floating cup pouch positions the cup so that it causes less irritation. I searched for a long time before I found this product with the inner thigh protection that umpires need. No problem with torn stitching that others cite. I am thin and I ordered L when my true size is between M and L. I never thought of these as "tights". The undergarment I use for officiating basketball is quite a bit tighter. In fact, there is no need for this baseball product to be "tights". This product needs to do only two things...hold the cup in place and hold the kevlar pads in place. The design solution is simple...use more material so that they feel looser for umpires with bigger thighs. Get rid of the "tights" concept and market them as "cup & kevlar pads holders".
