As a long-time user (decade+) of the Diamond bag (pre-telescoping handle), I was looking for something a little more compact and with a telescoping handle. The Force3 bag met those basic requirements but ultimately turned out not to be the bag for me. It seems to be well-constructed, with rugged wheels and what feels like a solid telescoping handle. It also has ample room to carry what I need for game travel. For me, however, it lacked necessary inside and outside pockets for smaller gear and/or personal items. I also wish that the top compartment was accessible when the bag is laid open; as it is, one must close the bottom compartment in order to open and access the top compartment. 4 stars - add accessory pockets. 4.5 stars - make the top compartment accessible from top and bottom. 5 stars - add premium zipper pulls/sliders.

Very nice bag. The telescopic handle makes it easy to pull. Plenty of room inside for clothes and equipment. Highly recommend this bag.
I had been using the Diamond Ultimate 33" Wheeled Umpire Equipment Bag with Telescopic Handle but decided to switch to this one. Early on, I've been far happier with the Force3. I never used the shoe pocket on the Diamond bag which only seemed to take away storage space, especially seeing as it was not big enough to hold both my plate & base shoes. The Force3 is also rigid than the Diamond and seems to have nicer wheels and a nicer handle. If you're debating between the two, I would recommend the Force3, hands down.

Yes, the bottom-most compartment is 6 inches deep, then 32 x 15 inches long and wide, while the top section is 9 inches deep by the same 32 x 15 dimensions. Your umpiring shoes could fit in either compartment.– Ty Unthank
