Force3 Ultimate 32" Umpire Equipment Bag on Wheels
Official Review: Force3 Ultimate 32" Umpire Equipment Bag on Wheels
See the durability, quality, and professionality we have come to expect from Force3 once again delivered with this equipment bag.
I was excited to receive the bag and start using it. However, I was not satisfied with the design. First, it was really difficult to insert the PE boards. It felt like they were not the right size for the bag. Second, I didn't like that you cannot access both sections at the same time. Third, the bag does not have a lot of interior pockets. If you want to keep your small accessories organized in secure, this is not the bag for you. It's basically two main sections with no accessory pockets. This bag would be ideal with two improvements. 1) if you could open it up completely laid out and you have access to both the clothes section and the gear section. 2) if the interior had accessory pockets. I will most likely return this bag to the vendor.
I love the size of the Force 3 Gear Bag. The biggest issue with the last 2 bags I purchased was that one of the rods for telescopic handle broke in both cases.

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.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Will I be able to fit my base shoes and plate shoes in this bag?|
– Jon Boston
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
