Love these umpire mask pads. Super comfortable.

Great replacement pads. Very comfortable.
The gold standard for energy absorbing pads. This is my third set, and the quality remains high. If I have to get hit in the mask, I want these pads in my mask.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||I have a Diamond iX3 mask and need to replace the pads. How do the Wendy pads compare to the original pads on the iX3? Also, would these give more impact absorption than the iX3 pads?|
– Sean Day
The iX3 pads are made up of traditional foam you find in most mask pads. The Team Wendy pads are manufactured with Zorbium® foam, the same foam used in the US military helmets. This foam is known for significantly lowering the impact severity index and peak acceleration forces.– Brandon Lawson
