All-Star Cobalt Umpire Skull Cap
Official Review: All-Star Cobalt Umpire Skull Cap
Ty takes you behind the plate with @AllStarSportsVids innovative skull cap designed specifically for baseball and softball umpires.
Great airflow! Fits perfect and the material is very light. Yet protective! Good price.
I had a few worries about this, none of which were a problem. First, no one takes a second look when I'm wearing this. Second, it holds onto my head as good or better than a ball-cap. Third, It is light and not bulky at all. I tried the Unequal Uncap before this and was very unhappy with it. This helmet is absolutely perfect. You barely know it is there, and it is cooler temperature wise than a cap!

It takes a bit getting used to at first from a normal hat, but it’s amazing after you get used to it. I had to go to the hospital last year a couple times with concussions, but this year I haven’t gotten a concussion. I also feel much more protected with it on. You get the benefits of a full cage and just the mask. It’s like having the best of both worlds with this skull cap.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||When I pull my mask over the top of the helmet the back strap of the Force 3 mask has a tendency to ride up the smooth surface of the skull cap & becomes a loose fit real fast. Several times I've had to keep it from coming off by holding with my hand. It's not safe nor effective to call pitches this way. Any suggestions or remedies to keep the mask secure on the slick surface on the back of the skull cap? Thank you.|

We suggest installing a harness made from a more tacky material than the nylon straps of the Force3 Universal Umpire Mask Harness. The All-Star Delta Flex Umpire Mask Harness is the best solution. This harness was designed by All-Star with a tacky neoprene surface to grip their Cobalt Skull Cap. The UMPLIFE V2 Flex Umpire Harness is also a neoprene based harness in a traditional shape. Either of these harnesses will secure better to the skull cap surface.– Hunter Fry
