Unequal Uncap Protective FlexShell
Official 2-Minute Review: Unequal Uncap Protective FlexShell
Ty Unthank gives you the inside scoop on the @Unequal Uncap FlexShell for Baseball & Softball Umpires. Get 320-degree head protection under your cap - no one will know you are wearing it!
I was originally looking for a skull cap. I watched the video and I purchased it and it does the job very well. It fits just right and it still has ventilation for those hot summer days.
Just love it. Perfect protection without letting others know!
Lake Elsinore, CA
I took a direct shot from a foul ball wearing this in a AAA Division Little League game (9-11 year olds). It was paired with a Diamond Big League Umpire Traditional Mask. A solid hit, square in the center of the mask and I did not feel a thing. The mask stayed in its proper place because of this cool product. People have no clue I am wearing additional protection and fellow umpires like the fact they can wear their ball caps. This cap insert will help provide some protection from baseballs bouncing off the backstop and hitting your head. It will help with time when a ball hits the mask at the top edge and drives the cage into your head.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||By putting this under the sweat band of your cap, wouldn’t that make your cap be at least a size smaller?|
– Steve Avnet
Thanks for this concern Steve. Yes, you may find that the Uncap will add surface area to your head which may need to be compensated for via a larger cap size.– Brandon Lawson
