After many years of designing, prototyping and testing, Force3 is proud to introduce the next generation of baseball face masks, the Force3 Defender. The Defender is truly an amazing technological creation that will revolutionize equipment forever. Independent tests conducted by one of the four independent National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) approved testing facilities in the world, concluded that nothing comes close to the protection as the Defender. With virtually the same footprint of a traditional mask, the Defender’s patented technology reduces frontal impact forces in most cases. *NOCSAE® does not have umpire mask standards, and that these masks have not been certified as compliant with any NOCSAE® standard. Features: - Lightweight tubular chrome alloy - Standard harness included, no need to purchase an additional harness - Patented dual mask system with the Shock Suspension System (S3) - Single bar construction for optimal view - Unequal Technologies lined padding - 4 different high-impact foam padding construction with special memory comfort foam on chin and sides - Powder coated for superior finish - Weighs less than 27oz. - Pads available in Black, Navy, Royal, Red, Maroon and Purple.
