Are they replaceable ?

Something breaks or falls off of mine every month. Would not buy it again.

Zipper pulls, the plastic feet, and several places have come unsewn. We umpire year round here but it mostly sits in the back seat of my truck, then I'll pull it out,and set it on the ground to get dressed. Its not like I'm sending it through airport luggage destruction every week. One of the feet broke off while I was loading it the first time-moved the bag and there it was. I'll just use it until I get around to buying another one, then I'll get get an eBag or Force 3 bag.

I understand that. I have an old Wilson that is falling apart. I had to build a frame for the bottom when the plastic one disintegrated. The divider between the top compartment and the bottom has torn through the fabric of the bottom of the top compartment. Otherwise for my use (4 years) it's been a good second hand bag that I bought off another local guy here.

Make sure you don't return it. The restocking fees of Epic Sports are outrageous. Man, you won the lotto? From saying that you were not able to drop $120 to get shin guards, you got the Force3 shin guards and a new bag.

Whys that? You don't want to help out your fellow umpire? Or give Force3 some more advertising?

What your right hand does your left hand doesn't need to know. I help my fellow umpires and don't need the cameras rolling. I would love to land a job in Force3. Maybe you just sparked a desire to ask them for a job.

I would have recommended the Diamond bag, but you've already bought the Champro.  Over the past 15 years, I've had 3 Diamonds and they've always held up for at least 5 years.

Yeah I would like one too, but it's $60 more. I only paid $95 and they are 3" shorter than the Champro bag.

So the bag itself is ok. The compartments have no solid divider. Just the same material as the inside of the bag. The Wilson bag has a solid divider between but I like the single large compartment.

The Champro? The divider zips up to keep top separated from bottom. Unless you mean the flimsy thing in the bottom. I took that out a long time ago.

The Wilson actually has a hard bottom to the top compartment.

Same here, annoying as heck because the tab of the zipper is too small to get a grip on otherwise. Haven't checked if there is a hole in the tab but if there is I'm going to put a key ring through it for something to grab. Otherwise a good bag thus far and I've had it for two years.

Can you share some experience with this site?

Whenever I try to reach them via a Google search (on my phone, using an adblocker), I get a message that the browser blocked my connection.

They always seem to have the lowest prices, bit I'm pretty skeptical. Guessing its just a Chinese front... Which is worth the risk sometimes (if everything goes smoothly)

So far it has been good. It seems US bound. My bag came out of Wichita.

Did you get anything to replace the pulls? I've noticed that it won't take much to pull them off.

I have used Epic Sports multiple times with no problems. Just about to reorder the third batch of our Association hats.

I haven't yet. Once the other one falls off I'll probably find something.

      My Diamond Ultimate 30" Equipment bag has reached it end of life. This year it remained on life support having had to glue one of the wheels in with Gorilla Glue. 
      So now find myself contemplating 2 bags:
      FORCE3 ULTIMATE 32" UMPIRE EQUIPMENT BAG ON WHEELS
      eBags TLS Mother Lode 29" Wheeled Duffel
      They both get a lot of positive mentions here. But here is one thing that is somewhat important to me, but I've never seen mentioned here; breath-ability.
      Why you ask?  After a game here in the summer my equipment is weighed down with tons of nasty sweat. So after my game I don't put my equipment back in the bag so it can air out - the best they can in my trunk. I would like to put it back where it belongs in my bag, but if I did my equipment would never dry out. 
      I'd love your thoughts pros/cons on each!

      I need some input. I have the Wilson 36" Bag and need to pack it differently to make everything fit. That being said I am having some logistical issues with making everything fit.
      Here is what I used to do when I used the Champro Pro Plus - Uniforms in the bottom, jackets, undergarments, hats, belts. Leg Guards, mask, ballbags, accessory bag (have since went to a tackle box), and CP over the top of all that. Shoes in one end of the top, and cleaning supplies and towels in the other. 
      Now since I have moved to the Unequal Force3 CP V1, All-Star 2510m Helmet. These are much bulkier. I have taken out all my Navy and put it in a separate bag. I have 4 pairs of pants in the top middle compartment, 4 short sleeve, one long sleeve, socks, undergarments, Plate shoes in one end, base in the other with the cleaning supplies. 
      Thoughts?
    • By Umpire_ar
      So, I am always looking to improve my organization and arrangement so as to make dressing as quick and painless as possible. As well as returning the bag to service for the next set. Attached are some picks of my current setup. Thoughts?? 

      Note that I use a single bag for gear and uniforms.
