Ump-Attire.com Service Guarantee

Recommended Posts

I purchased a mask from Ump-Attire.com in March. Wore it maybe 25 times they spring/summer.  Without going into the specs of the mask (though will say it was $100+), I recently noticed it had a 2 cracks after a game in which I did not take a direct hit. I was puzzled how it could have happened. I loved the mask and had taken several direct hits before with no apparent damage! So, I reached out to Ump-Attire.com's customer service and asked how strong they were about their 100% satisfaction guarantee on the site and further explained the issue with the mask.  By the next business day I received a response that I could send the mask in for inspection and if it was deemed defective they would contact me with further instructions. I sent the mask in and received another email simply asking me if I'd like a replacement or another product free of charge. Within minutes and a few more exchanges, no questions asked, a replacement was ordered and on its way priority mail free of charge!  100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE fulfilled by Ump-Attire.com! Thank You x a million!

Ruh-roh, Raggy!

Based on your endorsement of another recent post on here, my guess is we're talking about a Wilson DynaLite, and when you further say it was $100+, that extends my guess to lean towards it being an Aluminum one.

If that is true, call me Not Surprised.

Aluminum doesn't bend, at least not to the same degree as Steel or Titanium. Like Titanium, it has low density (mass) and forms an oxidation layer on its surface (skin) shortly after exposure. This is why the two metals don't corrode or decay. This oxidation layer also hampers welding, requiring swift, precise, focused welds done with careful attention to time and temperature. Sometimes, when a manufacturer is in a rush to produce a mass quantity, these welds are not consistently perfected.

Due to aluminum's low density and resistance to deform, that impacting force has to be transferred somewhere. Eventually, it gets transferred to the pads, and then anything left over goes to your face, but what's the first thing that gets it? Yup, the welds. And if there is no elasticity in the welds, they develop cracks. And once aluminum cracks, it will shear (or shatter).

Don't think that this doesn't affect Diamond aluminum masks either, because it does – I've got three weld-busted Diamond DFM's here to prove it.

      Made in America with the same quality construction and attention to detail that you’ve come to expect from Ump-Attire products, the Ultimate Performance umpire shirt incorporates innovative technology to keep you cool and dry, and to fight the growth of odor-causing microbes that can cause a shirt to retain odors even after going through the wash.
      Dynamic moisture-wicking technology pulls perspiration away from the body quickly to keep you cool on even the hottest days. Anti-microbial technology inhibits the growth of odor-causing microbes which can cause an umpire shirt to develop odors in your bag or in your closet, even after repeated washings. Smooth, comfortable fabric is wrinkle-resistant and also resists snagging and pilling, so you always look crisp and professional. No-holes mesh fabric provides comfortable ventilation without allowing your chest protector to show through. Available in Black, Navy and Powder Blue Staff note: Lightweight, Ultimate fabric tends to pick when in direct contact with Velcro. Be careful storing or washing items with Velcro with this shirt.

      Ump-Attire products are designed, made, distributed and owned by Custom Officials Wear, which is owned by Beulah Hester. These products are not made by Ump-Attire.com. Ump-Attire.com, while not manufacturing any products itself, currently serves as the exclusive online retailer of Ump-Attire brand products.

      I am in the market for some cool pack to wear under my CP in the summer. I need to look more professional to keep up with you young guys. I admit it, I'm a geezer.

      UA has a new set of these things, has anyone used them?

      If you currently use something like this, tell me what you like and don't like about your set up.

      Your comments are gratefully appreciated.

      On sale at Ump-Attire.com. I picked up a second pair. While I'm a convert to Zigs, I really like the comfort of these plate shoes. Got my first pair at the NCAA clinic for $79 and these for about $100 (including shipping).
