    Hockey Style Neck Guard???

    Max nailed it Great idea for Canadian Fall Ball...lol The clear dangler will also shatter just like Plexi Glass when a puck hits at the perfect angle You also are stationary when umpiring and just the sound of getting hit would scare the life out of you. As for the bib....they do not work for protection...more for skate cuts and they are hot as hell

    Might be an all black version or both We will see how the samples look wear and feel before I make a big order

    Officials Depot vs Ump attire

    I will have samples of this convertible jacket Monday I was asked to source the same materials as Majestic from many umpires, I told the factory to use modern lightweight weather proof materials that will work II sent a Majestic jacket as the template so we will see just how it turned out Monday. Photos from factory of the 2 samples I had made

    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    MiLB guys like it, many not using the F3 mask It will be in MLB next season with lots of interest....they are always the last to know...lol It is a mask harness just different materials that work better and have more comfort with neoprene and elastic...no more poly webbing

    Shin Guards with Mid-Cut Plates

    F3 make a great shin pad for sure and I wear them. I have been taken many a good shot and the occasional bouncer. If I were to change anything on the F3 SP it would be adding an outer plastic ankle guard like the Wilson or Douglas. It would be the best shin pad never made...lol

    Imitation is a form of flattery I guess...

    If I may reply to who was first I am a hockey guy who once had his hand in everything goaltending. Growing up or Shoulder pads and chest pad were 2 separate units which I solved that problem by joining the two parts into one. I used the same design as my current harness although it was not neoprene at the time....this was over 30 years ago using the triangle donut only inverted I then adapted the donut to baseball when I payed baseball and did some catching. Next came umpiring and what we have today is nothing more than me figuring out what to do with it. Many people over the years have had me fix and make better all kinds of sports equipment as it was just a hobby On the new W Harness all I will say is I gave an umpire samples and last year I asked what happened to those samples...The MFg has them In those samples were a cooling vest, female harness and thinned out CP pad with ventilation I also do not believe the inspiration came from the W catcher CP because what they had was covered in plastic and rubber parts One thing comes to mind and that is the length is identical and elastic is used...coincidence ? My age right now 57 so maybe I was first
