Designed by umpires and made for umpires! The new Force3 Pro Gear bag has updated zippers, corner protectors, rugged wheels, new internal structure changes, a larger outside pocket, and a protective fabric between the wheels protecting the bag while you roll!
Every part of this bag was designed for optimal efficiency and storage, keeping the weight to under 14 pounds!
Features a 32″ x 15″ x 9″ compartment on top for all your equipment and a 6″ deep separate zippered bottom compartment for all of your clothing and uniforms underneath. The bottom compartment features two elastic straps to help keep your clothes organized and in place. This bag conforms to all airline specifications for checked luggage with a 62″ maximum allowance.
The main compartment has two very large pockets that run down each side. There are also two large pockets that run along the front outside of the bag.
Made of the highest quality materials to last for many years. No detail was overlooked from the leather luggage tag, padded handles, angled wheels for wheeling stability, to the length of the pull handle to minimize stress on the handle to prevent it from breaking or bending.
This product is available from Ump-Attire.com.
Now, before I come across as a jerk or WAY too optimistic person, I had hopes that someone out there in this huge community of ours had a cool CP such as the Power or a Douglas that wasn't in the best condition and they are willing to part with for a LOW or what they think is reasonable.
As you all know, my league has this "Rule of 18" where an umpire cannot behind the plate unless he or she is 18. Well, I will be 18 just a few weeks after the Spring season starts, SO... HOME PLATE HERE I COME!!! I wanted to wear something that would celebrate such occasion/achievement, I, still can't believe it, was gifted my dream mask by one of my favorite players and I was looking to see if one of you out there could help me complete the "set" with the CP.
Thanks again and I apologize if I come across as snobbish,

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!
Just received the harness to replace the original on my Platinum CP.
Mere words aren't enough. This. Harness. Is. Beyond. AWESOME.
An added feature is that it has been personalized, which is icing on the cake ! Woo hoo !
Thanks @Razzer for the fantastic work, and thanks also to @MadMax for the referral !
