Fifth Region Officials Supplies -


Recommended Posts

When you are living in Europe (Norway) buying equipment always involves costly shipping, import taxes, handling fees etc. etc.

Fifth Region Officials Supplies have very low shipping cost to Norway and have a descent collection of Umpire Equipment.

Has anyone any comments on Fifth Region Officials Supplies ?  :question1:

I have two words for anyone in the U.S. UMP ATTIRE There's no excuse to order from anyone else. And, if you do, don't bitch about customer service/lead times. You brought it on yourself.

I have one word too...http://www.ump-attire.com/

i don't know if anyone has experienced this...but, their order fulfillment takes an awfully long time. Have made 3 orders so far, the last 2 orders took almost 2.5 weeks to ship and my most recent order still hasn't shipped and the order was placed on April 29 and the charge to my credit card was made on the same day.

I also had a bad experience with having to wait weeks to get my order. Then when it arrived it was wrong size and style. Ordered wool fitted and it came mesh and about 2 sizes bigger then I ordered. I no longer even visit the site. Bad thing is I think they are actually located in my state and about 3 hours away.

Apologies for bringing up an old topic, however I have also had a bad experience with Fifth Region Officials. I made an order of one cap and one harness on July 2nd. I have tried calling and emailing them with regards to the shipment and have recieved no answer or reply. Now 2 weeks later my order still has not been shipped.

I have had nothing but good experiences with Fifth Region Officials. I can't understand how everybody seems to have bad experiences with anybody except umpattire. I have yet to have a bad experience with any of the companies that I buy umpire gear from, including umpattire, pluspos, fifth region, honigs, btl officials, etc..

Sorry, I couldn't resist.  Always have to make sure to add the .com when referring to us specifically.  For sure we have our share of foul ups, it's impossible not to.  Nothing to do but own up to it, fix it, and move on.

Ump-Attire will get most of my business.  I've had mixed results from Fifth Region with several orders with partially-filled orders, a couple of items back-ordered that never did show up, and one order that was the wrong style shirt.  I've had nothing but absolutely positive experiences with each and every transaction with Ump-Attire. 

 

In my over 20 years in dealing with Honigs, I've never had one problem with them either; I ordered a plate coat from them back in the 80's and needed the next larger size. I called up and talked to Dick directly about the situation.  I had a game in three days and that wouldn't have given the return and shipment of the replacement enough time.  Dick sent the replacement out that day, and just told me to put the one I had back in the same box and return.  Great customer service!  It's because of that (and I know their polywools are the gold standard) that Ump-Attire doesn't get all my business. I still have the plate coat, but it seems to have shrunk!  It won't fit anymore :wub:

 

In the past, I have also dealt with Purchase Officials Supplies, and had no complaints with price or shipments.

I just wish Ump-Attire's shipping to Canada was more reasonable. $36 for a cap is a bit much!

One word for Ump-Attire.com,

Paypal

The great things, and there are only 2, about Fifth Region is that they take Paypal and they sell ASA apparel.

Did I mention they take Paypal?

They would have to raise prices to cover fees

I have to say Ump-Attire has been the fastest equipment I have ever ordered tbh. I needed to make a change to an order I made at 10:00 PM and couldn't call them until like 11:00 AM the next morning to correct it and they had already boxed it for shipping and I just caught it. Almost faster then my local Chinese restaurant that is notorious for giving the same line to everyone, "Ok your order ready in 10 minute, you be here"

I used Fifth Region for the first time this year for some football equipment. Basically I used them because they had the best price on Zig Magistrates by $20. Once they shipped I got my stuff in good order...the problem was it took them 10 days to ship. I was almost to the point of cancelling the order and getting my stuff from a different supplier that I KNEW would ship quickly. Will I use them again? Maybe. Depends on what I need and if I need it quickly.

I ordered on March 7th and still have not received my order.  I hope it's right and before my game Saturday.  Customer service has been awful by phone and e-mail.    Lots of incorrect information.   I will not be ordering from them again.   Ordered due to price and said 1-2 days shipping.   I am going back to ordering through Honig's.

      EQUIPMENT FORUM ATTENDEES (primarily new folks)
      Warren (Umpire in Chief) works tirelessly to make sure this site is beneficial for everyone.  Please, let's help Warren keep the site clean by utilizing the SEARCH function before asking questions.   Most of what you're going to ask on this forum has "probably" been discussed, sometimes ad nauseum, and re-creating a NEW post on a subject that's been talked to death just clogs the site up with unnecessary threads.
      NEWBIES:
      First and foremost ...... Welcome! 
      Please feel free to ask questions and LEARN,... we're all here for that purpose for sure, HOWEVER .... please make sure the information you're looking for isn't already available to you on the site by doing a simple search before posting a question, shown below:

      Then, choose where you want to search, either THIS FORUM, or you can use GOOGLE as shown below:

       
      The attachment below shows a sample search for a Wilson Mask in the Search area.  Both Google and "this forum" produced the same results.   HINT: You can use quotation marks around the words you're looking for to create a 'phrase' which can fine-tune your search.

      Here is the 'results' page showing 109 'hits' and 5 pages worth of information.

      This information can be used for all forums, but we have found that 'searches' help the most on the equipment board.
      Finally, this post is NOT MEANT to be rude or condescending.  It's simply a good way to ensure that information we have on this site is maintained in the same area instead of having great info and answers to common questions scattered all over the place.  Nothing less, nothing more, I promise!  
      Enjoy, and happy reading!

      Hey everyone,
      So I have a Force 3 V3 CP which I absolutely love. However, one problem I have is the edges of some of the plates are protruding out. I want to try and form the plates to better contour the CP to my chest. Any suggestions, methods that have worked??

      Maybe I’m a little bit crazy, but aren’t we all a little bit “crazy” when we decide to umpire? I have a Nike (used for about 3 games) with black TW pads, with black tape), MLB harness. I’m looking to trade it for a Power “L.” Maybe I’m dreaming, but I’ll give it a shot. Link to pictures below:

      These shoes  (black and white) were worn for two games and they’re pretty much brand new. The only issue is some clay stains I wasn’t able to get out. PM me with offers. The pictures are in the link.
