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.

One of the little rubber things on one of the main zippers came off on mine. 

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.

      Amidst all the hubbub surrounding the debut of the Champro CM83/84 Rampage die-cast Magnesium mask, there’s another mask that appeared in Champro’s catalog that is just as intriguing and likely at a great price point.

      https://shop.champrosports.com/p-3852-proplus-aluminum-lightweight-umpire-mask-drigear.aspx
      This mask, my friends, is aluminum. It is the CM81/82, based on Champro’s CM71/72 Ultralight hollow steel mask, but this time done in aluminum, so it doesn’t bend! I know from experience of using it and supplying to my junior umpires, it has excellent sightlines, a squared chin guard with forward rake, and a broad extended crown guard. Now in aluminum, Champro really did think of everything!
      Here’s the big value, though... Wilson’s DynaLite Aluminum starts at $110. The famous Diamond DFM-iX3 is at $70, but could really use the thicker, better pads of the BL (Big League) version at $90. Well fellows, this here Champro is $70. I love the idea of taking that extra $40 I just saved and getting... well, just about anything else of quality to complete my umpire gear needs.

      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.

      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!
