The FORCE3 Pro Gear Defender Mask is a highly engineered mechanical device.  Please ensure you always adhere to the following instructions:

1) For optimal performance the FORCE3 Pro Gear Hockey Style Defender Mask must NOT be worn loose.  It must be fitted properly and snug to your face/head.

2) Under no circumstances should you use any accessories other than those designed by FORCE3 Pro Gear for specific use with your Defender Mask.  Every component is designed to work together to provide you with the best protection when withstanding an impact.

3) You must inspect your mask after every impact to ensure it is in its original, intact condition. If there are any questions or concerns, please do not wear the mask and contact us immediately at

Catcher's Helmets

Helmets should fit snug and sit just above the eyebrows with clear vision through the cage's eye opening.

Catcher's Chest Protectors

Chest Protectors should fit high on the players chest with the throat guard covering the base of the players neck. Chest protectors are measured from the indent between the collarbones to the navel.

Catcher's Leg Guards

Leg Guards should fit securely with the plastic knee centered on the knee cap and covering the entire shin. Leg Guards are measured while seated from the ankle bone to the center of the kneecap.
