Product Description
The Defense Pro is the ultimate mask for softball players. Designed to improve your play, not impede it, this protective mask boasts superior protection and comfort in an ultra-lightweight package. With an open design, it offers uninhibited visibility and is packed with special features like glare-reducing technology and moisture-wicking pads. It comes in a variety of sizes and convenient colors that match most standard uniforms. The RIP-IT Defense Pro features Blackout Technology, which is like eye-black for your equipment, only better. This helps eliminate glare from the sun and will help you see the ball like never before. The Defense Pro also comes with removable/washable moisture-wicking pads, features a ponytail-friendly Y-shaped head strap, and an infinitely adjustable chin cup for constant comfort, even when you’re calling for a pop up. Engineered with steel safety cells, this uses variable flex technology to transfer and reduce the force of impact. This allows the Defense Pro to remain lightweight (only 0.69 lbs) and utilize an open design for coolness and the largest viewable area of any softball mask on the market. In addition to effective shock absorption, the removable pads offer an optimal fit even when running and diving. You won’t know you’re wearing it until you’re glad you are! At RIP-IT, we understand that team sports are an integral part of confidence building and help provide girls with the skills they need to be successful. We make quality products that honor this commitment. That’s why each Defense Pro is backed with a $5,000 Peace of Mind Policy, which will help cover your medical costs in the (seriously unlikely) event of a dental or nose injury from a softball striking the fielder’s mask.

Before the Defense from Rip-It, players were forced to use fielding masks that limited their vision, were bulky, and were uncomfortable. With the Rip-It Defense the field of view opens up and comfort is possible thanks to a simplified design that eliminates any unnecessary bulk, while maximizing protection. Players wearing the Defense can actually see their feet when they look down–allowing them an unobstructed view of grounders, pop-ups, and fly balls. With steel safety cell design, ball impacts are repelled and the force is absorbed and transferred away from the point of impacts for maximum protection. Offered with Blackout Technology, the Defense cuts back on glare, delivering an even better view of the ball. Go out to the field with confidence and comfort–with the Defense Fielder’s Mask from Rip-It.

The Rip-It Defense offers an exceptionally wide field of view, designed not to interfere with your ability to see the ball.

The Steel Safety Cell:

  • Variable Flex Design: Providing the same impact protection known in the car industry as a crumple zone, the Defense’s steel safety cell is designed to be either stiff or flexible depending on the force of impact. This feature allows the Defense to stay rigid for a majority of the impacts a player may receive while playing. However, in that rare instance when the ball is traveling at an excessive speed, the steel safety cell will flex to transfer energy away from the point of contact offering the best possible protection in extreme circumstances. No matter how great the impact, when a ball strikes the Defense the energy and force of the impact is instantly spread over the entire surface area of the padding. With nearly two feet of padded surface area, the Defense is able to absorb more impact, transfer more energy, and reduce impact related injury.
  • Severity Index of 56 MPH Softball Impact: without Rip-It Defense–1200 SI; with Rip-It Defense–330 SI

Superior Wide Angle Viewing:
The Defense creates such a wide angle of view that players are able to forget they are wearing a facemask. With a simplified design that eliminates any unnecessary bulk, while maximizing protection, the Defense offers the best vision possible in a fielder’s facemask. Players wearing the Defense can actually see their feet when they look down–allowing them an unobstructed view when fielding grounders or pop-ups. The Defense’s clutter free design makes seeing the ball to your glove easy and flawless.

Blackout Technology:
Players have been wearing eye-black since baseball great Babe Ruth first smeared grease under his eyes. Since then, players from baseball to football have looked for an edge when fighting glare. Blackout Technology finally makes playing glare free a reality. With special matte coated bars, Blackout Technology works the minute you put on the Rip-It Defense, eliminating 100 percent of glare that can reflect into your eyes.

Superior Comfort:

  • Ponytails Strap: Ponytails are part of the game. If you wear a ponytail while playing you know the issues it can cause. The Defense solves this problem with its ponytail strap. The ponytail strap allows you to pull your ponytail through the opening so everything fits perfectly.
  • Chin Cups: With a back made of one continuous piece of Velcro, the Defense chin cup is infinitely adjustable–enabling it to fit exactly how you want it to. This means more comfort, better positioning, and the ability to talk easily while wearing a fielder’s mask.
