It would be an understatement to say that while batting, seeing the ball is important. Yet, for such an important idea, so many of the face guards available to you do not address this need. They are big, bulky, awkward, and ineffective at working with you to be a better hitter. The RIP-IT Face Guard addresses this issue by offering a view that is not only unrivaled, but also lets you make better contact with the ball and do it more often.
The design of the RIP-IT Face Guard is streamlined. We engineered it with only what was necessary to protect you while focusing on offering the widest, largest viewable area. The result is an opening so large that you can see rise balls, drop balls, curves, and sliders without the ball ever crossing a bar and limiting your vision. This means you see the ball better and will be a better hitter on every pitch.
After creating the original RIP-IT Face Guard we wanted to push the idea of better vision even further. What we came up was Blackout Technology and it is like eyeblack for your equipment, but better. Blackout Technology coats the inside bars of the face guard with a special matte coating that eliminates 100% of the reflective glare. What this means to you is an even better hitting experience that allows you to focus like never before on making contact with the ball.
