Smitty Open Bottom Half-Zip Umpire Jacket - Black and White
Great umpire jacket! Warm enough for 40 degree weather, but not too much to wear in 60 degree either. I have worn tucked in when working plate and left out when on the bases and looks good either way. The fit is just right as well.
This is a great umpire jacket for the High School or College level games. The open hem bottom allows for the jacket to be tucked in nicely. When working the plate, this jacket allows for easy access into either of your ball bags and doesn’t get in the way, which can be the problem with other jackets that are not tucked in. On the bases, this jacket looks very professional tucked in. Once you step onto any field, your appearance is the first impression you give. With this jacket, you will not only feel great wearing it, but you will also look great, which gives off the impression that you are serious & 100% professional about umpiring.
I purchased this umpire jacket because I was tiring of my appearance when I tucked my jacket with the expander waistband. There is a time for my older jacket, colder days, dressed in layers. With this purchase, I now saw a more professional, trimmer version of myself. This is the perception I want, when I first walk on the field.
