Smitty Performance Poly Spandex Charcoal Grey Combo Umpire Pants
The color of these umpire pants look great! They have a loose fit, maybe too much so because they feel and look like actual plate pants. Because I'm a big guy, I have always bought combo pants for the bases because they have more room in the seat and thigh than base pants. However, the pants around the shin area are more narrow. Not so with these combo pants. I will try the base pants. I also don't like that they do hold up after putting them in the washer and dryer. Dry cleaning seems imperative.
Great fit and they look sharp...they will give a bit. Nice to go with just one pair of pants now. Force3 Ultimate Umpire Shin Guards fit perfect under them. Shipping to Canada is a breeze for the Ump-Attire.com crew.
I recently purchased a second pair of these umpire pants. They are lightweight and durable. Perfect for those really hot days. They also look great after being washed.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||What is the difference between Combo pants and Plate pants? And between Combo pants and Base pants?|
– Joseph Reynolds
Between Combo Umpire pants and Plate Umpire pants, there is a 1.25 inch difference in diameter around the knee allowing adequate space for various shin guard sizes. While Plate and Combo umpire pants are manufactured with a re-enforced sewn-in saddle seat for the demands of plate work, the Base umpire pants are a traditional athletic cut without a sewn-in saddle seat.– Ty Unthank
