Smitty Performance Poly Spandex Medium Grey Plate Umpire Pants
OFFICIAL 2-MINTUTE REVIEW: Smitty Performance Poly Spandex Medium Grey Plate Umpire Pant
SEC & ACC Baseball Umpire, Scott Kennedy, gives you an "up close" look and description for the Smitty Performance Poly Spandex Heather Grey Plate Umpire Pants.
I love these umpire pants! I use pants made of the same material when officiating basketball. There are about the lightest, most breathable thing you can wear. I do wish they were a little darker. Several USA Softball UIC's have commented that they are too light in color to wear.
Used for two games. I tried to hem them with hemming tape, but didn't hold. Getting them hemmed before my next game. I loved the pants for the two games I used them. I usually wear the Gerry Davis pants, which I like. These new Smitty umpire pants fit and feel much better. They stretch when working the plate, instead of pulling at seams or restricting movement. Will be getting second pair.
I love these umpire pants! After shipping and hemming, they end up being about $85, which I feel is a little pricey. But, they fit great, and move freely with me. It feels like I can get in the slot much easier, since I don't have to adjust my pants. The regular ones seem to get hung up on my shin guards. I thought I would miss the expanding waist, but I like the overall fit. These are now my everyday game pants! My poly/wool ones are now the backup pair!
