Smitty Performance Poly Spandex Charcoal Grey Umpire Plate Pants with Expander Waistband
I really like these umpire pants as they are very light and help to keep you cool on those hot days. The expander waistband makes them ultra-comfortable. I just purchased my second pair. The only thing to be wary of is that due to the nature of the lightweight fabric, they are prone to get marked up or very small tears in them if they get hit with a hard shot on your shin guards if the fabric gets pinched on an edge of your shin guards. The marks are not overly noticeable but be aware if you are very sensitive about your "look".
Great umpire pants that are extremely comfortable. Very lightweight and moisture-wicking in warm weather. I like the expander waistband because it gives you some breathing room at the waist like a pair of basketball shorts. Great for working the plate. They fit over the shin guards with plenty of room to spare for mobility. Bought a second pair recently as these are the only umpire pants I'll ever wear behind the plate. Definitely worth the money!
Received the umpire pants and had them heeled. Wore them and they fit great. Plenty of room for gear and looks great. The fit is amazing and very comfortable.
