Very good product. Comfortable. Will be back to order more.

Not allowed to have pleats on our umpire pants - so needed to be returned - the process, return and refund was quick and easy. These pants would have been perfect if they did not have pleats.
The best of all the Smitty umpire pants. Even though they are base pants they are still pretty baggy. I actually wear my shin guards under these still.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||I wear a size 32. With the expander waistband, should I go with a size 30?|

It is recommended to order your regular pants size when ordering these umpire pants. The expander waistband offers 2 extra inches of comfort, if needed. If you are still unsure, we offer free returns to those in the contiguous United States so there is no risk of ordering multiple sizes to see which works best.– Brandon Lawson
