I was using some cheap version for working High School Softball, which is in the Fall here, but then I tried these and haven't worn the other ones I have since!

Afraid they were going to be hot but they did breathe nicely! The only downside is the $20 extra bucks to tailor and for us short guys they hang a little low in the crotch and are baggy. It would have been better with pre-sized pants to choose from instead of having enough material to satisfy a 6'8" person when based on waist size, a 5’8” person has the same inseam and hangs down! Otherwise, they do look sharp on the field.
Great product. Arrived in a reasonable amount of time. No issues ordering here
Questions About This Product

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
