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!

Love how these fit, they are comfortable. I'll be getting a couple more pairs.
I purchased a pair of both plate and base pants and love the expanded waist option, however, one of the waist extenders on my plate pants ripped right off when pulling my pants together to buckle them before a game, and it just dangled there, and had to be secured with a bobby pin. Disappointed that I had to pay a seamstress to makeshift sew it back in the enclosure to hold the pants together! Smitty products should be more durable than that...not pleased.
