Smitty Major League Replica Long Sleeve Umpire Shirt - Sky Blue with Black
Las Vegas, NV
So I wore this umpire shirt once so far last weekend, which shouldn’t be enough to form an opinion on this. However, it was a horribly hot and humid day (110 degrees 30% humidity) so it was experienced in the most extreme condition. Why long sleeves in this weather? Sweat. I typically wear a tight-fitting type undershirt to manage sweat running down my arms & getting on everything. Decided to cut down 1 layer of shirt & try the long sleeve option. I thought I was going to die. I have never been so hot in an umpire shirt in my life. It was a 5 game day and I shed that thing after the 2nd game. I see a lot of complaints about the collar, the collar becomes much worse when it’s sweaty. The material is also different than the short sleeve shirt. Probably my fault but I thought it would be the same. Just giving you my experience if you were considering it, don’t. Re-evaluate the product in cooler weather. Back to an undershirt option for me instead.
Looks great, fits great with chest protector on. Don't need to size up.
