Staten Island, NY
My group uses these pants so I had to order. Feel great!
Upon receiving them they looked baggier than I expected, and I was concerned about them being too much working the field. After getting them properly hemmed, it turned out that they were perfect. Easy to move in on the bases, and still big enough to fit the shin guards without looking tight. The perfect backup pair of umpire pants to have on hand at all times for whatever work might come up on those long days with multiple games.
South Mills, NC
Product is exactly as advertised and received in excellent condition. Keep up the good work!
Second pair of these umpire pants and I will buy a third. You can move in them and they look good.
Love these umpire pants. They are comfortable and airy.
Best umpire pants on the market. Very durable and very professional look and feel to them. Would recommend to anybody.
The Smitty Poly Spandex umpire pants are without a doubt the best umpire pants ever. I am very traditional & was reluctant to buy them but after buying my first pair of base pants without the expander waistband I am convinced I waited too long. In the older style, I had to wear 44 with expander waistband but these have plenty of stretch that give so the 44 without the expander waistband fit perfect. Ump-Attire.com has ALL your uniforms, equipment & supplies at great prices & they are the best for their customer service too.
The best combo umpire pants on the market - highly recommend!
I order these combo umpire pants.
Purchased a second pair of the Smitty combo umpire pants. Love the extra give they have. Look great!
Bought these Smitty combo umpire pants for my son who has been wearing my hand-me-downs for a few years. The poly-spandex looks great & now he will have a couple of pairs that look as professional as the ones we all wear. The combo umpire pant works better for him currently as he works little league & summer ball.
These are great umpire pants! High quality and professional look. Breathable with good air flow. First time going without the stretch waistband but still very comfortable. Better fit.
Nice sharp looking umpire pants, especially versus less expensive models. Wish they were a little more durable for the price. This is my second pair in 2 seasons.
Vero Beach, FL
Just ordered my second pair of Smitty umpire pants. They fit really well, super lightweight, and look really good on the field. My new favorite pants.
The color of these umpire pants look great! They have a loose fit, maybe too much so because they feel and look like actual plate pants. Because I'm a big guy, I have always bought combo pants for the bases because they have more room in the seat and thigh than base pants. However, the pants around the shin area are more narrow. Not so with these combo pants. I will try the base pants. I also don't like that they do hold up after putting them in the washer and dryer. Dry cleaning seems imperative.
Great fit and they look sharp...they will give a bit. Nice to go with just one pair of pants now. Force3 Ultimate Umpire Shin Guards fit perfect under them. Shipping to Canada is a breeze for the Ump-Attire.com crew.
I recently purchased a second pair of these umpire pants. They are lightweight and durable. Perfect for those really hot days. They also look great after being washed.
These umpire pants are very comfortable and pretty true to size. Very durable!!
Very comfortable and cooler than all my other pairs of umpire pants. Seems to keep the moisture away. Received many compliments on the sleek look.
Floyds Knob, IN
I love these umpire pants! They are sharp and look great! Don't hang your clothes up, don't worry about wrinkles.
I bought a pair of these umpire pants when they were on sale and shipping was waived. What a deal! I attended a clinic this weekend and I got lots of compliments on them. They are comfortable and completely unrestrictive. Great pants!
These pants are comfortable and look sharp behind the plate. I bought a pair for my son for Christmas.

I love these umpire pants. They look good and their performance is second to none. You won't go wrong wearing these pants anytime during the ball season. GO BLUE!!!
The best pair of umpire pants I have ever bought. Comfortable, excellent fit and do not wrinkle. They also look nice.
I wear combo pants on the plate and base pants on the bases. These umpire pants make me look and feel sharp. Great investment.
These pants are the best thing to happen to umpires in a long time. Comfortable enough to wear as regular slacks! They hold up to washing well with very little fade. True size for fitting. They breath incredibly well. If you're not wearing them, you're missing out.
Liked them so much, bought a second pair! Look great, professional and the dark charcoal is a great color! Did I mention the lightweight material is durable and cooling during those long summer games?! The $10 off promotion was great too! Saved enough to about pay for the 3rd pair (got a plate pair too!).
Great fit. Light weight and comfortable. Only draw back is its hard to hold the hem. Thin material tends to lose the stitching, but definitely worth the money.
Great umpire pants. I bought these to wear as base pants, since the cut through the seat and upper legs fits me better than actual "base pants". I got the lower legs taken in when having them hemmed, and they look great and feel great, even during one of the hottest summers I can remember.
Very good umpire trousers. I'm happy with my purchase. I bought two more in order to have 5 pairs.
I hadn't worn the umpire pants I bought last year due to a job change. Last Thursday I took the tags off and suited up in 95 degrees. I love these pants! The most comfortable umpire pants that I have worn! You will be ordering more.
Crystal Lake, IL
Umpire pants are true to size and work for behind the plate as well as the field. Only downside with the grey is that sweat starts to show on those hot days.
Light weight, cooler than the traditional umpire pants. Only down fall is they slide in the waistline if you wear dry fit under shirts and tights. Over all good product.
I really like these umpire pants. They are cooler and very comfortable. Look great!!
These umpire pants are so comfortable and truly has that professional appearance.
This was my third pair of these umpire pants. I like the fabric and how they keep you cool on the hot days. I will never wear the old style pants again.
Three simple words, I love them.
Great umpire pants!!! Very comfortable and classy looking. Holds a crease very well.
Great pair of umpire pants. Roomy enough for being behind the plate but look good in the field as well. Very comfortable and the stretchy fabric is great. Cooler in the hot weather as well. My go to pants every time. Maintains its creases and look with every wash.
St. Louis, MO
These umpire pants are great fitting and light weight!
I use the combos for my plate pants 5'10", 170 and I use Force3 shin guards. The combo are wide enough for my shin guards and look awesome. Highly recommended!!
Did not like the texture of these pants, I would never wear these pants. Sorry, but my son and I refuse to wear these pants.
Wore these for the 1st time behind the plate this weekend. Perfect fit. Didn't snag. The stretch fabric and light weight make them perfect for the Florida sun. They will pick up the clay, but it's an easy dust off. Love them!
Wore these for the first time this weekend. I am not a fan of synthetic pants because I usually get sweaty and sticky. These however felt great! They kept me cool and did not get stuck on my shin guards. Plenty of give and movement. They did not look like cheap "plastic" pants and stayed nice throughout the day with a nice soft feel.The combo is a good option for guys starting out because they looked good on the bases too. I will buy a second pair soon.
Used these umpire pants for the first time last night and I fell in love instantly. I was amazed on how well they move with my shin guards underneath. I love how flexible they are when getting into position to see the pitch coming in. I didn't have to worry about my pants ripping from behind which has happened before. I will be purchasing another pair for the bases soon.
South Jordan, UT
Great pants that feel and look as advertised. After wearing them quite a few times, they look as good as new. Not to mention, sweat/water never soaks through. The only thing that took me a little off guard was the gray color. It's not what I'm used to, however, I'm still giving these a five star rating because I purchase for quality, not necessarily a perfect color match. I also get more compliments on these pants than any else.
ROUND MOUNTAIN, NV
The most comfortable pair of umpire pants I've owned yet. The combo pants have that great fit without being baggy behind the plate. The waist is about true to size.
Love these umpire pants. They stretch in all the right places and have an athletic fit. They look great on the field no matter what your partner is wearing. Waistband doesn't 'adjust', but it does stretch to give a great fit throughout the season.
Love the pants. Anything to stay cool in the hot, humid days of summer Baseball season. They are as advertised.
These combo pants are nice on those hot days. True to size.
These umpire combo pants feel like silk pajama pants. They fit great and keep you cool.
I had to go with the combo pants due to not having my size in my original choices. I do like the pants and they perform well. They are comfortable and the stretchable waist is a plus.
The pants look great, the issue here is breathability, which the jury is still out on. The other Smitty pants, sans spandex, allowed more air flow.
I really like these umpire pants. Wore them in recent tournament as plate pants. They stretch and are relaxed fit for sure. There was no pinching or pulling around leg guards or cup. You know what I mean!
These umpire pants looks great and feel great right out of package - picked them up from my tailor tomorrow! Love the feel and the way they fit - will be used on field on Saturday!
Feel is very nice and smooth. Full cut all over which is good on the backside for when in position behind the plate but the legs are so full on the Combo pants and cut a little too large for me to be comfortable with the combo pants on the bases.
Yates City, IL
Best pants you will ever own. The dark grey color is rich and made a little darker to withstand many washes because we small town umpires only keep two or three pair of pants and need them to stay dark grey for at least two seasons and a couple hundred dates on the diamond. They have a very smooth feel and you can tell right away they are stitched with tight weave. I have done two weekend baseball tournaments already and they are holding up great and don't show any dirt for the whole day until you switch out for the following day. Three pairs for the weekend work well and then just throw them into washer/dryer and they are ready again. Try them you won't go back to your old pants.
Moscow Mills, MO
I ordered two pair of these Smitty Umpire pants and they were delivered today. Not sure if I will keep them yet. I love the feel and the fit but not the color. The picture shows they are very close in color to the gray on the shirt, but these pants are quite a bit darker. I'm former military and I am very particular about how I look while wearing a uniform and am just not comfortable with how much different these are. Much darker than the wool charcoal pants.
Belle Plaine, MN
OMG is a good way to describe these umpire pants. Scott was not kidding around when he said these pants were lightweight, absolutely fell in love with these pants when I put them on, cannot wait to order another pair. These will become my go to pants this year; absolutely perfect. Just another awesome product from an awesome company.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||What is the difference from these to the other $59.99 pair of pants?
– Steve Gesch
These pants are not equipped with a 3-inch expanding waistband.– Renee Gnagie
Customer Service Lead
|Q:||What is the difference between Combo pants and Plate pants? And between Combo pants and Base pants?|
– Joseph Reynolds
Between Combo Umpire pants and Plate Umpire pants, there is a 1.25 inch difference in diameter around the knee allowing adequate space for various shin guard sizes. While Plate and Combo umpire pants are manufactured with a re-enforced sewn-in saddle seat for the demands of plate work, the Base umpire pants are a traditional athletic cut without a sewn-in saddle seat.– Ty Unthank

|Q:||How are the pockets? Deep front and back or are they shallow? Are they like the poly wool pockets?|
– Rob Landry
These Smitty umpire pants feature deep pockets, both front and back. The front pockets are approximately 12" deep and the back pockets are approximately 7" deep. Smitty uses the same cut for all their umpire pants, regardless of material, so these pockets are similar to those featured on the poly wool umpire pants.– Josh Mann

|Q:||Does these pants come with Expander Waistband?|
– Hans Walker
While these umpire pants do NOT have an expandable waistband, they do run true to size. Order your waist size, and you'll be fine.– Sherie Sandifer
|Q:||Since they do not make a poly spandex charcoal grey women’s pant, I have been going back and forth on whether or not I should order a pair of the men’s and just see if possibly they could work and not look silly on me. What do you recommend for size? I wear a size 8 - 10 in the women’s in the grey. Any helpful input would be great. Thanks |
– Meacham Harlow
We have a table showing the conversion of women's umpire pants size into a men's size in the fitting room. According to the table, you could fall anywhere between a men's 38 up to a 44. That is quite a size range so I would recommend taking advantage of our FREE RETURNS for the Contiguous United States and ordering a few sizes to see which will work best. Some alterations may be needed to better fit a women's body, but once you get the proper fit, chances are you will love the new material.– Josh Mann

|Q:||What is the length of the inseam unhemmed?|
– Bradley Rorem
These umpire pants have a 36" inseam unhemmed.– Sherie Sandifer
|Q:||What's the difference between Poly Spandex and Ploy Wool? Do they look the same? |
– Juan ( John ) Solis
The material is what makes the pants different from each other. The Poly Spandex pants are a blend of polyester and spandex where the Poly Wool are a polyester and wool blend. These differences will make the pants look different from one another. The Poly Spandex is a solid shade of charcoal grey, where the Poly Wool has more of a salt & pepper tone to them.– Josh Mann

|Q:||Do these come in flat front?|
– Anthony Michael
I'm sorry Anthony, but the Charcoal Grey Poly Spandex pants are only offered with pleats. If you are looking for flat front in this material, Medium Grey (similar to Heather Grey) is available (S397-HG).– Josh Mann

|Q:||Is the item model number bbs-391?|
– Liam Han
|A:||Yes, the product number for these combo Umpire Pants is S391. "BB" stands for baseball and "S" stands for Smitty.|
