Smitty Performance Poly Spandex Charcoal Grey Umpire Plate Pants with Expander Waistband
Crew How-To: Pressing and Ironing Your Umpire & Referee Pants
Ty gives you detailed, step-by-step, instructions to keep your umpire or referee pants looking sharp and crisp.
I will buy no other pants. They are very comfortable, lightweight, and they hold their color. They do NOT fade nearly as quickly as other brands. Also, the “expander waist” is a plus for me, as I need to tuck in extra base layers while working cold weather games up here in ND in the spring.
These pants are very well made and I would highly recommend them for all umpires.
I fully recommend these pants for summer baseball. They breathe so much better than the regular poly-wool umpire pants do. For spring ball, I still wear the regular pants (poly-wool), but when the weather heats up I start to reach for these. They breathe well, dry well (rain or sweat) and you just feel cooler in these with every breeze. These pants tend to wear well, hold their color and look great - what's not to like? Buy a pair and get out there!
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How many belt loops do the pants have?|
– John Garland
The number of belt loops on these pants correlates directly with the size of the waist. For example: a size 32 will have 5 loops, while a size 44 will have 7 loops.– Holly Montgomery
