At the least, you have less money, and therefore less weight, to carry around in them.

For $25 more per pair they better have *some* kind of advantage over the Smitty's

Edit: Upon further review, they also missed the loop to the left (our right looking at the picture) of the clasp/zipper area. I'm beginning to question Gerry Davis and his dressing abilities.

It's hard to get that 1.75" belt thru those 1.75" belt loops:D

Someone once attributed the phrase about a "fool and his money soon parting" to the world famous P. T. Barnum.

(It was later found that the attributor was a direct competitor of Barnum's attempting to defame him.)

The plate version - no comparison: Smitty Poly Spandex all the way!  They stretch and breathe a lot better in warmer temps and are surprisingly solid in cooler weather. 

They stretch?

 

When do they stretch?  I've never had a need for my umpire pants to stretch.  Just curious.

There is a slight stretch to the material as they are 8% spandex.  Very similar to a modern golf pant.  In essence, they feel more like an athletic style pant than a dress pant.

The Smitty golf pants are leap forward in comfort, IMO. I did have a tailor shop put in a permanent crease, and that made a great difference in ironing them. But I catch them still warm from the dryer, and hang them up right away, I can avoid the iron.

The legs are a bit wide, on the plate and base pants, though. Not bad on the dish, but a bit floppy on the bags.

I have the Smittys in both plate and base and they are one of the best investments I have ever made for umpire gear. They breathe very well in the TX heat and the plate version slides and slightly stretches over my F3 Shins soooo smoothly. I do agree the base version fits more like combo pants around the legs, but I'm big enough I actually like how they're cut. Can't speak to the Davis version though...
