Never have 'liked' the stripes. Call me a softball traditionalist, but what is wrong with plain navy?

(The upside is that in my region, there is rarely a need for a jacket in Championship Play)

Nothing's wrong with plain navy, but the old jackets looked like something out of the 80s. Not to mention the fact that they couldn't block a breeze, much less actual wind.

I miss the 'satin' zipper jacket (can't believe Mrs Okla21fan threw mine out a few years ago)

Did it go well with your Elbeco shirt?

I still have my old Elbeco...

You can always cut it off and duct tape it to your current shirt...

The jacket I have that has been my favorite (and yes, it can keep you warm) is the no zip pullover from about 12 years ago or so.

I also still have some old Elbecos in the umpire closet.

You have to be kidding, stripes and no full zippers!
Sorry but a lot of people do not like pullovers.
Also why don't they make a light jacket?

I agree. I do not like pullovers and I do not wear one unless it is really cold and windy.

I like a zipper because temperatures change, inside and outside of the jacket and pullovers make little, if any, allowance to adjust.

They do make a light jacket. It's on the same page.

Unfortunately, it's too light to be of any use when it gets down to 35 with 20 MPH winds. Those other jackets aren't worth a darn.

I liked the full fleece lined satin zippered jackets.........you had to hand wash them, but they were the best. I gave mine to a rookie several years back and replaced it with the poly lined jacket. It fit me better, but I missed the old look and feel. And yes.....I still have a few Elbecos in the closet. I can wear the poly lined jacket over all my gear where I had unfortunately outgrew my old satin..........

Thats why I gave it up......but it was a good sporty windbreaker I could wear in an area where I don't need a ton of jackets.........

I never did buy the pullover.......but Scott's temperatures are much colder than we fare here.

I still have and use the old 'diamond logo' full zip jacket I bought about a long time ago - still looks good and is comfortable - why change? Its waterproofed, and no one says a word. I wish ASA still made a sweater, but you really dont need that very much around here I guess - our leagues do no start until May. Besides, if its that chilly, I wear my hs sweater under my jacket! April can be chilly sometimes around here, so NYSSO has nice lined jackets like this:

,

and a nice warm sweater!
