How nice…a new season and a new jersey for the Winnipeg Jets! Adidas has taken over from Reebok for all league Jerseys and the Jets True North Shop and Jets Gear Store will have them available on Friday September 15th. If you’re like most JETS Fans you’ll want to add this to your game day collection , even though it’ll set you back by 200 Hundred bucks here’s what Addidas says about the changes!
They are Lighter – Featuring new cresting materials and construction technology, the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey reduces crest weight by up to 46%, while a single layer perforated numbering system reduces number weight by up to 60%, in order to deliver a new jersey that is up to 19% lighter when compared to the current NHL Jersey.They are Cooler – features adidas Clima® technology in each of the jersey fabrics to deliver breathability and enhanced performance. Combining moisture management technology and a streamlined silhouette to maximize air flow circulation with materials that are up to 133% more permeable than fabrics currently used on ice allows athletes to be cooler.They are Stronger – Constructed for durability, the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey fabrics are up to 27% stronger in burst testing and up to 72% tougher in abrasion testing compared to the current NHL jersey.
Minor changes see Navy Blue instead of Baby Blue collars…..still lookin’ good for jets fans with expectations the team will finally make the layoffs.
