Awesome Christmas present!

Well, for me anyway! My lovely wife listened to me this fall when I found this jersey and got me one for Christmas. I got some neat stuff, but this was the best.



Due to my military affiliation, it's perfect. I can't wait for the weather to warm up enough to wear it!

Great jersey!

Our LBS has these and the shorts, but then we are next door to Ft Campbell and the 101st Air Assault.

Well Tom, even if they did do digital camo, I don't think I'd wear it. The object is to be seen, right?

Besides, it'd be a pain to have to do name tapes, rank, and qualification badges!

Not really, a good vector graphics image could be made and a full sublimation Jersey could be printed including all that. Of course, it might get a bit pricey and every time you got a new bit of tin or pretty little ribbon or a promotion, you'd have to make a new Jersey.

A Class A Jersey would be pretty cool as well. Full decorations and all honors?

Ya know, if you had told me you got an army bike jersey, I would have thought it would be ugly, but that jersey is awesome. I'm honestly jealous. Very pretty.
