Fantastic value compared to authentic
on June 27, 2013
I'm normally the guy that likes getting the authentic jerseys. I own several authentic NFL jerseys to show for it and love them for the detail, construction quality, and materials used. So, when I finally decided to purchase an authentic Lakers jersey, I had the same high expectations. After all, the authentic jersey was over $200 and the swingman was far less.
However, when I got the authentic Kobe Bryant jersey, I was completely unimpressed.
The materials of the new Revolution jerseys by Adidas weren't very comfortable and were a tighter fit. I'm sure they have better technology to wick sweat away and fit tighter to make them more player friendly but for you and me joe fan, not what we're looking for as much. I wanted something more comfortable that I could wear to games and such.
I returned the authentic and decided to give the swingman a try. I was far happier when I received this one. The materials are softer and completely different from the authentic. The construction is still very good and the cut is roomier without being obnoxiously baggy. Given those things and the fact that I paid far less for this version, I am extremely happy with this jersey and highly recommend it.
