Denver should be rocking brand new Warrior TII Lacrosse Helmets tonight at Loyola and these things are just plain old awesome. ALL kinds of awesome, in fact. Both helmets are awesome. Did I mention they got TWO new helmets? Well, they did.
They’ve rocked white helmets all season so far. The facemasks were an oxidized gold version. Very cool. But these are a step up. In a big kind of way. Their new facemasks are brass. They can’t be anything else. That has to be brass. Unreal. And while I don’t love digital camo, when it’s this small, it does look pretty sweet. Especially from a distance. During a game, it will look great. Back to the brass, it still looks unreal.
Now, on to the not white helmet. The lid to rule all lids. It’s gold. And Denver’s reddish maroon. It’s both colors. Warrior brought back the two-tone helmet. WOOHOO! I loved that look. It was fantastic, and I was very surprised to see that college teams didn’t all jump at the chance to have versatile, two-toners. I call them crazy. The gold helmet is beautiful, and provides balance between the flashy mask and modern helmet striping detail of Denver white lid. This is like a helmet from the 1950s, if it happened in the future. Aesthetically, it’s almost perfect.
