Every summer it seems like the goal of most lacrosse players is to pick up as much sweet custom gear as possible and play in a ton of lax tourneys all over the country. I’ve been scouring the internet for some of the sweetest gear available and this post will showcase just a bit of what I’ve found so far… enjoy!
We already talked about Maverik’s Elite Team uniforms from last week in Vail. They looked good, played very well and won the whole thing in their first year out in Colorado. We’ll give you one more look though…
Also out in Vail was the Brine/Brine Elite League team made up of mostly East Coasters located in the Boston area. The Elite League has been running in Massachusetts for decades now every summer and I’ve played in the league 5-6 summers. The quality of play is high and intense because let’s face it, that’s just how Massholes roll. Brine went with a really classic look and pulled it off with great success.
Another team that was out in Vail was the Jagermeister Masters team and these guys always look good. 2010 was no exception. I’m hoping I might get to start playing with these guys next year as I turn 30 on Friday July 9th. I am now officially an old man. Maybe I can keep my youthful appearance if I start rocking a hockey helmet. Who knows?
We’re also seeing new lids for some teams and the visual revolution continues. Cascade has modified their extremely popular helmets and they now feature a spoiler/tail that seems to offer no real advantage. The helmets still look and function fantastically and tail or no tail, Cascade still has the helmet game on lockdown.
Brine must be trying to get into that echelon of helmets because they are showing off a two-tone version of their top helmet for Team Canada. I am jealous and want one of these lids LIKE NOW!
We’re also seeing some interesting moves being made with chinstraps being dyed and painted. The Woozles are dyeing pink chin straps and I think I just might pick up a new white chin strap and dye that bad boy as well. For my first project I’ll probably try to mimick what can seen below but was done with marker… GREAT IDEA and the execution will come eventually!
I’ll be back with more sweet summer gear as the season progresses. With tourneys like War on the Shore, Placid and number of other tourneys still to come, you can expect to peep a lot of fresh gear in the coming months. You can also try to find some Wandmagico gear but good luck! I won a tshirt in a Twitter contest so they’re definitely worth a follow. The gear is produced in extremely limited numbers and that only makes me want it more.
