Got the jersey. It's nice and colorful. Don't think it's as breathable as the primary kit (not made of plastic). But I wore it inside with air conditioning.

The rain jacket is very thin. And should be ordered a size down. But it repels water well, at least per my sink. Haven't been a torrential downpour with it. In hindsight I wouldn't have bought it. It feels more like a parka, no zipper in the pockets.

repelling water is a win. *jealous*

i remember taking my rain jacket for a spin the first time. it was raining but not a torrential downpour. went out to grab some takeout and within about a minute i noticed the fabric was turning dark from becoming saturated with water and a few minutes later, i was soaked through my tshirt. a few treatments of neverwet later, and it works a bit better, but still soaks up water in the spots i missed.

If anyone out there is waiting for a STH merch credit before buying something, please be advised that it is a Yankee Stadium merch credit, not usable on the interweb.

So the previous Parley kits had the MLS patch included when purchasing. These don't.

Saw Kitman on IG story with a bunch of patches, so looks like that's the one difference between on field and replica. Disappointing from adidas/MLS.

Seems to go along with the movement to be more like overseas leagues/clubs where patches will be additional/extra depending if you want league, cup, or champions league, etc. Sucks, but not surprised.

that sucks. the very least they could do is let you choose one of a couple that are included in the price and maybe pay a little extra for special ones like champions league or something. not that anyone would want a scotiabank CCL patch that can't stay on lol.

They'll end up selling glue outlines to mimic showing that the patch was there. More authentic than actually having a patch lol

Apparently there's an entire dumbass contingent driving up ticket prices and making Alan Jeffers pay more than he should.
i looked at the thread and it seems the tickets are like $70 to go to a game, im assuming he is looking at like stubhub or something. I mean their team is doing well but not even the league/ other fans are not really hyping them up (even though they made the conference final) so i dont know what bandwagon is he talking about.
