As the 19th franchise of the MLS the Vancouver Whitecaps have finally come into their own, and this new Vancouver Whitecaps away jersey celebrates it. I’m pretty sure this jersey will be an instant collectible for all those die hard fans of the white and blue as the inaugural kit of any club would be. Who knows, in 200 years, maybe they’ll be as coveted as an inaugural Manchester United jersey.
The kit is made by Adidas and clad in the deep ocean blue that has become iconic of the Whitecaps and the city of Vancouver. The jerseys trimmed on the shoulders and at the neck with white and it stands out well against the deep blue background. These colors are meant to symbolize the snow capped mountains on one side of the city of Vancouver, and the deep blue northern ocean on the other.
The jersey itself is made of a soft synthetic fabrics with Climacool technology built in to it. This act to keep your body cool and wick moisture away during hard exercise. It also guarantees a degree of durability meaning you can go play a match on turf in this shirt, take if off and wash it, and it comes out clean a vibrant. I wouldn’t recommend putting in the dryer though, the sponsor logo is heat affixed, and may peel after a few runs through. The crest, which is embroidered, will never fade or fall off, and look classy against the deep blue of the jersey. Overall, I like the look and feel of the jersey and if you’re a big Whitecaps fan, this is the shirt for you.
