What makes these "pro-combat" as opposed to just normal jerseys with bronze lettering/spartan logo instead of white lettering and SPARTANS on the top?
I guess I don't really understand what "pro-combat" means anymore, beyond being synonymous with "alternate".

These aren't "pro-combat" they're "hyper elite" both are technology that Nike uses in their jerseys.
The hyper elite jerseys:
Winning the NCAA title requires a ferocious attitude on the road. Nike's latest uniform, the Hyper Elite Road, grants equal measures of style and performance. The 3D-structured Dri-FIT pulls sweat from the body and added ventilation comes via the construction of the Nike Aerographics. Logos and numbers are applied via heat-transfer, making them as lightweight as possible.
They appear to be the exact same jersey as our regular jersey, with different lettering/logos.
The labels on both say "Nike Elite", whatever that means.
I'm a huge fan of our normal jerseys, but these should be pretty cool.
Pretty happy they brought back the bronze as well.
Players play, tough players win.
Nike Hyper Elite is a jersey style. Much like how Pro combat added the front mesh and lighter materials for football. Remember when we got the Nike elite a few years ago that added the mesh on the back with Beaumont Tower? Now everyone has something like that.
These are just special alts to break out the next version of the jersey. Hyper Elites came out last year with the grey alts that some teams had and the annoying neon tournament jerseys that teams like Baylor and Louisville had.
I still find it funny how they still sew twill numbers/letters on these "lightweight" unis.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
I prefer the silver unis.
Exactly what I thought while watching the Gonzaga-Butler game. I thought one of the equipment managers had screwed up and brought the practice uniforms instead.

Except Baylor and The Ville is Adidas. Those were bad.

My bad, I saw the Baylor women had hyper elites last year and assumed that the men did too.
Just looked it up and it seems like Baylor's apparel brand depends on the sport. Men's basketball is adidas, football and women's hoops are nike, baseball is UA.... Odd

Adidas does some pretty good bball unis, if you can overlook UM and KU. Under Armour too, I think it's a lot harder to make a bball uni look ridiculous.
I like KU's jerseys
The "bleeding" effect that Adidas came out with this year would be cooler if there weren't so many teams wearing it
The black neon/camo jerseys Baylor wore last year during post-season play were pretty cool, but the practically orange jerseys Louisville wore sucked
Louisville looked bright red on tv, but in person it was orange.
Someone should change the thread title from Pro-combat to Nike Hyper Elite. Nike comes out a new design for select schools like this about every other year. I believe it was about mid-late 2011 when we had the all white/mostly white Nike Hyper Elites, those were pretty slick. They must have just decided to change our color scheme to match the pro-combat unis.
These will be heat transfers, not sewn.
I think they look like practice jerseys, and ugly ones at that. I love the bronze, but I think it would look 100 times better if it were outlined by white, it's too dark to look good on the green IMHO. Also, the design is lazy and I don't think it looks good on any of the teams really, let alone using it on all of them.
I know that. I was referring to their opening game uniforms, which are the same template as this batch of uniforms, Nike HyperElite 2.0.
And when they do sewn-on lettering/numbering, Nike rarely uses tackle twill anymore, they use a lighter, stretchier material.
Swing and a miss by Nike.
nothing, just saw this in an article:
The Nike Hyper Elite Road Jersey ($120), Nike Hyper Elite Road Short ($80) and Nike Hyper Elite Warm-Up Hoody ($75) will be available at Nike.com
I wish the necks had something on them. Kind of like with some NFL teams
