jersey is good, way better than last year’s. purple pants we can do without, and the matte finish helmet sucks

I love the matte helmets, but I wish we’d just gone to the throwback uniforms these seem to have the stupid “Nike collar” with all the stripes that I hate.

Its going to take me a while to get used to the matted helmet…
I do not read "overwhelmingly positive" posts for matte helmets.

Did the fans actually have a voice in this misguided decision?

Hey look! The curve on the arm piping looks just like the bow of a Viking ship!!

Love the purple pants, but the numbers look dumb. Should have gone with throwbacks from the mid-60's with the gold outlined numbers and gold striped socks. Those uniforms rocked.

I think they look cheap - there's no stitching or artistry which makes them look like something special. Instead they look more like a HS jersey, or a cheap option at a souvenir store. I don't like the matte on the helmet clashing with the attempt at "old school" in the jersey. Ugg - what was wrong with the others again? Whatever, send Nike back to the drawing board!

I agree on the purple pants -- wear them on the road with the white jerseys. The white-on-white road-game look is too passive for a hit-em-in-the-mouth sport like football. Baseball can get away with all white; football uniforms need a visual contrast.

Purple pants with the white road unis are back, FINALLY! ALWAYS hated the all white roads.

I agree with zataway, these uni's suck. After all the hype and we end up with garbage. The matte helmet is the first thing you notice and that's about enough to make you turn away. The high school analogy is perfect as they just look cheap and uninspired. I guess I was expecting something new and exciting and instead we get this. I still think the late 90's uniforms were the best looking with the stiched on numbers with the gold trim on both the body and on top of the shoulder pads. The sewn-on norseman's logo on both sleeve really finished off the jerseys. Bottom line, these are bad.

My big wish for the Vikings new look was for the helmets to be similar to what I saw back in the late 60's. That's when I fell in love with the Vikings for the first time watching them play in snow on T.V. I, really, can't tell by the photos how the helmets really look 360.
