We are in the market for new uniforms this year. I have several samples and right now we're leaning towards Riddell's High Performance Motion Fit jerseys, which are the super-tight, "like the pros wear" style. Does anybody have any experience with this jersey or the super-tight style in general? I love the idea that it will be virtually impossible to grab us by the jersey, but worry that it may restrict movement or make it hard to breathe. Thank you for the help!

Imagine how it felt weird the first time you wore compression shorts. Basically the same thing. However you'll need to order across a broader range of sizes because you can't just "make do" with an XXL on a kid who needs 4XL. He'll asphyxiate!
We switched to Riddell Motion Fit jerseys (with no sleeves) 3 years ago. We just bought a second set of these jerseys in another color. Great jersey! We couldn't be happier with the product.
Only difference I noticed this year was that the jerseys seemed even stretchier (which is a good thing). I think I recall our sales rep saying they changed manufacturers? I probably would have bough a a few jerseys a size smaller this time around knowing that they are stretchier, but not a big deal.
We went with ProLook Dye Sublimated Jersey and Pants, the team name, numbers, logos, even decorative tiger stripes are all dye sublimated in with no embroidery or screen printing, Makes for a very stretchy and breathable jersey. This first year so don't know how they will hold up yet.
We've got the ProLook Dy sublimate, and the jerseys are tight but pretty true to size, they do stretch a lot, partly because being dye sublimated the printing isn't there to,tighten it up. However the pants run small, at least 1 size in some cases 2 sizes small. We got guys that wear a medium in Russell pants wearing L or XL,. We ordered 85 pairs of pants originally and they didn't tell us about the fit, ended up ordering 45 more pairs of pants and just had to pay shipping. At first they went back and forth but finally came thru with a workable solution for us.
