Nike created a special Pro Combat Uniform for the Crimson Tide’s appearance in the National Title Game. It looks like they stuck to the traditional uniform composition while making changes to materials and small tweaks to the design. Simple is best. The National Title Game is not the appropriate venue to take chances with wild uniforms. Below is Nike’s description of the uniforms. In honor of the BCS National Championship game, the University of Alabama’s historic crimson and white uniforms will debut a new highly innovative, lighter weight Nike Pro Combat Hypercool Uniform chassis that is built for speed. The Crimson Tide uniforms will be upgraded to include Nike Chain Maille Mesh — a lightweight, ultra-breathable material that emphasizes improved thermoregulation. This new fabrication is incorporated into the back and under the arms of the jersey for exceptional ventilation without sacrificing durability. The white-on-white look, embellished with crimson accents, creates the iconic, bold silhouette for which the Tide is famous. Alabama will also wear the new Nike Pro Combat Hypercool Speed Top featuring Nike Dri-Fit fabrication that transports moisture and sweat from the skin to the outside of the top, leaving the body cool and dry. Regulated for the weather with increased breathability and a streamlined fit, this revolutionary baselayer top features new innovative venting systems including laser perforation pods in a unique design pattern that help the body regulate temperature. It also features reinforced bonded seams as well as premium mesh underarm gussets for increased thermoregulation. The full, integrated uniform system also features strategically placed seams, pads and cooling zones that help minimize distraction and optimize protective coverage. Padding without the bulk offers optimal low-profile impact protection, specifically throughout the crucial “hit zone” between the knees and shoulders. Alabama will also debut the new Nike Vapor Fly Glove featuring seamless Nike Hyperfuse construction on the back of the hand, no-cuff construction to reduce weight and increase grip coverage, next-generation Magnigrip palm material for improved durability and grip, as well as pre-curved fingers for a more natural fit.
