New Season, New Gear...

Well I tried searching this topic and didn't have any luck. I remember posting something like this last year. Never-the-less, the new season is almost upon us... anyone have any new gear they are waiting to trying out?

For me, I've added the Honig's Pro-Soft shirt. I almost got a Dolfin whistle, but my previous posts on here got the better of me.

Are you getting a new shipping crate to bring with you to games?

I was tempted on the dolphin, but got some fox40 CMG whistles instead. The mouth guards do not show the teeth marks as readily. The down side is that whistles with teeth marks, just like pencils with teeth marks, tend not to be borrowed.

I've got football gear to deal with now, but I did get a pair of New Balance running shoes I'm going to wear next hoops season. I was going to break them in at a local clinic a few weeks ago, but the clinic got cancelled. So, I'll get them on the floor soon enough.

Before the season starts, I'll have a few side panel shirts, enough pants to fill out 4 or 5 full unis, and at least 2 extra pairs of under armour tights/shirts and briefs. I probably need a few more pairs of socks. The underwear stuff lasts for about 2 years max on my schedule, I've found. So I just keep adding small amounts each year. Whistles and lanyards are a dime a dozen. I pick up 3 or 4 each at a time.

The big purchase this year (for football initially) will be the roller bag. Last year, I got by with an older duffle style but I need more room and want something to hold up to wear and tear a bit better.

By the way: any recommendations on a roller bag?

No, I saw your bag wasn't very full last February. Therefore, I'm hiring your bag to carry the rest of my stuff! Looks like I'll be seeing a lot of you this season!

Go to your local big box store and buy whatever's on sale.

Yes, you might have to replace it sooner than you would a "name officiating brand" bag. But, it will cost less than 1/2 the price (and in my experience you won't replace it twice as often).

I agree with Bob about the bag. I may try to replace mine this year.

Just a question. What's the deal with the wide side panel shirts? Does anybody really think they look that much better than a normal shirt? Personally, I think they look kind of odd. You've got 1" stripes all around the shirt, except for this HUGE stripe right under your armpit.

Not necessarily. There are many officials that do not wear them.

Peace

How do you handle it any other time? You go out and work the game. I rarely ever see three officials with the exact same shirt anyway. Not sure why we would make a big deal about it now?

Peace

Well at the high school level, we don't have that issue, But I would think at the collegiate level you at least want to look uniform. It's just a question, Don't bite my head off.

Didn't mean to bite your head off. I'm just wondering what you think could be done about it? How would you suggest "handling" it?
