They are great, I didn't think they'd be so much better than Reebok..... But I like them better.

I am not a big fan of the new jerseys, the elite feel like burlap stiff and hard, when you raise your arms up the whole back of the neck area goes up as well.The other issue is the players uniforms on field are not the elite jersey, they wear a completely different fabric. I never bought anything but authentics but this time around I am going with the Limited Jersey, just feels way more comfortable.

Do you like it compared to the Reboks? I have 40k in rewards points on my credit card to spend and the Nike Jerseys are only 11k. I have a Cruz and JPP superbowl Reboks and a blue Nicks and Manning. Trying to decide if its worth getting a Nike.

Don't want to be the bearer of bad news but I heard he's still holding out for #22 if it's available at the end of camp.

The Jersey looks sick though...hope he keeps the number.

The Reebok outlet stores are still selling Reebok authentics. Old stock that other places can't carry anymore. Inventory might be hit or miss but I was in one in south jersey today that had a ton of Jets and Eagles for only $35. They also has some Rolles and the alternate red Nicks. I plan on hitting a few more on the area to see if I can find more Giants ones. Might be an option if you don't need a Nike and want to save some money.

To the OP, I'm sorry to say (not trying to flame or attack) but the Wilson jersey looks really fake. I'm assuming you got it from one of those chinese sites that sell the jersey for $20-$30 at most. Definitely stick with the legit jerseys (footballfantatics or NFLshop) as they just look much nicer.

You can sort of tell it's fake also by the twill that these chinese companies use. The Nike material of the jersey looks nothing like that either.

As for the new Nike jerseys, I heard they do run big. My buddy says he ordered a medium in the 'nike limited jerseys', and he probably could of settled for a small. Personally I'm a large, and I was looking at a Medium jersey at Sports Authority last night and it still seemed like it would be a slight baggy. Might even have to settle for a small myself!

I know alot of people have questions about the jerseys. i bought mine as soon as they became available on the nflshop.com, i got my old high school number and my name, after retiring my Jacobs authentic jersey cause of his departure to san fran i decided i would rather have a jersey i would never have to retire; as i know that fan would never leave this team.

If you want the Limited jersey you can get them here. http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/?l=shop,pdp,ctr-nfl/cid-1/pid-516780/pgid-516776
"srry guys no JPP yet, but they do have cruz :) and they are out of stock of the away jerseys; only the home jerseys."

so i'll go over the new jerseys vs the reebok jerseys so that you have a detailed view before you buy your jersey.

1. My jacobs reebok is a size 48/ my Nike custom is a size 44 this was a good match. same length in the sleeves and the body, the Nike shirt itself is tailored so it fits to the shape of the body on the sides. i'm medium athletic build so if your a bigger heavy set person i would suggest you go 4 sizes up from your reebok size if you want a more snug look go 4 sizes down.

Limited jerseys won't be available on NFLshop.com / Giants shop until late August/ early September.

The shirts material is indeed water proof, light rain it slides off heavy rain leaves water spots but dries off quickly.
the NFL insignia is a gloss plastic material
the stretch zone area's are a more rigid un-soft material than the non stretch zone area's this is what creates the tailored fit.

Yeah RF i did a comparison pic of my jersey from the back, yours is indeed fake, the twill and the numbers give it away. not trying to put you on blast just thought you would want to know.

im probably going to buy limited jerseys from now on, got my elite don't need two. what is the height/weight approx of your friend. cause i was thinking i might get a medium as well for me and my girl but if your saying the lettered sizes are bigger then i would want to know how big in comparison to me. i had to go down 4 sizes for the numbered size and that fit well.

im 5'7 169 now. in the elite jerseys 44 is the way to go honestly for us, im contemplating getting a medium in the Limited jersey the chest is a 371/2-41 my chest is 40R waist is 32-35 i have a 32 inch waist so this is the best option the small is not too far off from the medium might fit more snug with less room for wearing a hoodie under as we all love to do when going to games in Oct-dec :)

small - 351/2-37chest
29-32 waist

So far I got burnt with a Dayne, Shockey, some would say Barber and a recent Jacobs. I got an authentic rookie Eli which I plan on framing if I ever get my lazy butt up to Albany to get signed, a Strahan and a Cruz. I wanna get an elite before the year is out but if I'm gonna shell out $250 I'm gonna play it safe and get another Eli and next year a limited JPP depending on what kind of season he has.

Also the limited jerseys are stitched. Everything is stitched too unlike Reebok's... from the NY in the front to the Nike signs on the sleeves. I actually prefer these because they're not as stiff as the elites and they don't got that awkward square on the bottom front. I still need at least one elite though.
