No it isn't a thread wondering what tablets people will be taking on away days next season.

Anyone revealed their new kits yet?

That's right mate but we have to try and look past that and realise they are a huge company

I can see how that Barrow one might be rather polarising. Maybe it’s one of them that looks better in person but from that pic I’d be cancelling the contract with Puma.

We are almost invariably late releasing ours. Anticipate our yellow away one will be next seasons third kit which is what we did with the black one this year. Would expect we’ll probably return to black and white though.

it's fine - it will upset a few - but it's a modern design and the dark blue bits are actually a bluebird... it will grow on people.

Puma usually make decent kits, but that Barrow one is horrible.

Not expecting much from ours either, we are still in contract with Errea and their cheap shit, so let’s see what monstrosity they produce this year.

We've just announced a two year deal with Errea after dumping O'Neills who were hopeless, crap quality?

Errea do ours as well. To be honest never had much of an issue with the quality. How they have done their sizes in previous years has been a bit awkward. A couple of the designs have been questionable such as last years home one but then that was the club who requested that. A huge upgrade over our other two most recent manufacturers Sondico and a company called BLK for a year who were fucking appalling.

Good spot. I think it's alright. Seems fancier designs are the modern thing. Plus Puma produce those shirts with MAN CITY written across them.

BLK were shite. They're a rugby company. So were PlayerLayer who made field hockey kits originally.

Aye we had BLK too, could never get any stock off them, constantly delayed, designs were awful and the actual quality of the kits themselves were piss poor.

We used to use Nike and as generic as they are, proper reliable, good outerwear gear (coats,jumpers,hats) would take them again over most we've had.

Not really arsed about kits - but how, after all these years, have we not found a 'Barrow blue'?

Same, I loved the designs BLK did for us but our players had the previous seasons training gear for ages! Pope ended up kicking off on twitter at them asking when he was getting his new training shorts!

I like Errea, we get our own designs rather than templated (bar the 19/20 when we had the same design Carlisle had the following year due to the takeover we had).

Quality is usually ok but must go up a size on normal as they are a size tighter than usual!

I think we will keep the caramel one maybe, although oddly we haven't wore it for months! Think it was Rochdale last time it had an outing!

Assume the home will change, and probably go back to White/Black traditional colours rather than a white/gold number (although it does look good).

Never know what we will get with the away one! We've had Black, Green, Purple, Gold in recent seasons.

I think Adidas made our best kits. Not been a massive fan of Puma personally even though some of the designs have been quite nice.

I buy a shirt now and again, but hopefully being with a reputable brand like Puma will bring plenty of casual wear, hoodies, waterproof jackets etc, which will be popular and brings in money, which is the aim of the game at the end of the day.

I've actually loved some of our errea training and travel gear recently. Its far removed from the crap we used to have!

We've actually been quite clever in our goalkeeper replica shirts are all short sleeved now and sold tons of them. This season's Purple and Gold one is a beaut!

I did hear a rumour that we'd be keeping our kits for this coming season, but then we've had them on reduced prices of late so I imagine someone somewhere has changed their minds on that one. Can't see it being massively different, there's only so much you can do with blue/black stripes.

Absolutely awful. Cheap shitty material. The club badges look like they’ve been put on with a pritt stick. After a while they fall off. Then there’s the sizes. You could buy a medium home shirt and think this fits well, then buy a medium away shirt and it’s a completely different size.

Just terrible overall. I won’t buy anything errea again.

That is truly horrendous and I'm struggling to see the bluebird.

Looks more like my 2 year old Grandson has found my paint in the shed and splashed my white t-shirt with it

Turn it 90 degrees anti-clockwise and there's a wing over one shoulder, a beak pointing over the other.

It only works if our players are lying down - which is actually quite a lot, I suppose.

Our badges are sewn into the fabric?

I still can't fathom why you did'nt play in yellow ? I don't get this "away" kit nonsence-- You should always strive to play in your teams colours unless you clash.

That could be the case this season for us. I wouldn’t know as I haven’t bought an errea shirt since 2 seasons ago. Tbf they did look sewn on, they even put stitching around the badge for that effect, but in reality they were stuck on and it was only when they fell off that this became apparent.
