We did uni's this year and the price was great and they look really nice. They are still pretty young in the lacrosse world so I look forward to seeing improvements over time (more options).

I just ordered a few of the mid and top level heads/shafts to see if my guys want to go that direction too. We went with Harrow on gloves and bags but I wasn't a big fan of the Adidas gloves and really like the way the Harrow gloves feel.

The cleats are great in my opinion although I talked with a bunch of our football players this week and they said they preferred Nike over Adidas. I have been wearing the defense lax mid all fall which has decent ankle support and a nice fit for my wide feet and skinny ankles. We did just put in an order for the RB619 Tunit (Reggie Bush with screw-ins) which are nice because they match our colors.

I'll post results once they are all tested.

The uniforms are really nice though! Check out http://adidasteamuniforms.com/ if you want to explore some options.

Def Nike over Adidas for cleats.

I like them and they are great supporters of everything we do, including our camp. Just like every other company. I'm sure there's a bunch of people out there that haven't had good experiences.


We've had nothing but good experiences with them. Our rep is very good and is a key conduit for support with other outlets. The complaints are of the same number and tone as you would hear with anything. I know some people have issues related to the quality of their goods however. Mainly sideline jackets.

In the lacrosse world they've been around longer than most.

Thats interesting because I only recently heard about the company (I am not a coach which I guess is why), but after using the uniforms for club, i was extremely impressed. You can basically completely customize your gear which for club is a real cool thing. Uniforms in and of them selves interest me because they say a lot about the sport and the team as a unit. I was just really impressed by Boathouse and would recommend them to anyone.

There's a few other online uniform design tools that we used in the past. Wave One and http://www.donalleson.com/uniform/warri ... /index.php for Warrior uni's. The later still needs to update for the new Warrior products that just came out. The other one we used I can't seem to remember, but it's a company from the North East. The name eludes me for some reason. Anyone have an ideas?

I like actual pics because I don't have the mind to really visualize an actual design (engineer in me) in that manner. Elevation has nice pics on their site and the others that I mentioned have some nice visuals as well.

Boathouse is fantastic. Somewhat pricey but they stand behind their stuff. Talk to your rep, a couple years ago I got one to give me a full year warrantee on our lax jerseys.

To the earlier post.... I get my RBK shafts later this week and will let you know.

AGREED. Boathouse is a generally underrated company when it comes to lacrosse gear. Their new uniforms are seriously very very cool. you can literally design your uniforms to sport ANYTHING. They are NCAA compliant so no worries there. everyone associates them with crew but seriously, their new uniforms are SICK. we saw them in MD at the Ultimate Lacrosse Tourney and I was totally blown away.

Most companies now give the customer the options to design their uniforms however they wish by use of sublimation. Companies such as Elevation, boathouse and more offer this technique

that is true, but a lot of companies that offer the customization option have compliance issues. they also dont generally turn around orders in 15 days. Boathouse does.

Our Adidas stuff gets done right away and takes about 10 days to come in. Harrow stuff takes a lot longer because we have to wait for artwork approval before anything goes into production.

All my past experience with Boathouse has been very positive.
