The Carolina Panthers have updated their jerseys to the new Nike’s “Vapor Untouchable” model uniforms. The new lightweight jerseys have been designed with no panels on the front and fewer seams to allow for increased mobility and range of motion. There are a few minor cosmetic changes as the Panther head has been removed from the side of the pants, the dazzle cloth on the shoulders has been done away with, and the Panthers will wear a 25 seasons patch in addition to the NFL 100 logo on the collar.
“Guys had worn these uniforms with other teams or at the Pro Bowl and they came back and said how much they liked the fabric and how it plays – that’s the most important thing for them. It’s kind of like shrink wrap on you. Very form-fitting. But you can move well in it.” - equipment manager Don Toner
Before this season, the Panthers and Packers were the only clubs who hadn’t switched over to the updated templates.
