Just checked out the "on ice" new reebok jerseys and the indo's are complete garbage compared to them! I am uploading pictures soon, but the reebok is sewn on, the fight strap is like on the edge 2.0 on ice jersey, and well they are made in, you guessed it, Canada...

Blown I would return that to EP, and let them know it isn't even close to what the players wear.

I want to, but there are no good alternatives for the money :noclue:

Where'd you see the on ice version?

I suggested this the other nite. I removed the post for a good reason which is very important (thanks for copying my idea though :whistling: )

I removed the suggestion because it's not a good idea unless the MG/Game Worn Program serial numbered tag was removed (and destroyed) if this jersey is to be changed. Life is unpredictiable at best, you just never know where that jersey could end up in the future and pawned off as something it is not. (there's a free population report you can look up the serial #, but it's still a risk because not everyone knows this fact)

You can wait to see if any GI jerseys will come out for this season?

The only real difference I see is that this years have the "reebok" on it instead of the symbol.

There are other GI from last year from 225-250 and size 56-58+ home and away.

I would rather get a replica over what I have seen of the new "authentic" jersey's myself as they seem rather crappy.

The indo-edge is still a great deal better than my replica.

Are you going to keep it? Try to return it an get something else? I saw Game Issued pre-season already listed so maybe you wont have to wait for a home current GI?

I dont know what Im going to do. I think Im going to at least email EPS and try to get a refund. My issue is this: The indo edge is still better than premier, way better, but its clearly not the on ice product, so why are they selling it at that price point? Its bullsh!t. If they charged $150 for it I'd be happy.

I don't think it is EP's fault, it is the NHL. They are the ones with the contract with reebok.

Because it's not always easy like that. EP doesn't have any kind of FAQ which is sort of dissapointing being that type of company.

Just guessing here from experience and an apparel seller. They will not take it back. That's pretty common among customizers as they do not want to be stuck re-selling something you had made up no matter who it is. EP is in the business of customizing, i.e. selling blank jerseys and customizing them, not selling already customized jerseys.

So I was wondering. I made my order to EP on October 27th. I did receive a confirmation email from Justin Kliebe. I don't remember he date however. They still haven't charged my card or anything some 3 weeks later. Is this normal?

If you are having a jersey customized then yeah probably. I don't think they have many people working there because whenever I call it seems to always be the same lady answering the phone and depending on what I ask I always get transferred to the guy who does the customizing and that's always the same guy, so they probably get pretty backed up with a lot of orders and few people to work on them.

This was just a regular jersey purchase. But yea I know they don't charge you until your item is ready to be shipped out.

Did you buy a blank jersey or are you buying a customized jersey? If it's just a blank jersey then I have no idea what the hold-up could be. Either way I would give them a call and ask for an update, their number is 815-877-8585.

Would you rather have an authentic 1.0 or an indo 2.0? EP emailed me back basically saying that people who have bought game worns and stripped them and re customized them are in jail now (LOL)

I have an email from them months ago where they told me I'd be getting an edge 1.0 and of course I ended up with an indo edge. Trying to decide whether or not I should press the issue.

Quick update. Jersey Express is selling indo edge 'authentics' for $189.99 +$49.99 for customization. A whole lot cheaper than EP. I emailed EP about this and I am hoping they will credit me or return the jersey for a 1.0. If they refuse I'll dispute the charge with my Amex.

EP is effectively ripping you off if you buy an indo edge from them at $250.

This is an email I got from a Jersey Express rep.

"The new 2012 jerseys are cheaper because they are made in Indonesia and the material is lighter so REEBOK lowered the prices. The 2012 jerseys are the jerseys that the players are wearing on ice right now."

We all know this isnt entirely true, but the fact that they acknowledge a difference in price and materials makes it even more alarming that EP is selling them as if they were the Canadian mades and pricing them as such.
