Rain or Shine may have been swept at the previous Philippine cup finals but their reputation for being one of the toughest teams around the league and their virtue of self sacrifice helped them become one of the most beloved teams around. Today we take a look at it's current licensed replica jersey made by Accel.
Accel made two versions of this, one with Chris Tiu's name and number and another "Blank" one (same as their recent releases. I chose to get the blank one since ROS is more of a "no superstar" team.
The problem with the first ROS jersey by accel is that not only is it print heavy, but the laminated glossy vinyl print makes it easy to stick on humid storage. Accel has fixed that problem with a matte type print.
Print placements stay true to the original design (chest and waist design) However, additional sponsors usually seen in the game jersey are not present.
The fabric is made up of Dry fit material with a partial red collar design at the neck. Embroidered chest and nape patches and jock/ neck tags complete the placements. One thing that has it going for licensed replica jerseys is that they are lighter and more comfortable than game issued ones, which uses micro shiny fabric.
The Jerseys retail for Php 749.75 at your leading department stores and specialty sports shops, only on L/XL (chest= 48) size.
