Coutos "Hands On" analysis of new strip

Hey Guys:)

today I received my new " Cool motion authentic" Portugal shirt. I am wearing it right now. As being a regular visitor to the asain region i will 100% compliment nike's new strip. People have bagged the green stripe in front of the shirt, but......... it is there for a reason !! cool air gets through , just wearing the shirt would only give you an idea why they call it " cool motion ".
Now there is an inner layer which seems to hug the skin and i suppose when you sweat is when the big diffrence occurs. the outer layer every one has seen with the "contreversial stripe" but that stripe alone looks good when the shirt is on. it acts as an air filter & will say when you are running , any air filtering through the shirts stripes around the inner layer has only a cooling effect something this shirt would only be good in hot humid climates. It is very confortable also and some may say it dont look as good as the previous strip ( & with valid reason , the other one is a timeless classic ) but I say once you pull it on you will see it in diffrent eyes !!

Now my ratings ( for those who give a rats arse about my opinion )

Looks- 7 /10 ( only my opinion)
Will it help the team in the conditions - Definately YES 10/10 !!
Cost - Too Much !!
Comfort - Very comfortable

My only gripe is it is a pain in the arse to fold !! better hanging it up

OGHow the hell are ya ??? :D , I ordered mine through www.subside.co.uk received it 10 days later !! BUT..... I learnt a serious lesson about Farcken aussie customs today :fero: !! if its wrapped in plastic or still has tags on them they will charge you GST & customs TAX on them !! Me & my bro got slugged $60 australian between just for 2 shirts !! why ?? cuses they were in the plastic wrapper :fero: Now 1 year ago we ordered from the same joint 2 printed shirts & when they arrived there was no wrapper or tags ;) and there was no charge of taxes;) so if you order request that they unwrap pluck the tags & send the receipts separate :) they are very trustworthy !!

I purchased the Nike T-Shirt, hat, and Portugal soccer ball. The shirt is next. I'm looking for one with Figo's name on it. Or Pauleta.

I have to agree with Couto. I felt like a fool paying $120.00 (Canadian), for mine, ( I bought 2, one as a gift). I had planned just to wear it to games, playing and viewing, but I've worn it several times now on morning runs, and it really IS a great exercise shirt.

You dudes have to get the mini football. It's the same colour as the jersey and is definately a keeper. Forca Nike! Job well done (on the ball that is).
