Product Review :: Intrepid Sportswear Basketball Uniforms

Intrepid Sportswear is a Seattle based company that claims to have "the best unis in the game".  I get the impression they might be on to something.  The company recently submitted a set of rather large(they were made for an NBA player to wear in a photo shoot) uniforms for us to review.   My first impression was that the uniforms are good looking and durable.  The kind of uniforms that I could see my frosh team wearing in 10…
