Virginia Tech's Camo Helmet

On Thursday Virginia Tech announced a fundraiser to support the Wounded Warrior Project.

Head Coach Frank Beamer and the Virginia Tech Football team announced today a fundraiser to support the Wounded Warrior Project, through the sale of camouflage Virginia Tech hats. Hats will be sold for $8 each at the University Bookstore on-campus, the Volume Two Bookstore at University Mall, and the Hokie Stadium Shops in Lane Stadium. Hats can also be purchased online at The Wounded Warrior Project was created to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid as well as provide direct programs for the needs of injured service members.

The goal is to raise $25,000 for a very good cause. (For what it's worth, I'm buying one for myself and MRSTKP.)

Tech also announced a commemorative helmet to be worn against Bowling Green on Military Appreciation Day.

Unlike most of the Pro Combat uniforms, at fist glance I actually think I like it. It should pair pretty well with a maroon or white jersey. What do you guys think?





Not shitty.

A bullhorn, a bottle of whiskey and a dream.


Much better than that digital garbage.

better than i expected

but i like the digi camo alot, save the navy ones. gotta be hot as shit on the flight deck in that much blue.

that said i'm a big fan of canadian, australian and swedish camo. old job, i got to do a lot of joint stuff and saw others country's camo.

not a fan of new navy working uniform either

Although we don't wear them on the flight decks though, flightsuits or at least a "jersey" (turtleneck). Actually once underway nobody wears them, they switch over to coveralls.

I think the way VT supports the military is awesome and glad HD covered it today @

Looks like the Padres uniform

they wear every Sunday home game (military appreciation day). I believe Army football has gone all camo for some games as well. There are definitely much worse looks and any shout out to the troops is well warranted.

mixed feelings

Great cause to support, glad we are doing it. But why not orange and maroon camo? Why do we always mess with our colors? I just think they are special and like how unique they are. I think orange and maroon camo would raise even more money too.

It's just that between all the made for tv non saturday games and "insert color here" outs to benefit good causes it feels like a saturday in blacksburg where we play football in orange and maroonis a thing of the past. Maybe i am.just old

Please don't take this as me not being down for the cause. Totally not the case.

Exhibit A

Not a great look.

LOL. Yes, that particular shirt is awful. But I am pretty sure we could come up with an O&M camo pattern that doesn't look like it came from the discount rack in Walmart's sporting goods section!

MultiCam + VT

This is called MultiCam, a pattern designed by Crye Precision in Brooklyn, NY.


I guess it's better than the black helmet. And it's for a good cause, so ok.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Commandment #3

Thou shalt not speak ill of the matte black VT helmet.

I was excited when I saw they were selling hats, and then pretty disappointed when I saw that. Oh well, I'll buy one anyway
