I'm disappointed that they are sticking with navy. I absolutely loved their royal blue throwbacks.

I like that they're going Navy for the Royal.

Well they keep the singular W, these aren't the 1980's Bombers, and by starting their own era with these jersey that's fine by me!

I normally love the color navy in all contexts but for the Bombers I prefer royal. The shade of navy they're using with their shade of gold just kind of looks washed out and bland. I'll reserve my overall judgement until they unveil the rest of the uniforms though.

EDIT: After looking at a few different pictures of the helmet I think I rather like the shades of navy and gold they're using. I still think I would've preferred the royal though.

So many variations...

The Bombers really like to hang on to old logos for secondary use. After the lightning bolt W was introduced in 1995, it took a couple of years before they stopped using the old block W-and-football.

Now that they've gone back to the traditional block W, it appears that they're going to cling to the lightning bolt W for some unknown reason. I can't imagine that they're really going to move any merch with the old logo on it...

One of my favorite sets in all of football. Little dissapointed royal isn't coming back too (looks WAY better with the gold than navy does), but that's alright. I like what I've seen of the new helmet.

Yeah royal would have been better.

Seems one of the Bombers on the pic does not share this opinion, decided to play with no helmet!

Up close view of the new/old helmet - dark blue facemask, and dark blue stripe

They could have at least used their compressed primary logo to make it a little more modern looking but instead.... :sleeping:

Looks good. Can't wait to see the rest.

I found a pic of English golf pro Ian Poulter sporting Winnipeg's new away jersey...

The royal blue, especially when combined with that shade of gold, would become a very ugly sight over time if they were used full-time.

Also, saw something on the Als facebook which makes me think there is strictly no changes to logo and helmet. Don't know for the rest.

Thought so at first too but on second glance you can see the shoulder/back so it appears to be the leaping tiger logo.

Very interesting. I'm still holding out hope for sleeve stripes though.
