That Reddit poster and I have been talking to each other a LOT about these...there's even more to the design than he's saying. If he's right, this will be the most radical uniform departure we've ever seen. It's just nuts.
Then he is lying to you. That is not how Nike prototype helmets or most anything. They don't take pictures like that of prototypes, they only use physical samples that are under lock and key and have handlers.A guy I know sent me that helmet claims it was in the conversation as one of the prototypes. He mentioned the copper type color could be what people are talking about when they mention orange. Also he did talk about the desert cardinal but if that was the case I would have thought the logo colors would have reflected that. He said they had one version of the helmet with a silver/chrome face mask as well. I’ll see if he will send it to me
