The new Seahawks jerseys colors are College Navy, Action Green, and Wolf Grey. The modified color scheme mirrors colors of the Pacific Northwest wilderness. The jersey incorporates graphics inspired by northwest coastal Indian art. The broad chest graphic outlining the shoulders echoes the stance of a Thunderbird totem. The Seahawks mark above the heart honors the team. 12 feathers are also featured on each side of the neckline and the 12th Man logo is sewn on the inside back collar of the jersey.Jerseys are now made with a hydrophobic material that repels water, maintaining the jerseys "clean" look, making them lighter and not bogged down with water weight, resulting in better performance. Nike uniform is 20% lighter, 50% stronger and provides more of a shrink-wrap fit than previous models. Jerseys will go on sale on April 26, first day of NFL Draft, at the Pro Shop and on seahawks.com.
