Jersey Materials

Over the years, NHL jerseys have been made out of a wide variety of materials. Different materials show wear differently, and materials vary based on factors such as team tradition, price and durability. The following are the three most common materials used in modern NHL jerseys.

Air-Knit Air-Knit

Air-Knit material is extremely popular material in use by most NHL teams today. It is lightweight and breathable, so it is comfortable for players to wear. It is also fairly durable. Different manufacturers have made different versions of this material, but they are all fairly similar.

Ultrafil Ultrafil

Ultrafil material is used for game jerseys by a handful of NHL teams, including the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators. It is a very thick, heavy and durable material that can stand up to a lot of abuse. Several NHL teams use practice jerseys made of this material because of its durability.

Dazzle Cloth Dazzle Cloth

Dazzle Cloth is a thin, shiny material that is typically used for jersey accents like trim and striping. It is not nearly as durable as some of the other jersey materials, and it is also not breathable. No NHL team's jerseys are completely made out of Dazzle Cloth.
