Jerseys

Long Sleeve tees are simply too hot for the summer for me, but I still want something long sleeved so I'm trying to decide between:
-Dye C9
-Empire 2012 Contact LTD
-Empire 2012 Contact TW

The Empire jerseys would be a bit more expensive than the Dye, so I'm wondering if its worth the extra $20 or so for the newer Empire ones. First and foremost I'm looking for venting and durability, anything else is just icing on the cake. The Empire jerseys I could try on at a proshop, but not the Dye so there's that too, and the Dye is only in two colors on HustlePB.

I already have pads and pants BTW.


Edit: And what about the new contact zero jersey? It looks light, but how well does it stand up to slides and dives? I dont want a jereey that expensive to rip on me.

Id rather get the one that perofrms better though. I just know the arm padding on the Empire jersey doesnt bother me like it does some people.

Since I can't see one of the C9s in person I'm just looking for some observations on either jersey.

I hate people that wear empire jerseys because there is so much padding. They are pretty solid jerseys though.

Yeah, theres someone at my field that has one of the Empire jerseys and an Eclipse chest protector. Its ridiculous, not even the super fragile marbs break on him without shooting a ton.
