    For us new parents - where is the best place to get USMMA or KP apparel online? I'm sure they have lot's of choice at the Academy exchange but to order online - any tips?

    against my better (superstitious) judgement I bought a fluffy, heavyweight KP sweatshirt. "Big Fluffy" kept the chills at bay through the winter. It has been washed at least twice per week since December so I can vouch for the quality. Even if an appointment for DS is not meant to be, our DD is intrigued enough to give KP a good look. "Big Fluffy" is a keeper either way.

    Here is another option, it is a fundraiser for the Class of 2018 and 100% of the net profits go to the Mids of the Class 2018. All items are embroidered, you select the year you want just before you check out.

    I think most of the online stuff is kind of ehh. Really the best place is the NEX on campus, quality Nike and Under Armor stuff. I know this doesn't help you now, but my suggestion is that if you want KP swag hold off and buy the bulk of it when you get to KP.

    Thanks! This is what I thought. Wish they sold online but we'll just have to wait.

    Parents, please support the class fundraisers, alumni assoc and parents associations as the profits go right back to help the Midshipmen. Check out www.kpparents.com - they have a partial list of fundraiser items sold by various chapters (GAPA link above is one). They try to keep it up to date but items and inventory keep changing. If there is something in particular you are looking for, send me a PM. Although not always obvious, many are available via mail order.
