I love the top helmet, but I'll pass on the bottom helmet. Cardinal/red and yellow/gold with nothing else is just an ugly combo imo. I love Iowa State, but we weren't blessed with the best colors.
I created the bottom helmet for the game against Akron in '18 in memory of Celia, hence the gold/yellow. The use of red/cardinal along with it (and no white, etc.) was done to keep it all predominantly gold/yellow (her favorite color).

I agree that the top helmet and its adjustment of the I-State logo is the stronger design of these two.

I will be creating a version of the bottom one with a cardinal helmet / gold logo sometime soon.

Our black helmet should only be used for the BLACK OUT games, IMO. Well OK. I kind of like it but it needs black (and gold/white) accents elsewhere to make it work. Coach likes it so I think it's here to stay.

Wish we would have been WCW vs. ND. Would have looked a hell a lot better. It looked pretty good on many of the players, the last the last time we used it in 2018 vs. TTech. The black collar then actually helped it. I thought it looked unexciting and bland for the most part though. It does have the potential however to be one our best looks.

As for logos and such, I LOVE the I-State logo. ISU finally has a traditional looking logo. It should be the main-mark forever. Use the orr-nado for pride stickers or whatever.
Ageed, no argument from me. I am still posting versions of the Ornado on the helmet because I can and I like it as an alternate logo. I'm not willing to give up on it quite yet. Hopefully you can bear with me. :)[/QUOTE]
Sorry @WalkingCY, that quote of yours, by me, somehow got messed up. But I see you figured it out.! tn

I'm having too much fun.
It would be cool if they had detatchable modular inserts for the logo on the collar, under the chin. One game you could have the silver/black I-State, the next you could have c/g I-State as pictured here. This would be the place where I think you could do it, as opposed to the logo on the pant/hip. That one would get a lot more contact/hits.

Since we no longer have "Iowa State" or "Cyclones" across the chest anymore, I also think it would be better if the I-State logo on the front collar was a bit more pronounced too (somewhat larger). But I don't think I have the skills to do that to the photo.

I’ve seen a few logos floating around that I think would look good in white on a black helmet.

The two cy tornado blenders would look great in white on a bLack helmet.

I added the old 80’s Iowa state logo in as well. Would someone be able to mockup a black helmet with that logo in white?

Yes! I think anything like that would be using our unique nickname to its full potential. It’s tough to make one not look tacky but I like this one.
I was hesitant to do it because it is very new-age and not classic in any way. I did want to see what it might look like though.

I hate that piping. Feels like the CIncy Bengals and since have worn that crap- we lose A LOT.

I am more a fan of traditional striping
Thank you for your honesty. I think I feel the same way, just needed someone else to say it. I think that would be, or is the opinion of many, especially for the football uni.

Comments above.

I first made one (tornado stripe) just a day or so ago for the cardinal pant, but didn't want to post it as I thought it too far "out there" for my liking. The mono w/b/w was a good place to post it I thought. Your right though, it is probably best to stay away from that pant piping. I'll post this last one, just made it w/ a small amt of red in the tornado.. CyUni 2014 a9 CyPnt3Rd 15- w b w BlkfceWB RdTxtWtS.png
