Seattle is a city of loyal fans. Whether our team is winning, losing, or even playing yet is kind of irrelevant; what matters is that they're ours. 

That's why, long before the start of the Kraken hockey team's inaugural season, several parties at a Ballard brewery got up to cheer for a random man in a deep-sea-blue jersey. That's why our first-ever preseason game in Spokane sold out. That's why we want to get in on the fun. Here's our favorite Kraken gear for casual fans and hockey-heads alike: We're all, after all, on the team.

Seattle Kraken Beanie Hat, It's in the Bag Crochet

$130

For the true-blue superfan, this handmade "beanie"—the understatement of the season—is crocheted by a former local (and current Kraken supporter) who grew to love Seattle sports after a stint working for the Mariners at Safeco Field. Handmade items, naturally, take time to arrive—but it'll pay off eightfold in stadium stares.

Men's Seattle Kraken Fanatics Branded White Away Breakaway Custom Jersey, NHL Shop

$200

Does it get more legit than the actual jersey? Go big (and, uh, prevent jersey theft) with customization, either serious or silly—plenty of fans go with their own last names; Macklemore got his emblazoned with "Goose Magee," the name of his new vintage mall on Capitol Hill.

Seattle Kraken Women's Racerback Hockey Tank, Bench Clearers

June 30, 2022: the last possible day of NHL playoffs. Tentacles crossed we'll be there; regardless, we want to rep the Kraken all year long. This moisture-wicking, jersey-inspired polyester tank is built for off-season cross-training (aka jogging around Lake Union). Check out the Bench Clearers website for the men's version, and the mesh shorts to match.

Fanatics Secondary Logo Cuffed Knit Hat with Pom, NHL Shop

$26

Image: NHL Shop

Ah, the secondary logo. To the naked eye, a simple anchor; to the trained local, the least touristy Space Needle graphic ever concocted. Embroidered on a cozy knit cap, it makes fandom look damn near fashionable.

Kids Seattle Kraken Teddy Fleece Zip-Up Jacket, Nordstrom Local

$55

If you're a parent in the age of the Kraken, it's only a matter of time before you get dragged to the Northgate iceplex for a round (and around, and around, and around) of skating.

Let's Get Kraken Sweater, Mimic Gaming Company

$30

While this unisex sweatshirt isn't technically designed with our hometown team in mind, that just means you're less likely to be involved in a "Who Wore It Better" situation with everyone else in line for poutine. Which means more alone time to think of additional Kraken puns.

American Needle Blue Line Seattle Kraken Hat in Seafoam, Zappos

$24

Image: Zappos

The Kraken's signature ice blue is perhaps the most universally flattering primary color of any Seattle team ("action green" may be fun, but it isn't doing us any favors). Stand out in the crowd with a cap that gives that design team the credit they deserve.
