 One thing that I did notice after washing is that the stitching in the left armpit was a little sloppy.  Completely unnoticeable while wearing it and I doubt it will effect the durability of the gi but it is something I’ll be paying attention to over the next 90 days for my follow-up review.

 

Test Drive:

          Fit was very good.  I’ve drilled in the gi and few times about spent about an hour rollling with it so far as well.  I have a personal preference towards light gis and this gi is the lightest that I’ve worn so far.  The ripstop pants are great and an unexpected benefiti of the ripstop collar is that grip breaking seemed a little easier than usual.

          Because of the size I did not dry this one at all and unfortunately there was still some shrinkage.  For the top it didn’t make much of a difference, unfortunately the pants lost a lot of length.  For most this probably isn’t an issue but at my height I need all the length I can get on the pants.

Pros:

  • Great price, just under a $100 here
  • Light and comfortable
  • Excellent service
  • Good looking gi and fits the slimmer athlete

Cons:

  • Sloppy stiching in the armpit
  • Pants shrunk quite a bit with hang dry
  • A few extra loops for the drawstring would be nice

Final Thoughts:

          This is an excellent gi for anyone on a budget.  The features, look and comfort compare well to gis that are much more expensive and who wouldn’t rather but their cash into training?  For me personally, I appreciate that Shakib sent this to me for a review and I’ll be wearing it whenever possible and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this gi to my training partners.
