the shorts on the other hand....i don't really like the material that much but the waistband is kick ass. for shorts i prefer my sprawl s-fusion they have the material of the v-flexes (also own) and waist band of the hayabusas
I have the shinguards, bag gloves, and shorts. Shinguards are great and very similar to the CSI grappling guards I also own.
I like the bag gloves, which I got very recently. I have decent sized hands (I wear a large in most brands, occasionally going with an XL), and they are more compact than I was expecting. They're a bit tougher to get on and off than traditional hook n' loop gloves, but they provide superior wrist protection. If I had slightly longer fingers they wouldn't fit me. As it is they are just snug.
The shorts feel very different from most other brands, but I like them a lot. I have lots of shorts and they are one my favorite pairs, second only to my Familia Gladiatoria shorts. The new grey Shiai shorts Hayabusa recently put out look awesome and I'm sure I'll be picking up a pair soon.
