I've seen a couple of posts regarding this Gi. Since I've had mine for a year now, I thought I'd give a review....
Cost $160 Canadian (at the MMA Expo) Now selling for $199 Canadian from HATASHITA.COM
I'm 6'3 220lbs and chose an A5. Even though the Gi is pre shrunk, it would still shrink a bit in a hot wash and a dryer cycle. This Gi is made for bigger guys. It fits well on the shoulders and the skirt is the perfect length. I like a short skirt so that I can pull it out for those chokes.
It's a doulble weave so it's super thick. The collar is made of vulkanized rubber that dries quickly. Everything screams durability on this Gi. All the high stress points have high wear patching and all the seams are hidden in the pants. The pants is super soft but feels very thick as if you're wearing 2 pairs of pants.
Super Cool Features:
There is a rash guard built inside the back of the Gi top. The gi feels super super soft on your skin and the rashguard wicks away the sweat. The crotch is made of spandex for all those crazy guard players. I find it very comfortable and easy to play an open guard game. My only complaint with this is that when your opponent has long toenails (they should be trimmed) it can easily catch and rip the spandex. I had mine sewn once because of this but has held up ever since. I would want a higher quality stretch material for the crotch area.
I've had mine for a year now and done some heavy rolling as well as tournaments. It's held up great. Not even a thread has come loose. If you want a heavy duty training Gi, then look no further.
I wold buy another one of these in heartbeat. Even at the price, you can't beat the comfort and durability. You could always opt for the Gold Weave (for competition use) at $125 CAD which is pretty reasonable. But if you want a tough, durable and comfortable Gi. Buy a Reevo.
