I know what you’re saying,
“Not another Shoyoroll review of a gi that we can’t buy.”
I get why you’re saying that but that’s not why I wanted to review this gi. I wanted to review the Shoyoroll Navy Skies since it was a GUMA only gi, and since it was made in a smaller quantity it should be of higher quality than previous batches.
Is it of higher Quality? Is the Shoyoroll Navy Skies GUMA Only gi of better construction than other Shoyoroll gi’s? These questions are what I wanted to answer for the readers of my site. So without further adieu, here we go….
Shoyoroll Navy Skies
I believe the main reason Shoyoroll released this gi was because of the huge outpouring from fans of the brand for the reproduction of their super popular “Grey Skies” Gi.
I was lucky enough to catch someone selling this gi for retail in person, and my girlfriend and I walked 4 blocks from the Houston Open to find an ATM to get the cash to get it. No second Market Ebay fees here!!!
First I wanna talk about the bag. I know that it’s just a bag but Shoyoroll has upped their bag quality a bit since the last gi I purchased that came with a bag which was The Compadre and Americana.
The first thing that stands out is they now have two straps to make a backpack for your gi or whatever else you’re going to put in it.
The next thing that stands out about the bag is the way the straps are put in there.
Strikingly similar to the way the chord is on your pants. Double wrapped in there to make sure they close tightly.
I know it’s just a bag but it’s a nice feature that a lot of people will overlook and I wanted to highlight it.
