    I currently have a Vulkan and an Atama Gold and the Vulkan is very wide around the midsection, when I tie my belt the back ruffles up a lot and the sleeves are pretty wide also.


    I'm looking into another summer weave gi with a slim fit around the middle like Atamas and was thinking Gameness maybe because I heard that they are slim fitting and have long sleeves for someone who is a bit taller.


    So out of all the Gi's I've had here's what I found:

    Wide Midsection, Shorter Skirt, Wider arms (Husky fit?):
    Koral
    Vulkan

    Slim Midsection, longer skirt, tighter arms (slim fit?):
    Koral gold
    Sirius gold

    anyone care to add to this?

    Keiko Raca is the shittiest Gi you can but IMO.

    They wear out and look like they have been your only gi for years but in actuality the gi is practically brand new. The fit also sucks.

    Lucky Gis are SLIM if thats what you are into.

    How can you possibly call Koral a slim fitting gi?

    ^^^^
    length of gi is much shorter have to tie belt way over belly button, sleeves end inches above and not on wrists

    does not fix the problem

    and Koral is NOT a slim fit, I put that up on my first post

    exactly if they were not that tall and it fit correctly it would not be a slim fit because if tall skinny people wore them then the body itself would be baggy as well as the arms, yet the sleeves would not be long enough

    so you have not proven that it is a slim fit under this argument

    i wear a gameness platinum, its tough as crap because its a heavier weave and its snug to the max, so definately agree with the gameness models being a snug/ slim fitting gi. also the lucky's are cut really slim as well but are a bit pricier but are also really tough.

    FUJI GI - more Judo style GI top, But pants are good and slim around waist.

    VULKAN pants and Mundal 7 pants are very similar. Big around the waist. But both GI's are overal very gooooood. and my vulkan is so soft I can use it as pajamas ;)

    Gameness is tough like armor. GI jacked feels like a flack jacket.. ;) Going to war. And yes its very slim fit

    in my experience the HCK single comp is extremely baggy, the pants are great though. I replaced my sirius pants with HCK pants. but I had the old sirius pants with the draw string and I could not stand them
