    Just curious, description says its a honeycomb weave from a reputable manufacturer. I know Vulkan gis are honeycomb weave as well. Any other company use that weave?
    For $85.00 minus current disccount of 12.75%, doesn't seem bad as an extra gi for the rotation. The price is the same for the gi in white, blue or black.

    I train at cageside and cannot comment on wearing one myself but there are many people at the gym that roll with them. they hold up well and dont fade as fast color wise like other non gihugen name brand gi. the cut is a little bit baggier than i like because im a smaller guy but they seem to be great for the price and the pants are cut like atama and have around the same feel to them . The top on the other hand is pretty nice i would compare it to my addidas top which is in between a judo cut and jiu jitsu cut top. overall its a great quality gi for the price.

    I have that exact Gi and I love it, it's durable. I have been using it for over a year and it's never ripped or anything on me. Guys that I roll with have more expensive name brand Gi's and there have ripped. I wash and wear it atleast twice a week and have never had no problems GREAT GI!!!

    Yeah its a great gi for the price. It really didn't shrink much and a friend of mine has a blue one that he puts in the dryer after he washes it and the color has held up pretty well. He has been using his on rotation with an Atama twice a week and the atama actually is in worse shape.
