    Just found out another Japanese store (didn`t know about this one until a few days ago) that actually cares about gaijins and sell big GIs.

    I understand Vulkan is related with Koral

    Actually I like the Dumau model more than Vulkan but still some extra-opinions are welcome.

    if I'm not mistaken, Vulkan's have been around for a long long time. The name rings bells for me... dunno why :S

    I'm not digging all the patches on the Dumau gi. The Vulkan is a lighter version of the Koral gi. I think the Koral gi is light already and can imagine how light the Vulkan is. PLus I like the cleaner design of the Vulkan. I wonder how much it shrinks.

    The Vulkan is made by Koral. It has the same collar, but the gi material is much thinner and lighter. I have the white one. It's held up pretty well to use and is awesome in the heat. Because it's so thin and light, it's also a lot easier to grab. Mine shrank (they come a little oversized) to the size of my Koral (which didn't shrink at all).

    The gi may seem familiar because it's what Telles wears.

    The Vulkan top is a lighter version of the Koral. The pant's aren't that great though. The black gi top is to busy, I would like if if I depatched it.

    Ron, do you carry depatched Gameness gi's? I had a Gameness gi but couldn't remove the chest patch because it was sewn in deep into the collar!

    I had to take mine to a drapery tailor because sewing the collar back after depatching broke my needles. I think leather makers have thicker needles as well. So, if I buy a Gameness gi from you, can you depatch em and sew the collar back so it doesn't come undone while training?

    I'm considering the Vulkan gi as a backup, backup gi. Can someone tell me how much it shrinks? If it shrinks, does it come large so you shrink it to what its supposed to be?

    Vulkan is a pretty traditional brand here in Brazil.
