    Hey guys,

    Another one of my in depth gi reports, this one is by Masaru - a new brand who sponsor Braulio Estima, Victor Estima and Roger Gracie among a host of others.

    Full report here:
    MEERKATSU: Gi Review: Masaru Fight Co, BJJ Kimono in blue

    Pros:
    1. Reasonably light
    2. Sensibly cut and minimal shrinkage

    Cons:
    1. My sample had poor quality control
    2. Did not like the patch and logos

    Some photos:

    The patch design seemed to really divide people...what are your thoughts?

    Thanks for the great review. Its awesome that you are honest with the construction issues

    How does the weave compare to the Komodo in terms of softness and breath-ability (does it get hot)?

    Hey Rellik - the Masaru is thinner than the Fushida komodo but funnily, not as soft or pliable. however, being thinner, I feel a lot less hot rolling with it compared to my Komodo.

    Supergrappler - the gi is made in China. I think I did write that in my report.

    Heh, I made sure I pulled that belt right down to my hip bone, unlike my previous efforts.
