    Full Review has more pictures and is here

    Construction:
    The Sandstorm is a white gi with a 450g pearl weave jacket and 12oz canvas pants. The collar is thick, stiff and EVA foam filled. The gi has brown contrast stitching throughout.

    The collar is pretty thick. The GFG right next to it in the picture was the thickest collar of any gi that I've reviewed.
