    my first review of the keiko racca was under the name Gsoares and it was a pretty positive review. Now that ive gotten to give it some wear and tear i figured i would rewrite it. When i get home tonight i will also post some pics.(camera has dead batterys! going to have to wait.)
    Kimonos to compare it to - Mizuno, Atama Gold weave, HCU, soon dragao.

    The Jacket:
    Well its a gold weave, but it feels surprisingly thin. I cant say that i like it much. It is starting to fray on some spots on the jacket, i think this comes from a cheap stitching job throughout the material. Its inst bad at all, but a good gi shouldnt have this at all IMOP. I think this somewhat comes from drying it in a tumble dryer when im in a hurry. The cut is some what sloppy because the jacket doesn

    atamas fine, really no complaints about it. I like it..
    The shoulders are cut a bit big for me and im not a small guy by any means.

    Patches hold up great, looks good, no fraying, pants are cheap but good.

    Really no complaints

    Bump both of ya'll....lol
    I really like the cut of that Gi, patches were kinda cool. Pants were alittle heavy, but every was havin a hard time grabing them so it kinda worked out.
    My only problem with that Gi was how bad it shrunk after the first wash. To the point i can no longer wear it. (machine wash cold, hang dry)

    The cheap suit comment still has me laughin!
