With all the extra features they added, who's getting one?
I wanted to pass along an update to the custom gi Winter Edition. I have added a new gi package called the The Basic. This package will allow you to build a gi with options for contrast stitching, drawstring color, and trim work. Otherwise the gi will be plain. It will run 120.00 plus shipping.
If you have any questions please just shoot me an email. Thanks,
such a ridiculously awesome deal!
This is pretty cool. I would be ordering one if I didn't already have 4 gi's in my rotation and 2 new gi's in my closet.
Pretty cool. Any chance for a custom cut anytime soon
What is their fit like on A3. i have shoyorolls and tatamis and love the fit. how would this compare
SYR runs a bit bigger than tatami, killer bee is slimmer with slightly longer sleeves & shorter skirt. All 3 are quality gis but killer bee is a bit short in the skirt for me. There are detailed size charts on the site...
I did add some length to the overall skirt recently. It will probably fit people best with normal or smaller size torsos. If you do purchase one and it does not still fit after washing and dry cycle I will take the gi back provided you do not roll and grapple in it.
I am thinking about the option of allowing the client to add modify skirt length, wing span, and length of pants. Beyond that would be difficult to manage.
I just added a small Q & A with Mr. Bellavance regarding the Winter Edition and how he changed it from the Fall Edition.
Grapplers Review Q&A with Killer Bee
Gotta say, I love my custom.
KB's gold weave is quality I'm impressed with the pant quality for the weight. I opted for the durable cotton as opposed to ripstop and it's no where near as heavy as I thought it would be and crazy strong. Nice tapered cut to them too.
I always wear an A-0 as A-1s are too big and baggy on me. I'm 5'7 about 64 kg. I am very interested in getting a cutom winter gi. I was looking at your sizing chart.
Would an A-1 be okay? I was also thinking about F-1. I like my gis a little bit on the form fitting side. Thanks.
Hi, I think the A1 will be right on Target for you for both top and pants.
UPDATE: Tonight I will be updating the Winter Gi Pre-Order to include three new options.
1. Sleeve end to sleeve end dimensions.
2. Height of jacket from collar to skirt bottom.
3. Total length of pants.
I think this will encompass about 90% of what I have wanted to do with customization of the gi.
So what you're saying is... with a few clicks and inputs we get a perfect gi?
Wow... for the price and customization, you seriously can't beat Killer Bee gi.
I couldnt help myself, I ordered one. I think the ability to alter the 3 biggest problem areas in gis + ability to customize trim and contrast stitching color made it too attractive to pass up. I can't wait to get mine and post a review. . .
I am currently working on gi mock ups as to what the color schemes would look like...and gotta say, that buy button is getting more and more attractive.
Almost tempted to make a breast cancer awareness gi, but only if y'all can print "Hooray for boobies!" on a gi.
