    Hey guys, I was wondering on your experiences with the V2 kingz comp 450

    the gi in black looks absolutely awesome and seems like a great price/quality

    I took a look at the size chart and I would haven an A2L, me being almost 6ft2 and 170lbs and pretty long arms. i like my gi's without to much to grab around my waist etc but i do got some volume in shoulder also
    for example a tatami estilo A3 fits me perfectly except that the sleeves are just not legal anymore for IBJJF competition after 50 washes or so, so good for training & local comps

    my shoyoroll ring A2 has shrunk a shit ton, to the point it a little bit 2 small

    anyone who has these gi's and can compare?

    I have a blue Kingz Comp v2 in size A3L. The pants are a perfect length, the jacket, especially the sleeve length, is too big. I am 6 foot 2, 180 pounds and hate short sleeves as I like ezekiel chokes.

    If the gi fit me better, I would thoroughly recommend it as it is made well. I haven't tried shrinking it yet (if it's at all possible) as I don't have a dryer. I'd only try to shrink the jacket. I've worn it about half a dozen times and it doesn't appear to have shrunk at all, especially compared to other gis I've tried.

    A Tatami A2L was too short for me, a Fuji A4 has shrunk to be too short. Sizing can be a mess until you find a brand that works for you, but it's an expensive and disheartening game to play.

    So from my post you can at least ascertain you don't want an A3L jacket, but could consider an A3L pair of pants.

    Let me know how you get on with an A2L if you pick it up.

    I'm 6'3", 185lbs and have the A3L. The pants are perfect, the sleeve length is (as far as I know, first gi for me) perfect. It's maybe a little baggy around my midsection but it's only been through the wash 4 or 5 times.
