    My first impression was that the Gi is very soft and also of high quality

    Fit:

    I ordered an A3. Instead of the Venum Gi I have, which had to shrink before it fit perfectly, the Sinister Gi's fit was and is just perfect.

    Construction:

    The weave is a Pearl Weave. The collar is very soft which is, I think, a con.
    There are embroidered logos on both arms and an embroidered logo on the right leg of the pants.
    The quality is undoubtedly top notch, the stitches hold together and I also don't see any issues even after a few months


    Pros:
    - soft
    - perfect fit
    - not that overloaded

    Cons:
    - collar is too soft and easy to grab


    Summary:

    I got the Gi from MMA Clothing, MMA Gear, MMA Shirts, MMA Shorts | MMAOverload.com for $139.99 and I am very satisfied.
    But in my opinion it's not a competition Gi.
    Nevertheless if you are looking for a Gi you want to wear in training this will be the one to choose.

    Thanks for the review!! Could you explain why you think it's not a comp gi? Is it the weight?

    it's too soft and too easy to grab.
    personally I don't like this in competition in training ok but not in competition. But it's just my opinion.
