    So I recently received my SPRAWL Gi-Flex Pants. I was really looking forward to those pants. As I unpacked them my first impression was "God damn it they are fu**ing long", and they were. But if I would exchange them and take a size down the waist wouldn't fit me anymore. So I wrote SPRAWL. An this is what they replied:

    So I washed them two times at 75

    Woo, they look real cool.

    I wonder why they don't go the whole hog and make a Sprawl gi top to match the trousers?

    How does the mesh lining feel when training? Have your training partners made any comments about gripping the pants when training with you?

    due to the mesh lining you feel every time in every situation comfortable it's not so harsh on the skin
    yes they made a comment and I also had to notice that myself, the pants are very soft and easy to grab and also easy to keep up the hold

    you really can compare the pants with the pants of the sinister gi

    Really appreciate you guys posting this review, a training partner came in wearing these the other night and I was intrigued 'cause my jackets always last longer than my pants. Can I ask a couple of specific questions? Are they light? I'm a big sweaty bastard and any kind of heavy gi (HCK) is just unbearable. Also, with the sizing... I'm right in the middle but I've NEVER worn anything smaller than an A3. Is the size discrepancy so large that I should consider ordering the A2? Again, really appreciate you guys posting the reviews.

    Thanks for your words much appreciated. They are very light I would even say more breathable than the sprawl fight shorts! yes I am an a3 too and as you read they are even too long in size L. but it also depends on you if you have wide hips or not or a little bit of fat. If you are 34-35 inch in wist size I would order L and if they are too long just shrink them up!

    Just got mine for an xmas present. The waist is perfect just the length is a bit of a problem. Like you did I will wash them at a high temp then dry them.

    Quick question. How long did you put them in the dryer for and on what level? I just need an inch or two shrinkage in the leg length.
