Another stand out feature of this gi is the comfort. It feels great to wear, it's breathable and extremely soft. I am not exaggerating when I say that every time I wear this gi, some one comments on its softness and comfort. Pajamas, blankets, and linen sheets are words that come to mind when talking about the comfort and feel of this gi.
The fit of the gi is a little baggy, which isn't too bad by itself, but there is three inches of material above the belt loops that make it even baggier. My legs are a little bit on the thick side for my height and weight so most a1's fit well. I think with this particular gi a0 would be more appropriate.
One issue that this gi resolves from its predecessor is the shrinking issue. The first gi had some parts shrink more than others. After over a dozen washes, the shrinkage was uniform. However, there was some discoloration on the gi.
Overall, this is a decent gi. It feels like it can withstand the wear and tear of being a daily gi, without feeling like a suit of armor.
