The sizing in this uniform will not be what you’re expecting. PLEASE you should definitely check our size charts to verify you’ll get a good fit as we wish to save you the trouble of doing an exchange. (though we DO have the most productive exchange policy in the industry!)
This can be a bleached white extra heavy weight “instructors” karate gi. It is made of long-strand 14 oz 100% brushed cotton canvas so It is much softer than traditional heavy canvas uniforms (we got tired of washing our uniforms for a year to get them to soften up – should you LIKE getting rubbed raw from a new canvas uniform, this isn’t the one to get).
This Piranha Gear brand gi includes pants with a traditional drawstring waist, reinforced groin, and heavy stitching during. The pants, jacket and sleeves all have 8 rows of stitching at the hem.
We were tired of the drawstrings and jacket ties calling it quits so soon. Ours are made of the similar heavy material as the uniform (but quadruple folded). We even have a nylon lining put inside the pant’s drawstring “tunnel”. So tightening them is much easier – especially when they get sweaty.
This jacket has “full length” or “formal sleeve length”.
These uniforms do generally tend to run just a little large, so if you are unsure of the fit, we recommend that you get the smaller size.
That is NOT intended for beginning students and we might suggest you believe a light weight gi before making an investment in this type of. It does NOT come with a belt because, honestly, you most likely have already got one if you are ordering this…
Extra heavy weight, soft brushed 14 oz (!) cotton – often referred to as “Iron Man” weight fabric.
8 rows of stitching for hems at the sleeves and pants – with reinforcements in high stress areas like armpits and groin.
Ideal choice for any student or instructor searching for super heavy pants for any style of karate. Great “pop” as a result of the 14 ounce fabric.
