Well, first things first; this is one heavy gi. Those who are looking for a lightweight gi that can be used in the summer can forget about the Hayabusa Goorudo 3.0.
The jacket has a 550gsm gold weave construction and is one of the best-made jackets out there. The stitching, reinforcements, and durability are second to none. This jacket will “survive” intense sparring and competition, without you having to worry about it ripping. It’s just that good.
With the pants, it’s the same story. The 12oz twill cotton pants are heavy, but ultra-durable and don’t restrict your movement. While the pants are not made from the same material as the jacket, they fit pretty well and provide a comfortable feel. Some people may have an issue with the fit around the tights, but it’s nothing a tailor can’t fix.
The jacket and the pants both come pre-washed and pre-shrunk, so that’s a major plus. With this gi, you won’t have the shrinking issues that you get with some other gis on the market.
