So my KI order came in today; exceptionally good price BTW ($117 with Shipping). I order a size 5 (for your reference I'm 183cm- 98Kilos - long arms, very long legs). Most of the time I order size 5.5 but KI didn't have the half size. Out of the package it did match the wing span of my Fushida 5.5 icon. It also matched the body length including skirt. I haven't trained in it yet, but on the surface the sherdog assessment of the gi seems to be about right with one notable exception; gi weight. The gi doesn't stand in the corner, as was suggested by the reviewer. Its certainly not as thick as my Judoka privilege or Fushida icon and it has a bit more fabric motion. That said, its definitely better quality than the century gi that I have had experienced with. My only concern will be shrinkage since it doesn't seem to have the weight of my other doubles. I plan to air dry until I figure out how much it will shrink. My ICON and PRIVILEGE did not shrink at all-I tried hard because I have on size 6 Privilege that is a slight too big.
The pants are, before washing a pleasant surprise. I have yet to find gi pants that fit, until now. All of my previous judo pants are too short and much two wide (they could probably hold 3 of me). I always need to add fabric. These seem to fit. I'm stunned.
I'm really interested in how this cheaper gi turns out in the long run.
