I recently purchased a KI International traditional cut heavyweight Karate Gi.
The photo shows me wearing a size 5 after an initial wash in cold water and hang dry.
There was no noticeable shrinkage after this initial wash. When wet it appears to have a
hint of blue shade in the fabric but it drys to a brilliant white.
Here is the company's description:
"KI Heavy Weight Traditional Cut Karate Uniforms are designed for the people who appreciate the importance of a quality uniform. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced karate practitioners, you deserve to get the best out of your investment. KI Heavy Weight Uniforms are made of 100% cotton 13.8 oz. Duck Canvas with canvas weight of 380 GSM which breathes easier and will allow you to focus on your motion. This uniform is comfortable enough that they can be used for everyday training, but will also give you a “snap” sound when a sharp kata or kumite move is executed. KI’s high quality yarns are used for reinforcement stitching on the jacket and pants to offer strength and durability. There are 6 lines of stitching at the collar and 7 lines of stitching in the pants. This uniform will survive years of hard training and still maintains its shape and integrity. This Karate uniform does not come with any belts."
I am just under 6' tall and weighed 215 pounds at time of photo. You can see the fit is perfect.
Here is a video that shows the gi while moving, punching and kicking.
This Gi is extremely comfortable, not too stiff. It feels great and gives a great snap
when punching or kicking. The price is unbeatable even with shipping included.
