Great, love it.
Modern Chic Looking Gi!
So I received the Maeda Akashio Gi in the mail at work...and I was pleasantly surprised to see it came with a unique Samurai bag. I'm an A1 in all of my Gi's and the Maeda one felt a little bit big. No worries, I shrank it down to size and it fits me perfectly now. I"m very impressed with the way it feels when I wear it, the cool max lining with awesome artwork in the inside Gi makes this piece of armor stand out from the rest. I'm in love with the gold on white stitching all the patches and writing are in the right spots. I don't like when Gi's are to extreme and I don't like it when they are too plain....This Gi fits the bill in a classy yet sophisticated way. I've rolled in a few times and I've stayed pretty cool in it...its actually really comfortable to wear and work out in. If your looking for a Gi that is premium and like a little swag where its kinda hidden...I'd suggest the Maeda Akashio Limited Gi....its really is a beautiful designed Gi. I don't write many reviews however this Gi is top notch and ppl need to know! Trust me. I"m out.
Great Gi. Thick collar and lapels
Awesome gi and great customer service 2nd time buying and won't be the last.
Great product. It shrinked just a bit after the first wash, and now fits perfectly. The fabric is soft and comfy.
