    This is a white extra heavy weight "instructors" karate gi. It's made of long fiber 14 oz 100% brushed cotton canvas so it's much softer than "traditional" heavy weight uniforms.

    This Piranha Gear brand gi includes pants with a traditional drawstring waist, reinforced groin, and heavy stitching throughout to ensure durability. The pants and sleeves all have 8 rows of stitching at the hem. It is truly a "top-of-the-line" uniform.

    We were tired of the drawstrings calling it quits before the uniform. So these drawstrings and jacket ties are made of the same heavy material as the uniform (but quadruple folded) so they won't tear after the first year.

    The jacket has shorter "work-out" or "tournament" length sleeves (4/5 length) rather than full length "formal" sleeves - specifically for comfort and convenience. That means the sleeves will ride a couple inches above your wrist rather than cover it. The jacket is also slightly longer - about even with the groin. The pants are "standard" length.

    This is NOT intended for beginning students and we'd suggest you consider a light weight gi before investing in one of these. It does NOT come with a belt because, honestly, you probably already have one if you're ordering this...

    As you can imagine, at our company we literally have our pick of uniforms and without question, this is the finest one you can find for anything CLOSE to this price. It's the one WE use for karate.

    We have a nylon lining put inside the drawstring "tunnel" on the pants. That makes tightening them much easier - especially when they get sweaty.

    These uniforms will only shrink a small amount, so don't plan to buy a size up - also we recommend you use the weight from the size chart as your first guide to picking the correct size (since it's much easier to adjust length than girth). If anything, uniforms tend to run large, so if you're not sure about the size, go down. Pants will run long - as most quality gi's do, so you can hem to your exact preference if needed.

    These tend to be sized a little larger than "average" for typical karate uniforms. If you're between sizes or your body height and weight doesn't seem to fall inside the numbers listed, we recommend that if you're "tall & thin" go with height (you don't want it too short), "not tall" or "not thin" go with weight (you don't want it too small around your waist/stomach/chest).

    Pants sizes (unwashed):

    Note the "waist size" is the measurement of the fabric on one side when laid flat. Also keep in mind that the "inseam" measurement is not the same as it would be on a pair of "civilian" pants. We recommend you use the total length of the pants for sizing. You should expect about 1" to 1 3/4" of shrinkage in the length after washing.

    1. Absolutely worth every penny

      It's a tad more expensive than your beginning heavy weight gi. But I've never found a gi with this build quality (and comfort) at this price. I've been in martial arts for 5 years now and started out with a heavy. I can say without a doubt that this gi has the highest quality and most comfort out of any gi I've owned. It feels soft yet is durable and snappy just like a heavy weight should be. I would recommend this gi to anyone. :) on Sep 30th 2015

    2. Also a note

      AMAZING customer service. If anything fits funny, or you want to change size these guys are on it ASAP when you email them. So 5 stars on customer service as well. on Sep 30th 2015

    3. Quality Gi and Excellent Company

      I liked this gi so much that I bought a second one. It's comfortable, durable and affordable, and wears as well if not better than any of the other, more expensive "name-brand" gi's we've all had at one time or another. If you need a really good gi at a reasonable price and backed by a quality company, BUY A PIRANHA! on Sep 30th 2015

    4. Awesome Gi and an even greater company!

      This gi is an amazing value! At 14oz it's heavier than my Sheradio, and with it's bushed cotton, it's softer too. When I ordered the gi I goofed. I ordered two size 5. I meant to order one size 4 and one size 5, because I read these run large... I wanted to cover my bases. The reviewer who said they run large was correct. In talking(email) with the company I found them to be very friendly... like family. They even sent me a size 4 to try out. I eventually sold one of the size 5 to a fellow instructor, and EVENTUALLY returned the other size 5. In the meantime the owner of Piranha Gear, and I stayed in contact, exchanging conversation ranging from my being an instructor to his relatives playing paintball (I'm also part of a paintball team... Warriors For Christ). I know we will remain in contact because Piranha is more than just a company, they are people who care.... Right now I'm waiting to order my next gi... from Piranha Gear. (they are momentarily out of stock on the particular gi I want) Right now I don't see myself buying a gi anywhere else... partly due to the high quality/low price, and partly because of there people!

      You will not regret a purchase from Piranha Gear.

    5. High Quality, Low Price

      Seriously, this heavyweight Dogi is a true bargain. It is every bit as thick as my Shureido, but is much softer. I feels like you've been wearing it for over a year. Definitely purchase one if you're in the market right now. These cost less than other medium or student weight Dogi.

      They do run SLIGHTLY large; not extra large. So, if you normally get a 5.5 from Shureido, get a 5 from Piranha.

      The "tails" of the kimono are longer than I like, but that's a small matter.

      I like the 4/5 sleeves on mine.

      They do not offer embroidery.

      Overall, a FANTASTIC Dogi, at an unbelieveable price.

    7. Great Gi

      This is a great Gi. I can not say enough good things about it and the customer service I received from Piranha Gear. I have trained in a polyester blend gi for about 3 years and I will never go back to a students type gi again.

      Fantastic stitching on the cuffs and the strings I know this gi will hold up to some rough work.

    8. Excelent product - Better service

      This is a very well designed Gi. The cut is great for fighting/sparring ( kumite ), it allows for better range of movement. I not big fan of drawstring type pants, but the design on these is well thought out. It pulls evenly without discomfort.
      The material is top notch, as is the stitching. The package arrives packed with care, and included with the gi are care directions - typed in booklet form. Not just a piece of paper clumsily cut with scissors, in other words these people care about their product.

      That leads me to best part of this product - the customer service. You tell Piranha cares about what they've created and sell. But more than that, their response to email and the handling of returns is excellent. I ordered a size below what I normally order, because I thought a smaller size would give me the shorter arms and legs I was looking for. And my body probably fits a 3 1/2, best. When I discovered the size 3 was too small Piranha accepted my return, but wanted to know more about my sizing... so they could improve on their product ( I don't think they need to change anything though ).

      For the price I don't think you can find a better gi. And with fantastic customer service, and a product made in the USA it can't be beat.
      I shop with many small company's because of my hobbies, and it's a hard life running a small business. Hopefully Piranha's hard work will pay off.

      5 stars!!!

    9. Excellent Uniform

      Item was delivered with speed and was well taken care of. Uniform is a great deal and works very well. I have been training for 20 years now and will absolutely recommend this item to others on Sep 30th 2015

    10. One of the Best Borthday Gifts a guy can get!

      I have one complaint - just one - only got one of these.

      I wish I had one for every day of the week. I put my gear through hell, and while I may ""only"" practice Karate, I practice hard, I sweat hard, and I am brutal with what I wear (in, and out of the dojo, in fact).

      Now, this is a 14oz Gi, and while I'm used to 16oz. or even custom 18oz. Gi (for Karate), this is just the right weight, and it has just the right snap. It's length, and cut is perfect for what I practice, as hard as I practice, and it's strength stands up to these man-beating-machines they keep throwing at me.

      There is both style, and functionality, and I couldn't ask for anything else!
