The Reevo “Kimura” Gi reminds me a lot of my Atama Mundial #5. It is very thick and has some weight to it. I knew right off I would want to use it for a winter gi. One of the things that first caught my attention was the built in rash guard. It is the black patch shown in the picture inside the gi. I wear a rash guard and I wondered if this would be a good substitute. I noticed that my rash guard gets its most wear on the back. After working with this gi I do not think it takes the place of a rash guard but it extends the life of the one you have. I was a little apprehensive about the fact the gi was made in Pakistan. But after working with it I found it was well made and didn’t start to lose patches or have trouble with the first few rolls and washing like other gis I have had. One big plus was it came with two pair of pants. I thought that an extra special deal for the price. The collar was a little stiff at first but after some use it formed better around my neck. Overall I think this is an excellent starter gi. It is not too pricey. It gives you a feel for what you like and do not like about gis and it is going to last you a good long time. I can say I would recommend picking one up from MartialArtsSupplies.com during the holidays while they have deals on.
