Looks good and made very well. Very nice hand written note came with package!
The only reason I’m putting 4 stars is only because the pants are ever so slightly short for me on the inseam. I wear an A2 and the jacket fit perfectly, it was only the pants that were just a little snug. Waist was perfect just the length.
I have been on the hunt for a competition Gi, looking for the perfect fit. After trying a handful of popular brands, thought I’d give Nine Lives a try. I liked the branding, unique but subtle. It is now my favorite Gi i own, the best thing is the lightness! Highly recommend and love that it is a small business. Will definitely be purchasing more in every color.
This gi is great! Fits right, feels great and is very well made. It doesn't have the unique interior design elements of the other Nine Lives gis I've purchased but that was point, wasn't it? A great gi for everyday use, available at a lower price yet still crafted with the highest standards. I couldn't be happier with this buy!
Love everything about my new Gi! I’m 6’1” and the A3 fits true to size. Minimal shrinkage and the design is sharp! I get tons of compliments on the look and feel of this GI! Many more to be bought in my future!
I’m a larger muscled up guy and the A4 fit good for my 6’1 @255lbs frame. The Thighs were still sorta snug but what I loved most was that after wash & dry the Gi still fit really well and didn’t shrink nearly at all; at least compared to all other brands.
(I personally cold wash & dry my Gi’s only because if my wife accidentally were to ever wash them dry them I won’t be bummed out about their shrinking, sorta jus wanna get it over with.)
Once again I was sent a great product. I liked the classic black and gold Gi so much and got a few questions and comments on it, that I decided I should pick up a 2nd one. This time I went with the blue and white color scheme. the Gi has a really nice color in person, it just looks fantastic. fit was perfect right out of the box as well. The Gi is super light and comfy to wear. hope to get a lot of rolling out of this one. an awesome bonus is that the Gi comes with that nice wooden engraved hanger and some neat swag plus that hand written thank you card that's always appreciated. Thank you Nine Lives for another great Gi.
Appreciate you, your support and kind words Stephen.
I just trained in the classic for the first time tonight, it's light weight and comfortable enough. My only complaint so far is the length of the jacket. It is a little short, but overall seems like a solid gi.
I purchased this Gi (A2 @ 5'8/170, athletic build) off a random ad and took a chance on it. After rolling in it for roughly 3 months, I couldn't recommend it more. I live in the deep South and our gym gets VERY HOT and this Gi is perfect. It feels incredibly soft and becomes more comfortable the more I wear it. I do roll relatively hard (more theatrically at times than skilled lol) and there have been zero issues with quality or comfort, no matter what position I have been in. The Gi is very light and the interior is very soft to the touch, unlike some brands I have worn over the years. I will be coming back to 9 Lives for another the next time I need a Gi. Take a chance on this company, it is well worth it. Great job 9 Lives, and I am happy to support your business.
I love the fit and weight, size chart was spot on, and yeah, it just feels good to roll in. Definitely is my new go to :)
I love this gi so much. It's light weight but still durable and has a nice, stiff lapel. The fit is great, having longer limbs the tall sizes are a nice option. Additionally, their customer service is AMAZING- very responsive and helped me exchange for the right size with no hassle. They care about customer satisfaction and providing a quality product, i will definitely be a returning customer!
I love the weight and fit of this gi! It is comfortable, light, and moves well in training. The arm decals are so nice! Thank you.
