Had my eye on this gi for a while and recieved it as Christmas present. Love the look and feel of this gi. Also really appreciate customer services quick response when i reached out because i need a larger size. Awesome gi and a awesome company.
My parents ordered this gi for my birthday. I was blown away by the quality and fit. Can’t wait to wear it on the mat.
This is my favorite gi now. So light, so comfy, and I'm pretty sure the best pants I've ever worn on the mats. I had to order the white version to go along with it!
Oh my…straight from the box, a perfect fit! A light gold weave, soft pants that let me switch guards without sticking.
Meet my new fave!
I am in love with this hat. The cat embroidery is so cute and well done, and the color and material of the hat itself is great quality.
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’ve used a lot of gis from most major manufacturers, and this is by far my current favorite. It’s ultra ultra light, fits perfect and looks good. it’s also insanely comfortable and breathable.
The gi also came with a wooden hanger, bunch of stickers and a hand written thank you note.
The gi did come with some odd stitching around the sleeve where there are some loose threads, but not a big deal. will definitely be picking up one of their chapter gis when the next drop happens
Thanks for the kind words JP.
Lightweight material but still warm. My go-to lay around the house hoodie. Cool sublimated graphics.
Love this rashi, it's well made, nice fabric, the stitching is solid and the cat logo is the best.
Great quality and fit if you’re looking for a long sleeve rash guard! Styling always on point!
Thank you for the review Samuel means a lot to us.
Absolute supreme gi in fabric quality and looks! Very impressed with the feel of the fabric. The color way is definitely eye catching & great conversation starter on the mats. I think this gi/company is competing with the best of the best. The price is very nice as well considering you can’t get a gi this elite under 150$ Shipped & delivered a day early. Thanks 9 lives!!!!!
An eye catching gi that looks much better in the flesh. There was a line of squashed pearl weave that stood out on the chest, like something had been scraped across it? I don't expect it will impact the performance, but it was an annoying aesthetic imperfection. Rolling, it feels light and comfortable. The customer experience was A1 and postage to Aus was prompt.
Another review suggested the pants were long. I have many gi's from numerous companies and A2L is always a perfect fit after a quick tumble dry. These pants were VERY long. They'd be a generous length for a person of the maximum recommended height of 6'3. With my 6' frame they were dragging on the floor. I couldn't shorten them much in the dryer, though the crotch seemed tighter after. I also tumble cycled the Jacket as the arms were slightly long, but now the left lapel doesn't completely covers the right lapel when I wear it.
The pants, I had to keep hiking up to avoid tripping over myself. I was left with no option but to have them tailored. I needed to take nearly 2.5 inches off the length. I understand sizing a tricky thing to accommodate. You can't please everyone, but these are MUCH longer than A2L pants I have purchased in numerous other established brands. That's important to take into consideration if you are at the lower end of the size range. Overall I do like the gi. It's just disappointing to be out of pocket for alterations to the pants. Also the minor imperfection mentioned and the lapel width.
James, please send us an email to follow up I would like to take care of your alteration costs.
Each purchase from 9L has left me happy and ready to roll! This gi is no exception: Supremely comfortable for drills and warm-ups while tough and sturdy for every roll. Plus the colorway catches the eye!
