Bought this gi for my son during the corona virus quarantine. So it was on sale for $75! What a great deal for such a quality gi. Out of the box the quality is up to par and better than some of the top brands out there that I have trained in. It's 450gsm pearl weave and the collars and nice and stiff. I love this gi and will be buying one for myself once the size is available.
I'm a 1st Degree Black Belt under Jared Weiner here in Philadelphia and a Shodan in Judo. I've trained martial Arts for over 35 years and BJJ and Judo for 25 years. I have owned probably around 100 gi's in that time, every brand that has been made. I was wearing Shoyoroll and A&P for the last few years. As of today I will be wearing Archetype only!! The highest quality. Clean lines. Not over branded. The best fit. The best customer service. Quick shipping. Looking forward to what's to come from this great company. Getting some no-gi and tshirts and hoodies next!
So far I'm loving the Dark Horse Comp Gi! It's perfect for practice and competition. It's light weight and durable to last you many training sessions. Also, this gi has some of the best aesthetics on the market!
I LOVE! The fit of this Gi! It’s comfortable, and works great for a good sweat sesh! Just slightly heavier than the black diamond, but works just as great!
Extremely high quality product. I am 6'0 215lbs and the A3 was a perfect fit so I'll certainly be cold washing only.
