Gorilla Fight Gear Slim Cut Apeman Gi Review

If youíre a tall and thin athlete, there really isnít any good reason to not get a gi that is specifically cut for you. The Slim cut Apeman is longer in the arms, tighter in the chest and the sleeves. Itís also nice to have pants that donít look like capris. The gi has a lot of high end features: mouthguard pocket, crystal weave, triple stitching, foam core collar and reinforced stress areas.

While other gis have the tall part covered, Gorilla has done a great job with the slim portion. The A4S fit me very well (Iím a shade over 6í4Ē and 195lb) and they even have sizes that would fit George Roop or Cole Miller. For those that compete this is a huge. While the material is a little heavier than pearl weave you have less actual fabric (making the weight of the fabric a non-issue) and your opponent will definitely notice the difference while grip fighting.

The quality of construction appears to be on par with my other high-end gis and Iím confident that it will hold up well to drilling, rolling and future competitions. Donít forget to check out Gorilla Fight Gear at their website and also on Facebook.

Base price is $179 (fairly common price for a high-end slim fit gi). The gi is currently on sale for $149 with the included belt.
