Inverted Gear Blue Panda Gi Review

Gi Review: Inverted Gear Blue Panda

Overall

Awesome, Awesome and more Awesome.

First off, it’s got a CUTE ******* Panda on the sleeves. If you don’t like Panda’s on your sleeves then this Gi isn’t for you, but I think it looks dope.  They use a great drawstring system and have beautiful seam taping to boot. I would absolutely recommend this Gi and the company who produces it to anyone. It’s got clean styling and quality craftsmanship. It comes with a large Gi bag that is especially nice. Looks wise, and this may sound ridiculous, but it doesn’t look ridiculous.

Top

As you can see, the Gi has PANDAS on the sleeves. It’s finely done embroidery and is just the right size to not look ridiculous, because honestly, a huge huge panda on the sleeve just might be over the top. MAYBE.

At size A3S the top actually fit me perfectly after one wash/dryer shrink session.

It’s got beautiful seam tape inside the skirt of the jacket as well as the cuffs. The seam tape has a Panda rolling around in some Bamboo leaves.

Every time you wear this Gi it’s like walking into a party with all of the liquor in tow. People will flock to you. It’s extremely catchy, yet extremely simple in design. The Gi top itself is a pearl weave that’s in the mid-range of thickness/weight. It’s a tailored fit so the sleeves aren’t overly baggy and the body of the gi hugs nicely.

Bottom

Ripstop pants that carry the same Panda/Bamboo seam tape at the bottom of the pants on the inside.

Need replacement pants? These classic ones by JustGi Pants could be the answer!

The pants also have a very nice belt loop system. Having that larger belt loop at the sides should be LAW in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu world or at least industry standard.

Gi Review: Inverted Gear Blue Panda

The pants didn’t restrict my movement or hinder my performance in anyway, although at size A3S they were definitely too long for me (and I actually got them hemmed to be able to give a fair analysis).

I do wish the pants had been a bit slimmer in the legs. If there’s any gripe I have about the Gi it would have to be that, because I don’t have any others. But I honestly chalk that up to me just wearing the wrong size.

Also, there’s a pocket inside the pant for jamming to your iPod or keeping your mouthpiece in during tournaments, a nice little add on indeed!

This Gi bag is upside down and you didn’t even know.

I love what the brand is doing but the measurements are a little off for me. The sleeves are a bit too long and roomier than I’d like. Otherwise, it s a really cool kimono.
