How to get a pre-sale Shoyoroll GUARANTEED

shop-online-presale-shoyoroll-banner

I was all set to order my Scramble 1chiban.  I had hyped it up for a month here on the site and I was so excited to get one.

I logged onto Budovideos at the appointed release time, put an A3 in my cart, started filling in all of my important details: address, credit card info, etc.

The whole process took maybe 3 minutes.

Which was about a minute too late.

2 minutes. It took 2 minutes for them to sell out!

The best BJJ gi for your body type (2016 Short and Stocky Edition)

What is the best BJJ gi for short, stocky, or muscular grapplers?

Looking for a specific gi review?  Check out our reviews here.

Every day people are posting their height and weight into internet forums and asking what type of gi will fit them the best.  Lots of people answer but there’s never been one article that puts all of the answers together.  Until now.

In another recent article, we discussed the best gis for skinnier and leaner guys.  In this article, we’ll discuss the best gis for the big guys.

In this second half of the series, we’re going to take a look at the big guys.  This includes those of us who are just plain fat, as well as the guys carrying a large amount of muscle in our upper or lower bodies.  For some reason, gis never fit us right.  For the muscular guys, gis fit super tight and restrictive in the upper back, thigh, and shoulders.  For us chubby guys, the gi is always coming open around the midsection because there isn’t enough material for our bellies.  For both groups, their midsection fits one gi, and their arms and legs fit another.  Bummer…

But wait, there is hope.  In fact, there’s a lot of hope.  Here’s a two gis that are sure to fit you.

Inverted Gear

Inverted also offers an awesome A2H gi that’s perfect for big guys! Check it out here.

Da Firma Kimono Company

Da Firma offers a bunch of cool sizes for bigger people such as:

A-3 (SHORT) — 5’8″-5’11” — 195-215 lbs

A3M (SHORT)   5’8″-5′-11″    220-235 lbs

A3M     6’0”-6’3″     225-250lbs

A5S     5’8”-5”-11” 260+

Kingz Kimonos

Kingz Kimonos offers two cool sizes for bigger folks as well:

5′ 8″ – 5′ 11″
210 – 240 lbs.
A2H
5′ 10″ – 6’1″
210 – 245 lbs.
A3H

Atama & Koral

Next are two mainstream gis that get a lot of attention for fitting stout people as well as (sometimes) skinnier people.  These are Koral and Atama (sometimes Padilla and Sons is mentioned in this vein as well).  Typically, Atama has a longer skirt, which will favor guys with a bigger belly and will keep their lapel tucked into their belt whereas a smaller skirted gi will not.

Shoyoroll

Next is, again, Shoyoroll.  Shoyoroll offers the size A2H (A2 Heavy) which fits guys between 5’8″ – 6’0″    and 220-250lbs.  They are a great option, but as stated in the first half of this series, they are often disregarded due to limited availability and a long wait time after ordering.  Still, the A2Hs are a good option for bigger guys and there are Shoyoroll gi reviews on this site for the Yank and White Mamba and reviews are forthcoming for the Yin, Yang, Compadre, and Americana.

Gorilla Fight Gear

Last is, surprise, Gorilla Fight Gear’s Big Guy’s Silverback Platinum Wave BJJ Gi.  Unlike just the A2H offered by Shoyoroll, Gorilla Fight Gear’s Big Guy gi offers a wide range of sizes for the big guys (like me).  So if you’re anywhere from 5’5” and 180 to 6’4” and 320+ lbs, see the chart below to figure out where you fit into their sizing.  Also, these big gis come with a rashguard liner on the inside  and “roomier in the shoulders, chest torso, and hips and thighs to allow you the freedom to move unrestricted like a big cat.” (quoted from their website.  Hilarious.).

Size Height Weight Sleeve 2 Sleeve Sleeve Width @ Armpit Gi Jacket Width GI Pants Out Seam GI Pants Waist Width Leg Width*
A2X 5’5″-5″8″ 180 to 210lbs 64″ 11″ 25″ 37″ 22″ 12.5″
A3X 5’8″-5’11” 205-230lbs 67″ 11.5″ 26″ 40″ 23″ 13″
A4X 5’11”-6’2″ 225-275lbs 70″  11.75″ 27″ 42″ 24″ 13.5″
A5X 6’2″-6’4″ 270-320lbs 74″ 12″ 28″ 44″ 25″ 14″
A5XX 6’2″-6’4″ 320+lbs 74″  12.5″ 29″ 44″ 26″ 14.5″

Here’s their beefy gi underneath their regular gi of the same size (both are A3s).

Summary for the big boys:

The Most Thorough Shoyoroll Fifty/50 BJJ Gi Review EVER

Shoyoroll fifty50 gi review

Shoyoroll Fifty/50 Special Edition Gi Review

by Rich

Summary

Shoyoroll fifty50 gi review (1)

The Shoyoroll Fifty/50 RS Special Edition gi is like suit of heavy armor, and a very good-looking one at that. Its killer performance feature is a huge, foamy collar that is wider and thicker than those on other gis from the same brand. It has a very clean and nice look, which is supported by the unique-to-brand grayscale color scheme, and it contains some of the standard Shoyoroll embroidery and patches along with several custom aesthetic features designed specifically for this gi. Although there are some things about it that I would change, I definitely won’t be getting rid of this ultra-rare gi anytime soon.

[I love the GiReviews community and am truly thankful to feature guest reviews on the site but I have never had anybody send me a review quite like this (just wait, you’ll see).  The following gi review is an exceptional piece of hard work by Rich.  I am honored to feature it on the site and I am truly blown away by what he’s done here. ~ Brendan ]

Shoyoroll Charles Lew Review

Gi Review: Shoyoroll Charles Lew

Overview

The color combination and top of the Shoyoroll Charles Lew jacket are probably my favorite combo of all time. The Tiffany’s turquoise/blue (whatever) really pops on the black. The Gi is accented with diamond logo hits on the pants and jacket for a very clean and unique look.  I severely dislike ripstop pants, but as far as these ones go, they aren’t too bad. I should have jumped on the cotton pants option and have been kicking myself ever since. No durability issues to be had, but I personally feel like ripstop doesn’t breath well, turns into cardboard when wet and doesn’t allow for as greater of leg maneuverability.

Shoyoroll Batch 17 The Competitor Pre-Sale Information

Shoyoroll Batch #17: Competitor Presale goes on soon. Mark your calendars. SYR’s Batch #17- “Competitor” is inspired to reflect our logo layout for our sponsored athlete gi’s. This gi is perfect for competition! The kimono will be available in two colors- White and Blue. Unfortunately, they didn’t produce their fitted gi sizes for this particular batch. This means the A3S is available, but the ‘F’ sizes they’ve done recent are not.
