Star Wars fans rejoice! The brand new HOTH 2.0 Gi by Strike Fightwear is now here in the States, and it's just as great as you could hope!
Built with soft and strong materials: 450 GSM Gold weave for the jacket and 12oz twill cotton for the pants. Both fabrics are clean, bright white with soft blue accents, including crystal clear embroideries and stitching. The highlight is the interior sublimated panel, depicting the icy, snowy Hoth world... A beautiful sight for any true Star Wars addict!
Like most Strike releases, this one has all the fixings of a premium modern Gi. Multiple wide drawstring loops, a round stretch cord, and a nice firm collar. Also situated with full-length knee reinforcements, so your knees are protected regardless of your legs' positioning.
Why so expensive? Strike Fightwear Roots 3.0 was $80 and retailed for more than this gi :(. Even the Meerkatsu collaboration was $100 here.
How much does this GI weigh? I am look for a new white comp GI.
450gsm gold weave, it is a middle weight as gis go.
I love the crowd control 2.0. How does this compare in terms of weight and feel?
Too bad. I love strike. But star wars? Im not 8 anymore, I know a lame movie when I see it.
I think the Crimson Ghost explains it all. Good call
To be fair star-wars reference is a bit stretched. You could call it the Mount Everest Gi if you wanted. The sublimation looks like just a snowy mountain from anywhere. It's refreshing that it's not an explosion of light sabres and movie references at least, I'm not a fan of pop-culture Gi's usually as it seems to be more about the image then the product.
