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.
meh. give me 93 or give me death
Why so expensive? Strike Fightwear Roots 3.0 was $80 and retailed for more than this gi :(. Even the Meerkatsu collaboration was $100 here.
The Roots is an old Gi and, frankly, this one is packed with more percent Awesome!
But srsly: This one has got premium everything.
It's a very high quality 450gsm Gold, top shelf 12oz twill with maximum stitch rows and full-length knee reinforcement panels, sublimated jacket interior, graphic woven seam taping throughout pretty much everywhere, and all but one logo is an embroidery, and it's got the wider sized drawstring loops).
(Note: the Roots was only $80 on HQ once Strike was getting rid of them and they'd lowered their MSRP to below $100)
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.
Are the pants of this gi ripstop?
Arron can you check the customer service email
Holiday today, we'll be back on it on Monday.
5'9" 155lbs. What size should I get
I love the crowd control 2.0. How does this compare in terms of weight and feel?
This one is softer than the crowd control overall, particularly the top. The pants are softer and a bit heavier.
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.
Not interested in the Gi, I just logged in to down vote this guy that insinuates Empire Strikes Back is a "lame" movie.
@Charles if I could upvote you a million times I would.
But honestly, isn't this rather tasteful/tame as far as movie reference gear collabs go?
The fact that it's a subtle mountain is good... because you would indeed find them on the Hoth planet.
No over-the-top light sabers or death stars. Just classy, babe. And @vergeofchaos don't worry, we'll get a Misfits Gi up here soon!
HA! by the amount of dislikes it looks like folks know a stupid comment when they see it.
