Venum Elite Navy Gi


    Venum recently introduced a totally revamped line of BJJ Gis and frankly they've done an outstanding job, from the comfort and looks to fit and craftsmanship. The navy blue "Elite" is right at the top of that list with looks that are sharp but not over the top. Their high-quality embroidered graphics and updated woven patches look great against the navy cotton fabrics. Both of the main materials are pre-shrunk: 500 GSM Gold Weave and lightweight ripstop.

    Reinforcement paneling and strong stitching make the "Elite" a Jiu Jitsu uniform that can stand up to daily rolling and/or the most rigorous of competition schedules. Featuring a sublimated inner yoke panel with a repeat graphic pattern that contrasts nicely against the darker navy cotton. Equipped with multiple drawstring loops and a round stretch cord that match the white/grey trim throughout the rest of this handsome kimono.

    Includes lightweight carry bag.

    Venum Elite Navy Gi $120

    At 5'9", when I was 190, the last A2.5 Venum gi I bought was way too small. At 180 its still too small. It was way too short on the arms and tight around my chest. It also shrunk a lot with just cold washing and hang drying. It might be good for you, as long as you don't have some crazy long arms.

    I recommend going for the A2 and using a warm wash to shrink it down to fit, rather than risk the a1 being too snug after a few washes.

    Is this gi 100% cotton? I'm 6'2" 205, right on the edge of A3 and A4. If its going to shrink, I'm sure I'll be good with an A4, but all the descriptions on this gi are saying its pre-shrunk and will stay the same size?

    Yes, the main fabrics are cotton, only exception being the interior yoke panel with sublimated graphics.

    While Venum does have this as pre-shrunk, that's not to say it won't shrink additionally if washed warm or dried with Medium Heat (my suggestion being 15 min. intervals). Personally I'd recommend going for the A4 and shrinking it down to fit.

    Yep, that's what I thought and did order the A4. I was just a little concerned because this is a new gi with no reviews and Venum's site says "Pre-shrunk, this Venum BJJ Gi will remain at its present size" in its description, where I didn't see that specifically in their descriptions of other gis. So I thought they may have tried to do something different with the fabric on this one. As long at its 100% cotton I'm sure I'll be able to shrink it to fit. Thanks for your help, very much appreciated! :)
