Product Description
    • Classic white
    • Traditional cut
    • 100% cotton
    • Bound side vents with tie cords

    This KD Elite jacket is soft and comfortable like their lighter jackets, but an experienced practitioner will quickly notice the responsiveness of this 11 oz. model. Aside from the obvious strength and durability from the increased weight, another highlight is that subtle snap or whip that many martial artists look for in a kimono when using quick & powerful techniques or forms. Mobility is not an issue when you're training in this high quality gi thanks to KD Elite's traditional-style cut.

    Using a comfortable 100% cotton material that is breathable and pliable whether you've just put it on or if you've been training in it for hours on end. There are additional tie cords located by the side vents which allow you to easily adjust and secure your jacket.

My second and still great

I had purchased this gi top a few years back and then lost it when taking a break from karate. I ordered it again when I started back up. It is very durable and provides a good snap even after being washed.

It is 100% cotton which means it will shrink. Know this going in and order a size or two too big. I wash mine in cold water and hang dry and it still shrunk the first few washes. If you plan for it, you will not be otherwise disappointed by this affordable and quality gi top.

Shrinks too much

I bought a size 4 in April. I have washed it regularly (every 2-3) weeks and it has shrunk every time I have washed it. 100% cotton sounds nice, but it is problematic.

Well made!

Heavyweight gi jacket for my son who loves it! The jacket is just heavy enough for hot days and has that "brushed" feeling to it, but very durable even for those training days when he finds himself on the ground grappling. The price point was one of the biggest reasons I chose to purchase this jacket too. Many of top brands wanted more than I was willing to pay for just a gi jacket.

First it states that it's made of 100% cotton in the bullet notes description, but then it quotes, "It won't weigh you down by absorbing sweat and moisture in the way that an all-cotton uniform might." which implies that there is a poly blend. I'll get one if its 100% cotton, because this is one of the ONLY stores that offers jackets seperate. i'm very happy with my piranha gear pants in black, however i need a nice white jacket to switch it up.

Great catch Ironmaster, that little description mix up is definitely confusing. This gi top is 100% cotton and we will be removing that sentence that doesn't quite make sense.

great! thanks so much for the response. I figured it was all cotton since 11oz is pretty heavy to bear poly fibers. hard to believe the price is so low. karate depot is the place to get gear for sure.

Quality jacket, but order a size up!

Ordered a size 3 for my son who quickly out grew his size 2 Tiger Claw/Hayashi heavyweights.
Washed it right away the day I received it. Instructions said to wash in warm, rinse in cold, drip dry. It shrunk one full size right out of the wash!
Contacted Karate Depot the next morning and unfortunately, I could not return it for an exchange since it's been washed, but they offered to sent me a size 4 for $15 (half-price). Let my misfortune be your success. I'll just pass on the shrunken size 3 to my daughter.
Also purchased the matching heavyweight (black) pants and have posted a review of those as well.
