Keiko Raca GI Review
The Keiko Raca Limited series highlights itself as a heavy duty GI that is built to last for years to come. It is constructed from double weave material of 800 gm. The GI is also double reinforced on the pressure or stress points and has a thick EVA foam collar for added protection. The lapels on it are made of a rubberized material that is rigid and difficult for an opponent to grab hold on. The jacket comes preshrunk but its sleeves and the pants will adjust according to the user’s size and how they wash it. Aside from being such a heavy duty GI, it is surprisingly comfortable and breathable. A feature that distinguishes it from most of the GIs is the embroidery and contrast among the colors.
If you are tired of all the baggy GI that is a nuisance to work with then Keiko Raca’s Slim Fit GI is the way to go without a doubt. It is a new product for the Slim Fit Kimono by the company started in the year 2015. This GI is also IBJJF approved with all of the great quality features but excluding all the excess material to give you the perfect fit. It is amazing for tall and slim athletes and has a suitable fitting for them; the pants are also rip stop fitted.
