Congrats on the BB.

You got this gi for a specific comp, right? When is it?
I am on a bad connection and it would take an hour to go back through the thread - sorry if it's already posted.
Congratulations on the BB and the weight loss. 30 lbs is no joke. Can't wait to see footage ad get your thoughts on the competition.

If I had the means to air dry my gi's I would, but with my lifestyle (college student) it's not feasible. Avoid tumble dry on any gi if you can, but then I find they become rough. I use a dryer sheet and put it on long low heat and it comes out smooth and smelling fresh.
I've had my break point ultralight white Gi for a little over 4 months and roll anywhere from 2-4 times a week in it. I think the sizing is a little off, Im 5'9" 170 and the A3 pants shrunk short, I don't swim in the jacket but it is a little longer in the waist than I think a lot of the guys on here would like.
Just a tip- I use tumble dry low low heat and throw in 2 tennis balls with my stuff. (regular laundry too) It helps items dry quicker with out increasing the heat and fluffs stuff. (I thank my wife)

I want one soooooo bad. Chris at Datsusara just re launched their website. Im just waiting for a black one in my size to become available. No bling inconspicuos, and hemps a great eco fiendly material that is way stronger than cotton. I dont think you'll have to worry about ripping it.

On that note, my gi is holding up well. It was my hope to have broke it in today but injury and life got in the way so I'll wait until next time. Gi hasn't shrunk at all.

I'm sorry to hear that mate. Does that mean that you will go for the 9th annual? Or did you mean some earlier comp?
