I have got to say that my experience buying this Gi has been absolutely first class!!! I asked a few questions before purchasing and I was answered on the same day (within a very short span of time) in a friendly and professional way (while also answering all my questions!) I also had a change of heart with the colour I wanted and Hooks changed it for me, without any issue (and also didn't make it seem that it was an issue, which was nice) this was just after I had ordered it and before it had been sent) The Gi itself is beautifully made! Exactly as described, nice and light (but feels strong and durable). It was also packed in a really nicely made draw string bag. It is my first Hooks purchase, but won't be my last!
The lightness of this Gi makes it a great choice for training on weekdays as I usually take my gear to work. It looks and feels great to wear. However, it does seem to run a little smaller compared to the Origin model. I had to size up in the pants after I received my initial order — as they were too tight to comfortably move in. But the Hooks team were very responsive and quick to send me a spare pair of pants in a larger size.
