I've been pretty impressed with the quality that Phalanx puts into their no-gi gear, so I had few hesitations to try their first gi. I'm not big into white gis though, so once they announced that they listened to their customers and were releasing a black version of the Soldier One, I knew that I was going to wait for this release and get this as my annual new gi. Over the past month, I have been nothing but impressed. The fit is great out-of-the-box, the material is comfortable and extremely light, and I enjoy the little touches such as the upper lining and the subtle minimalism in the embroidered logos. I would strongly recommend this gi to anyone!
One of my favorite gi’s on the market!
I wasn’t sure what to expect given Phalanx’s reputation as a no-gi apparel company, but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality construction, tapered fit and added detail that you don’t normally find in a gi at this price point. If you're a fan of their no-gi gear, you’ll love this gi, too.
My overall experience with the Soldier One Gi has been great. The material is very comfortable and light. The dimensional stability after washing is good too. I finally found a gi that fits my weird 5'11" frame. Everyone at the gym was so excited to see that Phalanx is producing high quality BJJ Gi's. Keep up the great work.
