Kingz Balistico 2.0 GI Review
The Kingz Balistico 2.0 is a high quality BJJ gi from Kingz Kimonos. It is a lightweight competition gi that Kingz describes as a combination of their Lightweight 4.0 gi and their original Balistico. Kingz is my currently favorite brand when it comes to Jiu Jitsu gi's because of their great fit and quality so I knew I was going to get this gi!
I just got the Balistico 2.0 last week for Christmas! I've been waiting months to get my hands on it and I finally got the chance to roll in it twice over my Christmas vacation! I can happily say that this gi has lived up to my expectations! I love the way it fits and feels, it looks great and very I'm comfortable in it while rolling.
Just an FYI for people who put their gi's in the dryer like I do. My gi hasn't shrunk any noticeable amount and I've dried it twice now. Just something to keep in mind for sizing.
The Balistico 2.0 at the time that I'm writing this review has a 5 star rating on Fighters Market with one-hundred-and-three reviews. Clearly this gi has been well received by the BJJ community and I personally love this gi!
The pants with this gi are made of ripstop material. The material feels different from other ripstop pants I have. It feels more rigid and they are taking me a little getting used to if I'm being honest. However based on the way they feel they seem to be much more durable than any other pants from my other gi's. The jacket is made from cotton spun using a Pearl Weave pattern. The fit is great and I haven't noticed any restriction in my movement while wearing this gi.
Overall I really like this gi. The Jacket fits great and it feels comfortable. The Gi didn't shrink at all as far as I can tell and I know how well Kingz gi's hold up because I've been using one for about four years now with no issues! The one think in not crazy about is the way the pants feel. It's not even that I don't like them, I just need to get used to the different feeling they have. At least they feel like they wont rip unlike other gi pants I've had...
