Rating Amazing Gi!!!
 
I am a 5'10 215-235lb Judo/ Jiu Jitsu,I also crossfit so I have a more muscular build which has been a pain in the butt to get the right sizing, so I bought the A4, and it is an amazing Gi! I prefer a bit bigger gi since I am a judo player also, and the A4 jacket fits great, there is very minimal shrinkage, I actually would have preferred a bit more shrinkage, but its all good. The feel and quality is out of this world. The pants are also amazing! But I will say if you are like me a person with a long torso and short legs, and are worried about sizing, go with the A3, the pants fit fine, but lay on the top of my foot. I prefer around the ankle bone. so the A3 would be perfect all around. Dont get me wrong, its personal preference. The gi its self is worth every penny, quality and customer service. And the Gi drys really fast, a wash from a morning session and but 5pm its ready for the evening session! I did have to shave the red zombie strip of cloth in the ankle area of the leg, it was sealed with like a cauterizing machine which caused some scratching, but a little scissor shaving and it was good to go! All around its my favorite gi, I bought the black 550, and everyone in my gym thinks its badass! Spread the infection! I gotta say that you have the best customer service! I am honored to be part of the Zombie family! cant wait for the Blues! Hey buddy, just wanted to follow up, I have been using the Black 550 and the blue pants now for quite a few months now and I love the the GI! is so comfortable, Doing Judo in it, I was a bit worried how it would hold up against the grips and throws, but it holds up just fine! A few stretching sounds in the skirt during some rolling, but otherwise its amazing! I will say the only downfall that I have with it is the pants. The red zombie lining strip chaffs the crap out of my out of my feet, it gives the top of my foot and the ankle a burn style scrape. I am almost thinking of taking that piece off. other then that this Gi is close to flawless! Cant wait to be able to buy my full white zombie!

At first I just added Zombie Kimonos on Facebook because I thought the name sounded cool and one of my friends "liked" their page. I was honestly afraid to drop a lot of money on a gi, as I've only purchased less expensive Gameness and Fuji gis. I'd heard people say "a gi is a gi, nothing special." While describing their more expensive name brand gi. Finally a sale came along from Zombie, making them comparable in price to my less expensive gis. I gave in and bought a black 550 (cuz let's be honest, it looks sick as hell). Initially I was having trouble purchasing my order. I emailed them with my issue and J.C. responded almost immediately to help me out. Once I received my gi, I was immediately impressed with how well it fit, and how comfortable it was. I'm 5'10", 215 with a gut on me, the gi fit almost as if it were custom. It appeared very well made, and was very comfortable during my two hours of training that day. I'm 100% sold on this company and will definitely continue to buy gis from them. Even at full price, I feel it would be worth every dollar. Hopefully they come out with some fight shorts soon!

Rating Coolest Gi EVER
 
this gi is the most comfortable one i've ever had. very durable too. my last gi got didn't last very long at all. i apparently have strong jiu jitsu emitting from my crotch because my last gi pants got completely destroyed! the jacket wasn't doing much better. this is not the case with my Zombie gi. it has held up to everything i put it through (even my strong jiu jitsu crotch lol). hands down a great investment and something to show off to your buddies at the gym. they will be jealous...

Rating Killer Gi!
 
I own a lot of gis. Some are good, some are hardly useable any more, but the Zombie 550 black is my favorite. Cool design, and top notch construction and comfort, make this gi not only competitive when compared to the other gis out on the market, but far superior at the under $200 price point. One of the other reviews of the 550 Black describes it as the "second coming." Not too far off! This is a solid, sturdy gi, without the parka-like feeling of similar gis sold at the same price point or above. At 5'10 and 175 lbs, the A2 was perfect for me. The color is nice and thick, reducing the likelihood of getting choked, and the in general making it hard for your opponent to play any kind of tail-game with the skirt of the kimono. I think the biggest standout at least in terms of construction of the 550 are the pants. I've been doing BJJ for 8 years now and have rendered many of my gis useless due to constantly tearing through the knees of pants. When the description of the 550 states that the knees are reinforced, it's not kidding. These things are like amour plates running down the lower part of the leg, beginning at the knee. Surprisingly, this additional reinforcement doesn't limit movement in the least. Also, the pants taper slightly towards the ankle which, again, reduces your opponent's ability to control you. Not a bad feature. Obviously the design of this gi is cool. It has definitely drawn cool looks and comments from my training partners. I bet there could be some cool opportunities to do some themed printing on the inside of the gi as well, just in case JC is looking for suggestions. So yeah, you could shell out over 200 bucks for a more well-known brand, and take a gamble on the quality. But why would you? For under $200, the 550 eats the competition alive.

After a year of rolling in an A3 tall. So it's been a year since I got my Zombie Gi last November. I chose Zombie for cool design and it's tall sizing. If you are 6'2"/175lbs range A3Tall will fit great. Thought I'd weigh in. How has it held up? After a year of use and currently the ONLY gi I own, rolling 4 times a week and washing after each session, has it began to show wear. The pants fit perfectly. Sometime this month a rip in the pants below the knee pad on the right leg was the first tear. Same spot on left leg looked like it was about to tear as well. Gym patches were a good fix for those. Seam on the back of the pants looks like it'll be next (I admit, I butt scoot a lot heh). The wear on the back of the pants, isn't the triple stitched seam where the legs join, it's at the seam of the U shaped gusset sewn on the inside of the pants over the triple stitched seam. But no loops ever broke off and the crotch seam still looks fine. For being ripstop pants and how light and maneuverable, I think they lasted a good amount of time. The top fit great in the chest and sleeve length was just right (my arms are 79" finger tip to tip). No serious wear on it until very recently. A tear on the lapel, maybe half way down on one side, right on the edge of the lapel. Odd type of tear, best way to describe it, is as if you took a knife right to the edge of the collar/lapel and cut into it about 1/2cm deep, inner core was even split. Other than that, no problem with seams, and mild wear up and down the collar/lapel material from numerous collar chokes applied to me. And I believe majority of the collar wear is from the agitator of my top loading washing machine.

Hey guys, if you haven't checked out Zombie Kimonos please do so now. By far my favorite Gi and the service is absolutely amazing. Fit and look are killer as well. Note on the fit deal. The size chart is pretty much dead on so very little guess work. We all know how utterly annoying bad size charts can be! Spread the infection!

What can I say, this GI is incredible! Not only is it a cool looking GI, it feels awesome. It's lightweight but very tough, it's a snug fit but very comfortable, no restrictions when rolling and that's exactly what I look for. I was very reluctant to spend so much on a GI, but after using it for 3 months, it was worth every penny! Im 5'10, about 170 pounds and im using an A2 GI and i can honestly say its the best ive ever used. Highly recommended!!

I recently received my Black 550 in the mail and to be hoenst, it was love at first sight! It was everything I wanted it to be and more. I am only 5'1 and about 120lbs so I was really worried the A0 wouldn't fit. The pants were a great fit and after one wash and one dry, the sleeves shrunk up perfectly so my top fits great now too. I love the feel, the fit and loved all the compliments I got from the other ladies in my class. I will definitely order from Zombie again and am proud to be one of the infected. OSSS!

I was sold on this the minute JC replied to my sizing question via Facebook. Communication was on point and JC goes head and shoulders above the rest, making sure his customers have a positive shopping experience. I'm 5'9 and 205 lbs. and at JC's suggestion, I went with an A2. The jacket and pants are both competition length right out of the package.I cannot wait to roll in this gi. Overall, this is a solid gi all around. I now own 7 gi and I feel Zombie will quickly become my favorite. OSS!!!

Just got my zombie Gi in, and rolled in it a few times. I'm very happy with the fit and comfort. I will for sure be buying another one down the line. I am 5'9 158 lbs and an A2 was a great fit. I have a couple of Breaking Point Gi's and this Gi puts them to shame.

I bought this kimono as a Christmas present for my brother. He LOVED it!He has been practicing Jiu-Jitsu for longer than I can remember. In my research, I was looking for a high quality, yet cool looking kimono, and this fit the bill perfectly! The clever Zombie marketing concept was the icing on the cake. My brother's two favorite things: Jiu-Jitsu & zombies. Customer service is amazing as well! I will absolutely purchase more presents for my brother here in the future.

I bought the Black 550 and it was delivered to Ireland in less than a week, this is the fastest delivery I have ever had from the states. Most importantly, the gi, it is definitely the best I have ever owned. It is durable, lightweight and fits perfectly. (I am 5' 10", 160lbs. Got the A2) There will be plenty more purchases from Ireland in the future, the guys in my gym are already lining up to buy one in the new year! Thanks for a great product and a great customer service. (I would give 6 stars if I could)

I purchased my Black 550 a few weeks ago and wanted to wait a few classes before writing a review. My opinion...This Gi is SICK!! The fit is perfect. I no longer get caught in my own uniform after it starts to loosen up a few minutes into a round. Additionally, this Gi is extremely well made and the look is awesome. Special thanks to the Zombie staff for answering all the questions I had before my purchase. SPREAD THE INFECTION!!

Rating BJJ ENTHUSIEST !
 
Wow, what a gi. Being a man with spikey hair, tattoos and the whole 'rock n' roll' personality going on, I was looking for a BJJ gi that complemented me. Found it with this Zombie! Ever since I started wearing the Zombie Black A2 I have been labled "the dude with the cool gi". Black gi with red stiching really looks sharp. The knees have an extra layer sowed in under them out of the same material as the top. This extra layer runs long down the leg, from knees to shins, giving a little extra padding for those tough rubbs in a roll. The bottom of the right leg has a Zombie logo in red and grey, looks great on black pants. Crotch reinforced with the same material as the top, giving extra support in that area for the flexible guys, as well as a little guard. The tie string is a red bungie like rope. I have rolled in alot of pants, and had to re tie or re adust alot. Not with these pants. The bungie keeps it's knot the whole roll! The top is cut perfect. The bottom is lined with red, looks really sharp. It hangs just low enough under the belt to stay tucked in without taking any free movement away. The sleeves are lined with a red strip that says zombie inside. This strip makse for an easy grip when you use your own sleeve for a old. The label is made out of ripstop material, just like pants. Thick enough to support any grabs or pulls from an oponet but not so thick that it limits movement or weighs you down. The top is a thick tough weave that holds up against those real 'grappler' oponets but won't leave you with any carpet burns. Sharp look with red stitching and Zombie embroidery all over it. In all a great guy, great gi great way to look good doing what we love to do, CHOKE PEOPLE OUT! I'M DEF. INFECTED BY THE ZOMBIES! TASK FORCE TIMBO BJJ

Bought the gi in A3 Tall because I am a lanky dude and it fits perfectly. I am 6'5" 200lbs and couldn't find any other gi that fits correctly. Plus it looks killer! Everyone in class was asking about it and had a few other odd sized people thinking about getting one as well. Also I didn't get to use the 15% and Jesus hooked me up with the discount after the order had been processed and shipped! Love the gi, love the owner, I will probably be getting another color very soon! Braaaaiinnnsss!

One of the factors that sets Zombie apart from their competitors is what happens after the sale.Most distributors are content to sell you a high quality uniform and leave it at that.In my case, the A3 was too large and I needed assistance in getting the A2 replacement.From beginning to end, their committment to making sure I was 110% satisfied with my purchase was shown. The personal replies by email made it a smooth replacment.My ZOMBIE is worth every penny spent.
