Vulkan Pro Light Gi
Light weight Gi's you gotta love them! Perfect for those hot days in the summer time when you still want to get a good roll in. Or for those times when you probably shouldn't have went to Burger King the night before a comp and you are slightly over your weight class. The Vulkan Pro Light is certainly a heavy hitter in the light weight competition Gi category. Check out the written review below and be sure to watch the video review for a better look.
There has been some talk that these Gi's tend to run a bit baggy compared to other Gi's in the same size. The sleeve length seems to be about right, but there is a bit more room in the chest area. It may be recommended to size down if you are close to the low end of a size. The pants fit great though and are very similar to other brands. Nothing out of the ordinary there.

Vulkan kimonos weight (aprox) by size:
A0 = 2.6 lbs
A1 = 2.8 lbs
A2 = 3.0 lbs
A3 = 3.3 lbs
A4 = 3.8 lbs
A5 = 4.2 lbs
This may be a light weight Gi, but there are no signs that it's not made well. It seems all of the right steps were taken to ensure that the Gi top will last just as long as a normal weight Gi. The same can be said for the pants, but like I mention in the video review, I have a feeling if they are used in a heavy rotation they may not last as long as the top, but that's somewhat normal.
The Cool Factor
The Vulkan Pro Light Gi I'd say is on the same level of style as a Koral. With nice looking patches on the shoulders and one down the lapel, it adds some color and flare to the Gi. Be sure to check out the pictures and video review for a closer look.
