"It has been rightly said that nothing is unimportant, nothing powerless in the universe; a single atom can dissolve everything, and save everything! What terror!" - Gerard de Nerval
I am 6', roughly 180 lbs with long arms. I owned the Vortex (V1) in A3, but decided to get the AtomLyte in a A2L in line after losing some weight and in line with the size chart. It fits excellently. I hang dry, so I cannot comment on shrinkage. However, the pants are ripstop and that type of weave rarely shrinks. The arms have at least an extra inch on them than the A3 Vortex, which is excellent. I could probably try to shrink them down with hot water and hot drying, but I can use that extra inch. The gi is comfortable and lightweight. It dries significantly faster than my other gi and other judo/bjj gis I have owned in the past. Note that the pants are ripstop so they have very little fabric flexibility. I noticed it when I first put them on, but have found that it does not have any effect on my ability on the mat. The stitching and embroidery appears to be high quality, as do the materials used in construction. I haven noticed this with my other Hypnotik gi as well which I've had for over a year with regular use. Overall this was a good purchase and I would buy it again if given the choice.
Amazing GI it is light and has a great feel. Collar isn't to stiff but not so flexible it makes collar chokes easy. I feel Hypnotik in general run a little big. I bought an A2 and it fits great but I am normally and A3. Overall a great comp or summer Gi.
Awesome to roll with
Great purchase. You can move great in these
We have bought numerous gi’s from hypnotik. Never once were we disappointed with the gi or the quality. This particular gi is very light weight. Quality is unmatched.
