Moya Brand Ivory Tech Review
First impressions of the Moya Brand Ivory Tech
I really dig the white gi’s with a darker contrast stitching. I like lapel patches as well. I don’t know what it is about these traits but I just like them. The Moya Brand Ivory Tech has both these features so I guess it’s a win win for me?
It’s a really clean design after pulling it out of the bag and taking a closer look at it. The white material with the grey contrast stitching is a good combination.
- 450 Gram Pearl Weave jacket (single weave)
- Grey Contrast Stitching
- EVA foam padded collar
- White Woven Patches
- Re enforced stitching on critical seams
The Moya Brand Ivory Tech has nicely laid out patches, not excessive but not entirely plain either. The Ivory Tech features a clean back of the jacket for team and/or sponsor patches. The bottom of the jacket is Quadruple stitched with a canvas strip of cloth. Triple stitched arm seams.
The taping is soft and not scratchy in the slightest bit. Double stitched cuff with taping, and all reinforcements are standard
Mostly straight stitching on the collar and is of medium thickness. Rather slick collar as well.
If you’re not a fan of the patches on the jacket then you’re in luck because they’re easily removable. The jacket is constructed well with mostly straight stitching throughout the top. It’s lightweight and isn’t too restricting with the sizing either.
- 12 Oz Cotton Twill Pants for daily training
- 32 Thread Count Drawcord
- 4 Total Belt Loops on Pants.
- Grey Contrast Stitching
Moya Brand pants are heavier than normal, this might turn some people off but I don’t mind at all. They’re stitched very well and no weak points in the pants that I could find. The only exception for high quality is the scratchy brand tag.
This is a bit of a downer but is an easy fix. Should I have to fix this? No, but I will of course.
The design is rather simple. One patch on the thigh, one on the side. Four belt loops that are still placed a wee bit too high though. The knee pads are slightly longer and cover a bit more than normal though so that’s good!!!!
Double stitched cuff and seam tape
How does it fit
Loose, but tight at the same time. Does that make sense?
I’ve always had a good experience with Moya Brand Kimonos, and this is certainly no exception.
The Ivory Tech comes in at $160 which is right at about regular price for a lot of companies that are releasing kimonos right now. It’s a fair price for what you’re getting.
Moya Brand has an all around good training gi and is also good for competitions. Some might not like the pants because they’re heavier than normal but I have no problems with them. The scratchy tag is really the only down side to the gi but it’s such a small nuisance that it doesn’t really bother me that much.
