Ramma- To help us out a bit more, what are qualities you are looking for in your next gi? You mentioned you wanted a quality gi that will last a while, but do you have a preference in weave type, weight, cut, etc.? If you are just looking for a quality gi that will last a while IMO HCK wins hands down. I bought my first BJJ gi (Krugans) in 1997 and have owned and seen MANY different brands/styles in the past 11 years and have yet to come across a gi that gives you more durability for the buck than HCK. A little more specific info will help because in the end an HCK (or Padilla, Vulcan, Koral etc.) might not be for you.
