I was thinking along the lines of what some of you guys said.. I am buying a new gi so it will last me a little longer and I will have a back up.. so I might as well get a quality one.
I kind of forgot I even did this thread lol.
What about $130 and under? I wish I could just talk to my BJJ instructor about it.. but he is pretty busy these days with fight prep and stuff. I haven't seen him lol
$130 and under gives you a lot more wiggle room in terms of choices.
Popular gi's at that price range:
Probably a few more I'm forgetting. Each gi has its own set of qualities. HCK will probably outlast any of those, but it's fit isn't for everyone.
Atama tends towards a fit for slightly taller people, though I'm not lanky by any means and mine fits me fine. Koral should fit an average build person, but they are generally regarded as being overpriced. Atama as well, though a bit less so.
Keiko Raca I tend to hear either really good or really bad things about. They do shrink a lot when you first wash them, so keep that in mind. They are definitely fitted for longer, leaner body types.
Those are your big name gi's, but there are dozens of other brands worth looking at if you're willing to take the time. http://www.mkimonos.com/
is a good brand, though a bit out of my price range.
A good website resource would be Joker's Jiu-jitsu Kimono & Gi Reviews
Lots of gi reviews and information. Both for specific brands as well as gi's in general.
