    Everyone at my school wears Gameness and I have yet to hear anyone complain. I've had mine for a year and it's my only one. It's still together with only one minor tear on the inside of all places. They don't shrink that much (although avoding a dryer is best) and can be dyed very effectively too.
    I also second the HCK gi if you want a starter for cheap.

    I have only had to use one patch on the knee (very weird place to get a hole, I think it got caught on something). Other than that, there has been pretty much zero wear and tear on the thing. It's a tank. It IS a bit heavy, but I like that anyway as I get a better sweat / workout in when rolling. It's durable as all hell. Zero complaints.

    i have a Bad Boy gi, had it for over a year so far, with, on average about 1-2 gi BJJ classes a week.

    no holes, no tears, no problems. its comfortable, but the jacket is thick as fuck, so its a little hot while training, but other than that, i have no complaints. and you cant get much more old school MMA than rocking Bad Boy

    i have no idea if its a single or double, but from what i know, all Bad Boys are tough ass material.

    Actually, all Bad Boy gi's are made by Atama. So the odds are pretty good that you're wearing an Atama with Bad Boy patches.



    Added the review though. Thanks.

    Here's some info some people may appreciate. It would be cool if others could contribute similar stats so we could get a good comparison going.
    I just got a Keiko for Christmas, literally, an hour ago, and I measured it to compare to my old Gameness. So, here are the measurements for two different gis. It would be interesting if someone got a new Gameness single weave A2 so that we could see how much they really shrink.
    I will also update the stats of the Keiko after I've shrunk it a little so people can see how much they can expect it to change with 10-15 minutes of low heat drying. I imagine I will eventually be getting it tailored exactly how I want so I can keep this is a competition gi.

    Keiko Raca Limited Edition Kimono / Gi - White
    A2 = 5'7'' - 6'0''ft / 169 - 177cm 141 - 176lb / 65 - 80Kg

    Sleeve width: 14 3/4"
    Sleeve length: 29" (taken from outside of collar to tip)
    Collar length: 77 1/2"
    Bottom width: 59"
    Pant width: 19 1/4"
    Pant length: 38 1/4"

    Gameness Single Weave Gi
    A2 5'.7" - 5'.9" 140lbs - 165lbs
    One year of use, estimated total dry time of 15 minutes on low heat when new


    Sleeve width: 13 3/4"
    Sleeve length: 26 3/8" (taken from outside of collar to tip)
    Collar length: 68 1/2"
    Bottom width: 57 1/2"
    Pant width: 17 3/4"
    Pant length: 35 1/4"

    My Krugan took a shit on me and split along one of the knees... Just got a Koral in the mail and it seems like a superior Gi...
