What is your choice Brand?

    Mon, 2006-10-16 15:03 — cshudson

    What Brand of GI do you guys/gals choose or like the best?

    I found a good deal on ebay luckily, it was my first GI, it is a Pro Force Gladiator single weave (BLUE). I found it on jiu-jitsu-usa.com for $104.95 and i bought it off of ebay for $57.00 shipped to my house.

    hit them up on myspace or call the shop. i am sure they ship.

    well i am not sure cuz i havnt asked but why wouldnt they.

    i heard there is a black one with red stiching. is that true. that would be pretty sick but i didnt see it at the shop.

    I first bought one of the gis they sell on the gracie site....Then i ordered an Atama Mundial...Way more happier with the latter.... im actually gonna get another mundial pretty soon (that ought to help on the not wearing the gi twice before washing thing...) A guy at class has an Atama double weave, its not so good, its pretty damn rough and scrapy

    I will definately get a ATAMA next just because i like those pretty well, alot of guys in my class have them and they seem very worthy.

    In brazil some guys train in a really light gi just so they can get better. Then they compete in a regular gi.

    hello,

    not real knowledgeble about gi's. which would last the longest? assuming full time usage? according to this, it seems like a toss up between atama and lucky? how many different colors do gi's come in. have only seen white and blue. oh, and pink and purple. have heard of black, but have never seen one.

    just wondering.

    thanks.

    I didnt know that in most places you use colored gis when you are higher ranked...i bought a white one first, but i was just going to get a colored one because it seems to me it would get less dirty and be less of a bitch to wash...Does anybody know if there is a blue lucky gi???
