Thread: Scotland's favourite Gi's?

  1. #1

    Default Scotland's favourite Gi's?

    Rather than post in the BJJ section, I would be more interested to find out from the Scottish MMA/BJJ community, what is your Gi of choice & why?

    A while ago I bought one from Blitz. Still have it now and it serves me well. However, I've seen numerous people with the same gi, seems quite popular.

    When I first started everyone seemed to own a Koral gi.
    I am number 1, because Picard says so.

    Ask Frakes!

    Do you know a Fridgeless Fail? Send them HERE!

    Got 3 main ones I use, my Keiko Raca, my Isami and my Ouano summer weave. All are really well made, tough and have kept their size really well.
    Scotlands No. 1 Timekeeper also available as a BJJ/No Gi referee

    I've got a few.

    Vulkan is my favourite, lightest and best fit.

    Korals ok but doesn't fit me well.

    Kieko Raca's are good. (Got a lightweight one aswell which is pretty similar to the Vulkan.

    Gameness is ok but really heavy.

    Red Nose is cool and a bit different.

    Lucky ones looks great but didn't fit me well. Good resale value.

    Atama are really good.

    Never tried and British ones.

    I've got a Faixa Rua leve and a Fuji. Both were relatively cheap and are lasting well with nearly 3 years weekly use and very little sign of wear. I'd happily buy either again.

    I don't like the gi's that are made from that ripstop fabric. It's like sandpaper when you get gi choked.

    That's the one I had, bought it from On The Mat. I made úS0 profit on it selling it to a dude from Hong Kong on E bay.
    It was in good nick though.
