    There are many horror stories about mmagear.com; many of them came about a year or less ago. People had tales of not getting their gear, not getting any e-mail replies or confirmations, and such. But apparently, things are better now. Speaking for myself, I have ordered twice from them (not big orders, btw), and had no problems. I got my stuff fairly quickly, with no hassles. It's just a judgement call when shopping on the internet. You can't completely trust any net retailer, as they're "invisible". I think you should be fine, but be vigilant, and call (or e-mail) if you start to suspect the order isn't being followed up on.

    As far as i'm aware they're now out of buisness but are still taking orders - the brazilain authoritys are looking into it.

    I know three different people from training who've placed orders with nothing sent out now.

    basically - do NOT use mmagear.com

    I ordered once from them. I had to wait about a month and it was difficult to get answers but at least they answered after 5,6 e-mails and finally I got my stuff.

    Not so much solid as I would say guaranteed NOT to get your gi. Out of curiosity, did you use the search function? There are probably more than a few pages of threads of nothing but negative comments about the company. That was the most spoken about topic for quite some time here. I also heard from some sources down there that they are closed for business.

    I have never had a problem with Rio Fight Wear or Jiu Jitsu Pro Gear. In fact, they have both received the Brandinho seal of approval. Especially RFW. Out of curiosity, what type of gi are you ordering?

    Roy Cullen of fightgear.net posted about it here not so long ago, do a search and you'll find all about it.

    I heard on Monday that the owner has basically done a runner. This came from someone at one of the manufacturers. Apparently there have been severe money problems. I know at least two manufacturers who didn't get paid and we hear every day horror stories about customers who ordered and never got their order. We worked closely with the owner for a few months but that was before the big problems started. The Brazilian trade organisation Procon are invetigating plus they have not updated their stock for months now and the owner is not even answering emails. We do know that the owver did try and sell the whole company to dealers around the world.

    If your worried about it issue a stop payment order on the credit card and that should pretty much end that transaction then buy from a reputable business
