    I just ordered my first Atama double-weave and it occurred to me that I just purchased my fourth kimono (my third Atama). I think that four is definitely more than plenty to last me a few years.

    How many Kimonos are you guys rocking?

    I'm thinking that my next kimono will be a green Koral, but I want to break in my new Atamas for at least a few months before I get a new one.

    I have 3 in my current rotation

    -The newer mundial Atama (love the cut and fit)

    -A Ouano (old version without ouano on the lapel)

    -A Sirius jacket with Ouano pants

    I had more in the rotation, but some have srunk to the point where they do not fit well anymore (regular style Atama, and 2 War kimono)

    3 works good for me right now

    I must admit, I'm a gi lover. I have nine. Here goes:
    Atama Single
    Rickson Sport
    Bad Boy - Dragao
    Bad Boy - Atama
    Bad Boy - Isami
    Sirius Double
    Keiko Raca Special
    Koral MKM

    And last but not least, I was given a Lucky gi by someone at the academy. Had been worn four times. My favorite is the Bad Boy Atama and the Koral MKM.

    3 GIs so far.

    HCK Competition Double Weave.
    Padilla & Sons Single
    Generic club Gi

    Planning on either getting a Padilla & Songs blue gold weave or the Keico Raca Blue Limited as all my other Gis are white.

    I asked my coach once and he said he's got something like 12 Gis and has thrown out probably more than that in his career.

    Hmm...got two atamas, a koral and a vulkan. I had two more atamas before but one (my first one ever) ripped after a year and half I think and I gave the other one to a friend.

    Atama Gold Weave and a Vulkan. I barely wear the Atama anymore. It's just too damn hot when rolling in it.

    just one, and it's killing me now that Im going to BJJ more than twice a week... got to get another one soon.

    Need some suggestions:

    What is the best gi, period?
    What is the best gi for the money (best value)?
    What online store has the best selection?

    Oh ya the one I have now is a white Atama (Single weave, i think)...
