    So I'm trying to buy a gi, because I found a place to train finally.

    I'm looking for a durable, cheapish gi because I'll only be wearing the gi 2-days a week (the rest of the training is either no-gi or stand-up).

    I'm confused on what exactly to get.

    For example, I was looking at this: http://www.heimas.com/productdetails.php?product_id=27

    Does that include the pants? Because it's only describing the top, but I consider a "uniform" to be the top and the pants.

    Also, on that same site, I couldn't find a place to buy a white belt. They only sell colored belts.

    Should I try to get my stuff from a different site?

    Gameness is a great gi, although I do not like it for some reason. Try the Mizuno, or just speak to Ron.

    Okay, another question:

    What do the sizes mean (A2, A3) etc.

    I'm 6'5-6'6'' about 220lbs.. I have no idea what size to get and that site doesn't have a chart...

    Your a size A5 (Brazilian sizing) or a size 7(international). The HCK gis come with a white belt. The other brands I carry you would have to order a belt. The white belt are in the section with the HCK and Gameness belts (it's in the drop down menu with the color belts). If your just starting out and wan t a great gi that you can keep as you get better start out with the HCK. The Adidas gis as does all the other brands do come with a pair of pants.

    Yeah, I just got the invoice e-mail. Thanks.. You have a great site and I'll get all my MMA gear from it from now on..

    Also, I think the Gi I ordered came with pants, because that's what it had in the picture (The gi top on the left and pants on the right..) If it doesn't, it's not a big deal, because I could always get them later.

    Anyway, thanks for all the help.
