    I am interested in the Ouano 99 Pearl (blue), and have searched but not finding any reviews. If anyone has any experience with this kimono please drop some knowledge for me, thanks.

    It's an awesome gi. Looks damn clean. I just bought one recently. The new Ouano's(99) are tapered too so they would have a nice cut/fit to them. Happy hunting!

    the ouano 99 gi is awsome, I own the blue, the lettering is done in silver and gives it a slick look. the other color combo's white(black lettering) black with (red lettering) the black reminds me of a Kung-fu uniform. of all 3 I perfer the blue. I have had mine for about 5 months now and it has held up well. I got mine from cageside

    It's a good light gi but it doesn't last long if you dry your gis. The design on the inside back is kind of irritating too. They look clean though!

    Can anyone compare these to the old Ouano gold weaves? I have one of the older ones, and was considering getting a new one, but I tend to be leery of redesigns when I liked the old one so much.

    I'm looking at one of these, not sure what to get though. I'm going to ask for one for Christmas. I love my Koral, but I'm not going to ask my parents to pony up $175 for a Koral gi though.

    I have one, not a big fan of the drawstring in the pants, I find they come undone a lot which causes them to fall down
