    Ordering my first gi,

    Noticed some advertised as kimono. Is this a full gi/exactly the same, or is it just the top half of a gi.

    Cheers.

    It really kind of depends on the retailer.
    There probably is some official definition somewhere of the difference. But I have seen them labeled both ways at different sites.

    Also size wise, I fall into a different height category than I go weight. Is it better to go for a gi that is 1 inch shorter than my height or 10 pounds heavier than my weight.
