    I think this might become the best budget gi of 2013 and surpass even the mighty Fuji single weave in terms of value.

    What do you think?

    How good is the fuji single weave? Cause I am in the market for a gi. I just started doing bjj and I was barrowing my buddies gi for a bit. But I am on a low budget haha.

    The fuji single weave is a pretty good gi as well. I think that I prefer the core gi because it's a pearl weave and the pant drawstring is a bit better.

    They're both roughly the same price at mma outlet, so it's a bit of a toss up with regard to price.

    Ya the only problem that I saw was they don't have any A3's for the size selection :(

    It looks like they're all out in every size/ color combination. It's a shame, because the gi does look like very good value for money.

    I took the advice of this forum and purchased the Core Gi. Overall I consider it a good value. Sleeve and pant length are just right after wash and dry (med heat). Only two small cons on the Gi. The junction at the chest/deltoid area has bunched up a little more than most Gis I have worn or seen, and it doesn't breathe as well as my others (Vulcan ultra, Gtma double, OTM SLC). After about 20 training sessions the gi has held up well and not stretched. The sleeve openings are fairly tapered and have not lost their shape. I am 6'1.5 190lbs (for those interested in sizing)and purchased an A3. The $70 price tag, lack of bling, and quick delivery left me very satisfied with my purchase.

    disclaimer
    The fact that I dyed the Gi burgundy might be contributing to diminished ventilation, but in my experience I consider it unlikely.
