    Not very good quality at all. I've seen a few complaints.

    Wow that thing is awesome if your planning on training in the snowy mountains and need cover from your opponent. That is probably the ugliest gi I have ever seen.

    Its a BGG which is basically a fake Gameness. It has a judo skirt and the stitching and material are second rate.

    Thought the same. Looks more like a snow military uniform.

    I've seen that gi in person and it's a P.O.S. Your better off with a HCK in that price range or pay a little more and get the real Gameness gi.

    We can find a lot of good products in Japan but everything here is so expensive.

    For example to get a good GI like Atama, Krugans or Koral i need to pay something close to $200 american dollars.

    No.

    There are only a few stores here so they monopolize the market in BJJ, Grappling, MMA, etc.

    Beside everything in Japan is expensive.

    Any of us can ship to Japan. The HCK gi is way better thn the Atama or Krugan gis. After shipping on a Standard single you would be right at $100US.

    I`m not really interested in GIs.

    I own two already and i think they are enough for now, However I had some trouble trying to find good grappling short pants.

    There is a store here that carry HCK shorts but they are too small. I own Inspirit but i was looking for something else.

    Tapout or Sprawl really need to import to Japan. There is a whole new market here waiting to be discovered by the American brands.

    The HCK's are to small? Can you give detail as to how?
    We can ship Tapout, No Gi (USA) and HCK shorts any where. I have a guy in Aus that carries most of the stuff I have, shipping would be cheapier from him then here in the states.

    I mean the HCK shorts the store carry here are too small. They keep in mind the Japanese market and totally ignore the big size gaijins.

    About shipping from Australia or USA to Japan....how much is the shipping in american dollars please.

    I'll have to check and make sure but it depends on weight and how you want it shipped, by boat is real cheap but takes a month or so. By air is a bit more but it's there in 5-7 days.

    Back to the original question.

    I don't care WHO makes it - if you wear that and you're anything short of goidlike on the mat then you'll look like a tool.

    Exactly. But the only advantage is that no one will know, because they can't see you :eek:
