    for me? It is the Adidas single weave training gi... It sucks. Imagine a bastard child of a judo and bjj gi that took all of it's worst attributes. The sleeves are wide like a judo gi and short like a bjj gi; the collar sucks and the gi skirt is long like a judo gi... the worst gi ever. I should have bought a fuji instead... SO I DID! let's recap: adidas single weaves gis suck.

    I believe when I joined the place I'm at, I tried to save about $30 by getting a Sun gi instead of an Atama gi. I didn't know any better. That's the worst $70 I ever spent in my life! I recently got an Impact gi off ebay for about $45 and it feels TONS better....and I'm sure that Impact gi isn't even great!

    Hopefully sometime soon I'll spring $100 for a Gameness Platinum. Seems like the best buy for your money, or the Atama my instructor can get me at his cost.

    Sun gi's suck!!!!

    I hate to say it, but my Sirius Gold Weave shrunk so much I can barely wear it. It went from an A4 to a A2.5.

    Yea I heard Adidas gis suck. I had a HSU judo gi and a Fuji gi. My mom threw away my HSU gi and bought me the Fuji gi. I kind of miss the HSU gi. It was extremely durable. I used it for over 2 years and it held up great.

    The same thing happened to me, though strangly it only happened to 1 of my 2 Sirius's.

    My blue one didn't shrink much, but my black one shrank like an SOB

    He offered a replacement but the original was screwed up in shipping and took forever and day to get to me as well; It was just becoming a headache. Plus, RDFC started to carry Gi's and I bought a Kieko Raca for real cheap. Awesome GI.
