    When doing no-gi BJJ, do you have a favorite brand of pants to wear? I've been wearing my usual Underarmour pants that I normally work out in, but they are the type that have a zipper up the side of the calf which sometimes jabs into me uncomfortably during rolling. I've seen people wear the gi pants with a rashguard; just wondering if people had recommendations.

    I wear Gi pants a lot especially in the winter. My favorite shorts are my Full Contact Fighter shorts. I've had them for over two years and they are still holding up very well. I had a pair of Sprawls and GOMGI that started popping stitches after a couple of months.

    Take a look at what I'm wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys.

    If you wear Gi pants, isn't that rolling "half Gi"

    I should have specified that I don't compete (yet), and I want pants to prevent burning my legs when they get dragged across the mats.

    Nogi - Sprawls

    Gi for training - Summer weave Vulcan (so fresh and so clean)

    Gi for competition - Seishin Double Weave

    If you're looking for something cheap and just to protect from rashes, i'd suggest looking for a good pair of Judo pants. They are pretty rugged and will last a long time.

    Wear gi pants; they're designed for grappling and are extremely comfortable.

    I usually wear gi pants because I don't have knee pads and I want to avoid mat burn. I'll probably buy some sprawl shorts eventually.
