    Ouano 99 Pearl, or a Gameness Pearl (I have already ruled out vulkan)? Thanks for the feedback.

    I've heard nothing but good things about Ouano. But since i'm just new to the game, I don't think im too reliable lol. But my first Gi will be a Ouano, as they sell those at the school im going to.

    Both are good gi's. The Gameness Pearl has thicker lapels if that is important to you and I think the Ouano is a little bit lighter. I don't think you could go wrong with either one.

    The only guy I know with an Ouano loves it. The only other company that has only positive responses from people I know is Koral.

    There have been complaints from people with Sirius, Keiko Raca, and many from Gameness owners. Most of the negatives have to do with fit issues.

    I have read alot of complaints about gameness patches and stuff staying on, but are there really any problems with the kimono itself?

    A bunch of people had shrink to fit issues, and one guy who only hang dries says the chest and shoulders are too tight.

    My lapel patch ripping was a positive. Collar is almost choke-proof.

    On the upside they are very durable. I've only seen one with a rip, and it's several years old.

    They are a good deal at some sites. A Pearl for $99 is tempting, but I'll go elsewhere.
