    neat little analysis. well formatted for readability, too.

    some days, i wonder if i'm the only guy in the world who prefers century jiu jitsu gis to everything else...

    what IS the subject of the next survey?

    Either no-gi equipment (probably rashguards and fight shorts) or another gi survey that goes into demographics like body type, rank, etc.

    I actually like the century as well...not sure what sub-brand/type it is though. Nice and light...I have a Mark Swain double-weave that pretty much chokes me out when I stretch, let alone roll with someone.

    Has anyone had any experience with Hybrid or Neda Kimonos? I ask because I had never heard of Hybrid until recently, and Neda are the only Gis I've ever worn.

    Two jackets that I really like are KWON and DAX, not jiu jitsu gi, but really good solid jackets cut in a European style

    By the way, it is Mike Swain not Mark Swain.

    I bought a Padilla & Sons based largely on this chart. I have to say I like my Vulkan a LOT better. Though I bought my Vulkan before they got over $150.

    I like my new Sick gi, better than my Atama. I was really dissappointed with one I got from Piranha Gear, really weak. My favorite one is my $50 generic judo gi I got at my old JJJ school, it broke in nice, it's a nice medium weight and it's comfortable as Hell.

    Elaborate please? What specifically do or don't you like? I hear the Vulkans are very, very light, which tends to scare me. I've already blown through my first gi top in less than 6 months of regular use, and I never bleached it. It's a "medium" build, based on what I see others wearing at the gym.
