    A jacket could weigh in at over 2 lbs with lapels etc, i'd guess.
    ah.
    guess I should have read it closer.

    IMHO... I purchased a Bull Dog gi for the Pan tourney and it worked very well. Made from blue single weave fabric 100% cotton. Especially designed for competition.

    Manufactured by Koral Kimonos this Jiu Jitsu Gi is a great choice for those who want invest less on equipment. This jiu-jitsu kimono is not pre-shrunk. The review says it shrinks up to 15%. I washed mine several times, always air dried it. I picked up an A3 and now it fits perfect (I'm just under 5'11" X 180lbs) a few weeks later. Like it was custom fit.

    And regarding the comp thing, approved by the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation for use in competition.

    The best part is $99! Oh, and they haven't been turning on the a/c yet in my school so we've had some pretty warm days rolling already. The bull dog is suprisingly light. Very breathable. I really liked how "plain" the gi was. The one I picked up didn't have the bulldog on the back though.

    I hoped this helped some.

    Weigh in wearing a flimsy karate gi, so long as it's the same color as what you grapple in.

    I have been pretty happy with Submission FC. They are very inexpensive and have failed to disappoint me so far. They have a light gi as well as a pearl weave that might be what you are looking for.

    This is the Advanced Grappling forum. I do not allow off topic posts in this forum unless you're a more experienced grappler than I am.

    So from here on out, anyone that makes a post in this thread that does not discuss the merits or shortcomings a lightweight JJ gi will be receiving an infraction.

    And on that subject; I never knew what these gis were for until Gezere mentioned it to me last month. Then I had a visiting purple belt tell me a lot of these gis tear during competition. So, despite the charts and earlier existing threads, I never knew the complexity of this particular issue.

    I've heard and seen guys get DQ'd for the dumbest reasons regarding their uniforms. I went to one tournament where they wouldn't let my guy compete because he had a double weave Judo uniform. Then the idea of weighing in with your gi (I know they've been doing it for years) is foreign to me. Remember I was competing in smaller tournaments since 1996. I didn't come across uniform weigh in until 2003, which is when I pretty much went no gi.
