    Gi Pants Blowout!

    I've now split all three pairs of Gi pants that I have. I have one very nice pair, from Atama that I split right at the crotch seam, repaired, and re-split, and two cheap pairs that have split either at the same seam, or at the fabric just to the side of the seam.

    It was suggested that my gi pants might be too small for me, but with my short stubby legs going up a size means hemming a number of inches off the legs.

    Is there a stretchier pair of gi pants that can be ordered separately from a jacket? Specifically in an A-4/A-5 size?
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

    I'm curious for "separates," suppliers, as well; A2 jacket fits me OK, but the pants are too short.

    Koral makes a pair of pants called "X-Tretch".

    http://www.koralusa.com/categoria.ph...&cd_produto=22

    I own a pair and am happy with them.

    The fabric is a soft cotton (not the rougher nylon/blend that is common) rip-stop and the crotch panel is a 2-way stretch. My hips are pretty flexibly and other pants will bind when these don't.

    The sizes seem to run big. I normally wear an A4 top and bottom (I'm 6'4", 225lbs), but the A4 X-Tretch pants were way too big. After exchanging them with Koral (very easy to do), I have pair of A3's and, after a little bit of shrinkage, they fit perfectly. If I were 25+ lbs heavier, the A4's would have fit well.

    There are other pants which have stretch material, but I don't have any experience with them.

    EDIT:

    Adding link to the Sprawl Gi Flex pants:

    Again, no experience with them, but just providing the info.

    Skippy, I'll look into the A-4's thanks!

    Colin, I wish that was an option for me, but Judo guys tend to frown on that.
