Women's Grappling Gear
I'm looking for a new long sleeves grappling top. It seems as if we deny the existence of women grapplers because I could not find ANYTHING in google. All the sites I found only had like one or two crappy things under the women's section. I like the "underarmor" feel but I don't like any of the ones on their site. Does anyone know of any good sites that sell grappling gear for women?

I bought one of my friends a medium Hunter rashguard from riofightwear.com and it fit her well. She's about 140lbs so you may want a small. Riofightwear also has excellent shipping unless you order some of the gear they drop-ship from CombatSports.com. http://www.riofightwear.com/index.php?cPath=5_9
Atama has a Women's section but from the photos it looks like they just colour the men's gear pink. http://atama-kimonos.com/products/ra..._pink_long.htm

I actually shop at surfing/bathing suit stores for my rashguards. Lots of selection, sizes, colors and sleeve lengths (mine's 3/4 sleeve). Generally buy men's though, just small sized. I like the fit better.

I'll be wearing pink gi pants from now on because someone washed them with something red...
At NAGA atlanta last year there was this girl who dominated the under 135 division sporting all pink. Tight jiujitsu but overcompensating for participating in traditionally masculine activities by wearing all pink is pretty lame imo.

Okay so it disgusts me too, but it's also kind of funny."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

I really badly need some shorts, but normal boardies don't fit me well (damn my hips!).
I'm tempted to get a pink rash vest. It will be the only item of pink I own, and being the only woman in my club doesn't make me stand out nearly enough, I need fuschia pink damnit!
