I rock pricey gis, but I didn't pay money for them either. I personally like the confidence in knowing that my uniforms will LAST, and be comfortable in the process. I'm like that with all of my gear, though, field gear included.
Wait, what? A rubber collar?

Testify! I just picked up one of these, and it rocks. Comfortable, durable and a nice, thick collar. Also, the unbleached + subtle logo look is old school, the women of my village might have knitted it for me, their chosen warrior.
