The guys at my club said the Sirius gi's were really comfortable to wear and very soft. They are also quite hot though.

But new gi's have not stood the test of time yet. Lets see how they look and feel, but most importantly perform after about 50 washes. I ain't knocking Sirius gi's. I am just not jumping on the bandwagon until I see some dirty ass ragged Sirius gi covered in old blood spots with yellow armpits still holding strong where the knees haven't been ripped out and the seams are all together.

My blue Atama goldweave has worn like iron for the last year, with about the same use as the white. As near as I can tell, it has barely faded. The collar is good as new.
Say what you will about Atama, but they've never done me wrong.
Yrkroon9: Out of curiousity, exactly what circumstances on this planet would lead you to lend your prized gi to anyone? And what brand was it, Ouano?

Yes. It was my Ouano. The old school double weave that hasn't been made in years.
Here is the circumstance. There was a kid, a friend, who trained at the same gym I did. He was 16 when he got his gi and obviously outgrew that **** pretty fast. And we were headed to a tournament. He needed another gi badly. And my Ouano was just a little small for me. So I offered it to him.
He never returned it. Months went by of me asking for it. I had a sneaking suspicion it got ruined or something because he never wore it to class.
And then I got kicked from the gym. Never to see these guys again and the chances of me getting this gi back is about ohhhh I dunno. 1 in 1,000,000?
The easiest thing to do was try to buy another.

Of course, Atama *mailed* me the gi Express when I paid for UPS Worldwide Express, so I bitched at them today and they should have another order flying past it for arrival tomorrow morning. I then have three nights to pound the crap out of it and get the flags on for the tournament.

If money is no object: Koral MKM
I've had mine for nearly a year and a half now, and it still feels as good as when I first wore it. Never had a better gi.
Of course, for what you pay for it, you'd be pissed if it wasn't.

if u r just starting jits, get a $50 atama judo gi. no need to have 50 patches and a $300 gi and still get your ass handed to you when u r on the mat. besides...if you quit....$50 is not a lot.
www.jokerjitsu.com has reviews for a bunch of different gi manufacturers
i got an A2 Keiko blue limited edition if anyone want to buy it off of me :P
only been used 3x and washed twice....just a little long for me.

There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.
