I usually throw out my bag gloves at least once a year. After 4 hrs a week of punching, for a year, they're usually done, soft as a pillow.

Shin protectors usually last me at least two years, sometimes less.

Mouth guards I replace about once a year. I should probably change them more ofen.

My wife usually tosses out my clothes, when she's decided that they're too worn and ratty to be seen in the wash with all her designer stuff.

I throw out gear when I buy better stuff. I've never worn out a piece of equipment before that happened.

I'm kinda wondering what to do with my huge, baggy Toraki gi when all the slack makes it unacceptable for BJJ. I can't just keep washing my Atama every night...

See, if you were married, you wouldn't have to worry about this. Because you wouldn't be allowed to buy any better stuff, until you wore out your old stuff.

If she's spending money on designer clothes, she better be hot

That's true j4, I've never been married, and I don't plan on being for a lonnnnnnng time. Unless of course she's really hot and loaded. But I will never be lucky enough to land a chick like that.

I haven't been in MA long enough to wear out any gear, but I imagine Ill throw it out only when its absolutely unusable anymore. (I imagine Duct Tape can keep that stuff alive for awhile longer).

Why throw out stinky things that perverted romos on ebay will pay good money for?

Use your head.
