Great Pants! FYI Size 5 has 50" waist

Love these pants. FYI. Size 5 has a 50" waist. The widest part (just above the gusset seam) is 54" around.

Heavy and Strong

Good quality heavy white cotton. Perfect fit, traditional tie up belt and bonus back pocket. Feels great during training. Also, fit nicely under hakama. Recommended.

I'd recommend a size 2, although you would probably fit in a 1 as well.

size chart...

What is the size chart for this product? I see a size selection but no actual size chart. Plus, lets say I am buying these and I am 5'5 with a 44 waist. what size should I buy? should I buy size 5 or 6? should I buy 7 or 8? should I buy 1 or 2?. It would be nice to have a chart showing actual fits and what is in the range of a comfortable fit at least. So can anyone help me out then?

Hmm, you're right! We don't have the size chart on this page. Check out the bottom of the page un-st-10 for sizing chart access.

To answer the question directly - you'll be all set with a size 5.

I'm 6'3", 235 lbs, 40 inch waist, and 32 inch length. What size should I be ordering? I ordered a size 6 in the 8 oz kd elite pants that you used to offer and they fit perfect without alteration. Sure wish you still offered those :)

Hey Brady - I would still recommend a size 6! I believe you'll find them on par with the old 8oz.

My almost teen-age daughter is 5'2.5" tall, 117 lbs with a waist of 29" (and long legs). What size should I order for her?

I think a size 3 would be best. It will fit now and still have a little extra space for more growth.

size 4 might work, but I suspect a 5 would be most comfortable.

Great product, excellent quality, and fast shipping. I'm really very pleased with these. I'm 6'2" and 260, so someone built like a linebacker has issues at times finding a gi that fits in the leg. They need to be hemmed of course, but otherwise the fit is perfect. I'm stoked with these and will be back for more.

Too big?

Just received these pants today and the are huge. According to size charts on other 12 oz pants of same material, these should be right size. If I wash them, will they shrink? But, if I wash them are they no longer returnable? I'm not sure what I should do...

Hey Eukonidor.Gi pants always seem huge, especially if you aren't used to the traditional drawstring style. These pants follow suit with the other brands so they should do the trick.

Give em a wash and see if they shrink. If they still don't meet your needs, reach out to us at csupport@karatedepot.com and we'll get you taken care of.

Just curious how these worked out for you. I just got mine and they are barely long enough, but huge in the waist. I'm afraid if I wash them, I'll have capri length karate pants! Right now, I can't even cinch them enough to get then snug around the waist. I ordered a 2 and I'm 5'1" about 110 lbs. These seem like they're more tournament length -- they're right at my ankle bone w/out even washing first.

How Much Do These Shrink?

I just received my order, and I'm really bummed. They are barely long enough, but HUGE in the waist. I'm afraid if I wash them, I'll have capri length karate pants that still fall down! Right now, I can't even cinch them enough to get then snug around the waist. I ordered a 2 and I'm 5'1" about 110 lbs. These seem like they're more tournament length -- they're right at my ankle bone w/out even washing first. Not sure if I should wash and dry or just return them. The guy who invents karate uniforms that are normal sized and easier to fit will make a mint!

Hey PL. These pants try to accommodate a wide range of people, so sometimes there are issues like the one you described.

If you'd like to try an exchange for a size 3, reach out to us at csupport@karatedepot.com before you wash them.

But the size two is already too huge in the waist -- and too short. Can someone tell me how these will shrink? What's been the feedback? Do they shrink more in length or girth or both? I wouldn't want them any shorter, but definitely smaller in the legs and waist. Is there hope? Thanks!
by: PL

They will shrink in both length and girth, that's why I was recommending you try a 3 and shrink it down.

OK, might be worth a try. Do you know the length (inseam I guess?) of the 3?
