Gi weight

Hi, I study Karate. I have a student Gi and need an upgrade badly! I'm 5'10 3/4, 36 waist, 215 lbs.
My student Gi is a 6 and the top fits but the bottoms are to long, I keep hiking them up in class.

I like the 8.5 oz GI but I wanted to get a heavier GI than I have know.
Is the 8 oz GI equivalent to a student GI?

What size and weight do you recommend.

love you site, Thanks,

Hi Roy. Most student "starter" uniforms are 6 or 7 ounce. When you jump up to 8.5, you are in the middleweight realm. Personally, I recommend 10oz for people looking to do a noticeable upgrade.

The size 6 is still probably your best bet, unless you don't mind a little snugness in the jacket. With a 10oz gi you can usually cuff the pants if the length is a bit too long.

A size 4 would be best for his weight, but he might find the pant legs and sleeves a little short (Above the ankle and behind the wrist). If that's a concern, go for the 5.

size question

Hi ... I'm a female, 5'4", 125 lbs., with a 28" waist. Should I order a 2 or a 3 karate gi? I REALLY don't want to hem the pants :-)

I think the size 2 is the right choice, especially if you want to avoid hemming.

Sizing and cut

I am 6"1" @ 215lbs, athletic build. According to the chart I could use a 5 or 6. Based on your knowledge what do you recomend?

I think a size 6 would be best, especially if you experience a little shrinking in the wash.

Hey Juan. Most debit cards can be used exactly like credit cards, especially if they have a little 'visa' or 'mastercard' logo on them.

Great Product

This uniform is great, I ordered it for all three of my kids and myself for our everyday workouts. Light enough to move comfortably but yet heavy enough for that snap sound on the techniques. To top it off, does not require excessive ironing. Easy care, wear it straight from the dryer.
