Product Description
    • Classic white
    • Traditional cut
    • Heavyweight 100% cotton (11 oz.)
    • Bound side vents with tie cords
    • Elastic waistband with drawstring
    • Triangular crotch panel for increased mobility
    • Available in mix-and-match sizing

    For serious martial arts training. This uniform is constructed from super comfortable 11 oz. 100% cotton with 7 rows of stitching throughout the sleeves and cuffs. If you consider 14 oz. too heavy, but still want a high-level snap in your gi, then this is a great choice. Experienced practitioners will appreciate the comfort and feel of this traditionally-cut heavyweight gi, as well its quick responsiveness.

    Both sides of the gi jacket feature reinforced side vents as well as additional tie cords. These tie cords are easily adjustable and securely fastened for the best fit possible.

    The gi pants are a very sturdy heavyweight cotton that offers the type of movement and responsiveness you'd expect from well-made gi pants. The triangular crotch panel helps keep the pants comfortable while training high kicks, etc. This panel also keeps unnecessary stress from compromising the seams in the crotch area.

    The waistband features a combination of elastic and drawstring. While the elastic comfortably accommodates a wide range of waist sizes, the added drawstring lets you cinch up the pants and secure minor adjustments before training.

    For the KD Elite brand, you can order a mix-and-match uniform set. Please use the first pull-down menu to select a jacket size and the second pull-down menu to select pant size.

I've been studying martial arts for about two years now. I am 5'2 and about 170lbs. I need to find a uniform that will fit after shrinkage and that won't open up and display my chest (I wear an undershirt but it's still annoying). What size/weight should I get?

Hi aidi. I think the size 3 is going to be the best fit for you, with a cuff or two of the pant legs and sleeves. To browse our brands that have size 3, click here: http://www.karatedepot.com/Karate-Uniforms~175~cat13~Size~3~1.html.

Kata Gi

Hi, will this be a goid kata gi? Or this is just an ordinary training gi? I don't do karate but would like to surprise my son who does. Thank you

Hi IceLady. I would qualify this as a good all-around gi, functional for comfort and kata. However, if you want a high performing kata gi I would recommend one of the two following models: un-hv-860, un-hv-861.

Longer pants without being too baggy

Yes, I want to wear a ?mid-heavy weight karate gi to Aikido, but just for the summer. The jacket is too hot, plus I prefer non-traditional pants (elastic waist drawstring). My Aikido gi is GTMA brand, size 3 w/ trad. drawstring. Guessing single weave since it was under $60, but it feels heavy. After washing in warm water and drying 2x, the pants are shorter than I'd like (above ankles), but the waist finally fits. The jacket fits too. Should I get 3 top, 4 pants for length or would they be huge? Are Aikido pants naturally shorter? I'm 5'7" and 125 lbs with 29in waist. I have a long torso and shorter legs, but again the GTMA pants are short. If not this gi, is there another that would work?

Hi oddsox. I don't believe aikido pants are designed to be naturally shorter. I would recommend a size 3 for you. You mention you have shorter legs so I don't think going longer with the pants is advisable.

I am new here

So I am a beginner in karate. I'm quite skinny for my height so I don't know which size to get. I am 5'10 and my weight is around 120 lbs. Can someone help me with the size?

Hey Waffle. With your height you could go 4 or 5. If you intend to hot wash and use a dryer when cleaning your uniform I would definitely go with the 5. If you intend to do cold wash and hang dry you could go 4 which would be a bit more form fitting for your current weight.

very unhappy with shrinkage

i loved this gi when i first took it out of the package. had great feel and snap which is what it advertised. unfortunately, i washed and dried the gi with my other whites in hot water and it shrunk 6 full inches in the pant legs and sleeves. i know because i ripped the pants training in the garage and compared original pair to the new pair i ordered separately. and the texture was ruined by drying as well. no more snap and no more soft, fluid feel of fabric. who wants to be afraid of washing their clothes? very dissapointed

Sorry these didn't live up to your expectations Robert! If you think they ripped prematurely let us know at csupport@karatedepot.com and we'll see about a replacement. As for the shrinking, that's actually very typical and you'll experience that with just about every brand. I recommend utilizing cold wash and hang dry, it has served me well over the years.

Best gi I've ever owned!

I have found the KD Elite 11oz. fabric to be the PERFECT middleground between too-thin-to-last and too-heavy-for-comfort. This fabric is stout yet pliable, and the seams are stiched well. As for fit, I always intentionally shrink my uniforms down by washing and drying in hot (for the first washing anyway); this is so I'll then be able to wash it with my "normal" white laundry and not ever have to worry about shrinkage issues. So, in my case, being 5'10",170lbs, the size 5 (both jacket and pants)fit absolutely perfect after force-shrinking. I must admit however that I'm partial to a more "traditional" fit...so if you like your gi a little on the baggy side, you may wish to consider trying a 6. In any case, you can't go wrong with the overall quality of this set.
The only bad thing associated with the KD Elite 11oz. series, is that its availability seems to be very spotty in the more popular sizes (especially size 5).

Ok, got it. I don't have a size 1 on hand to get those measurements quickly but I'll tell the warehouse to get one to me. Unfortunately this might take longer than you'd like, so in the meantime I recommend the size 1 based on the height and weight you provided.

Additional measurements needed

Can you tell me the length of the jacket from shoulder to bottom,the approx. waist measurement, and the shoulder measurement from end of sleeve to end of other sleeve? My son is 4'5" and 90 lbs, so would wear the size 1 but he doesn't want the jacket to be too short or the shoulders too baggy. He likes a trim look for competitions. Thank you!

Hi bwellis. Our focus over the past month or so was to get fuji and macho back in stock and increase selection. We'll be turning our attention back to KD soon. I don't have a specific predicted date for you, but we are hoping by the end of the month.

Skinny Teenager

Hello! My son is ready for his third gi and I am trying to do a better job of the fit. He is 5'6" and only 115 pounds. The size for his age calls for 150 lb. person... what can you suggest?
Many Thanks

A size 3 is probably the happy medium between height and weight. It'll be a little baggy, but he shouldn't be swimming in it.

Size questions on 11oz cotton gi

I am female, 5'2" tall and 105 pounds.

Currently, I wear a middleweight KD Elite jacket blend in size 3. The fit is excellent. Is the heavyweight cotton jacket cut the same?

As for the pants, I currently wear a size 3 that I got from another store, since it specified a lower weight range (110-140) for someone 5'2". For the KD Elite heavyweight cotton pants, the size chart shows size 3 as being for a 5'2" person weighing 150 pounds. Should I chose the pants based on weight (size 2) or height (size 3)? Thanks!

Hi Sgt. The jacket is cut similarly although you will notice some differences in the material thickness, cuffs, and lapel. The size however should be consistent.

As for the pants, I think you'd be most comfortable in a size 2. That being said, the pant legs may rest above your ankles as opposed to laying near the top of the foot. Consider whether or not that is ok with you.

Need a size.

I'm 5' 10", 230 lbs.

Going by weight, I would need a top in the range of a 6 or 7, but I'm afraid that it will be far too large in the sleeves and length. While I have a little belly, I'm not obese. I'd like to go with a 5, but I have no idea how these are sized relative to weight. I know they fold over and tie on the inside.

My waist is approximately 38". I'm assuming a 4 would do the trick for the bottoms.

I would recommend a size 6 for the top and 5 for the bottom, cuffing the sleeves if necessary.

A size 5 is probably your best option. It might be a bit shorter in sleeve and pant legs than the 6, but you won't be 'swimming' in it.

Gi Size

I'm 5 feet 9 inchs tall and weigh 170lbs. I want to order the 11oz gi but not sure of the shriking factor. I like a gi that's somewhat loose on me for freedom of arm movement. will the #5 shrink down enough if needed? I'm thinking one wash in hot water if it's too large out of the package.

I take karate and do a lot of jumps and spin kicks.

I think the 5 is the right choice. You'll be able to cuff the pant legs and sleeves or do a little strategic shrinking if necessary.

Sizing for the Ladies

Hey KD,

I've been doing karate for a couple years now and I've been through a few gis at this point and the big issue I have (as well as all the other "blessed" females in my dojo) is finding one that fits everywhere. In my experience a 5 gaped open incredibly awkwardly (I do wear an undershirt, but its still weird) and a 4 bunches up over the belt and pulls in awkward places (therefore, I'm constantly fidgeting and readjusting it). Admittedly, I've never gotten a gi from the same vendor twice in a row, but due to this, I'm clueless on what size to get. Thus, since I like the sound of this gi and the ability to size the top and bottom separately, I'd like your opinion on what size to get. So, I'll give you all the fun facts I can: I'm 5'3", 135 pounds, with a 33" waist, 38" bust and 37" hips. What do you recommend? Thanks in advance for your advice!

Hi Kira. One general observation that might be useful to you - the heavier and thicker the gi, the more likely you'll have issues with it gaping open. The material can jut out at awkward angles and stay there. Further, if the material is displaced over the belt it can stay bunched up more easily.

Therefore I think an 8-11 ounce option in the 3 size might be the best choice. If you're a little concerned about it shrinking and becoming too tight, you could go with a 4.
