I might not be the best guy to review jiu-jitsu kimonos, because:
1) I still use some cheap $40 judo ones I got eight years ago.
2) I'm not terribly picky.
3) I have never had a gi that I particularly disliked.
4) I'm annoyed that they're even called kimonos. You know what a kimono really is?
1) Cheap Asian World / Century judo gis. They're fine. They don't have stiff anti-choke collars but come on, if you're that good, you shouldn't need your collar to save you. They're a little long in the sleeve and "skirt" but that's fine. And they don't come with a million patches on them.
2) ATAMA. Historically the most popular brand of gi, yet I've only owned one, and that's because it said "Royce Gracie" on it and I was a Royce Gracie student at the time. It was fine. Functional. Got the job done.
3) Krugan Denim Gi. Yes, I actually had one of these bad boys. Still do, actually. These were on the market for like ten minutes in the early 00's, and Josh Hesser and I grabbed some while we could. They don't feel great to roll in (imagine rolling in, you know, jeans) but the cool factor made it worth it.
PS: Josh was told by a NAGA official to go change his gi when he showed up with his. Listen, NAGA... NO ONE tells a guy with a Purple Rain patch on his gi pants to go get changed).
5) Keiko Raca - I'm sort of on the skinnier side, so Keiko's seem to fit me just right. At 5'10", 170, A3s are perfect. The patches are cool without being gaudy, and they're durable. I'd recommend them. I have one each in white, black, and navy.
6) MKimonos - Lately, I've been interested in plain, white, unadorned gis, which is MKimono's thing. I just grabbed one recently and have only rolled in it twice, but so far it's pretty good. A couple things about MKimono though... the "summer" one is basically a thick karate uniform, without the standard judo weave. I didn't know what to expect, so when this showed up I was a little surprised. If I like it, I'll probably try one of their middleweights. Also, MKimonos is a Swiss company, meaning shipping is $$$ (specifically, $45 to Norwich, Connecticut). However, it arrived about three days after ordering it, so at least that.
7) Gracie Sports - I'd kill to get a white one of these. They are a Brazilian company and currently not producing. I'll even take a used one. Let me know if you have one.
8) The others - Shoyoroll, Origin, Breakpoint, Howard, Gameness, Tatami, Badboy, Fuji, Warrior One, Hayabusa, Storm, Submission, Triumph, Vulkan, Venum, Scramble, Ronin, Lucky, Datsusara... don't know. Never had any. I know people who've had each and I haven't heard many complaints. Personally, I don't like the fancy look that some of these feature, but to each his own.
All I can say is, the ones I've had I've liked. Never had one rip apart (except the Krugan but that only made it cooler) or shrink beyond usefulness.
What are your experiences with, ahem, "kimonos"?
