I sent the following recently to e-bogu.com about their dogi. It's been a little while, and I still haven't heard back, so I thought I'd check and see if anyone around here could help me out...
Alright, stupid question here regarding your judogi/aikidogi:
what does the gram weight differentiations actually refer to,
i.e., your 450g dogi, 650g dogi, and 900g dogi?
Are these the weights of a square yard of the respective
fabrics? Are these the total weights of the respective dogi
themselves? Are these the weights of the dogi jackets?
Also, does anyone know if the 450g, 650g, and 900g are single-weave or double-weave?
Thank you for your help, :)

I believe the 450 g is single weave and the 900 g would be double...I'm not sure about it though. I do have a 450 g judo/aikido dogi from e-bogu and I love it because it's heavy enough not to rip but it's light enough not to bog me down when it's hot.

Have the 650g aikido one and it's a blessing for heavy sweating; love thatgi
