Re: Need light, compact gi
I have a (cheap) tiger claw karate-style dogi. They don't customize sizes, so I bought it one size larger to buy some room for shrinking and to keep enough below the belt-line and had the sleeves and pantlegs hemmed.
I tend to use this dogi as my "backup" (I hate putting a wet dogi back on during a second session of a seminar). This dogi doesn't take up much room in the bag...
Hope this helps.
