Re: What dogi do you wear in Aikido class? (brand, weight)
I always recommend getting two; depending if you can afford and how often you train. Its nice to spread-load the wear and tear, and alternate wear in case you aren't able to get a wash in.
I really don't like the super heavy double weave gi. I have a couple that just sit in my bin. I really like my Tokon Europa brushed cotton karate gi. Its really strong (I even wear it to judo sometimes), but lightweight. Minuzo is good, but expensive. I primarily use some relatively inexpensive Century single weave, my karate gi, and some $45 one I found at a martial arts surplus store in Manhattan (don't remember brand). I do have the gi spoken about in the previous thread in this category.
