Re: What dogi do you wear in Aikido class? (brand, weight)

Hi Jay

I have the nine circles Tengu gi in the heaviest weight (750g) and the Shogun silver plus gi that I started with, now looking quite frayed in places. The Tengu jacket is comfortable and pretty robust but doesn't have the collar reinforcement that the judo-style Shogun does. It has a shorter apron that is easier to iron if you're the kind that likes the crisp rather than creased look. The trousers (pants) from Tengu are heavier with a larger reinforced area, I find they restrict ukemi a bit once I get sweaty (about 20mins in usually).

My preferred setup is the trousers from Shogun with the jacket from Tengu.
