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

I'm not very familiar with the company because I order through my dojo, but mine is an "HSU Kodokan" gi. They seem to hold up pretty well. Not sure about the weight, but it seems a bit on the heavier side from what I've seen. I'd reckon I got a solid 5 years worth of use out of it (I wore it for almost 15 years but the last decade of that was with very sporadic training). I just replaced it last year when it ripped around the floating ribs area. It took a lot of washings.
