Question Cheap gi pants

I have recently gotten back into practicing and I find myself without bottoms. I am trying to hold off on buying a gi until December, since dues are a new expense I am working on absorbing Does anyone know where I can get a pair of discouted reliable unbleached gi bottoms? I already have the top and a belt...Thanks!

HCK sells pants separately. From experience I can tell you they will be very durable.

Alternatively for a few dollars more, you can get a standard unbleached gi.

HCK is the only gi I wear. After 5 years, they are still just like new.

I've also heard good things about Ouano, which also sells pants separately.

Regards,

Paul

Thank you very much, they do look like nice gi's. Alternately how do they compare to the double stiched gi's? I was told we can get those for 75 dollars, but if you say that these last 5 years there is no reason to go anywhere else, thanks!

Hi Rich, Mark,

If both of you want to use the "Send E-mail" link at the bottom of the form to send me e-mail, I'll hook you both up with each other's e-mail addresses.

Hey Rich,

If you can't get through to Mark you could try sending it to me and I'll forward it to him (I know him in case you're wondering)

Hopefully Mark you've got mail. Thanks for the help, Jun. I appreciate the offer Bronson, but we'd probably have the same problem. Thank you though.
