I am looking for a new gi and I would like the advice of the fine people of bjj canada. I would like my next gi to be lightweight (dropping a weight category and may need some help making weight), Durable, and Good looking. So if anybody has some ideas let me know.

Hey dude,

Sounds like you are in the same boat as me. I wanted a lighter gi so that it would be easier for me to 'make weight.' I ended up buying the Zero G by Tatami. I will have to give a full review later after I've rolled in it a bit more (and I will comment on its durability). But for now I can tell you that the gi is very light, very comfortable to wear, low in price and it looks good (not dull but not too flashy either). I just finished my first roll in it just now. I immediately felt at home in the gi. Almost like I was rolling in my pajamas. I am already very happy I bought it. Hell, I am considering buy one of the black models (since I went with white and it already has some nice blood stains on it).

Seriously, the only thing I am worried about with this gi is durability. In all other categories it gets a 5/5 from me so far.

Zero G black: http://www.btfightgear.com/cgi-bin/item.cgi?item_id=ttm%2d002
Zero G white: http://www.btfightgear.com/cgi-bin/item.cgi?item_id=ttm%2d001

Added bonus...comes with a carry bag.

Good luck with your gi shopping and let me know what you end up going with.

Cheers

So I ended up not getting a lite gi but I got a keiko gold weave in white with red accents (appropriate for bjj canada). The deal was 2 good to pass. Will post review after using it.
