Bought a Reevo Aerolight and while I love how light it is, it's uncomfortable and stiff. I am assuming that the $139.99 price point speaks for itself. I live in Canada and have been eyeing an OriginMaine Gi but the shipping is ridiculous right now. I have a Hayabusa that is great, its just too big, especially the pants. Can anyone suggest a high quality Gi? Thanks.

I like Inverted Gear. Their tall A3 is perfect for me and they are great quality.

Venom I've found over the years fits me best.  Everybody is different though,  my friend only wears tatami but I can't the pants dont fit me right.  Atama is always quality as well

I have 4 Origens. All great Gis. Have all lasted for years, were the first ones to come out.

All made in Pakistan, baby.

Love my Origin. See if there is a Facebook group where you can trade, buy used, something.

Fuji and 93Brand. They both have Gi's for around $100. I stopped buying expensive Gi's when I realized I couldn't tell much difference between any of them.

I got a Fuji Elemental gi and I love it (A3).  Choosing it over all my other gis now.

Hyperfly makes some quality shit.  You may have to hunt a little for one that isn’t branded up.

I have 3 and they all fit like a taoilored suit.

Inverted Gear also makes a comfortable, quality gi.

Tatami’s are nice also but the sizing is inconsistent.

I have an HCK that is bulletproof but they don’t exist any more.

I tell everybody, check out 93 brand. Best bang for the buck and they have a lot of the tailored sizes.... longs, talls, and that stuff.

I think AP has some of the nicest gis out there.  I finally got my hands on one and didnt like the cut at all.  The skirt is too long like the older school cuts.  

Plus they have an annoying batch release model and are overpriced.  So many better options IMO
