I sell a lot of fightgear. my favorite shorts are the Sprawl and NOGI shorts. Everybody seems to have there own opinion on GIs. There are a lot of brands out there including Gameness, Atama, HCK, SirSirius, Reicko, BadBoy. Really depends on the comfort and style you are looking for. Some folks prefer single weave, double weave, and Gold Weave. As far as gloves go I really like the Windy and Combat sports gloves.
