just a little background I've been training BJJ for just under 2 years and earned my blue belt about 6 months ago.

When I first started I brought a cheapish BJJ Gi which is getting a little worn out now, I've been looking at getting a new one but all the prices are crazy expensive. I've noticed that in general Judo Gis are far cheaper and was wondering if anyone who rolls has used a Judo Gi before and if Athens heavier feel hinders in any way?

A guy at my gym uses a judo gi. It is definitely baggier and I really like working my open guard against him, because there is so much there to work with.

I don't do much gi work anymore, but my Howard Combat Kimono has lasted me a couple of years. It was something like $80+ shipping. It's a little on the thick side, but it is super durable and reasonably priced. It felt a little too stiff at first, but once you break it in it's real nice.

Fuji is trash son.

Tatami is always legit. Koral are good as well.

If you want a more budget gi try inverted gear or modern flow.
