    I dont know. Black is more slimming but camo will let you hide in the jungle.

    It is a tough choice.

    Well, let's think about this. What are the most important features of both gis?

    Keiko is an old school, Brazilian company. It is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, after all. Tatami and Seymour Yang (the artist who designed the Honey Badger) are both British. @Tez3 has said that BJJ isn't even all that popular in the UK... so, I think the clear advantage here goes to the Camo gi.

    I think the white belt will really pop against that black gi... particularly with the white collar. on camo, you won't even see the white belt. So, this one goes to the Honey Badger gi.

    Grappling at night? Advantage Honey Badger.
    Grappling in the woods? Advantage Keiko

    Which one has an ipod pocket?

    I don't think that one fits. It looks too big.
