    Anyone know of a reputable martial arts supplier either online or in south Florida that sells quality black gi pants?

    The ones I have are a polyester/cotton blend and are restrictive for "cooling" purposes. I guess I am looking for some that are maybe 100 cotton and "breathe" better. Hope that makes sense? I sweat pretty much so anything I can find more comfortable would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try searching Asian World of Martial Arts or Century Martial Arts. Go for a heavy weight gi.

    How much are you willing to spend? There are all sorts of cheaper Pro Force gi pants that will "do the job," available at Century, AWMA, et al., but if you want something nicer that will last you for many years, you may want to check out Shureido USA.

    The ones I have are very cheap and I think that is why no matter how many washes that are still uncomfortable.

    I think I would prefer to spend a little more for better quality.

    A lot of great recommendations, thank you.

    i have a pair of black atama gi pants and they are great. 100 percent cotton, padding in the knees and very durable.
    Paid like 45 or so for them. You can get them online at atama-kimonos.net or .com
