Information About Judo gi weights
Judogi are sold in many thicknesses, which can be generally grouped together in
the two classes: single-weave and double-weave. Single-weave judogi are thinner
and weigh less (upper jacket textile fabric weight usually 300–550 g/m2). The
thinner judogi are less durable, although some judoka (judo practitioners) may
prefer them for long practices as they are less likely to foster overheating.
Double-weave judogi are thicker and weigh more (fabric weight usually
650–1050 g/m2). They are harder to grab than single-weave gis, which is
considered an advantage in competition. Double-weave gis shrink less and those
of high quality are often sold entirely pre-shrunk, this is important to know
when comparing the fit of the gi. Double-weave gis generally cost considerably
more than single-weave gis of comparable quality.
Pants by themselves should not be classified as single-weave or double-weave
as the name only refers to the weaving style used for the upper section of the
jacket. However, pants sold together with double-weave jackets will also tend to
be heavier than normal due to stronger fabric or large reinforced sections.
Double-weave jackets designed for competition usually display a prominent
seam that runs down the back of the jacket, joining two halves of fabric.
Starting in the late nineties, some manufacturers made this overlapping part
very wide, in effect doubling the fabric thickness for a large section of the
back. This blocked the opponent from gripping there, which in 2005 caused the
International Judo Federation to ban fighting in international competitions
using a judogi with back seam area wider than 3 cm (a little more than one
inch). Wider designs could still be permitted in local competitions depending on
national rules. Single-weave jackets usually have no back seam, or a narrow one
which only joins two fabric sections without interfering with grips.
