Since the kids in my schools started wearing this gi I no longer hear them complain about the stiff collar hurting their necks. I've also seen improvements in their technique. The super soft collar is much easier for them to grab and hold which is so important for their early development. The elastic waistband pants mean that I'm not wasting time in class pulling up their pants. Even the belt is super soft making it easier for them tie for themselves.
