Outlaying The Prices Of Sumo Suits. How Much The Different Varieties Cost To Buy.
Firstly, if you are interested in buying sumo suits, either for personal use or as part of a rental business, you must first ensure you research the selection available. There are an awful lot of products out there, and you don"t want to dive head first into buying equipment that you may later regret. Before I discuss further the figures, always make sure you buy from a reputable company, and if you"re not sure, then try and read reviews and gauge which is the best for you.
There are plenty of options when buying sumo suits. In terms of sizes, they range from infant, junior, teen and up to adult. The suits can come with a padded safety mat or not, although customers may wish to request to use one, so it is recommended. The suits usually come with helmets and neck braces inclusive with the price. In terms of cost, you can buy very cheap single sumo suits for under 50, but if you are buying these to rent, then they will not last long and you will end up buying a lot of them in the long run, which may not be cost effective.
A pair of quality sumo suits with a mat will cost 500-700. This will differ slightly for the smaller infant and junior size ranges. Without the mat, a pair of sumo suits will cost 300-500. This may sound expensive, but when you consider the fact that you could then rent these out for between 70 and 100 a day, then you will see that this could be a very profitable venture.
You can also acquire double sumo wrestling suits, where two people can fit into a single sumo character for added fun. These would cost around the 700-900 mark with the mats included and 500-700 without the mats. Obviously you can charge a little extra for these as more people are participating in the games. There are other slight variants on these suits and some can be customised and extras can be obtained, but these are the ball-park figures for purchasing quality, professionally made sumo suits. More importantly, these are the kind of suits that can handle the wear and tear of parties and repeated use. As mentioned before, if you intend to buy for a one-off occasion, then definitely go for the cheaper high street or online stores to get one, as these will be fine for limited use. For business purposes however, the higher priced suits are the only way to go.
