By far one of the most common and popular gi for beginners (or anyone wanting a cheap, practice gi), the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is as bare and basic as it gets. There are no patches, no bells and whistles, just a plain, white gi. Even still, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is a durable, serviceable gi, with a pearl weaved jacket and rubberized collar making it comparable to much more expensive gis. While not necessarily a gi you would take to a competition, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is still a great quality gi at an even better price.
There just isn’t much to say about the aesthetics of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform, mostly because they’re basically nonexistent. The gi is entirely free of patches and made from solid white fabric. While this may seem pretty bare, one thing good about it is it allows you to completely customize what goes on your gi.
As a slight bonus to the design of the Premium Blank, it does come with a white belt (again, the gi is primarily meant for beginners in the sport).
The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniformis pretty well in the middle of the road in regards to the weight of the gi. It isn’t an ultralight gi by any means, but at the same time isn’t overly heavy either. For the price, it is definitely a comfortable gi, and many have said it’s more comfortable than gis that are much more expensive.
One rather common complaint about the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is that it tends to run larger than the sizing chart suggests. So much so that reviews of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform suggest ordering a gi that is a size smaller than you otherwise would.
Surprisingly enough, the durability of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is actually quite astounding. The jacket is made from a single piece of material, and reinforcements can be found in all the areas of high stress. Reviews of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform have said to have practiced hard in the gi for many months without ever having a problem. Also, there aren’t any patches to rip off.
The jacket of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is made from a pearl weaved material that is lighter than a double weave but stronger than a single weave, yet again placing the gi as pretty standard in regards to its strength-to-weight ratio. The collar is rubberized, and all the seams are reinforced. One complaint about the jacket that goes back to the gi running large is the fact that the sleeves and skirt are both longer than most would prefer. Still, the jacket of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is quality made and comfortable alike.
Like the jacket, the pants of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform are pretty standard for what you would expect from a quality gi. The material is strong, and the pants are reinforced in the standard areas of high stress. Also like the jacket, however, they tend to run larger than the sizing chart would suggest. Reviews of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform have complained that the pants are too big in the waist and too long.
The pants come with a twill drawstring and have two belt loops. While this is fairly standard, more loops and/or a rope string helps to maintain a better fit.
For a beginner in Brazilian jiu jitsu who isn’t yet dedicated enough to the art to drop $100+ on a gi to practice in, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is an excellent choice. Its quality is so good that some reviews have said that its $69 price tag is only a bonus when compared to strength and comfort of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform. While the fit and lack of any embellishments may be issues, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Uniform is a great, affordable choice for anyone wanting a quality, practice gi.
