93 brand charlie lightweight bjj gi 1

93 Brand “Charlie” Lightweight Gi First Impression

by Katrina

93 Brand is a United States based company and a fairly new brand to the BJJ gi market. It is headed by the same guy who runs BJJHQ.com (An AWESOME site if you haven’t discovered it already) and the Martial Arts Supply (MAS) website.  They offer creative designs and color schemes as can be seen in their rashguards and gi designs (think, “The Goose”). I really like 93 Brand’s rashguards and own three of their designs. In fact, in my before picture for this first impression, I am wearing 93 Brand’s “Choking Hazard” rashguard designed by renowned BJJ artist, Meerkatsu.

vhts galaxy jiu jitsu gi review 6

VHTS Galaxy Guest Gi Review by Mario Barrios

Summary:

An amazing gi loaded with premium features normally reserved for higher end priced gis. As always VHTS offer great quality, great fit (for my body type at least), good price and an even greater customer service to boot. You can really tell the brand is growing when you see this latest gi offering and how they’ve taken some risks that have definitely paid off. I’ve had 10 gis from different brands and by far my favorite is the VHTS Galaxy.

All jokes aside,  I can’t thank you enough for the number of emails, tweets, and Facebook messages about where we’ve been lately!

Many of you have noticed a serious lack of updates, from a lack of reviews, to a total dropoff in our podcast!

In short, we were hacked.

strike fightwear hg13 bjj gi review front 2

Summary

I absolutely love what Strike Fightwear does with their pricing.  Their gis could easily fetch top notch prices but they choose to keep things affordable despite offering beautiful gis that are of great quality.

The HG13 continues this trend.

Introduction

The HG13 is a not-so-subtle homage to Helio Gracie.  2013 (yeah, I’m that late in writing this review – published June 2014) marks the 100th anniversary of his birth.

I’ve worn Strike Fightwear gis in the past, specifically the Limited Edition ‘Hoth’ collaboration gi we did with them and really liked their design sense and the fit/quality of the gi.  I was really hoping for the same things that we had on the Hoth in terms of cut/quality.

tatami fightwear zero g v4 gi review pant cuffSummary

The Zero G range was originally a lightweight alternative to Tatami Fightwear’s popular Estilo gis.  It was marketed as more of a lightweight competition BJJ gi than the Estilo, but with the advent of the Sub Zero gi (350gsm, 8oz pants) from Tatami, the Zero G (475gsm jacket, 10oz pants) now seems a bit closer to the Estilo (550gsm jacket, 12oz pants).

I just wanted to personally thank everybody who has helped us raise money so far in 2014 to benefit Tap Cancer Out.   All funds have been raised through the sale of gently used gis in the GiReviews.Net store and, to date, we’ve raised $650!

If you want to continue to support our efforts, please check out the gently used gis we have for sale in the store and also consider donating directly to Tap Cancer Out!

I will continue to update everybody month to month as donations come in and are sent directly to TCO.  Thanks again for all of your support!

 

Kazushi Sakuraba x Scramble ‘Water’ Rashguard

As I posted before, I’m really psyched about this The Kazushi Sakuraba rashguard from Scramble.  I hear that it should drop at the beginning of March but while it may not give +10 to keebars, it will certainly allow me to get know nods of approval from serious MMA fans. Order it now here (USA) and here (UK/abroad)!!!!

Additionally, I love the type and design on the new Eddie Bravo Metamoris t-shirt.  I’m a HUGE fan of Royler as well but I’ll definitely be rocking this for Metamoris! You can grab one here (USA) and here (UK/abroad).

Who are you rooting for at Metamoris 3? Bravo or Gracie???

Let me know in the comments below!

macaco branco gi review frontSummary

The Macaco Branco (“White Monkey” in Portuguese) white bjj gi is a solid training gi that was enjoyable to wear throughout the review.  A massive price point is distracting from what is otherwise a very solid mid-range BJJ gi.  Although I almost ruined it by washing it with a blue gi, the gi was able to be saved and is still going strong.

VHTS BJJ Gi Review

by Brendan

vhts gi review tag 1

Guest gi review by Mario Barrios

VHTS Summary

A great gi overall, great price and excellent customer service. It’s a small brand (still) with great potential for growth, if it grows with all the perks, quirkiness, quality and customer service it has today I can definitely see it becoming way mainstream and competing with the big dogs.
