We published this post back in 2012 and, five years later, we’re updating it to become more relevant with the times.
Many gi companies have come and gone (in fact, some gis that have been featured and reviewed here may no longer be around) while some have stayed along for the ride. Keeping up with who are still around, who have closed shop and who are starting out every single day is still huge work and, surprisingly, still impossible for us to keep up.Want the latest BJJ gi?

It seems like everybody knows a guy who went to Pakistan to see the gi factories and he said…
Well, let’s cut out all the speculation.
Just in case you were ever wondering how a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gi is made or what the inside of a Gi “factory” in Pakistan looks like, you’ll enjoy the photos below. My overall estimation is that very good craftsmanship can be done with very limited resources. Thanks to Nick from OSS! Fightwear for letting us have this glimpse into the whole process.Lean and lanky? Here are the best BJJ gis for you!
This question pops up from time to time for various reasons.
Some people replace their bjj belt, some instructors are looking for bjj belts to buy for their students, and some students buy their own bjj belts.
While it isn’t a gi review necessarily, we’ll start by looking at what other people have to say about their bjj belt!Compare prices on your favorite BJJ belt brands!
Hayabusa is actually a Japanese word for the Peregrine Falcon. This falcon is a predator best known for its power, speed and strength — the very same attributes that are possessed by the combat athletes that make use of their products.
Hayabusa is mostly known for their MMA clothing, but they also make a pretty nice BJJ gi. Their gis are made entirely of ripstop fabric, but their most unique feature is that they have a stretch inseam similar to most mma shorts. This very unique feature sets Hayabusa apart from other brands.
They also dabble in contrast stitching, but their gis tend to be very pricey.Find your own Hayabusa gi at MMA Warehouse!
Venum is a pretty cool Brazilian fight company. They are based in Brazil and have offices in New York. They sponsor fighters such as Frankie Edgar, Lyoto Machida, and Sean Sherk.
They have a REALLY nice website and are very active on their Twitter account, should you ever need to get ahold of them.
Well friends, it’s about that time of the year again. Time for some good old summer BJJ training.
But I’ll level with you. I’m about 6’1″ and about 200lbs. (on a good day).
I sweat. A lot. And there isn’t anything more uncomfortable than training in a thick heavy gi during the summer.
With that in mind, we wanted to highlight a few of the best lightweight / summer gis that are out right now.Find your favorite lightweight gi at MMA Warehouse!
In 1989, Keiko Raca Kimonos was a sportswear manufacturing company. For the next 16 years, Keiko Raca made items for Mizuno and other brands. In 1995, they started out on their own and created the brand we know today. Keiko Raca offers slimmer fitting gis than other companies and sponsors some of the top names in BJJ (many from the Alliance team) such as Cobrinha, Gabby Garcia, Tarsis Humphreys and Sergio Moraes. Even though they aren’t heavily marketed in the United States, they continue to be a standard, popular gi in many other parts of the world. Definitely a solid gi and kimono company.
TUFROL is a new company that has some nice designs and is working on developing their own brand of Gis. Like many companies, TUFROL is out of California.

The Albino & Preto brand is currently being headed up by Bear from Shoyoroll. Their first gi, given the picture below, appears to be a white gi (they’ve also added a black gi) with a green contrast similar to the original Lucky gis and the Subculture Wasabi.
Many have speculated that Albino & Preto will be producing gis in a similar method to SYR, but nothing has been confirmed. As more information comes out, this page will be updated!Click here to compare prices on BJJ gis available at MMA Warehouse
I know that Vulkan is extremely well known, and probably does not need an additional evaluation, however i wanted give my take anyways.
My school is really 90% Vulkan equipment, so I was already pretty sure what to expect so far as appearance, but nobody has the blue Vulkan Ultra Light. Very razor-sharp! This really is only my second uniform, along with my first as being a Gameness Pearl. The very first thing I figured was “holy crap, this thing is soft!” I don’t know if I’m washing my Gameness wrong or something like that, however that thing is actually beyond rigid.Get your very own Vulkan Ultra Light gi at Amazon!
