I’ve never liked short sleeve rashguards. I always preferred long sleeve versions because I felt that it gave me better control. Eventually I started to notice that certain training partners were getting really good at wrist control and I had a really hard time breaking it because of the sleeves (and because I may, or may not, suck at grip fighting). So I started wearing t-shirts instead. Until I tried the Break Point short sleeve rashguard.
Break Point Rashguard Review
I find myself opting for my Break point rashguard not only because it has short sleeves, but because it doesn’t move in training, looks fantastic, and has held up incredibly during training. Break point makes rashguards in almost every color, but mine is in black (why would you want any other color?).
This Break Point rashguard looks amazing. The sublimation is some of the best that I have ever seen. The depth of colors makes it look sharp, almost like armor.
The logos of Break Point give it just enough bling to keep me happy (and you know I love bling!) Both sleeves have the logo on them and Break point is proudly displayed across the chest.
In addition, Break Point also has their name on the collar. I think that is probably my favorite feature of the gi. Who sublimates the collar? Break Point does.
I go from being svelte and awesome to a fat sack of crap throughout the year and the Break Point rashguard felt great no matter what shape I was in. I wore it as often as I could for nogi, and almost always under my gi.
I think that when you train, a nice rashguard under the gi helps you stay classy (San Diego) on the mats. This rashguard felt perfect under my gi. Any scratchy seam taping or whatnot ceased to bother me and my sweat wasn’t going everywhere (which it does when you’re over 6 feet and 200lbs.)
I feel like my Break Point rashguard is going to last quite a long time, so overall a great purchase. With the quality of the gi and the sublimation process being so high, I look forward to Break Point doing more with the graphics on their rashguards.
