While I’d seen the Habrok name around the no-gi scene, I wasn’t aware that they made gis until they gave me the opportunity to try out their Tatica Leve model. I was eager to see how their gis measured up against other competitors in the market.Find your favorite women’s gi at MMA Warehouse!
This gi keeps it simple, keeping the frills to a minimum and sticking with basic pink details (though there’s also an option for purple). Currently, this gi only comes in white, and while it looks great, I’d love to see a blue and black option in the future. The material is a little stiff, and the pants, in particular, feel almost paper-y, but I’m assuming this will change with wear. I didn’t get the impression that they would be too easy to rip despite the gi’s super lightweight feel. I was happy to see a silky “rashguard” layer around the inside shoulder area, which would definitely make things more comfortable for athletes who prefer to wear tank tops or sports bras underneath their gis.Compare prices on lightweight gis at MMA Warehouse
I really, really like how this gi fits me. It doesn’t feel bulky at all, but it also doesn’t make me feel restricted. The vain side of me was also pleased with how it looks from the side. I have a large bust, so I’ve pretty much accepted that most gis are going to make me look heavier than I am, but this one surprised me with a sleeker fit that almost looked custom-tailored to my body type. I can’t say for sure if other women might have the same experience, but I’m very happy with it.
Because I hadn’t seen any fellow female BJJ practitioners wearing Habrok gis, I was a little worried that the pants would fit more like they were designed for men. I was pleasantly surprised to find that like the jacket, the pants were definitely designed with the female form in mind. They come up to the perfect spot on my waist, and I don’t feel like I’ll have to worry about accidentally mooning my teammates.
I’ll be giving this gi a test run over the next few months to see how it holds up in everyday training.
