Gi Review Preview: War Tribe Hydrogen Ultralight Women’s Gi

War Tribe Ultralight


War Tribe gis have gotten positive reviews from our other female writers here at, so I’m pumped to finally be able to try one out myself. Their newest release, the Hydrogen Ultralight, is giving me a pretty promising first impression.

The Look


War Tribe Hydrogen Ultralight Pants

This gi impressed me from the moment I took it out of the box. Stylistically, it stands out from the pack with details that are both pink and yellow. It’s a nice feminine touch without being distracting. But while the appearance caught my eye, the feel is what really got me. This gi is super soft, to the point where I feel like I wouldn’t be totally uncomfortable lounging around the house in it.

The Fit



I normally wear a size F2 in gis, but this one is a little large on me, particularly in the jacket. It’s worth noting that my teammates like to tease me for having “T-Rex arms”, but even so, I’d probably recommend going down a size if you’re on the shorter side like me and you don’t want to have to shrink it. Still, the Hydrogen Ultralight lives up to its name; it’s super lightweight, and I feel like it would be great for summer training or competition.


I was really pleased with the fit of the pants. War Tribe has a lot of experience with making women’s gis, and it shows; they didn’t make the mistake that many other companies make of not providing enough material to compensate for wider hips. I felt adequately covered from front to back, and the waistband didn’t cut into me.


I’ll be spending the next few months seeing if this gi performs as well as it looks and feels, so keep an eye out for a complete review in the future. In the meantime, check it out along with War Tribe’s other female gis to see if there are any you’d like to rock on the mats.
