Break Point FC (Break Point Fight Company)
About Break Point FC
Break Point FC are a well known as one of the flashiest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi companies. They have tried to be different from everything else on the market and still continue to be a high quality product. The flashy design has definitely made a lot of people fans of their brand (myself included).
They've been making gis since 2007 and have multiple black belts working for them. They take pride in the fact that, in their company, everybody trains. The time Break Point FC spent developing their gi (2 years) really made a difference to them because people were able to enjoy their gi from the first batch.
They've been strong supporters of the Texas Brazilian Jiu Jitsu scene, despite being from California and have done a number of things to support Texas BJJ, including designing a custom BJJ Gi to help fund cleanup and restoration after the BP Oil Spill.
Break Point FC continues to make ‘blinged out' gis such as the RVRSL and the Acai.

I own two BreakPoint gis, a Deluxe white in their older cuts and their Ultra light standard gi in their new gi, both A3s.
Bottom line: For the price there are a lot of better Gi cuts out there, however, if you are around 6’0″-6’2″ and 200-215lbs I bet their new A3 gis would fit you perfectly.
Construction, these are tough gis with good stitching.
Collar, the collar is thick, sturdy yet somehow comfortable
Shoulder room, the gi doesn’t bunch up around the shoulders and allows for a great amount of arm movement.
Material, it’s a tough gi for your opponents to grip, yet is somehow relatively light and comfortable to wear
Gi Cut, their old cut suffered from way too much material around the waist resulting in people liking pregnant while rolling. The sleeves and skirt length were very nice attributes but couldn’t make up for the akward fit around the waist. Unfortunately their new cuts only semi-solved the belly problem (they’re still not as slim as I would like them to be) and they also increased the diameter of their gi sleeves as well as the length of the sleeves and skirt. Something I never remembered someone complaining about in the past. They increased the skirt length around 2 inches and at 5’10 195lbs I couldn’t get the A3 to shrink enough to wear I needed it to be and the A2 was just too small to start with.
The looping system is weaker than a lot of other gi brands and I broke a loop my first day rolling in my Deluxe. They don’t use the stretchy draw strings either, which is what I personally prefer. The deluxe has always felt like the flat string was knotted inside the waistband from the day I purchased it. The Gi material pants (training pants) are great for drilling in however since they are durable and tough for people to grab. Their original cotton pants ripped at the croch during my first day of rolling.This seems to be an issue they solved with their new version of the cotton pants; however, the new pants feel akward in the crotch area due to the way they have a support triangle sewed into the pants.
The design of the gis is really just personal preference but I really liked the way the standard ultra light gi looks, it’s clean and only has small patches midway down the arm and some text on the top of the pants. The Deluxe is a little over the top for me.
Their customer service never was the greatest either. Asking specific questions like “I have a 44″ chest, what gi sizes can accomodate that?” solicited “you’ll just have to buy multiple gis and find out”. Not knowing the chest size of the gis you produce is not the kind of customer service one would expect from a company.
This is great Dan! Do you mind if I add it to the post above to make your comments a bit more permanent?
No problem Brendan.
