Muaewear Furinkazan BJJ Gi Review

Introduction

Aaaaand I lost all my photos.

So this review has taken longer than most, but I really need to stress something: Muaewear is a brand that I feel really transcends just BJJ Kimonos. This thing is so pretty it deserves to be put behind glass and have people $10 a pop just to take a look. It's gorgeous. The fit, finish, etc is amazing. In my dealings with this kimono there was only one flaw, the seam tape was a bit scratchy. I imagine after more washes it will continue to soften the seam tape up, so not too big of a deal. I'd give the Gi top a middle of the road score in regards to weight. I feel like it's going to hold up quite well over time and be very durable.

The Top

The 560gsm Single Weave top is decorated in multiple areas. The chest is littered with extravagant kanji which means “Wind, Forest, Fire and Mountain”. There's a little patch on the inside of the jacket the breaks down the meaning of this kanji in detail. It's pretty cool.

Obviously the star of the show is the beautifully detailed print on the inside of the jacket. Depicting a Samurai sitting down with cherry blossoms falling around him it really is stunning. Muaewear mentioned I may have issues with the ink bleeding a tiny bit initially, but luckily I didn't have any issues, great success!

The cut of this top is great. It's not as long as the skirt like a lot of Gis which I really liked, I can't stand a long skirt. The sleeves and arm cut felt very tailored. The single weave is relatively difficult to grip and hold onto while still being comfortable.

The sleeves have a minimal opening at the wrists, good for defense, not as good for ezekiels and such, but none the less, skinny is in!

Inside the sleeves are lined with ripstop which is supposed to make the Gi harder to grab. Personally I don't think it matters too much but it does make the material thicker, which I can see causing a bit of difference. It only takes one grain of rice to tip the scale right? (M F'n Mulan reference. BAM)

The collar is nice and thick. Not HCK thick, but thicker than most, which is a nice change of pace. I'm tired of these flimsy collars! Take notes people!

The Trousers

These pants are great. No saggy ass syndrome going on here. They are much slimmer than a lot of gi companies out there and the fit is great.  I didn't have any issues with being limited in regards to mobility.

One of the only complaints I have for the pants is the shortness in the knee reinforcement. Although not a deal breaker, I would have liked to have seen them extend a bit farther down the pant leg.

The belt loop system uses 4 belt loops and a stretchy rope drawstring. The drawstring is a bit smaller in circumference. Hopefully that's because it's of better quality, because I haven't had much luck with these types of drawstrings lately. Regardless, they are my preferred type and I'm glad to see them in use here.

I really like their pants because they aren't baggy and don't limit my movement when rolling. You really can't ask for much else. I can't stand saggy bottom pants or pants with wide open ankles.

I lost virtually all of my graphic designs (ever), pictures, videos etc so I lost the ones I took of the Gi bag and have been unable to find it around the house. But it's a nice little bag. I don't really use Gi bags for carrying Gis, rather just for storing them and for storing other stuff.
