Hi everyone! I’m really excited to be writing my first gi review! I have been in jiujitsu for over 15 years and have worn my fair share of gis. Some I wore once and never again. Others I wore until they were tattered threads. Recently I had the pleasure of training in a new gi by Elite Sports.
The gi I have been wearing is the Elite Sports Ultra Lightweight Navy gi, A2. The gi is 100% cotton, 400 gm Pearl weave and preshrunk! Love that! The gi pants are made from ripstop material and have a rope draw string.
The gi is very sharp looking with a very cool looking emblem design of an industrial type eagle. The gi was very comfortable. It had an excellent fit…just loose enough to allow for good movement. I honestly felt like I had been wearing the gi for months and it was already broken in.
There are a couple more cool things about the Elite sports gi you should know about. The fabric has anti- odor and antimicrobial treatment so that you don’t have to worry about bacterial buildup or fungal infections. There is also a 6 month manufacturer warranty should any rips from normal use.
Lastly and this is honestly what I love the most…..the price. For a gi of this quality I’m used to seeing price ranges in the $180s. The price for the Elite Sports Ultra Light gi is an unbelievable $79.99. Yes…$80 for a gi this good?? You have to buy two!
