The holiday season is past us at this point and everyone has been wearing their latest gear that they got for Christmas. We were sent over a Gi from Elite Sports and were happy to review the product. We have been training in the Gi for about a week now and got to spend some time rolling around in it before writing this up.
Elite Sports Gear Review: Camo Gray Gi
We recently connected with the team over at Elite Sports and reached out to review some of their products. In this article, we will be discussing their newest style of Gi, the gray camo Adult BJJ Gi valued at $100. Is the Gi worth its price, how does it feel in training, and its look will all be discussed.
Who is Elite Sports?
Elite Sports is one of the biggest brands in the Brazilian Jiu-JItsu community. They offer rash guards, Gi’s, equipment, and other gear for combat sports athletes.
Elite Sports Jiu-Jitsu Gi
First things first, in the look department for the gray camo adult Gi. The Gi itself looks very nice and does meet our criteria as a fashionable article of clothing to compete in.
The gray camo does not only look good but has gotten us many compliments on the attire while we were training in it this last week. This time of year is when people love to show off all the new things they received for Christmas and it felt good knowing that people were giving nice compliments on the gear we have gotten.
Elite Sports did a great job with this style of Gi.
Feel & Fit
The Gi’s we have trained in the past have gotten a little stiff on us but we really did like the feel and fit of the Gi we got from Elite Sports.
We normally where an A1L. Finding something that fits our body is always a challenge. Elite sports did not have that specific size so we went with the A2 and it fits our body perfectly. We were a bit nervous about sending in the order for this reason but were happy to find out the sizing chart matched what would exactly fit us.
The gi is IBJJF approved and is stated to be suitable for all martial arts tournaments. The gi itself is pre-shrunk, lightweight, and feels great to move around in. The Elite sports BJJ Gi is made from a 400gsm pearl weave fabric and the pants have a drawstring for tightening.
It is always smart to wash any Gi before breaking it in to loosen it up a bit and this is not different. Be sure to hand dry this gi or it may end up shrinking on you!
Overall Opinion of Elite Sports Gray Camo Gi
For the $100 price tag of the Elite Sports Gray Camo BJJ Gi, we think it is worth it. Personally, we love the look of the camo and it truly does feel good to roll around in. The looks of the Gi are unique and we have not seen anyone at our gym wearing the same Gi so we do stand out when training which is always a plus.
We have a couple of Gi’s now and are happy to have picked this one up. The gray camo looks cool online but even better in person!
