BJJEE Gi Review: JiuJiteiro’s ‘J1’ Gi

BJJEE Gi Review: JiuJiteiro’s ‘J1’ Gi

JiuJiteiro is a Southern California based BJJ lifestyle brand that produces some of the coolest and artiest designs around. They caught my attention a few years back when Andre Galvao and JT Torres were sporting their caps and hoodies with the signature ‘JiuJiteiro’ handwritten logo.  Then they struck big when they came out with a realy inspiring video featuring Magid Hage and Edwin Najmi, skateboarding, surfing and training Jiu-Jitsu together with some really cool soundtrack. That video became very popular in the worldwide BJJ community:

I already had a lot of JJT gear, some hoodies, cap and tshirt so was extra excited when they released their first ever BJJ Gi: the J1.

The J1 comes in 2 colours (white and black) available on the website thejiujiteiro.com. The design follws the JJT style, simple and sharp. It is IBJJF approved.

Sizing and shrinking: The J1 gi came in at almost the right size when I received it. I washed the gi at 40 degrees to not shrink shrink too much. I got a A3 and I’m 1m86/6ft1 and 85/ 185lbs kilos. After the first wash, the gi fit me exactly how I wanted it. It sharnk about 10%. Just right. The cut is not slim fit, it’s something like a regular fit.

Look: This is a elegant and sharp looking gi. It’s a high quality Gi, made from the finest material nowadays. You can see a big difference in quality between this and your basic entrance level Gi. It is not patched up and not too flashy, in my opinion it has been done with a lot of good taste. I like the fact that nobody around me wears the same Gi as I do. It gives it a novelty feel.

Feeling when rolling: The gi is really comfortable and enjoyable to roll with. It will be my go to Gi for competitions.

Conclusion: So in my personal opinion I would give this gi a 9,5/10 rating in terms of satisfaction. I really enjoy rolling in it, the quality is top notch and it looks great too!
It reatails at 164$ at thejiujiteiro.com, which is a good price for such a high quality and elegant Gi.
