BJJ gi review: Globetrotters Travel Gi

BJJ Globetrotters Travel Gi gets reviewed. Wow!

So exactly how thin is a completely ripstop travel gi from the BJJ Globetrotters, spearheaded by captain Blond-fro Christian Graugart, well thin enough to comfortably wear under my work suit.  

It really is that thin and comfortable, I wore it under my work suit to demonstrate.

Gi measurements, out of the bag:

Weight: 1.1 kg!!!

Outside leg 39.5" 100cm
Inside leg 29.5" 75cm
Cuff 9.5" 24cm
Waist 21.5" 55cm

Span 65" 165cm
Height 32" 82cm
Width 23" 59cm
Cuff 6.75" 17cm

Fantastically light, as you'd expect from a ripstop gi yet very comfortable too. If you've ever owned a ripstop gi and hated the way it can cling to you like the cheap karate gis many of us wore when we first started. This gi, however, remains comfortable throughout the session. I took this gi with me to visit a BJJ academy in Brighton down in the south of England and I was very happy with how light my bag was and with it's performance. If the IBJJF ever allow ripstop gis, this is definitely the one I'd take with me. 

PS. My gi came without the large patch

Stylistically, I really likes the minimalist flavour that Christian and his team has gone with. Not that I would want to add to the weight with patches (seriously, what's the point?), but if I wanted to I could. The only stylings were the embroidered brand logos placed tastefully around the shoulders and pant legs.
