STAFF PICKS by Jacob - Director of E-Commerce & Head Buyer
The Original X Gi was sent to me as a sample by Manto in 2013, I loved the white/purple colour-way and it became one of many factors that spurred me on to give up kickboxing and try Jiu Jitsu which i'd been contemplating on doing for some time. Many years later it still lies at the top of my list of favourite Gi's to roll in all year round.
The latest incarnation, the X3, offers the same great qualities as it's predecessors - it feels lightweight, strong (450gsm and i've not had one tear yet!) and in my opinion it is one of the best fitting Gi's on the market. We all love the small details on our BJJ Gi's and this one features a motto i'd adhere to if I could; "Jiu Jitsu All Day, Every Day."
What was your first ever BJJ Gi?
