This is the second gi that I’ve had from Submit One Clothing. (you can see our first review here) They’re a smaller brand based out of Las Vegas and are releasing smaller batches but get attention mainly from the guys in Vegas. Sim Go was a supporter of theirs for a while and I believe still is. With a price of $88 I’m surprised that they haven’t gotten more attention with the quality that they’re putting out.
After opening the box and pulling the gi out of the clear package I was impressed. White material with red contrast all around.
Super sharp looking gi and I couldn’t wait to wash it and go train. I mean I’ve seen white gi’s with red contrast stitching before and I was really wowed by it.
After a thorough inspection and picture taking I threw it in the wash and waited…
- 450 GSM Pearl Weave
- White with Red Contrast Stitching and Logos
- One piece, no back seam
- EVA Foam Collar
Nice and straight stitching on the collar
Pretty clean design
One logo on the back
The only negative thing on the collar stitching was right here. Inside of the collar. Its a medium thickness for a collar.
Triple stitched cuff with a medium thickness layer of cotton strip on the inside
quadruple stitched skirt with a ripstop outer exterior lining
As you can see from the pictures the design of the gi is super eye catching. The red stitching and logos really stand out and makes people ask who makes that gi.
The jacket itself is made very well and is lightweight. Great for comp use or daily training. I’ve had another gi from them for a while now and it’s holding up great so I have no doubt that this one will do the same.
- 10 oz Cotton
- White with Red contrast stitching
- 6 belt loops
- Stretchy rope drawstring
- Pearl weave gusset
6 loop system
Short knee pads, barely cover the knee.
Quadruple stitched cuffs with a medium thickness cotton strip on the inside
Pearl weave gusset
Triple stitched seams
Solid pants, very lightweight and breathable. Craftsmanship on stitching is great, nothing caught my eye in terms of sub par quality. The red stitching really pops against the white material and is quite the eye catcher.
How does it fit
As you can see from the pictures, it’s a great fit for competition use. This is after two weeks of use and many washes. It shrank up quite nice.
The gi is lightweight and doesn’t stretch out a ton while rolling hard. The pants do stretch a little bit but not a terrible amount.
The grip breaking of this gi is neutral. It’s not hard but it’s not easy at the same time if you get what I’m saying. The more you sweat and roll the harder it becomes to break in my opinion.
Movement is free and clear and there isn’t hardly any restriction. The lapel is a good length and comes out easy if you choose to remove it to choke your opponent.
Submit One Kimonos sells this gi for $88 before shipping.
That is an unbelievable price to pay for a kimono of this quality. Seriously, that is all you can say. A lot of the times the saying goes “you get what you pay for”. Well this is a cheap price but you’re getting an amazing product.
Why is it so cheap? The owner Alden said that he wanted competitors on a budget to be able to afford quality product without having to give out an arm and a leg. He has completed that mission and you would honestly be a fool to not buy a gi like this for such a low price.
This is the second gi I have had from them and the first one did not disappoint me in any way. I am very confident that this one will be the same and will give me plenty of use!!!!
