Flow Kimonos Pro Series BJJ Gi – What do people have to say.

I was browsing on Amazon and came across the brand ‘Flow Kimonos“. I was quite curious as I have never worn one or even noticed other grapplers wearing them but they seem to have amazing reviews. They look quite cool and according their website, they ‘beat the heat’. Since I’m such a sweaty bastard, that appeals to me. I took a look through the reviews to see what people like about them. I’m a big one for seeing what other people say first, as I’ve been burned in the past by bad quality stuff.

The description of the gi that they have published is:

480gsm pearl weave top
8oz ripstop cotton pants
100% Preshrunk fabric (<2% shrinkage)
Ripstop shoulder panel
Printed stretch drawstring

86% of the people who’ve bought them from Amazon say they fit perfectly. That’s not 100% but it’s not too bad for buying it online.

They published this size chart , which should help solve the problem.

These gi’s seem to be mid price to high price Gi’s.

I had a look at the user reviews, which were pretty much all positive to see what people had to say after they had worn the gi’s. Some of the comments were that they wear well and show no wear after two weeks. ( I don’t know if that’s really long enough but I guess if there was a problem, it would show that soon if you roll a lot. another person has worn is for a year with no problems. One BJJ player noted how many compliments he’d received about the way it looks. There were some comments about how comfortable it is and how it’s suitable for summer as it’s light.

The drawstring on the pants was mentioned as being really good. It’s a small thing but I find that the design shown on the gi of the drawstring appeals to me as there’s nothing worse than when the drawstring creeps in to the pants on some gi’s and you battle to get it out.

All in all, what I took away from reading the reviews on these gi’s is that you have to read the size chart carefully and they do shrink slightly. The big take away for me is that everyone who’s bought a Flow Kimonos BJJ Gi seems to be extremely happy with the great quality, durability and light weight. Since I live in a sunny climate and tend to rip gi’s, this seems like it could be a good option for my next BJJ gi. What do you think? Have you worn a flow Kimono’s gi. I’d value your opinion in the comments.
