Flow Kimonos Air Jiu Jitsu Gi Review

Flow has gained a reputation for making durable, lightweight Gi's at an affordable price. Their Gi's have a reputation for creating quality Gi's that will last for years. As an owner of one of their original models, I can attest to the durability of the company’s gis. I’ve worn it nearly every week for six years and it’s still holding up! 

Flow Kimonos Air Jiu Jitsu Gi is labeled as “the competitor’s secret weapon.” It’s a great lightweight gi and we’re going to show you why it is worth your investment.

Material Features Summary

Flow Kimonos Air Jiu Jitsu Gi is made of 350 gsm pearl weave, which is 100% cotton. This material is lightweight and breathable, which makes it great for Summer training during those really hot days.

The Gi top is cotton this also means that it is very comfortable and not going to feel rough against your skin.

The pants are made of a moisture-wickling rip-stop material. This material keeps the pants dry and not weighed down with sweat staying comfortable while you continue rolling.

This Gi’s drawstring is also made of high density foam that goes through 4 extra wide belt loops. This makes it so much easier for your pants to stay on during class!

Design Features Summary

Flow is known for going the simplistic route with their Gis and the Flow Kimonos Air Jiu Jitsu Gi is no different. They went with their usual minimalistic type of design. 

It is a very clean looking Gi - very minimalistic look. The Gi does come in the three traditional BJJ Gi colors: white, blue, and black. While the Gi isn’t flashy, they still look great. It's one of the sharpest looking Gi's we've seen out there.

This Gi top has their signature Flow Kimonos flower stitched on both arms with another small flower on the back. Flow Air is also stitched on the bottom flap, which goes with Flow’s style of not being overly flashy.

Same thing with the pants being a solid color with Flow Air on the front pant leg and their flower on the back.

Flow does keep their design nice and simple for a reason. With a simpler look, it leaves you more room for designing the Gis to your heart's content. Put some of your own patches to make it your own!

Even bigger BJJ guys especially that usually have a hard time finding Gi's that fit have nothing to say but good things about the Flow Kimonos Air Jiu Jitsu Gi.

Perhaps the only complaint that can be said about Flow's Air series might be a lack of crotch support in some pants. It may be just a few pants in this series, but something to keep in mind that the pants may be tight around the crotch area. 

Other than that, there wasn't a whole lot of negatives about the Gi. Some did complain that it did feel a little baggy as it doesn't have the tapered feel. 

Overall, Flow Kimonos Air Jiu Jitsu Gi is a great investment to make for your Jiu Jitsu training. It's soft, it's comfortable, and it's super durable. Flow makes a great product and at $130 this Gi is a steal! You will get years of training out of this Gi - it's sure to stand the test of time!
