Technical Features Summary

Material Features 

The Fuji All Around Gi is made up of FUJI’s premium cotton blend so you get a nice comfortable feel to it. The Gi and pants are both made up of 100% cotton fabric. As a cotton drill uniform, its is heavily reinforced with twill weave, making it very strong, medium dense to heavy weight fabric.

Although the Gi is made of a Single Weave fabric design, it doesn’t feel like your typical Single Weave. Usually Single Weave designs are very lightweight and almost flimsy. Fuji’s design is actually a little bit heavier and much more durable than most Single Weaves out there. The uniform has a nice mid-weight feel to it, roughly weighing in at around 3 lbs.

The Fuji All Around Gi has very well-designed collar structure, with a nice thick rubberized feel to it. The uniform set is multi-layered and reinforced in high stress areas. The Gi is equipped with armpits and side vent reinforcements with a nice cotton lining.

The Gi Jacket has triple stitched seams inside of the jacket and sleeve cuffs. The pants is equipped with side vent and crotch, ankle, and knee reinforcement for additional durability and strength.

Basically, the All Around Gi can take a beating!

Design Features 

The Fuji All Around Gi is a great design overall. The design is clean and simple, without too much design embroideries.

Fuji’s signature logo is embroidered up on the upper left arm and the upper back of the jacket, just below the neckline. A small woven patch stitching is also featured in the bottom of the lapel. The same stitching can be seen on the upper left thigh of the trousers.

The All Around BJJ Gi has a simple and traditional look. Right off the bat, you could tell that Fuji’s design has a “Judo Gi feel” to it, as it’s heavily influenced by the sport. However the Gi was constructed with BJJ in mind. The Gi isn’t very baggy nor is it too thick.

All Around BJJ Gi Colors

The Fuji All Around Gi has a nice tapered feel to it, nicely conforming to the practitioner’s body contour.

One downside though is that the uniform can run a little bit small so you might have to adjust and get a size bigger. Take a close look at their sizing chart as they might be a little bit different than others in the market.

Fuji-Size-Chart

Most BJJ trousers have a Ripstop design while Fuji kept theirs 100% cotton making it much more comfortable and less “scratchy” during your rolls. The trousers are equipped with flat belt drawstrings which makes it great for tying compared to the rope variation. The downside to pants though is that it probably needs a few more belt loops. Users report them coming loose! You might just have to tie a double knot to keep them from loosening.

The Fuji All Around Gi is 100% IBJJF Qualified. It comes in White, Blue, Navy, and Black. It's also featured in Pink for female competitors.

CONCLUSION

Overall, the Fuji All Around Gi is an excellent BJJ Gi for training. There’s a reason why this Gi is one of the most sought out uniforms in the market. They’re built to last!

PROS

  • Medium weight, easy to move around with – not too light or heavy
  • 100% Cotton Fabric for added comfort
  • Very minimal shrinkage after wash
  • Reinforced stitching, extremely durable, and built to last

CONS

  • Fabric Breathability isn't too great
  • Can get hot during summer training months
  • Sizing can be off, can run a bit small
  • Only two belt loops to tie pants drawstring

Probably one of the biggest drawbacks for the Gi is the sizing issue. The uniform is reported to come in a little smaller than other Gi’s. User’s also reported that there are only a few belt loops that the trousers are equipped with. This might cause them to come loose if you don’t tighten it properly.

The Fuji All Around Gi is thick – much thicker than your typical Single Weave Gi. Now this does have a minor drawback. It can get hot during your summer rolling sessions! However, there is an upside to this as well. The thick fabric choice that Fuji has made constructing the Gi had the strength and durability in mind. These things are built like champs! The reinforced fabric makes sure you can take a punishment during your tough rolling sessions. These things are sure to last the test of time!
