Technical Features Summary

  • 550 GSM Gold Weave Cotton Jacket 
  • 12 oz. Twill-Cotton Blend Trousers 
  • Perfect balance in durability and comfort 
  • Excellent strength to weight ratio
  • Highly reinforced stitching in label and high stress areas 
  • Pre-shrunk and Pre-washed Fabric

Material Features

The Hayabusa Goorudo 3 Gold Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi is made up of a premium cut Gold Weave design. The Gold Weave is a nice mixture of the generic Single Weave design and the Double Weave design. Being a hybrid of the two, you get all the pros without too much of the cons.

A single weave is much lighter than the double but much more flimsier and less durable. The double is much stiffer and sturdier than the single, but it’s super heavy and hard to breath in in the summer months! With the Hayabusa Goorudo 3 Gold Weave design, you get the best of both worlds!

With a 550 GSM jacket design, you have yourself a premium Gi that can withstand the test of time! Plus it has a high reinforced stitching in the lapel and throughout the high stress areas in the Gi. Even if your opponent tugs on you heavily with some spider and lapel guard techniques, your golden! Your Gi can take a massive beating!

The pants are structured with a nice 12 oz cotton-twill fabric, providing you with a quality comfort without risking sacrificing performance. It’s a little heavier than some trousers but that’s to be expected with a premium Gi like this one. Another excellent feature is that the BJJ Gi pants is super reinforced in the knees and other high stress areas!

The trousers are also a little snug on the thighs, but with this design you won’t be feeling much of your performance as it conforms and stretches to your leg’s contour.

It has a slick design, with Hayabusa’s “Strength” and “Courage” Kanji embroidered on the chest as well as the “Goorudo” symbol. It’s super eye catching to be sure! The same pattern can be seen embroidered on both sides of the thighs as well.

Both sleeves have the Hayabusa Goorudo patches. The same patch can be seen in the lower right shin of the trousers. Lastly, the back of the Gi Jacket has the signature Hayabusa Eagle insignia patch on the upper back as well as the lower back of the jacket. The lower portion also features the same Japanese characters featured on the front.

The Hayabusa Goorudo 3 Gold Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi come pre-washed and pre-shrunk so it fits you good right off the package. Be careful though, these shrivel up real fast is you put them in the dryer. That’s one of the drawbacks! It’s featured in A0 to A5 in size.

The Goorudo 3 is featured in your traditional BJJ Gi colors: Blue, White, and Black.

CONCLUSION

Hayabusa certainly put in all the stops when it came to designing the Hayabusa Goorudo 3 Gold Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi. This is one of their most premium product lines to date! Just when you think Hayabusa has done everything they could to create the best designs for their customers, you might wonder if they can improve any more. And they hit you with the Goorudo 3! This is a beautifully designed Gi, and easily one of the best premium and competition Gi’s in the market!

PROS

  • Premium cut and tailored fit for maximum flexibility and comfort
  • Reinforced stitching for increased strength and durability
  • Excellent material strength to weight ratio
  • Sharp, tapered,eye-appealing, and professional looking Gi

CONS

  • More expensive than a traditional Gi
  • Pant legs are a little snug on the upper thighs
  • A lot of shrinkage after wash and dry

One slight issue as with most Gi’s is the shrinkage. Keep in mind that even though this might be a premium Gi, it doesn’t prevent shrinkage from the washer and dryer! Make sure to only hang dry this Gi to prevent it shriveling up on you.

Because of the tailored and tapered look, some might feel that the trouser can be a little tight on the thighs – especially if you got those thick thunder thighs! Luckily the cotton fabric does have a little play, so it should adjust pretty good.

Now on to brass tax. When you are getting yourself a premium competition Gi, expect to pay! It just comes with the territory. If you are looking for BJJ Gi’s for under 100, these aren’t the ones for you. But if you have some extra cash to dish out to get you one that lasts, it might be worth the investment.

Overall, the Hayabusa Goorudo 3 is an awesome Gi. It’s beautifully tailored to fit your body, providing you with quality comfort. Plus, with the reinforced fabric, you get one that’ll last you for some time.

It’s got some solid strength to it, while not weighing like a brick like a Double Weave. You can still move pretty nicely – a great strength to weight ratio overall.

If you don’t mind shelling out a bit more for a quality Gi, you’ve got yourself a winner with this one! Plus, how good will that gold look hanging around your neck with this solid looking gi? Pretty damn good I bet!
