Sanabul Women’s Essential Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi Review

When you’re looking for a BJJ Gi, you got to make sure it fits right! If your Gi doesn’t fit you well, you won’t be able to move properly during training and sparring sessions. One of the most common issues female Jiu Jitsu fighters face is getting a Gi that fits them right!

For those that don’t know, Sanabul is one of the best brands in the business. Not just BJJ, but they also cater to other disciplines. Anything from boxing gloves to headgear, shirt, Gis, and much more. They also make all of these gears in very high quality but surprisingly low price, which includes the Sanabul Women’s Essential BJJ Gi.

Material Features

The Sanabul Women’s Essential Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi is a lightweight and affordable option that’s perfect for training for both newbies and experienced athletes alike  

The tapered athletic cut does away with all the excess Gi material. It leaves the Gi feeling a lot less baggy compared to traditional martial arts Gi.   

The removal of the excess Gi material is also perfect for training, especially in the summertime.   

The reinforced ultra lightweight fabric has also been tested to make sure that it is very durable. In fact, it is so durable that the Sanabul Women’s Essential BJJ Gi can be used, not just for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but also in Judo, which is a sport that’s harder on your Gi.   

The fabric used is also “pre-shrunk”, which means the fit will remain roughly just the same as it was the first time you received the package and wore it compared to after washing it in cold water multiple times.   

Lastly, Sanabul added anti-microbial and anti-odor properties to the fabric.   

This is an important factor as it helps keep the fabric and Gi itself more hygienic even after multiple uses.   

Being that BJJ is a contact sport, this will come in handy as it can help protect the wearer from common gym bacterial and fungal infections such as ringworm and staph.

Design Features

It’s no secret that you’ll want to train more and perform better if you look good on your Gi.   

Sanabul took care of that problem for the more self-conscious practitioners by adding subtle design elements and details, along with an athletic cut.   

The sanabul logo is found on the right leg, chest, and back, along with the belt part, with the brand name embroidered on the shoulders, all of which come in contrast stitching colors (green for the White, black for the pink, and purple for the black).   

The Gi is available in 3 different colors (White, Pink, Black) with a comprehensive size guide that takes into consideration your weight and height so that you can find a properly-fitted Gi without having to try it on.

Conclusion

Sanabul prides themselves as one of the few companies who specifically target the lower price points.   

To date, most of their offerings have been affordable and competitively priced.   

The Sanabul Women’s Essential BJJ Gi is no exception.   

For beginners who want to see and feel what a good-fitting Gi is like in person, this is a low-cost investment that will pay dividends in no time and make you want to spend more time training in BJJ.

The Sanabul Women’s Essential Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi is one of the few Gis on the market that’s specifically designed for women.   

This alone is a huge selling point.   

Whereas other Gi forces women to try and estimate their size based on size charts created for men, Sanabul Women Essential Gi has a size chart that lets women choose the right fit and size based on their height and weight.   

Unfortunately, the Sanabul Women’s Essential BJJ Gi is not IBJFF certified. This means that you can’t wear it in competitions.  

Even so, that’s a small compromise to pay for a Gi that fits all women’s sizes well with a subtle but feminine design without forcing women to resort to usually ill-fitting unisex options.
