93 Brand "Charlie" Lightweight BJJ Gi
93 Brand is turning out hit after hit. The Charlie is the latest addition to their unique Gi line, blending a clever graphic theme with state-of-the-art lightweight fabrics.
A distinct and unique Pearl Weave is used throughout the jacket, the structure of which breaks away from your typical "lightweight" Pearl Weave... Each lace of the weave is noticeably smaller and more tightly woven, which lends greater integrity to the jacket's overall strength while using less fabric volume. This breakthrough style of Pearl Weave allows the fabric to weigh significantly less without compromising any sturdiness. The jacket is so light and breathable that honestly you hardly feel it against your skin.
While many competition style Gis will use a super thin ripstop around the collar that will wear and fray sooner than the rest of the Gi, 93 Brand has elected to use a thick 17 oz ripstop (over double the normal thickness). Let's face it, you've got people grabbing and yanking on your collar nonstop, it needs to be well equipped for that constant abuse. The 17 oz. ripstop has a specially textured rugged surface that, when combined with the wider EVA foam collar, makes it tougher for your opponent to get comfortable, deep grips.
Smooth 8 oz. cotton pants have generous knee reinforcements that, in typical 93 fashion, extend to the bottom hem for complete knee coverage regardless of your position. Flexible lycra is used for the crotch gusset, improving leg flexibility and relieving pressure on those high-stress inner seams.
The black finish is accented with several shades of brown throughout selected stitching areas, all side vents, drawstring loops, and crystal clear embroideries. The Charlie gets our vote for best Gi name and theme of 2013. From the Wonka font down to the 93 Brand logo stamped on the inner label's chocolate bar, it's RollMore approved.
