Hayabusa has manufactured a ton of high quality combat sports gear its no surprising that it is behind one of the best bjj gi in the market today.

The jacket and pants on the bjj gi feature a reinforced double-ply fabric that can handle the high stress of rolling. The Gi is very breathable for the wearer and also features a 14oz canvas cotton that provides more durability. The only problem that would found with this gi is finding the right size pants.
