[REVIEW] FUJI SPORTS New Elemental Gi/Kimono

 

The freshest gi of 2017 has just been released and it is ready to keep you cool this summer and as you will see, will keep your weight lower during competition.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Fuji Elemental.

 

(Elemental: related to or embodying the powers of nature.)

The Fuji Elemental gi the most exciting release for Fuji Sports and BJJ competitors around the globe.

It is extremely lightweight and the stitching and embroidery are the epitome of classy. You will notice the absence of any gaudy patches on this gi, which I like because I don’t like to compete feeling as if I look like a NASCAR race car.

Here are the details provided by Fujisports.com:

Details:

el·e·men·tal /ˌeləˈmen(t)l/: related to or embodying the powers of nature.

Become a force of nature in the FUJI Sports Elemental gi. Designed for training and competition, this uniform combines durability and subtle style for a classic look that will give you years of use. 
Features:
– Light pearl weave jacket with reinforced seams
– Rubber collar with a cotton/poly blend for stiffness and shorter drying time

(The first thing you will notice when you try this gi on is the remarkably light weight)

It is a timeless struggle to find the perfect kimono. Choosing a new gi is a long term commitment. The last thing you want to do is spend $100.00 or more on a kimono that is going to tear and begin to fall apart the moment someone grabs a strong grip on your gi. Fuji has been producing the most durable Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gis much longer than the competition…

…and the result is clear.

Notice the difference in weaves in the photo above. One is soft and smooth while the other is deeply perforated and rough. Which would you rather wear daily?

It was a cool Easter egg to find the embroidery on the inside of the sleeves, pants and skirt.

Again, all of the logo embroidery is done with taste and subtlety. The skirt split is reinforced with extra stitching and a slightly different material for a unique look.

Elemental: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The essence of everything in existence. When combined, become the perfected 5th element.

The gi on the above left was my favorite gi to wear prior to the elemental. It is a soft gi and is also very light, but it is not shockingly light. To prove that I wasn’t crazy or was simply hoping that this gi was a lighter gi, I decided to weigh them.

Here are the results! I invite anyone to perform the same test! When you are weighing in for competitions every little bit helps!

 
I made a quick video of my teammate Logan wearing the white one. Check it out below!

I seriously have only one qualm about this gi. I love black gis the best and there is no black option available (at least at the time of the writing of this review). However on the bright side (no pun intended) I have been wearing the white one, and have been quite enjoying the way I look in white now. I almost feel like I can release my Kron Gracie spirit totem when wearing it.

DISCLAIMER: I am sponsored by Fuji Sports. They sent me two of these gis for free to review. That being said, there is no way that I would be dishonest with my White Belt BJJ followers. Fuji was my first pick to work for BECAUSE of their innovative products like this one.
