There is no better value or competition gi in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Our Comp DNA Atleta (Athlete) is a brand new take on an old school weave. Featuring American Smart Pearl© Gen 3.

The Comp DNA Atleta comes standard with Origin's classic style pants. But don't let the word "classic" fool you. These pants are made with our Atomic Twill GEN 2 performance textile. Abrasion resistant, inside-out moisture wicking, soil release, and of course there is nothing like it on the market. If you want to upgrade your Comp DNA Atleta to Origin Pro Pants, it's only $20 more. For athletes who demand more during competition, choose the Comp DNA Atleta. 100% designed, woven and manufactured in the USA.

We developed a proprietary, pre-shrunk PolySynth© yarn, engineered to be 10x stronger than our existing yarn, and 100x stronger than the industry standard. When twisted, the hexagonal structure of the staple fibers interlock with one another, allowing moisture to to pass between the weave, but not get absorbed into the yarn itself. This would be the foundation for American Smart Pearl© GEN 3.

When the first fabric came off the loom, it was almost too good to be true. We abused it, washed it, dried it, and like Damascus steel, the fabric got better with time. We could say it was engineered, but that’s too technical, we could say it was forged, but that’s too literal. It’s the union of ideas, technology, engineering, bio-mechanics, and inspired by the art of Jiu-Jitsu itself.

    My last gi felt restrictive, especially in the pants. The first time I trained with my Origin Black Comp Atleta, I felt like Andy Dufresne after escaping from a false conviction, raising my arms toward the sky. Sweet, sweet freedom. This gi allows me to use more speed and athleticism, which I have to rely on given my technique is so woefully sub-standard compared to my training partners.

    I didn't have to crawl through 500 yards of sewer pipe to re-gain my independence. I just clicked a few buttons on the interwebs and the cost was less than a fancy dinner at a steakhouse.

    Excellent Quality, Better Customer Service

    Posted by ADAM C. on Dec 6th 2018

    Just to help a little with fit: I'm 5'8" about 220lbs I ordered an A4 top and it was just a little too big for me and the A3 is a little too small, following the shrinking for the A4 made it fit pretty well. The quality has been excellent and I have gotten several compliments regarding the Gi and the obvious quality and look of it. Definitely, do the upgrade to the pro pants, they fit perfectly, I love them. I had several interactions with Amanda from customer service. She was the best! It's one thing to offer a great product, but you really take everything to the next level when the customer service is just as good, if not better!

    Great stuff

    Very well made, comfortable and fits well in all the right places. On top of that made in the great state of Maine. Origin will be my choice for years too come!

    It was a little big when I first tried it on, but it came with shrinking instructions to adjust the side in the wash. I followed those instructions then it fit perfectly. The Gi itslef is great. Looks great. Feels great. Buy one. You'll like it.

    Restarted my training after 10 years off

    Posted by Scott Mason on Oct 3rd 2018

    I restarted bjj training after taking 10 years off. I had previously trained no gi mma. At 54 I wanted to focus on bjj and needed a gi. Through Order of Man and Jacko podcasts I was made aware of Origin. Their customer service guided me through the size, type, etc. They were very patient and informative. I LOVE my gi. It fits extremely well and is comfortable. I recommend Origin highly. Great products, better people.

    Finally Found My Perfect Gi

    Posted by Paul Kiffe on Jun 13th 2018

    I have several different gis and this one is the best so far. The material is excellent but what really sets it apart for me is the fit. An upgrade to pro pants made sure the pants were the perfect length. I did have to exchange my jacket for a larger size. the process was easy and the factory was kind enough to alter my sleeves. I wasn't expecting the logos on the pants and front skirt but its ok. Awesome product, excellent customer service. I will definitely purchase my next gi from Origin!!

    Excellent gi.

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 13th 2018

    Aggressive exterior, soft interior. Medium weight, great fit, and durable through 30+ washes so far. Definitely recommend. Not as fitted as some other brands out there, but not baggy like old judoka style gis.

    New to BJJ

    Posted by Derrick Brown on Jun 5th 2018

    I am new to BJJ but I believe you need to have the best gear to perform at your best. I found out about Origin through the Jocko Podcast after doing some research I ordered my gi. After first putting it on you can tell it is not like anything else, the fit is amazing it feels like it was custom tailored for me. It is tough as nails but also "soft" enough to give you full mobility. Now on to the pro pants with the swivel lock again they feel like they were made for me and with the swivel lock no more messing around with the rope and trying to pull it tight enough. I wouldn't doubt if you get a bunch of orders in my area from people commenting on the pants alone. Amazing product and all made in America!!!

    Upon first glance, the gi is well crafted with attention to detail. I am very happy to be purchasing a high quality American made product.

    The website picture shows the front lapel plain with only the emblem embroidered on the back. The gi I received has "ORIGIN USA" embroidered across the front (underneath the belt line). Not sure why there is a difference.
