ORIGIN "DEF DNA" BJJ GI - Made in America

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

Our DEF DNA is a brand new take on an old school weave. Featuring American Smart Pearl© Gen 3.

The DEF DNA comes standard with Origin Pro Pants. For athletes who demand more during competition, choose the DEF DNA. 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.

The Difference is Our Proprietary Technologies

    Best cotton Gi I own

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 8th 2019

    I am a big hemp Gi fan, but this cotton mix is amazing. Very soft, great for rolling, and wicks off sweat very well. The cut/fit is very good. The Gi moves with the body as you roll. When you wash the Gi, it feels almost dry after only going through the rinse cycle in the washer!

    White Jocko Gi.

    Posted by Kaelen Childers on Oct 18th 2019

    I bought the black gi first. I like the way black gis look a lot more. When i received the white one I was surprised with how clean it looks. Its so thin and strong. I would buy a jocko blue if they came out with one. The only discrepancy I found was there was no belt for the gi pants in the package, but everyone forgets things sometimes and I have an extra. Thank you origin. Ill be a returning customer.

    Best fitting gi

    Posted by Gabriel Aseron on Aug 24th 2019

    First off this gi fits amazing! I’m 6ft 265lbs and I wear an A4 Jacket with 40 (you wear size 38 jeans). I wear a standard inseam of 28 inches which has a range from 5’9” to 6’

    The gi jacket feels amazing esp finally around the upper body and under arm area (I’ve had other his feel tight in the under arm area). This gi allows for a great range of motion in the arm area while being fitted as long as you follow the size chart. The gi pants are awesome in itself! It feels good especially around the hip and butt area.

    I’d also like to point out how this gi outfit feels good even when you are deep in training when your body has been sweating for awhile. Not sure if this was intentional or not but both the gi jacket and pants are really good at wicking sweat.

    Awesome gi, awesome customer service, you definitely get what you pay for and I would highly recommend this gi!

    Origin is amazing

    Posted by Jeff on Mar 7th 2019

    I had a bit of a BJJ emergency. The origin team was able to get me this very quickly. That in and of itself was pretty amazing, but when I received the Gi i was even more impressed. It’s hard to describe how comfortable and well fitting it is. I will not buy another brand of gi as long as I’m doing jujitsu.

    My New Favorite Gi!

    Posted by Jason Lopez on Feb 15th 2019

    First, it should be said Origin's customer service is first class. This was my first purchase of an Origin gi and it was initially too big, so I had to exchange it. The exchange process was so easy, fast and frictionless.

    Second, from moment I put on the gi I knew this one is different from my others (Kingz, Shoyoroll, CK). The fit and feel are amazing and after a hard night of rolling, this is my favorite gi. I will be buying more and rotating out my others for only Origin.

    I love how this quality gi is 100% American and better than the rest. Thank you Origin!

    Second, I

    My Fave!!

    Posted by Ann Marcario Bord on Jan 16th 2019

    I love this Gi. Amanda helped my find the correct fitting pants. I love that the pants fit like real pants. There are no ties to come undone and they don't fall down.
    The pants are comfy and light. The top is like wearing a bathrobe. I slide around easily on the mat and have an easier time breaking grips on the Gi. I get lots of compliments on this Gi. We all love the logos!!

    Huge improvement over my previous gi.

    Posted by Brent on Dec 30th 2018

    This gi is a huge improvement over my old one. It's light, mobility is excellent, and it dries quickly. Also the pro pants fit great and the belt is light years ahead of the old draw string. Five stars.

    Best Gi I Have Ever Owned

    Posted by Jack Cox on Dec 15th 2018

    This is by far the best gi I have ever owned. The jacket is strong and lightweight, the cut is perfect and the quality is second to none. You can see the personal detail and care that has been taken throughout the entire process. The stitching is a work of art. My only slight criticism is the pants are a little snug across the tops of my thighs, but I have this problem with most pairs of pants that I wear. I will never buy a gi from another company again.
