    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.

    Great quality Gi

    Posted by Alex on Nov 28th 2018

    The sizing chart was spot on. The quality is top notch and very comfortable to wear. I would highly recommend this Gi.

    Dear God its beautiful....

    Posted by JAMES on Oct 15th 2018

    I feel like Mugatu when Derek Zoolander unleashed Magnum to the world... the Gi is stunning.

    I own two Athelta Gi and a Kano. I prefer this Gi to them both. Its just a very nice gi. The pearl weave is amazing and im 5'10 200lb and the medium fits perfectly.
    If you love Jocko this Gi will give you super powers, especially if you have a mullet.

    Just Buy it

    Posted by Daniel on Oct 5th 2018

    Bottom Line: I could not be more happy with this purchase. This is the GI to buy. Outstanding construction, comfortable, easy to clean and easy to dry. If you are on the fence, I would say go ahead and try it. And this is a BOLD statement, coming from me, a guy who NEVER buys clothing and seldom spends money.

    Background: I started doing BJJ about 12 years ago but just got back into it. Have had a ~9 year break from doing 'GI BJJ' due to operational tempo from being in The US Military. My career has 'temporarily' settled down and I decided to re-enroll in formal BJJ training. I still have my old gis but decided to try out an Origin Gi. Was completely blown away. I had no idea that it was even possible for the Gi to be so comfortable. Especially with the pants.

    I hope Origin eventually gets an opportunity to make military uniforms. I have read about and heard some things about this company's history. It gives me satisfaction knowing that I am engaging in commerce with a company whose cause I believe in. I originally got my undergraduate degree in polymer/fiber/textile engineer only to discover that jobs in this industry were drying up in America. Glad to someone is reversing this trend.

    Gives me super powers

    Posted by James on Oct 5th 2018

    I own 4 origin gis. This one is my favorite. Something about the stiching makes me "get after it" more. Fits great.
    Only thing i kinda wish it had stiching on the pants but its not a big deal.
    Its like having a mini Jocko yelling in your ear
