  1. The path... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 17th 2018

    Don't think, just pull the trigger. This is my first GI and I bought it right before I started training at a studio that STRONGLY suggests that you buy the "studio" GI. So... now I have two GIs and the difference is night and day. The DEF GI fits true to the size chart. I got the A2 Long as my arms are a little long (normally wear 36-37" collared shirts).

    The material can remain stiff or you can soften it up depending on how you wash it (instructions included). I decided to soften it up. I hang dry it and it dries at least twice as fast as my other GI.

    It is a little more money than the "standard" GI you can find online but as Stephen R. Covey stated in his book (7 habits of highly effective people) you must "begin with the end in mind." The end for me is years down the road being a beast on the mat wearing a GI born and raised in the USA.

  2. My favorite gi in my collection 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 12th 2018

    I own 8 gi's now, including a black Axion that I have yet to wear because my black DEF gi fits like a glove and is now my favorite. First, off, I'm a big guy (6'4" 270lbs, size XL t-shirt and 40x32" pants), so I was hesitant to trust the sizing chart. I wear an A5 in pretty much every brand but Origin, which had me sized at an A4, but it fits perfectly. I have worn this gi religiously since I received it after Father's Day, and all of my other Gi's are feeling neglected. The Pro Pants are amazing, and I am enjoying the simplicity of the belt system. These are the first pants I've trained in that don't end up coming down on me during training. I don't ever want to go back to drawstrings ever again. The kimono is light but very strong. After two weeks of rolling in it and immediately cold water washing it and hang drying, the fit has stayed perfect. Best of all, where it takes most of my gi's 24-36 or more hours to hang dry, I can hang this one up at 10 PM and it is dry when I get up at 5 AM, and that is without using a fan to speed things up. My Fuji academy issue, 93Brand, and Hypnotik gi's all require a box fan to dry within 24 hours, and the Fuji has taken as long as 48 hours before.

    This was my first order with Origin, but I had communicated with them via text a week prior while looking at several different items (spats, rashguards), and they were quick to provide answers to my questions and sizing inquiries. Apparently, Pete and I are sized very similarly, which may explain why this fits so well.

    I am planning to pick up another one of these, probably in white (a color I actively avoid because it gets dingy so quickly), or maybe just another black one so this one won't wear so quickly. I'm sure at some point I'll use another one of my gi's, but not any time soon. I'm an Origin fan for life.

  3. Best gi I own for an awesome price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 8th 2018

    First off I would like to state I have a hard time finding gi's. Being 275 and 5'10" makes sizes weird for me and I hate to get alterations. I was recommended Origin by another guy at my gym because you could choose pants based on your actual pants waist and length size and not the A# system (A4's are too long, A3's are to tight). I went with the Jocko because it came with pro pants, the gi looks awesome, and for the price, it didn't seem like a bad deal. I went with an A5 top and 40x32 pants (I wear size 38 pants). The top was a little big at first but I emailed Origin and they got right back to me and recommended I send it through the wash and shrink it. Sent it through the wash on warm water and drier and it fits PERFECTLY. When I say perfect, I really mean perfect, like I have no other gi that fits and feels better. The materials are top notch, its soft but feel sturdy. The pants I had to send back and went a size up. Their customer service is the best (thanks for all the help Amanda!) and their return policy is great. No questions asked to return on the pants, sent them back, got the next size up and they are perfect (and for made to order pants they came back in less than a week). I cant recommend this gi enough if you're a big person and have trouble finding the perfect fit gi. It's definitely worth the price and the Jocko gi just looks plain badass. Thank you Origin, you have a customer for life.
