Where to begin with this alternative material rash guard...
For one, the cut and fit of the rash guard is wonderful. I'm sure I'm not only grappler annoyed by rash guards that roll up and expose our bellies and get stuck up there. In my opinion submission fc hit the mark with the fit.
I've worn the rash guard as much as I can, both with and without the gi. And so far, the rash guard's construction has held up well. The logos, being sublimated, is there to stay.
Now the aesthetics of the the rash guard are crisp and clean. The only thing I was confused by was the design around the logo. For the longest time I thought that it was the ink bleeding on the rash guard. It wasn't until after a friend reminded me of the rash guards material, the cloud around the logo finally made sense. However, it is a bit of an eyesore. It makes the otherwise great rash guard appear imperfect. Overall, the rash guard is great. It fits well, and other than the ink bleed cloud, looks sharp.
Submission Fight Co.'s Hemp Sensation has some good, bad, and ugly things about it. First the good: Well it's a 70/30 blend of hemp and cotton. I am a sucker for alternative materials for gis. After my first experience with a 100% hemp gi, I was wondering how SFCo was going to pull it off. The thing of it is, they do. The gi is durable. I put myself and the gi through some tough sessions on and off the mat. I had team mates pulling at from all positions, from the lightest to the heaviest team mates. Off the mats I washed it hot, cold and everything in between. I've even washed it four times in one week. For the most part hemp sensation held up well. I enjoy the cut of the jacket. Now I know that this is a personal preference and it also depends on your body type. I am 5'2" and 145 lbs, and the jacket fit me like a glove. No excessive sleeves for people to take advantage, and not too short to be IBJJF tournament legal. I also liked the look of the embroidery, not too loud and not too thick where it would inhibit my movement. It is a personal gripe of mine to have huge chunks of embroidery on the arms and legs.
