Although the Jotunn gi has your typical standard jacket and hi- durable pants layout with the company logo patch, its breakout feature is the uniform's construction and fabric material. Wearing a single or double weave gi can be at times a very strenuous and not so pleasurable experience. The wear and tear, the stiffness, and not to mention those gi burns inflected on your skin can be quite irritating for any BJJ practitioner.

In contrast the Assassin Kimono is made out of 450 gram of Crystal Weave fabric which also carries a robustness life span making it a light weight fabric composition while also holding the durability of a heavier gi. For those that are not familiar with Crystal Weave material it is by far one of the most comfortable garments you can ever flaunt on the mat.

It is almost synonymous to wearing a warm sweater on a cold winter day or being wrapped in a thick soft blanket while practicing your favorite technique. These attributes alone aids in increasing one's training experience while allowing one to work hard comfortably.

When it comes to washing the uniform you can follow two procedures. One choice is if you are paranoid about shrinking dilemmas fill your bath tub with cold water and hand wash the gi for two to five minutes. Another option would be to put it in the wash machine in cold water and take it out immediately after it stops {Note: do not bleach}. No matter what step you choose make sure you hang dry the kimono so it can retain its physical image and keep it well intact.

In addition to their great kimono Jotunn also offers a variety of no-gi gear for their gi-less enthusiast out there. Their rash guard and shorts products hold the distinct feature for it outstanding design layout which will attract in viewer's eye to yearn to purchase the products. (Items sold separately)
