Comfort & Fit

The jacket on the Adidas Quest fit snug on average. While some reviewers have noted the sleeves tend to come up a bit short. However, this gi comes preshrunk for a more ideal fit. The Adidas Quest’s jacket weighs in at 600 gram and is quick to dry and breathable. This medium weight gi is ideal for everyday training.

Conclusion

The Adidas contest gi is a great choice for anyone looking for a comfortable, roomy bjj gi with an iconic design. I’m not sure if this gi is IBJJF safe due to the strips but regardless it would still make a solid training gi.

Adidas Champion BJJ Gi Review

adidas champion

The Adidas Champion BJJ Gi is designed specifically for competition. Coming IBJJF approved and tailored cut with Adidas patent “adi-weave” fabric blend this gi looks sharp. The Champion BJJ gi comes standard with the Adidas quality guarantee.

Design

The Jacket sports a very striped down minimal look without Adidas iconic stripes that were on the Quest. However, the jacket does have a minimal Adidas embroidered logo on the shoulder.

Build Quality

The Atama Mundial 9 gi is made from Carioca weave material. The Carioca weave has 580 GSM and is 100% cotton. This same material is found throughout this gi and gives it a one-weave construction.

Jacket Build:
  • Light, durable and preshrunk
  • Adidas logo embroidered on shoulder
  • 550 gram
  • Adi weave blend"(60% cotton, 40% polyester)
  • Synthetic heat resistant lapel insert
Pants Build:
  • 8 oz ripstop pants
  • Double reinforced knee padding
  • 6 drawstring loops
Comfort & Fit

The outer material of the jacket is rough and perfect for fighting your opponents grip. This gi is a bit heavy at 550 gsm but the weight isn’t too noticeable. The gi does feel stiff initially but over time gradually softens up.The pants are made of ripstop and are comparable to the jacket in terms of quality.

Conclusion

Adidas has built a solid clean looking competition or training gi in the Champion bjj gi. The overall quality is great and sure to last up to tough roll sessions.

Adidas Contest BJJ Gi Review

The Adidas Contest BJJ Gi is a high quality training gi with the iconic stripe branding. The jacket is made from a heavier 450 gsm pearl weave fabric.

Design

The jackets most striking feature is the iconic Adidas stripes that run across the shoulders. The Adidas Contest gi comes standard in white, blue or black and is 100% cotton.

Build Quality
Jacket Build:
  • 450 gsm
  • "Adi-weave" blend
  • Pre shrunk
  • 100% Cotton
  • Slightly Tailored
Pants Build:
  • 280 gram drill cotton
  • Thick elastic drawstring
  • Six belt loops
  • Embroidered stripe patches
Comfort & Fit

Since the Adidas Contest bjj gi comes pre-shrunk there is minimal shrinkage. Also, the pants are soft, roomy and comfortable. However, due to the 450 gsm weave jacket the gi does feel a bit heavier during rolling.

Conclusion

Due to the stripes I am not sure if the Contest is IBJJF competition legal but it does make an excellent addition as a training gi. Built using high quality materials and complete with the iconic Adidas logo this gi is certainly worth consideration.

Summary

As a huge sports brand, selling everything from football apparel to cologne I was a bit skeptical at first. But Adidas has shown they aren’t disconnected from Brazilian jiu jitsu. They have built a line of clean looking minimal BJJ gis with some IBJJF approved for competition. Their Gi lineup is great for everyday training or tough competitions.
