At first glance, the new JACO gi has a crisps, simplistic appeal to it. This is a no-bullshit, clean looking BJJ gi with no gaudy patch. Although accent stitching would have been a nice contrast to an otherwise white gi, it’s still very stylish! It comes standard with a custom, embroidered JACO emblem prominently featured on both shoulders and the back.
The jacket also sports the JACO logo sublimated on the inside and is made from a pearl weave material.
I’ve had the JACO Unity for a little while now and I’m still breaking it in a bit. However, up until this point it shows almost no wear and tear. Considering the lightweight feel of this material I’ve been very surprised at how well it’s held up.
When I first tried the jacket on, it fit perfectly aside from the extra length within the arms. The weave on the jacket is light and breathable to prevent overheating while training. The minimal look is one of my favorite features about the Gi aside from the lightweight feel and the sturdiness of the drawstring . The drawstring is made from a soft nylon material that keeps your pants tied securely around your waist.
This gi is lightweight but that doesn’t mean it’s not durable. The pants are made from a ripstop material with reinforced stitching in the knees for added durability. Also, the pants come with a high quality logo stitched onto the pants along with some custom imagery and “Refuse to be ordinary” embroidered. Additionally, the jacket comes reinforced stitching along the knees and vents for added longevity.
The JACO Unity Lightweight Gi is hands down one of the nicer gis I’ve tried in awhile. It’s a solid choice if you plan on training for a long time and are considering competing thanks to its lighter feel. Especially considering the JACO Unity gi is IBJJF approved.
The UNITY Gi is an excellent choice, made from 100% pre shrunk cotton fabric with heavy reinforced seams, ventilation taping and more. This gi is a must have for Jiu Jitsu practitioners who are looking to make an investment in their gi selection.
