Gameness Gi Reviews (Our Take!)

Gameness Gi Reviews

Gameness has one of the amazing and lightest kimonos on the market and this is the main reason why the jiu-jitsu community speaks highly of Gameness.

Alright, it is fair enough so I decided to review that one and another Gameness kimono which is sold a lot.

This actually should not come as a surprise as the company has been around more than two decades (It was founded in 1998). Gameness definitely produces some of the most quality, unique gis and the first gi is a very good example of this.

Exclusive Features

  • Really light
  • Good range of motion
  • IBJJF approved
  • Very durable pants
  • Great comfort

Alright, you should definitely note that this is one of the most unique gis on the market.


The pearl weave has more frequent patterns than most of the other weave types. It can go strong for years without too much deformation.

You can see that many people use this gi as an everyday gi and this weave type is the main reason for that. Some points of the jacket have more deformation while rolling and these points are reinforced.

The military-grade pants will stay the same even after years of jiu-jitsu practice. Ripstop pants are not really tight on the sides which many practitioners appreciate.

Training (Rolling) Performance

This gi offers a decent range of motion and if you look at the picture it is slightly tapered. It is not much and this allows you to do particular submissions at ease.

350 GSM pearl weave jacket and 8 oz. ripstop pants make this gi quite light as well.

Reinforced knees and stress points are important factors for long durability.

Honestly, this gi does not have bad quality and reviews online about rolling performance are almost always amazing. There are even people who had bought Gameness Air Gi when they first started grappling and after a couple of years, they bought it again…

The interesting thing is that this particular kimono has better fitting rates than the other light kimonos on the market. There are way too many people who complain about the fitting of the chest and sides of the other jackets. So if you are one of these people, you should definitely try out this gi.

This alone tells a lot about the quality and craftsmanship of the kimono.

This gi is not really tight on the chest department so it actually allows sweat and heat to escape so you can be comfortable while rolling. The cotton blend also does not irritate skin and thanks to these, Gameness Air Gi gets for the comfort.

The Cost Efficiency: Alright, this one’s price is not as cheap as Sanabul or Elite Sports however it has amazing qualities which plain gis do not have and honestly if you want to roll better on mats and your gi to be made of premium materials then you need to pay a bit more. If you are interested in this gi, you can check out the latest price.

You can check out the craftsmanship and the details of the jacket in a video review below.

By the way, this one is IBJJF approved. If you can do submissions and escapes, mounts… well with this gi, you can also roll with it in the tournaments!


About Gameness Air Pro

Also, guys I really can’t see Gameness Air Pro anywhere. Many of you asked what happened to that gi. One commentator even said that I entered a competition and won the entire thing with it. Well, I could not find it and trust me I tried… Besides, I really don’t see what is the big deal with Pro. It has the design of Gameness Air and only has a different weave type which improves the durability by compromising the weight a little bit. Other than that, it only has more belt loops. This is it. If you want to get a gi that has similar qualities, just go with the gi above you will not regret it.

Gameness Pearl Gi Review

Training Quality: 9.1 / 10.0

Durability: 9.7 / 10.0

Fitting: 8.4 / 10.0

Exclusive Features

  • Durable, pearl weave
  • Reinforced parts
  • Great craftsmanship
  • IBJJF approved
  • Aesthetic
  • Great comfort


  • Pants can be a problem for some people


This gi can go strong even after years of training. The pearl weave and reinforced stress points, knees are important factors for that.

550 gsm pearl weave is one of the most durable weaves out there yet it does not need to be broken in to feel smooth with it. Gameness also had chosen this weave type and complimented it with solid stitching, reinforcements to ensure that you can grapple with it for a long time.

The gi is made of cotton and doesn’t cause rashes. Even though the customers give feedback like that everyone needs to wear a rash guard during BJJ sessions to avoid rashes and feel more comfortable, period.

Training (Rolling) Performance

The gi has seamless back and while you are rolling you will be as comfortable as you can with a gi. The jacket is made of cotton and there is a bit of room to widen for your body type and pants are made of the blend (cotton and poly) and while doing mount attacks the gi does not bother your arms or legs or will not hinder your movement at all.

Gameness Pearl Weave passes the rolling performance test with flying colors. Well, this is what you expect from a reputable gi company right?

Yeah we do however there is an issue and I think everyone needs to be aware of it.

Alright, there is an issue with the pants of this particular model. Gameness Pearl Weave pants are a bit longer than usual. That is great if your legs are taller than average or even average. But if they are shorter than the average you will have problems as it will not feel right and it will be long for your legs… However, if this is you don’t worry! You can just go with the gi above and learn submissions with Gameness Air Gi without an issue.

With that being said, if you are sure that the pants will fit right, you might find this kimono and weave type a good fit for you.

As a side, note this one is also IBJJF approved.

Comfort is similar to Gameness Gi above. After all, these are made of the same materials and the jackets have a similar design.

Cost Efficiency: Surprisingly, this one has an excellent price tag. If you liked the jacket’s and pants’ qualities, I am sure that you will love the price!

Check out the Price

You can see the classic Gameness patch on the shoulders and on pants. These don’t cover too much space and if your academy has a special patch etc. you can sew it anywhere you like even on shoulders.

About Gameness Gis

Even though Gameness has different gi types and the company is quite popular it does not mean that you can wear every gi of the company…

However, you can definitely buy the light ones as these offer a good fit and decent freedom of movement. If that is what you are looking for, get your own Gameness Air Gi and go to your dojo with it. There are a lot of reasons why this gi is the first preference of many jiu-jitsu practitioners all around the world.
