Waterproof Gi Compartment

Have you had the problem of a sweaty gi mucking up the rest of your clean gear? Yea, us too. That's why we designed our Gatame bag with a waterproof compartment.

The Gatame's sweaty gi pouch keeps your sweaty gear separate from everything else. Your work clothes, snacks, second gi, and whatever else you're packing stays fresh and clean.

A Pocket For Everything

One of the best things about a backpack made just for Jiu Jitsu is that it helps you stay organized, since there's a home for each piece of gear.

No more pile of gis, snacks and hydration, and toiletries. Just check each pouch before heading to class.

Comfortably Fit Your Training Gear

Our Gatame bag is designed to fit one set of training gear and clean clothes. Need to pack 2 gis, or just looking for more room? Check out our Randori Duffel Bag.

We proudly back all of our products by the Gold BJJ Guarantee.

If for any reason you're not thrilled with your purchase, we'll replace or refund your order no-questions-asked.

    Perfect BJJ Bag

    Everyone on the internet was right. This is an amazing bag. Accessing the "dirty" compartment on the bottom can be the slightest bit tricky, and the bag seems to be front heavy with my stuff in the top pocket, but this bag is awesome. Really makes training easier and more convenient.

    Great Gi Bag for 1 Gi

    Overall I would say this is the best Gi bag on the market. I recommend you purchase it. The black one is super nice. It looks darker in person and it looks almost bougie. I highly recommend. I wish the black one had yellow lining inside. I also wish the pocket for your dirty Gi/clothes had a bigger opening so my Gi doesn’t catch on the zipper as I insert it (A2 war tribe folded nicely). It nicely distributes the weight on your back so it’s great if you want to walk to the academy. I also love how I can put my flip flops on top with a towel. It fills great. I wish it would expand to fit 2 Gis at a time for traveling. I also wish it would half hooks for your shoes if you ever decide to go home with flip flops. I got one for my friend too and he loves it. I also love how I can just stick it through my driver’s side and not worry about it scratching the interior of my car. This bag was sold out for months/almost a year for a reason.

    Deceptively awesome!

    Have had this backpack for over a month now and I have to say I love it! When it arrived, I thought it would be too small, but I was pleasantly proven wrong. Love the compartment for my gi after rolls. It fits my 32oz Hydroflask no problem, change of clothes for after class and has plenty of other pockets for my tape, keys, phone, etc. I recommend this backpack for anyone tired of having a yard sale on the way into class. My only test now is how long it will hold up to the physical abuse I throw at it.

    This backpack has it all. We now have 2 and will be getting another soon as there are currently 4 in our family doing BJJ.
