Jiu Jitsu Gi Size Chart

Gold BJJ Gi Size Chart

This size chart is for unisex sizes (A0 to A5) for all of our gis. We also offer our gis in womens' and kids' cuts.

You might find that your frame is suitable for multiple sizes - gi sizing is a matter of personal taste. If you like a tighter, more slim fitting cut you should err toward the smaller size. If you prefer extra room in your gi you can choose the larger size in your range.

While we use pre-shrunk fabric in all of our gis, you can still expect some shrinkage (especially if you're washing in hot water, or tumble drying). A good rule of thumb is heavier weight gis (like our Valiant or Calavera) will shrink more than lighter weight gis (like our Aeroweave). For more information on gi shrinkage, check out this video.

Not sure if you're choosing the right size? We get it, gi sizing can be tricky. That's why we offer totally free pre-paid returns.

Introducing the
Foundation Gi

The Foundation gi features:

  • 450gsm Pearl Weave Jacket
  • Rash Guard Jacket Liner
  • 10oz Ripstop Pants
  • Elastic "FOR THE JOURNEY" drawstring

IBJJF Compliant

The Foundation Gi (in all 3 colors) has been designed to meet all IBJJF competition requirements.

The medium weight of this gi is ideal for competitors. It's light enough to help with making weight, but heavy enough to prove difficult for your opponent to grip.

The Perfect
Everyday Gi

The Foundation Gi is built with a classic Pearl Weave that is a great weight for all climates and training environments.

Please note that our gis do not include belts.

    Most comfortable gi

    This gi is seriously awesome. It's the most comfortable gi I own/tried and the sizing is perfect. I'll be eventually replacing all my gis with Gold BJJ gis.

    New Gi

    My first Gold Gi and I like it very much. My only wish is that Gi companies would offer mixed sizes. Like many other people the perfect top and bottom for me are not the same size.
