Datsusara are a relatively new fightgear company specialising in products made from hemp fibre. Hemp is reputedly meant to be stronger (than cotton), with anti-microbial properties and longer lasting.
The gi I received was too big for me despite shrink washing, plus it came at a time I was extremely busy, so rather than let it sit un-reviewed, I asked my good friend, and also highly rated BJJ blogger, Slidey to review this gi on my behalf. Go to his website to check it out:
The gi I received was a first generation full production model. It had a lot of flaws in my opinion - and my conclusions were the same as those found by Slidey.
I'm hopeful that Datsusara, who by the way make a very kick ass series of gear bags, will make significant improvements in their next generation model as I love their ethos and they seem to have all the right intentions.
