DATSUSARA HEMP BLACK COMBAT GI
The Datsusara Combat Gi is the worlds first 100% Hemp Gi made for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (we have been making Hemp BJJ gis since 2008.) Due to the properties of hemp the gi naturally fights microbes like staph and other nasties, it breathes well, it's 4X as strong as cotton and environmentally friendly too. Great for rolling in any weather and so comfortable you could wear them as pajamas on off days. Hemp is ideal for making martial arts gear.
The latest version (shipping late October 2019) features a new improved cut for better movement and fit, it's a bit roomier in certain areas so please check the size chart for a proper fit choice. We will update the size chart and have more pictures soon but the size chart should still be accurate for basic fitting.
Just to be clear, our gis do not come with a belt and the current patches are embroidered, not removable.
Make sure to machine wash and dry your hemp gi a few times (cold water for minimum shrinkage and hot for maximum) before use to prevent any shedding of the natural 100% hemp material.
Choose size carefully, considering up to 3% shrinkage in hot water. We can do exchanges but the gi must be in new condition with tags intact and you will need to pay for shipping both ways. We do not offer split sizes at this time.

Care and Warranty
Bags: You will likely never need to wash your Datsusara bag as hemp stays naturally clean due to it's antimicrobial and breathing properties. In case you do we recommend you only hand wash in cold water (cold water prevents material shrinkage) and line dry. It is possible to machine wash the bags but it's tricky and we cannot warranty against damage from machine washing. As for the "Nasty bags" (which are synthetic) we recommend washing them however you like but line dry.
Apparel: For apparel you can wash however you want. But don't use any bleach as it weakens the hemp, and do keep in mind the hotter the water and dryer setting the more things will shrink.
For new gis we strongly recommend machine washing at least 2-3 times to prevent shedding of the material which occurs naturally with our 100% hemp gis.
Datsusara provides a 3 year warranty on bags and a 1 year warranty on fightwear or apparel against faulty manufacturing. If your item breaks due to a fault in manufacturing while under warranty we will repair or replace it free of charge. Please do remember this does not cover natural wear and tear as any natural fiber will wear over time, faster if you are rough on your gear. Datsusara reserves the right to refuse any warranty claim that it deems to be the consumers fault due to misuse, such as loading up bags with C4 or practicing Jiu Jitsu with badgers. That being said at our discretion we may offer you our wear and tear discount which starts at 30% for year 1, 20% for year two and 10% for year 3.
