Hemp gis are more durable because hemp is simply much stronger than cotton. Hemp is naturally anti-microbial and breathes better than cotton. That part is especially great when you consider rolling in the summer indoors. Feeling all stuffy and overheated in your gi is one of the worst feelings. It certainly distracts from your learning and makes it more difficult to focus on learning technique.
Each type of BJJ Gi has its own benefits. Since there are so many different types and styles of BJJ gis, we’ve created The Best Jiu Jitsu Gi Buying Guide. Give it a look if you need some guidance on what type of gi to buy, or just want to learn more about all the different kinds of BJJ Gis.
