    I replied to a post further down...but got no response. I have heard that these shorts are made out of Gi material. Is there any truth to that?

    Yes and no!

    No - The VT-Pro shorts are made of military Rip-Stop fabric. This fabric is not the normal canvas used on kimonos.

    Yes - The new Atama Carioca Trim kimono is made of Rip-Stop fabric on collar and pants.

    You can't go wrong with VT-Pro shorts, they are very strong, fit really nice and will last forever.

    What about the graphics?I have heard from some people that graphics peel off very fast.

    To be honest, I never heard any complaints about that. They look pretty solid.

    I still think I want to try them out.

    so they probably wouldn't be too good for getting wet? occasionally my fight shorts double as a swim suit...

    I personally wouldn't use any of my grappling shorts as a bathing suit. They cost too much to risk IMO.

    they are not worn in a pool or exposed to chlorine. occasionally the lake when a suit is left at home.

    shoot...they get soaked in sweat every time i wear them...can it be that much worse?

    I have a pair of the Vt's. Love them. Mainly because Im usually the only person rocking the Korals :$ I really dislike them for MT tho. For grappling they are cool tho.

    Well than I'm sure they will be fine. I assumed they would be getting used in a pool.
