    Alright guys i made the pics big so you could see the material they are made of and so on, they are a little dirty from me rolling in them for the first time yesturday but hopefuly these pics are good enough. I will write a review in a few weeks after i have had the chance to train in them enough to see how they hold up. I'll get some better pics in a few days when i decide to wash them and hopefully i can get my girl to take some pics of me wearing them to give you an idea of the length and all that good stuff. I will tell you this already that these shorts are a little shorter than most.

    First pic kind of gives you an idea of the material the black part is made of.

    Does the gi material feel heavy? Do you feel it helps prevent slipping out of subs?

    I believe i paid $51.00 plus $16.00 for shipping. A little pricey but no one else was buying and reviewing so i nutted up and forked over the cash.

    Gi material doesn feel too heavy to me at all. It's pretty tacking but needless to say i didnt catch anyone in an arm bar that day so hard to tell, but i did accidentally skid my nuckle across it and felt the grip then!

    Sizing is a little different in these so be careful and ask questions before you order.

    I wear a 34 in like express and old navy jeans!

    I wear a 32 in these shorts which is still a tad too big but the draw string helps that problme but i probably could have went with a size 31.

    NoGi USA shorts will hold up for a lot longer I think. The transfers feel like they'll come off after a few training sessions and washes

    1 Wash in so we will see after a few more how they hold up.

    Chris Brennan stepped up to the plate and offered to send me a pair of US nogi shorts to write an unbiased review so i'm kind of waiting on those before i start a full review.

    We'ce sold hundreds of pairs of these shorts and we have only had one pair returned on a quality issue and that (IMHO) was nit-picking. We have had problems with the sizing though. The sizes you need to know before you order as the Brazilian sizing system is way out. We're waiting for another big order of these coming in but I know we have some XXL in stock now (about 40-41 waist).
    The quality and feel of these shorts are good though. Plus they have a great snug fit. I washed them an dried them in the drier and they didn't shrink more than any other shorts.

    Is Brazilian sizing smaller than US sizes? I got a medium Brazilian tee and its snugger than my American sized tees.

    Went to your site and the only option was a medium? Is this incorrect?

    Yes they run smaller in shirts and they have a different sizing for the waist.
