Comments about Century Ripstop 420 Lightweight Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi:
Ordered this gi as a gift for a friend. Unfortunately I'm going to have to return it as the sizes run large. I ordered the A2, which will be too big for her. I tried it on and it's a perfect fit form me. I'm 6'1", 175 lbs, female (long legs). the legs and sleeves are the perfect length for me, perhaps even on the long side. I'd definitely shrink the pants a bit as they almost touch the ground and I have long legs. The pants are made of the same material as the Gi, the heavy cross hatch ripstop. Usually with ripstop Gi's the pants are a lighter fabric, not the case here. They are really well reinforced in the knees too. This seems to be a really well made Gi, (I haven't rolled in it as I'm returning it to get a smaller size for my friend). The A2 weighs 3.5 lbs so it's not really a "lightweight" gi. I think this has a bit to do with the pants being heavy. This could be a pro or a con - they're not going to wear out on you anway! Jacket is 2 lbs and the pants 1.5 lbs.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The Gi is about 4 lbs. The ripstop is not made of nylon.

I'm trying to find a plain white Gi with no patches or embroidery, is there anything like that on this Gi? I can't see the sides of the sleeves in the product photographs but the front and back look clear.
The IBJJF website lists a brief section in its rules on gi eligibility. Please refer to their website's section on rules.
Some things to note: They can also be quite strict about things like patch placement, lapel thickness (not too thick), belt length (not too short or long), and color of the gi. Patches may only be affixed in authorized regions of the gi, which the information can be found on their website.
