Venum has always been known for well made equipment that has intricate graphic design work. But the brand new Contender Gi shows that they have a clean, more reserved, and modern side as well. When paired up with BJJHQ's ultra-low price point of $75, there's no doubt that the Contender is a great buy.
This straightforward blue kimono sees Venum tone down the amount of logos and the size of the graphics, opting to use simple white embroideries and limited contrast trim. The side vents and drawstring loops match the solid blue that's used throughout the body of the Contender. Modest embroideries are located near the left lapel and upper back, done in all white for a classic blue & white color scheme.
Fabrics include a reliable and breathable 350 GSM Pearl weave top, along with hard-wearing twill cotton pants that move and bend with your legs without compromising their overall integrity. There's certainly no shortage of reinforcement stitching, so you can rest assured that your new Venum Gi will hold up in the new year. And don't let the crazy low price-tag mislead you! The Contender is 100% built to withstand the stresses of Jiu Jitsu training, no matter who you are. When your product testers are Rodolfo Vieira and Leandro Lo, you know that they're truly putting the products through the wringer. If it's good enough for Lo and Vieira, it's good enough for us!
was this the gi that dude was wearing while peeing barefoot at a tournament lol
I bought the black one a week or so ago when it was on here. the kimono fit perfectly but the pants were very snug for an A2H. Just a heads up.
I bought the white Venum Contender. When it showed up the stitching was a different color, the Gi string was a different color and it was just super cheap build quality. Save your money for a Fuji. I won't even put this Gi on my grappling dummy.
Jeez, these Venom gis are terrible....
