Grammage and composition: what they mean
The grammage is the weight of a fabric per square metre.
For judo, it's best to have a uniform in durable fabric that holds up during not only grips but in the wash as well!
That's why we chose a fabric in 75% cotton and 25% polyester: it holds up better to pulling and washing.
With a grammage of 990 g/sqm, the high-quality fabric is well-suited to regional and national competitions (not IJF-certified).
A collar and fabric that are suited to competing:
During competitions, the more resistant your uniform is to pulling, the more difficult you are to hold. We created this uniform with a grammage of 990 g/sqm and a very rigid collar to make it easier to get out of holds.
The front of the collar is curved for a more elegant look. This means your uniform jacket fits your body and will naturally lie in a closed position.
About the 900 Judo uniform
For competitions, we created a fitted uniform suited to your practice: the sleeve length, looseness at the shoulders and fitted waist let you move with ease.
With its rice grain and diamond patterns and sleek design, it follows the traditional judo codes.
And the bottoms? They are more durable at the knees for floor-based combat and have a traditional cord fastening at the waist.
Enrique, Outshock product manager, talks about the benefits of judo:
"I come from karate and one thing always impressed me with judo - this idea of strength and ease at the same time. Judokas practise with an elegance that is really great to see. I also like the idea that the dojo is more than just a place: you learn a lot about yourself outside those four walls. These are the values that I found at Outshock and that we want to share in our judogis."
CHOOSING YOUR UNIFORM SIZE
Our size chart takes uniform shrinkage into account, which is between 3% and 6% depending on how you wash it.
Choose the judo uniform that corresponds to your measurements - there's no need to buy up a size.
For ultimate comfort, our judo uniforms are available in sizes 160 cm to 200 cm.
How to take care of your uniform
We suggest airing out your uniform after every use. To keep them white, be sure to wash them regularly. One pointer? Wash on a cold wash for the first few times. When you dry it, it's best to let it air dry and never use the dryer.
