How to Choose a BJJ Rashguard

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned grappler, selecting the right rashguard is crucial for a comfortable and enjoyable training experience. New gear, new me, same trash jiu jitsu.

In this post we explore valuable tips to help you find the ideal rashguard that suits your training needs.

1. Material Matters: Seek Comfort and Durability

A high-quality rashguard is like a loyal companion on the mat. Look for rashguards crafted from premium materials like polyester-spandex blends or nylon. These materials offer excellent breathability, moisture-wicking properties, and durability to withstand intense training sessions. With the right fabric, you'll feel comfortable and focused throughout your rolls!

2. Compression Fit: Enhance Performance and Reduce Injuries

Opt for a rashguard with a compression fit. This form-fitting design not only supports your muscles, promoting better blood flow, but also protects your skin from mat burns, scratches, and other minor abrasions. Experience improved performance and reduced recovery time with the added benefits of compression!

3. Eye-Catching Designs: Reflect Your Unique Style

Express your personality and style with a rashguard that speaks to your inner JNGL beast! Look for brands that offer a variety of design options inspired by different themes. Whether you prefer bold patterns, sleek designs, or artistic graphics, find a rashguard that showcases your individuality! We might have you covered.

4. Quality Stitching: Ensure Longevity

Choose a rashguard with reinforced and durable stitching. Double or flatlock stitching, which JNGL uses, ensures that your rashguard can handle the rough and tumble nature of BJJ without compromising its structure. A well-stitched rashguard guarantees longevity and helps you make the most out of your investment!

5. Sun Protection: Stay Shielded on and off the Mat

Whether you train outdoors or participate in competitions, a rashguard with built-in UV protection is a wise choice. Look for rashguards with UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating, providing an extra layer of protection against harmful sun rays. You can wear these rashguards for normal workouts, runs, bike rides... so UV protection shouldn't be ignored if this is you.

6. Mobility and Flexibility: Don't limit Your Range of Motion

When it comes to BJJ, mobility and flexibility are paramount. Opt for a rashguard that features 4-way stretch technology, allowing you to move freely without feeling restricted. Unleash your full range of motion as you execute techniques with grace and fluidity!

7. Ventilation: Stay Cool During High-Octane Rolls

Intense training sessions can get hot and sweaty, but the right rashguard can keep you cool-ish. Seek out rashguards with strategically placed mesh panels for enhanced breathability and ventilation. This isn't mandatory, I've honestly never been able to tell the difference, too busy trying to survive but something to think about. Also, breathability can lead to rips and tears... but whatever you want, mat killer.

8. Sizing: Find Your Perfect Fit

A well-fitting rashguard is essential for optimal performance. Refer to the brand's sizing chart to find the right fit that hugs your body comfortably. Avoid rashguards that are too loose or too tight, and ensure your chosen rashguard lets you move with ease!

There you have it, fellow BJJ enthusiasts! Armed with these tips, you're now ready to embark on your quest for the perfect BJJ rashguard. Remember to prioritize comfort, durability, and functionality, and choose a design that reflects your unique BJJ spirit!

Good Luck,

Enter the JNGL.
