Jiu Jitsu Scholar | 93 Brand Citizen Fight Shorts | Gear Review

93 Brand Citizen Shorts

Many currently are unfamiliar with 93 Brand Jiu Jisu. The small Jiu Jitsu company based in the United States is becoming a leader in creating premium gear with artistic flair. Artist collaborations with Gawakoto and Meerkatsu have created a strong underground following and continued growing customer base. Though they are without an official store, there products can be found on Martial Arts Supplies.

Recent 93 Brand Jiu Jitsu launched their Citizen Fight Shorts. I instally hopped on the deal when it was offered on BJJHQ, and I was not disappointed in the least.

When first opening the package I could feel the quality in which these shorts were produced.

Every Day Usage

   Now, when they first arrived I put them on and wore them around the house while I finished off the errands. They were tremendously comfortable and breathable. Some shorts start can overheat if they are more designed like board shorts such as TapOut. But these felt great, the material is soft and has free range of motion. The two Velcro fortifying systems made the shorts feel extremely secure.  After some basic calisthenics and stretching to test durability; it was off to training to conduct the real test.

Live Training

Even today some shorts still don’t use sublimated designs. These shorts crack and lose logos after a few rolls or going through the washer and dryer. So to know that all the designs were sublimated increased my confidence in the durability of the shorts. My confidence was not misplaced. These shorts preformed exquisitely. They did not inhibit any of my movements and continued to have a free range of motion. They didn’t ride up or slip down due the gripping waistband, didn’t overheat, and showed no signs of defect with the materials. The material that connects the panels over the crotch is fantastic as it is fast drying and extremely flexible.

Concerns

My first concern was about the fitting and the elastic waistband. I’m not a huge fan of elastic waistbands but most only for the look of it when the shorts bunch up. These shorts do not do that for the most part and stretch to fit comfortably around the waist with a hint of secured tightness. The fit was amazing! I have been losing weight consistently over the years but have large hips. So my size is always depending on the style of garment. I wear 34, 33, and 32 inched waist for my shorts and pants. I bought a 32 inch as 34 would have been too big. The concern about the elastic waistband was crushed again as it made these shorts fit snug and comfortable for those of athletic prowess.

Conclusion
Overall these shorts are a must buy! I have recommended 93 Brand Jiu Jitsu gear to my friends and training partners as the quality of their equipment is top of the line. My favorite brands of grappling shorts are No-Gi, Sprawl, and Clinch Gear; I feel those brands represent the best quality shorts on the market. There is no over emphasis on the design which is a positive in my opinion. Quality should always come first and these shorts deliver. I put these in my Top Five Grappling Shorts.

If you’re interested in the shorts they can still be purchased of Martial Arts Supplies
