With a 500gsm single weave and a 60/40 cotton and polyester blend, the Adidas J500 is designed mostly for training, but it can also be used in competitions, however, if you are looking for a serious competition gi from Adidas, our recommendation is to check out the Adidas Champion IJF Judo Uniform.
Now back to the J500. The J500 features reinforced stitching in crucial areas that undergo significant stress during training and competition. This reinforcement enhances the durability of the gi, minimizing the risk of tearing or fraying.
The pants are also very light and they don’t restrict your movement at all. All in all, this is a gi that will work amazingly if you are practicing in a hot and humid area, as the fabric helps to keep you cool and comfortable, allowing you to focus on your techniques without feeling weighed down.
