All of X-guards custom rashguards are IBJJF approved for use as rank rashguards in sanctioned tournaments. The material of the rashguard is designed to protect the skin, wick away moisture and provide the protective benefits of other rashguards. The rashguard is made of a polyester and lycra blend and has a feel very much time Tatami’s Flex Rashguard. The seams are heavily reinforced throughout the rashguard. Read more
"Over the last year X-Guard Brand has made a name for itself by producing high-quality gis at affordable prices (<$140 with shipping included). Something that doesn’t get as much attention is their offering of customized rashguards."

So my friend Bill Thomas hands me a beautiful black GI with gold trim a few weeks ago and asks me to review it for BJJ Weekly. I jumped at the opportunity. Frankly, I had never heard of the brand and so reviewing it was like taking a taste test of a wine without knowing the label. This is as objective as one can get. I have been training in this GI since, washing it in warm water and letting it air-dry each time. Let me say that this is by far the best GI I have ever trained in – Bill: good luck getting it back!... Read more
