Submission FC Aura Gi Pants Review
This is obviously a Submission FC Aura Gi Pant review given the lucrative title of this article, but I am wondering if we need to discuss these in a jiu-jitsu setting at all. Trying the Aura Gi Pant on for the first time last month left me wondering if I could just replace my weekend lounge pants with these ultra comfortable Gi bottoms.
Rip stop is my favorite material usually for comfort but this poly/cotton blend is so soft that I don’t want to take them off. In the winter months especially when skin gets dry here in the Midwest, I often battle with using enough fabric softener on my BJJ gear to eliminate the inevitable skin burn from rolling around on the mats. With about a month of usage thus far, I can say that the Aura Gi Pant is my new favorite when temperatures hit freezing and the air is dry. This material is soft and it stays soft even after multiple washes.

The 5 loop drawstring pant design has become my favorite since first trying on Hemp Sensation GI and I am happy that it continues to be a feature of the Submission FC pant design. Overall the fit at the waist is perfect on this Gi pant. If you are in between sizes I might suggest going a size down as the material is pre-shrunk and likely will be too big if you size up.
After about a month of use, you can see the stitching on the logo is starting to fray a bit. Overall the pants have held up well though given the aggressive nature of the sport with constant grabbing and pulling of the Gi.
As with all the Submission FC products, the cuff seam tape and stitching is well made and gives the pants a nice finished look. The color scheme of black with white/blue logos works well together.
In conclusion, we would suggest these pants for anyone looking for a comfortable and relatively inexpensive pair to use with no-Gi jiu jitsu or replace a pair of pants that has worn out from an existing set. You know the pants are always the first to go, might as well have backups handy.
