Look and feel:

The Submission FC Hemp shirt is by far one of the most comfy shirts and well fitted i have ever had in my collection. The shirts are not overly roomy for the size i chose. ( a large by the way) The graphics are not overly obnoxious like you see on some other BJJ shirts out there which i find to be a nice added addition. As part of my testing i put the shirts through 2 washes. The first time i washed em i put them to hang dry with no shrinkage. I will say i ran the shirts on a warm wash. The 2nd wash was on the same temp water and a low heat dry. After the drying cycle  the shirts show no signs of shrinkage and are just as good as when they came out the package. 







Conclusion:

Just like their Gi's Submission FC has hit home again with another great product these shirt and the quality are something that i am going to look forward to wearing for a very long time. These shirts look and feel like nothing i have ever worn before and i am glad to have had the chance to review them. If you want one check out the link below...
