Our updated "C-SPEC" construction introduces quite a few improvements to accommodate the modern style of Gi Jiu Jitsu. We've re-shaped certain panels to address some short-comings of the traditional BJJ Gi design, and we've added two-ply paneling along strategic areas in order to make it less likely your opponent keeps an annoying strong grip. Comprehensive bullet-points for all updated specs can be found below, but here's a breakdown of some of the noteworthy changes:
Reinforced Lower Jacket with Modified Lapels
We all hate being stuck in a nasty Lapel Guard, so we've added a 2nd panel of Pearl Weave along the bottom of the skirt, along with slanting the ends of the lapel - the idea being to make the material harder to bunch up for grips, and the angle of the lapel ends making it harder for opponents to get a strong grip on the bottom of your lapels.
Angled Sleeve Reinforcements
The C-SPEC makes standard our two-ply sleeve design (seen on previous models like our Goose Feather), which helps fight the strength of opponent's grips, whether it's Spider Guard, Lasso, or Judo grips.
Extended Yoke Panel
Full lining is not IBJJF approved, so we simple extended the shoulder/yoke panel down a few inches.
Knee Panel Reconstruction
Traditional Gi pants see a rectangular panel straight down the front leg. But bull-fighter grips often involve your opponent grabbing outside the knee area. So we've remodeled our already-extended knee panel to progressively angle outward toward the knee - and we used Pearl Weave - so the result is a a much harder fabric for your opponents to maintain passing grips such as bull-fighter.
Leg Inseam Reinforcement
Inner leg grips are of course a big part of many passing styles, so we've also added a 2" wide strip along the pants' inseam to reinforce against unbreakable grips from a dangerous passer.
We've always wanted a work-around for the conventional knotted drawstring. But removing the knot and/or burning the ends of the string means that your string might get lost inside your waistband during laundry. So we've double-dipped our drawstring ends in a durable silicone, adding a splash of color while we're able to remove the old school knot and prevent losing your drawstring in the wash.
