Top 10 Best Jiu Jitsu Rashguards

The rashguard was originally invented as an undershirt for surfers to help protect them both from the cold of the water and skin abrasions. It was such an ingenious creation that it did not take long for other sports to adopt rashguards and make them their own. Martial arts (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in particular) adopted this protective garment because it is great to protect against mat burns, bacterial skin infections and to keep your muscles warm while you’re inactive and waiting to compete. So, now today there are thousands of available rashguards all with their own benefits and here is a brief list of the top 10 on the market.

1) The Hayabusa Rashguard:

Hayabusa Rashguard
The pinnacle of rashguard technology and design is the Hayabusa Haburi rashguard, which is described by some as the granddaddy of them all. It has innovative antimicrobial properties, sophisticated thermoregulation abilities that keep you warm as well as dry, and it has been designed for the ultimate comfort levels. This rashguard is not flashy but it has the substance and quality to just be the best rashguard on the market.

2) The Manto Digital Camo Rashguard:

With a high level of design quality the Manto Digital Camo Rashguard is up there with the very best on the market. The cool point about this particular piece of uniform is its attractive camo design, which really helps you stand out on the mats. This design has been sublimated into the fabric meaning it will not fade or crack, keeping it as vibrant as the day you bought it. Manto really started the trend of clever designs on rashguards.

3) Sprawl Loose Fit Rashguard:

Sprawl Loose Fits Rashguard
Not everyone likes the skin-tight feel associated with most rashguards so this is why Sprawl created the Loose Fit Rashguard. It boasts pretty much the same kind of benefits that other rashguards do, but it fits more loosely for those who may not have a chiseled physique to show off. This top feels more like a long-sleeve T-shirt and the only drawback is the looser material, which can be grabbed during grapples.

4) BJJ Life Tuxedo Rashguard:
