Fuji Spats Review

Fuji Sports is one of the most popular and longstanding Brazilian jiu jitsu and martial arts apparel manufacturers out there. They are know for their minimal designs and high quality gear, but how do their spats rank in terms of durability and quality?

Our opinion: Fuji Baseline Spats are our top recommended spats for BJJ. They are simple, durable, and fit great – all at an affordable price point.

Main Takeaway

+ Pros / – Cons
+Flattering fit
+Comfortable material (88% Poly, 12% Spandex)
+Drawstring waistband
+ Good sizing
+Affordable price

My personal experience: While I’ve tried out a bunch of different spats, generally, the ones that cost more usually equal better quality. However, these Fuji spats are about midrange in terms of price, and I’d consider them very comparable to more expensive spats like those from Hayabusa and Venum. They just fit great (I’m 6’/200 lbs and bought Size: L) and stayed in place thanks to drawstring waistband.

Why You May Not Like Fuji Spats

Some of the main reasons why you might not want to buy a spats from Fuji are:

  • If you wants spats with flashier designs
  • If you want to buy a cheaper pair (like those from Sanabul or Elite)

Most spats in a similar price range are all pretty similar in terms of quality so, ultimately, it may come down to whether or you prefer the way they fit and their design.

I feel like Fuji spats are definitely a better buy than other spats in their price range like those from XMartial, Gold BJJ, or Raven.

However, if you want to try out a more expensive pair of spats, I’d recommend going with Hayabusa spats, but, unfortunately, you will have to pay a bit more.

Vs Sanabul Spats

What does Sanabul have that Fuji does not?:

  • More affordable spats
  • However, they lack the better fit that and higher quality material that Fuji has has (as you can see in the images above – Sanabul spats tend to run a bit short)

Overall Takeaway: You may want to go with Sanabul if you just want an affordable pair of spats. At less than half the price of Fuji spats, you may want to consider Sanabul if you want a cheaper pair but don’t expect the quality and fit be the same as with Fuji.

Vs Hayabusa Spats

What does Hayabusa have that Fuji does not?:

  • Rubber ankle liners
  • Reinforced rubber waistband liner
  • They feel like spandex mixed with leather (extremely durable and sweat-wicking)

Overall Takeaway: If I’m being honest Hayabasu spats are a slight upgrade when compared to Fuji, but they are honestly pretty comparable (except Fuji spats are more affordable).

Is Fuji a Good Brand?

Yes, Fuji is a pretty good brand. They’ve been in the martial arts apparel business since 1969, and I’m pretty sure my first ever BJJ gi was from Fuji.

I can’t really say anything bad about their gear or brand. They just make high quality, simple gear that lasts. Their gi and rash guards are still sometimes in my weekly training rotation.

Over the last six years, I’ve gone through phases when I prefer to wear spats (usually in the colder months), and these Fuji spats are still my top pick to this day.
