Is it only me, or do Lafroi Rash Guards pop up everywhere? Wherever I went – USA, Germany, and Uganda, I saw many people rocking the Lafroi Rash Guard.
I needed a new one anyway, so I thought, you know what – I’m gonna try it out. So, I purchased one through Amazon to see what they are all about.
After 3 months of wearing them, I know this Rash Guard in and out, and I will give you all the information you need to know in this post.
The Lafroi Rash Guard Review
So, on the right, you can see me wearing my Lafroi Rash Guard for the first time.
I was so excited I had to take a picture. I immediately fell in love with the design when I was wearing it.
The material felt a bit like plastic, but you cannot get everything for that price. I was surprised at how durable it was then during training.
And I frequently machine wash this Rash Guard without problems.
The only thing is that I usually size up in Rash Guards, which worked for me with all the others. But the Lafroi Rash Guard is loose, so I didn’t like it when I wore it in XL. So I had to send it back and get an L size.
So when you buy, make sure to buy it in your regular size or, if in doubt, size down rather than up.
The Lafroi Rash Guard is the most affordable Rash Guard I have bought (23 USD). Rash Guards are usually more expensive, and it’s refreshing to see a Rash Guard that offers so many different Designs for such little money.
So, if you’re starting out and/or on a tight budget, I’d try this one.
This is my favorite part about my Lafroi Rash Guard. When I was looking at the designs on Amazon, I wondered whether they also look good when you wear them. And they do.
I was pleasantly surprised. They have 22 designs available on Amazon in all kinds of colors and designs.
Whether you want a more flashy design like me or one that indicates your belt rank – I’m sure you’ll find one you like.
Material & Quality
The Quality is surprisingly good. For the price, I didn’t expect them to hold up for long as they do. I washed them about 20-30 times now, and they still look good. It didn’t rip or anything.
The only thing is that the Lafroi branding on the left arm starts to peel off. I can imagine it’ll be gone in a few months. The design on the other arm looks new, though!
The material does feel a bit cheap. My first impression was that it was mostly made of Polyester – it had a plastic feel. But you get used to it.
It’s still super durable, light, and breathable. So also here, for the price, the Quality is good.
Here, you have to be careful. The Lafroi Rash Guards tend to be big. I usually sized one up and did the same here – The result was that it was too loose, and I had to send it back.
I like my tight BJJ Rash Guards, so I don’t have to adjust them during practice. So when I ordered it again, it had a perfect fit.
So go for your usual size, or if you doubt, size down rather than up.
Jiu Jitsu Rash Guards can be sensitive. Many recommend washing them by hand. I’m too lazy, though…
So I washed this one with my other Rash Guards, and it seems fine. It doesn’t seem to suffer from it.
I hang dry my Rash Guards, though, and I find that this one dries quicker than the others because of its light material.
This Rash Guard is comfortable. It lets me breathe during practice, and it feels very light and not suffocating.
It does soak up the sweat well. I own other Rash Guards like the Hayabusa Rash Guard to do a better job at that, but still, for this price, it’s impressive.
The only thing is that I find myself adjusting this Lafroi Rash Guard during practice. It often falls out of place on the waist and around my wrist.
Other Rash Guards have a waist and wristband to prevent that, but they also come at a higher price.
Alternatives To Lafroi Rash Guards
If you read my review and decide not to go along with the Lafroi Rash Guard, there are some alternatives out there. If you want to find a Rash Guard within the same Price range, check out the RDX Rash Guards – they don’t have rather boring designs, but I find their quality better.
If you are looking for something of higher quality, check out the Hayabusa Fusion Rash Guards. Hands down the best Rash Guard I have ever come across.
You can find all the alternatives to Lafroi in my Guide on the best Rash Guards on the market.
All in all, I’d recommend this BJJ Rash Guard. Are there better ones? Sure. But they are also more expensive.
If you’re looking for nice designs for an affordable price, go for that one. For approx. 20 USD, you cannot complain.
I haven’t had big issues with them yet and will keep wearing mine.
So, if you want, you can purchase yours here.
