Jaco is doing some seriously awesome stuff in the fight world right now. They made their debut in August of 2009, on the UFC 102: Couture vs. Nogueira fight card, with the man Minotauro himself rocking their innovative shorts (Author’s note: Wasn’t Nog/Couture a sick fight?). When you’ve got a fighter, a LEGEND, like Big Nog wearing your shorts, you know you’ve done something right. In the few short years since their auspicious introduction, they’ve managed to assert themselves as a major player in the ultra-competitive field of fight shorts with their hugely popular “Resurgence” line. Little details, like a fly backing panel to keep the hook and loop closure from chafing you up, and locating the omnipresent internal mouthguard pocket at the bottom of the shorts so you can actually get to the darn thing without undoing your shorts, make these shorts an absolute pleasure to wear while training, rolling, sparring, and fighting. In addition to purpose-built fight shorts and vale tudo shorts, Jaco also offers a killer line of hybrid training gear that looks equally at home on the mats as it does under the bar at a Crossfit competition. They have pioneered the use of bamboo in clothing and apparel items. Yep, the stuff pandas eat. Bamboo actually sports some really nifty properties when used in clothing construction. Clothing made from bamboo is naturally moisture wicking, anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, and suuuuper soft to the touch. With all of these features, it’s a wonder why we don’t use more panda food in the textiles industry, and when you factor in the sustainability of the bamboo plant itself, it becomes difficult to justify NOT grabbing one of our huge selection of bamboo Jaco shirts! Not to gush over Jaco, but their Guardian Cup System is one of the best, most well thought out groin protection systems out there, just sayin’.
Here’s the tl;dr version- Get your Jaco stuff here at MMA Industries, because Jaco is awesome!
