FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are Kauai Kimonos strong enough to hold up to jiu-jitsu?
Yes. Mat tested and proven since 2008. Our ripstop material won't rip, and if it does.. it stops.
Do the Gi's shrink?
Kauai Kimonos are not meant to shrink to fit. We suggest going with your natural size based on our size charts.
If you are in-between sizes, please check our new Hapa "L" and Bombucha "X" sizes - best suited for long/lanky and short/stalky jiu jitsu athletes.
What size Kauai Kimono should I get?
What size Gi do you normally wear? Do you normally shrink your Gi's to fit? Ask yourself these questions first.
Kauai Kimonos are pre-shrunk and feature natural tapered lines, so go with your natural size, not a size up. View our size charts for more information.
How do I care for my Gi?
Cold wash. Hang Dry. Brush Yo Teeth.
Are Kauai Kimonos competition legal?
Yes - NAGA, Grapplers Quest, DREAM Jiu-Jitsu, FIVE Grappling, and many others.
No - IBJJF does not allow the use of our ripstop jacket (but the ripstop pants are fine).
Please check with tournament organizers beforehand. Smile plenty, throw one shaka, and be polite. Good luck.

We ship orders within 1-2 business days after receiving your order using USPS Priority Mail.
What happens if I did not receive my package?
Please contact us immediately and we will investigate your case accordingly.
Why does my tracking number not have any information for my package yet?
Either your package is in transit or it hasn't been scanned by the next receiving post office in the chain. Do not panic. Please double check the tracking number we sent you and try again - and/or - please allow an additional day (or two) for everything to register in the online postal system.
International customers: Please note tracking is rarely updated once packages leave the US due to the fact that international post services simply do not take the extra time to update/scan all tracking numbers for incoming mail. This is not a limitation of our services, but a reality of how the world works. Door to door tracking for international shipments is only available with private courier (i.e. FedEx, DHL) by specific request.
