If you read this site, you probably have good taste in clothes, and fork over a decent amount of your hard earned cash for quality threads. I invest in my clothes too.
Your clothes deserve to be taken care of, dare I say loved (bit of a reach on that one).
White marks are a pain. Get the wrong deodorant, apply a thick oily suncream, and you’re potentially done some damage. Either temporarily to your look for the day, or more permanently in the form of clothing stains.
Take care with products your use.
An example of an oily product is the Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream. It goes on heavy and can stain clothes.
High factor sun creams usually leave white marks too. Make sure to rub it in well, and towel yourself off before throwing back on your clothes.
Some roll on deodorants are notorious for marking clothes to, sometimes even leaching through your shirt armpit fabric and leaving a nasty creamy looking stain. Not attractive! Look for natural deodorants that specifically state that they don’t leave white marks.
Calling all Jiu Jitsu fans!
Onnit recently released their new 100% bamboo jiu jitsu gis. There are two options available, the Primal Gi in Blue/Yellow shown above in the image and the Master Lucky Gi White/Red.
Some features they mention:
- High quality construction. (I should hope so for the price! These gis aren’t the cheapest)
- Stronger, softer, extra lightweight.
- Absorbs sweat and deodorizes.
- Warm in the winter, cool in the summer.
The gis are not produced by Onnit, but Lucky Gis. It’s a partnership between the two companies. Here’s Lucky Gis website if you’d like to learn more about them: http://myluckygi.com/about-us/
I mentioned in my last post Onnit have other awesome clothing in store, tshirts, caps, tank tops. It’s worth checking out their store.
Also, if you’re interested in jiu jistsu gis, you’re probably athletic and into health, fitness, and want to roll as best you can. You know as well as me having great gear is part of the forumla for great all round performance. Nutrition is another one. If you’re eating clean, trying to optimise your health, then supplementation might be the next step for plugging any nutritional loop holes and really taking your game to the next level.
Onnit of course produce a range of top quality supplements, for sport we highly recommend Shroom Tech, and their flagship cognitive enhancer, Alpha Brain. It works by opening up new neural pathways in your brain, allowing it to function more sharply, clearing brain fog, and keeping you focused.
Just like the gis are made from 100% natural material. Their supplements are made from 100% natural, earth-grown ingredients.

Onnit are famous for their supplements, with earth grown ingredients—like their flagship nootropic, Alpha Brain—hemp force protein, as well as their functional training equipment; kettlebells, battle ropes, steel maces et at.
On top of that they have some pretty cool swag. Tshirts, tank tops, cross training shorts, kettlebell wrist protectors, to name a few.
I love several of the primal designs, and the fact that their gear is made from a mix of organic cotton and bamboo—pretty slick.
I’m a big Patagonia fan too, and many of their tees are from organic cotton. I feel the difference, and I like knowing I’m supporting something organic.
Check out Onnit’s gear over at their website, Onnit.com.
And if you’re interested in their cognitive enhancer, Alpha Brain, you might find this useful http://brainperformancereviews.com. It’s a good, seemingly unbiased, review of the supplement, with info on the best places to buy.
