Submission FC Aura
Great product for the price
A little bit "too" fit
No ripstop option
Submission FC is on a roll and it’s releasing a lot of new products by the end of the year. We are going to do a quick review of the Submission FC Aura Pants.
It’s unusual for someone to just buy a pair of pants, however the pants are most likely to rip than the jacket so selling pants separately makes sense. I also prefer rolling no gi with pants, so having an extra pair does come in handy.
The Aura is a good offer and if you’re looking for a new pair of pants you should check it out.
Submission FC Aura
– White with Navy Blue Contrast Stitching

I got three strong impressions when I first got the pants:
It’s soft. I’m a fan of ripstop for the pants, however the cotton blend, found with Submission FC, is really nice and comfortable.
It’s really fit. I usually wear size A1 pants and they were super fit on me specially on my thighs.
It’s very light. Cotton pants are usually heavy, however this one is as light as a ripstop. The fabric is thinner than regular cotton pants.
What I really liked about the Submission FC Aura is the area where I wanted to see changes, I’ll explain: The stitching on the pants is great and super reinforced. I really mean when I say super. The junction between the fabric is triple stitched and reinforced with an extra layer of fabric that also has three rows of stitches. I don’t remember seeing this on any other pants; but the gusset area (where I usually see rips) is not reinforced. Ok, most of the pants on the market don’t have that reinforcement, however that would make these pants close to indestructible and unrippable (just made that word up).
The knee reinforcement area is really nice and it’s long enough to cover your knees even when you’re squatting.
The rope drawstring is my favorite kind but this one is not stretchable like some others (not a big deal) and the five loops are great.
I also want to mention the excellent embroidery on the side of the pants and the “aura” patch which is not only very well manufactured but also harder than other less expensive patches.
I have to be honest when I saw the price tag of $55 for the pants I was a little scared about it. However, when I researched it a little, I noticed inferior quality pants are sold for roughly $30 – $35. These don’t have reinforcements, 5 loops, or the rope drawstring and on top of all that they are ugly.
So, if you’re looking to get just a pair of pants, I believe that the Submission FC Aura is a great offer. You will be getting a good looking pair of pants that will last you a very long time. I do strongly suggest that you check their website for the size chart, and if you’re in doubt (or in between sizes) get a size bigger. Since, the Aura is pre-shrunk and has a fit cut.
The Submission FC Aura pants are available at Submission FC website.
