Yamato Budogu Gi
 
Have anyone tried their aikido summer gi Ryo? Any feedbacks would be much appreciated. I'm tempted to try it out.

I'm pleased to say, the gi met ALL my expectations, and it's worth the $$$.. I have been waiting a lifetime for an Engineered Fabric Gi..

I usually wear a dry-fit shirt under my gi, it regulates my body temp, and also stops all the sweat and dead skin from stinking up my gi.. The problem is, on a hot humid summer day, in a hot dojo (so hot and humid people slip on the wet mats) cotton gis get drenched and get suffocating..

Now a dry-fit shirt AND the Ryo gi is a hi-tech wonder.. It feels like you're wearing air, despite sweating like crazy.. The Ryo gi out of the washing machine HARDLY needs drying.. It's ready to wear within 2 hours of air drying.. The gi feels like a thin single layer judo/aikido gi.. I've used 60% polyester/40% cotton twill karate gis for travelling seminars (these are lighter, and don't get drenched), but I often get gashes from shoulder grabs coz the karate twill gis are thin.. These Ryo gis are the PERFECT weight, and dry in no time.. I hope they last, I've only had it for 2 weeks..

I will defintely buy these again.. The only nitpick is, the care instructions are in JAPANESE, so I need translation for that.. The gi is Made in Japan, not some lower wage country..
