Re: gi or no gi?

I wear a medium weight Aikido gi from Bu Jin. It's a lot cooler than my very heavy woven judo gi, but still designed to hold up to Aikido, including double thickness at the knees, and CoolMax-lined shoulder area. The weight of the fabric feels kind of like a very solid lab coat - smooth, crisp, but not flimsy, so it doesn't cling when you get sweaty.
