Yamato Budogu Gi

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

Re: Yamato Budogu Gi

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..
