Good, but with one irritating issue July 2, 2011
Reviewer: Garth Wallace from Berkeley, CA United States  
Very light and comfortable. Performs as advertised: wicks away sweat and dries quickly. Although the clerk at the Tozando store in Kyoto advised that it is not as durable as a judo single-weave, so far it has held up well to Tomiki style Aikido.

There is one problem that could be a dealbreaker: it refuses to stay closed, no matter how tightly you tie your belt. The constant "wardrobe malfunctions" are annoying, and I end up having to re-tie my gi often. Although I normally prefer a judo-style gi without himo for aikido practice, this could probably use himo.

this gi is amazing June 12, 2008
Reviewer: timothy durkin from dallas, texas United States  
I train in hot Texas and this gi is simply amazing.  It wicks away moisture and then holds it in the fabric and cools you down.  It is light and soft yet very sturdy.
I no longer have to wear cool max of under armour or dri fit to try and stay cool this gi does it all.  Simply amazing.

waffle aikido gi April 7, 2008
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Las Vegas, Nevada United States  
This is by far the best gi I have ever had.
I live in Las Vegas, NV United States it gets very hot here and this gi is perfect for hot weather.  The material provides excellent air circulation and wicks the moisture away from your body.  I was also very surprised at how soft and flexible the material is.  Feels very good against the skin not rough or scratchy like some gi's can be.  This Gi is top quality as all Tozando products are.

Very Impressive January 9, 2008
Reviewer: ND from Missoula, Montana United States  
After starting Aikido in the 100+ F summer, I was overheating and drenched in sweat every class; previously, I always wore high-performance fabrics like CoolMax when exercising.

Compared to my old cotton gi, the weave is wider and seems thinner, and I do notice being significantly more cool.  The fabric is able to soak through much easier than a standard gi, which allows your sweat to evaporate and cool you down.

I do wear a compression CoolMax shirt underneath it as I've found that also helps, but I think this gi is really quite ideal for Aikido.  Even though my CoolMax shirt underneath is dark gray, the weave isn't so loose that it's visible through the gi.

My only complaint is this is a Judo rather than Aikido gi, the difference being Judo gis lack the ties at the base for keeping the front of the gi closed better.  I had some added on, but it's something to keep in mind if you don't want your gi falling open.  Because of this, I'm rating it at 4 stars.
