I bought this Kendogi intended as an upgrade from the renown Hanbishi Kendogi. Compared to it BlueJay has a nice fabrique which almost feels like a cotton gi due to the weave structure. However, at the same time it's VERY thin, so that if held against the light you can see through it. Something the Hanabishi definitely does better.
In terms of the actual feel on the skin the Hanabishi Kendogi is once again better as it feels more natural. Maybe it's just personal preference but I'd never train with BlueJay in average heated gyms. The fabrique is just too thin to keep me warm, but in very hot regions this might be an advantage.
Verdict: Thicker Hanabishi for practice throughout the seasons and BlueJay for very hot climates or gyms
