I have been practicing kendo for 14 years. I always dreaded wearing heavy cotton gi, even the ones that are supposed to absorb sweat. This gi is ultra light, comfortable and elegant. I strongly recommend it not only for summer, but for winter practice as well (in the US dojos are always well heated anyway!)

This gi is lightweight, comfortable and keeps me cool even during long geiko. It also looks very nice.

As advertised, very cool & comfortable. As mentioned previously the first time I wore it it was a bit static-y, but I've not had a problem with this since then (maybe washing it gets rid of that? Not sure).
Only thing I'd note is that I found the sizing a bit difficult. I'm 170cm tall, & ordered the 3.0. However, I think I probably would have been better going for the 2.5, as it was a little too big.
Overall very happy with this product.

As the previous review, this is a worthwhile investment. I am planning to get a 2nd one for myself.

Although I have a high quality kendo gi with the Meifu Shinkage-ryu embroidery on the arm and chest from Yamatobudogu (Deluxe Genuine Aizome Double Layered Kendogi), I was looking for a more lightweight version for when I travel to seminars and to Japan. My double layered Kendogi weighs about 2 kilos and is just too heavy.
After looking around, I ended up purchasing the Hanabishi kendogi, and asked them to embroider as per direction. Not only did I get a very good price for the embroidery, it arrived very fast as well. The embroidery and delivery to my house only took 7 days, without having to pay extra for shipping. It is a fantastic product. It is a polyester blend that really looks like a regular kendogi, and it can be washed in the washing machine on 30 degrees. That is a bonus!!
