    Anyone wear these? I'm in the market for a sturdy, but lightweight Gi. I was looking at the Fuji Suparaito as a guy I train with was wearing one last week and it seemed very nice, but I don't like the color scheme for the blue version, and I will probably buy more than one.

    GiReviews.net has them as one of their top summer weight gis, but I would love some first hand experience if anyone has it.

    Looks like a cool gi. No pun intended. I'll be on the lookout for them at my gym.

    I have two 450 g pearl weave kimonos. One Moyà Brand and the other Vandal. The Moyà is blue and is the one I've had for awhile. It has twill pants. I thought the 450 g was heavy for the longest time but came to appreciate the durability and how much is helps absorb my sweat. I'm one of those guys who sweats buckets. I train at a UFC gym now and corporate started pushing for people to wear UFC branded kimonos. I was rather annoyed having to drop the money on a second kimono and got a black Vandal that is also 450 g pearl weave but the pants are rip stop. The pants are sooo much more comfortable than twill ones. My point is I think the lighter gis are great in theory but as a big guy (6' 1" 200 lbs) I appreciate a stronger material that will get pulled on and run through a washer hundreds of times.

    Yeah it's pretty crap. Apparently they were supposed to be doing it for awhile but corporate kept crying. I keep the positive - I was looking at getting another gi anyways. My blue Moya can be my travel gi/I can go back to it when I move again in 3 yrs.

    It does stink, particularly in your case of already having several Gi's. Gracie Barra does the same, and their Gi's are not cheap either.
