Help picking between 2 gis

I need help, I just can't take the heat of the double weave as it warms up in Florida. I am going to try a 1.5 weave. But I cant decide between this toraki gi or this fushida gi Fushida Tournament Intermediate 1.5 (one and a half) weave judo uniform for competitive judokas after taxes and shipping they end up the same price so does anyone have experience to compare both of these gis?

Then, you'd be ready to rock!

Depends which one I can slip into the easiest and quickest. How tight the fit is also is important. And not to mention...oh...whoops...thought the title said "girls"...

It depends on your build. I have a couple friends that have the Fushida tournament and it is very well constructed. It is pretty slim cut compared to other judogi's of the same weight. I've only seen the Toraki single weave, which was somewhat big but also well made. I've been in contact with both companies throughout the years and both have excellent customer service. If you contact them they will get you the best fitting uniform for you.

Side note, I'm more than likely buying a Fushida soon. I'm 6' 170 and going with a 4.5 if that helps in sizing at all.

I wear a Fushida Icon V2. I'd say it is about a 1.5 weave and pretty light, still gets pretty warm and I sweat alot but I'm used to it. Can't tell you anything about their tournament models.

The Icon is a heavy double weave at 900+gsm. Though it's surely a good sign that it doesn't feel like it!

I have a Fushida tournament and a Toraki model. The Fushida is a stiffer gi, keeps its shape well, and doesn't shift too much during practice. The Toraki I have is well-made, but shrunk more in the dryer and feels softer. How tall are you? I'm 5'5" just about, and the Toraki fits me a little strangely in the torso -- the skirt starts before my natural waistline.
