    Its getting hotter out there and I'm looking for decently price light weaved Gi's.

    I currently own 2 Atama Summer Gi's but they dont make those anymore instead now selling a Ultra Lite which sounds like the exact same but for $50 more...

    Fuji Summer Gi's seem to be the most affordable from research though I've never heard of them.

    Any suggestions/recommendations?

    Atama Summer is made of completely different material than Atama Ultra-Lite: Summer is made of canvas while Ultra-Lite is made of regular gi material except lighter than a single weave

    Yes, Vulkan is really lighter than most gi's on the market. For example, we weighted some gi's and...

    VULKAN A2 - 1560 grams or 3.439 lb
    KORAL A2 - 1920 grams or 4.233 lb
    ATAMA A2 - 1990 grams or 4.387 lb
    WAR A2 - 2300 grams or 5.071 lb
    DRAGAO A2 - 1950 grams or 4.299 lb

    I agree about the Koral. I have a Classic (same weight as MKM) and it's just as light as my Ouano.

    Naja Extreme has one of the lightest weight gi's on the market today. Beautiful Gi. Soft and durable. Pre-shrunk (about 80%). Great cut, fit and styling.

    To keep it in perspective with previous posts: A2 = 1485 Grams

    Hope this helps.

    Take care,

    Thanks for the great information on the weights and breathability. Has anyone encountered any issues of being torn easily on any of the gis?
