    Hi,
    I have to buy a new judogi.
    I want a gi that has a slim fit, and is good for judo and jujitsu trainings.

    What you suggest?
    I have seen adidas judogi j930 slim but it is much expensive. I would spend less than 200euro.
    I see mizuno judogi but I have never had it...what do you think about it?

    Thanks for the suggestions

    In my own experience, you can't go wrong with either Mizuno or Green Hill. You just need to find the right model for what you want to do.
    Both are excellent gi brands.

    I really believe you get what you pay for when buying judogi. I only buy double weave and weight as close to 1050 g/m2 as I can find.

    If you have long limbs, I would suggest the following:

    Adias Champion
    Fushida Icon
    Judoka privilege

    If you have shorter limbs, I would suggest

    Mizuno

    I have two Mizuno Keiko gi's - One white, one blue.

    Good quality, little shrinkage, comfortable fit.  No issue at all with them.

    Had one, waaay to thin for me. But then again, I just started doing judo back then so I had no idea what gi models are like and what fits me.

    I don't find the jacket on the Mizuno Keiko overly long.

    For what it is worth, I tried on the same size in a Mizuno Yusho cut on the weekend and found it longer in the sleeves and skirt (than the same size in the Mizuno Keiko).

    I have 2 Mizuno Keiko Gi, 1 x size 6 and 1 x size 5.5.
    I had the trousers adjusted by my tailor as they were too long for me, only cost AUS$15.00 each pair.
    There has been no shrinkage in either jacket, both of which are a very good fit for me
    as I am 178cms and +125kgs..
    Sleeves are not overly tight, nor are they too loose, Keiko Gi are (IMHO) very good
    for both training and Competition, there are reasonably warm in Winter, yet still comfortable in Summer.
    I have had them for almost 5 years or so and believe they were well worth the AUS$195.00 each that I paid.

    The Mizuno Kekiko's are currently listed at AUD 149.95/169.95 at Grappling Store.  

    On Sunday at the Victorian State Championship, Grappling Store had a stall where they were selling Mizuno Shiai, Yusho and Yawara gi's with deep discounts (Shiai reduced from 269.95 to 120.00, Yawara from 499.95 to 350, etc) ahead of new stock and styles becoming available in the new year.  

    As such, if you are interested in getting a new Mizuno gi, now might be a good time to negotiate a discount ...

    Those 2 Keiko that I bought at $195.00 each were among the first imported into Australia when they were released,
    and the Blue and White Shiai that I bought a week later cost me $297.00 each and were the first 2 Shiai Gi into the Country,
    now if you can find me a size 5.5 Eurocomp unused still in the bag for around $120.00- $150.00 I might just be interested.

    Where in the world are you? This might influence the advice that you're given.

    Toraki personal gold is a good kit, you fill in a measurement chart and they select from a large range of trousers and jackets to get the best fit for you. The current price is 125 euros plus tax/delivery

    The trousers are great if you're on the slim side, strongly made, narrower legs than even slim fit kits from other brands, and they stay up. The jackets are heavy and stiff although they do soften up when they warm through.

    My judo player has long arms (150cm wrist to wrist) and struggles to find kits that are competition legal, especially once they start shrinking down. The toraki ones are too long straight out of the bag, but wash down - his original one which is nearly two years old and washed weekly is still fine in the sleeves

    I'd add a second recommendation for the Toraki. Where in the world are you?
    You might also want ot check out the Blitz Shuurai Pro as its on sale at the moment
    http://www.blitzsport.com/Adult-Shuurai-Pro-Judoka-Judo-Suit?sc=8&category=80840
    Only £75.00
    The Shuurai lite is also reduced in price £49.99
    http://www.blitzsport.com/Adult-Shuurai-Lite-Judo-Suit?sc=8&category=80840
    Its not super heavy, more like a medium heavy double at 750gm but still a nice peice of kit for the money

    Re sizing, I can't help you there as i'm a lot taller than you. Check out the sizing charts on the Blitz website and give them a call and ask for advice re washing and shrinkage
    Good luck and let us know what you get

    I'm 1.83m / 92 kg and i can tell you that the Matsuru IJF Mondial slim fit, fits me like a gloove. It's 950 gr/m2 and only costs 125 euros. It's a very good judogi...
