SHORT OVERALL REVIEW
The hakama is a polyester NANO MAGIC hakama using Switorl-C to give it light weight, good sweat absorption and quick drying. Usual polyester hakama tend to have bad sweat absoption, color and texture. Switorl-C enables the design of polyester hakama that is closer to cotton with its color and texture. In Japan, cotton keikogi and hakama is expected to be use during even such as competition, practicing outside (degeiko) and grading. It is said, wearing a nice cotton keikogi and hakama is a sign of respect towards the opponent, and a sign of good grooming. In this case, this hakama would be suitable for daily practice, and its is good especially for beginner and kendoka looking for a secondary hakama. It is far more durable against wear & tear and also heat. It functions well for kendoka that sweat a lot and practice in hot climate, temperature or condition.
