SHORT OVERALL REVIEW

The hakama is a special cotton hakama with inner layer fabric using technomesh to give it light weight, sweat absorption and quick drying. It has slightly lower density compared to full cotton making it slightly softer. Aisome suppresses the smell of sweat with its anti-bacterial effect. 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. Hence, this hakama would be suitable not only for daily practice, but even during grading, competition, and Degeiko. This hakama is good balance between full cotton hakama and tettron hakama. Its price is great for kendoka that wishes to start using cotton hakama. It functions well for kendoka that practice long hours, sweat a lot, and practice in hot climate, temperature or condition.
