      Try a tetron one if you want a "good" hakama that keeps its shape and easy to fold. Hakama is hmm like cars, if you have the money to buy a Ferrari, then of course you will buy one. But just like cars, your hakama is only a medium. Don't take my words for it though, buy whatever it is you fancy. Experience is your best teacher. good luck. ,

        My favorite

        If you want comfort, 100%cotton is best, but the pleats needs to be maintained.

        If you want ease of maintenance, I like the 100% polyester hakama (AH-500) from Tozando. It's actually an aiki-hakama made to withstand suwariwaza. I find that 100% polyester feels better/breath better than the 65%/35% polyblend.... I just asked them to switch from rubber koshiita to a stiffer koshiita and add the plastic thing to hold the koshiita...can't think of the term at the moment.

          Hakama folds

          I have the best quality hakama from tozando's. It's really nice and for the first time i asked my grandma to wash it (last week). It took her 3 days to get the wrinkels out and the folds back in. Then it took her 2 more days to get the indigo of her hands. I think she disowned me by now.

          But anyway, I like it a lot .

            What do you think of the 17 one in ninecircles? Is it good for the money and quality?

              The best hakama, I think, is the one can fly. You know, like the magic carpet. After you use it, you don't have to fold it, just tell it "good job, now go to the corner". If this didn't do, then please go to read all of the old posts from "Bogu section"

                  Im trying to make a decision its between the KH-1 and the KH-4 hakama from www.ninecircles.co.uk or the top quality tetron stitched hakama from e-bogu?

                  i dont know which to go for...

                    As you're in Glasglow, I would say stick with nine cirlces. I don't see the difference between the two hakama there, but as e-bogu is based in the US, I think that a tetron hakama is not worth the shipping fees.

                      Cool thanks, which of the KH-1 and the KH-4 do you think is better?

                        I have no idea. The only difference I can see is that one is listed as being Korean, while the other isn't.

                          see the 10,000 indigo hakama which is on that page too, do you think that'll be alot more harder to take care of?

                            The answer is simple, You get what you pay for.

                            I used to have a pair, of the 17 hakama. They are crap! you would be better with either the dearer pair from from 9 circles, or the e-bogu pair.

                              i dont understand why the other hakama is 34 when it just looks the same as the 17 one, also what do you think of the 10,000 indigo hakama from ninecircles?
