'All Japan' - Aquamesh HANABISHI Super-Cool Kendogi

$75.00 $58.00
(You save $17.00)

Product Description


By far our top selling Kendogi during Japan's hot summer months, our deluxe AquaMesh summer Kendogi has been especially developed to be lightweight, comfortable, and most importantly, cool.

Now, to build on this success, we have taken our top selling AquaMesh Kendogi and improved it further, to bring you - AquaMesh HANABISHI.

Made using a specially developed modern fabric, which is lightweight and cool, AquaMesh HANABISHI features our original 'Hanabishi-Sashiko' weave, similar to a traditional cotton Kendogi, meaning you don't compromise your appearance. However, the combination of the lightweight, modern fabric, as well as the innovative pattern of the weave, wicks sweat away from your skin better than ever before, helping it evaporate quickly, meaning AquaMesh HANABISHI doesn't present the feeling of weighing you down as the intense practice progresses.

Better still, this special fabric we use to tailor Aquamesh HANABISHI is now closer than ever in appearance to that of a traditional Kendogi - and although dyed synthetically, is extremely close in colour and texture to a traditional 'Aizome' dyed Kendogi. Nor does it suffer from the 'shiny' or often 'metallic' type appearances that other synthetic Kendogi type Kendogi do.

Lastly, AquaMesh HANABISHI can be washed like any other regular item of clothing, with no need to worry about colours leaking, or the garment itself fading or shrinking! Hang it out, and it's dry in no time, meaning you can even use it for daily practice - with washes in-between!

*Always place inside a washing net or old pillowcase when washing in a washing machine.

  1. Awesome gi! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 19th 2017

    I have been practicing kendo for 14 years. I always dreaded wearing heavy cotton gi, even the ones that are supposed to absorb sweat. This gi is ultra light, comfortable and elegant. I strongly recommend it not only for summer, but for winter practice as well (in the US dojos are always well heated anyway!)

  2. Cool and comfortable 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 25th 2017

    This gi is lightweight, comfortable and keeps me cool even during long geiko. It also looks very nice.

  3. Very comfortable 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 8th 2017

    As advertised, very cool & comfortable. As mentioned previously the first time I wore it it was a bit static-y, but I've not had a problem with this since then (maybe washing it gets rid of that? Not sure).

    Only thing I'd note is that I found the sizing a bit difficult. I'm 170cm tall, & ordered the 3.0. However, I think I probably would have been better going for the 2.5, as it was a little too big.

    Overall very happy with this product.

  4. Pretty good gi for price and quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 2nd 2017

    As the previous review, this is a worthwhile investment. I am planning to get a 2nd one for myself.

  5. Great for Travel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 18th 2017

    Although I have a high quality kendo gi with the Meifu Shinkage-ryu embroidery on the arm and chest from Yamatobudogu (Deluxe Genuine Aizome Double Layered Kendogi), I was looking for a more lightweight version for when I travel to seminars and to Japan. My double layered Kendogi weighs about 2 kilos and is just too heavy.

    After looking around, I ended up purchasing the Hanabishi kendogi, and asked them to embroider as per direction. Not only did I get a very good price for the embroidery, it arrived very fast as well. The embroidery and delivery to my house only took 7 days, without having to pay extra for shipping. It is a fantastic product. It is a polyester blend that really looks like a regular kendogi, and it can be washed in the washing machine on 30 degrees. That is a bonus!!
