Gekiha kote is very light and comfort , and also good quality for durability than I thought. This kote is good for shiai also. I can't tell it better than handmade kote, but it is best kote for any other machine stich. I recommend this kote for when you need good grip and light weight looking for.

Very well made, this pair of Kote is actually comfortable and extremely lightweight. Moreover, the fit to my hands is almost perfect so it seems that you are not wearing the Kote, but they provide great protection against strikes. Aizome dye of first class and beautiful design and lining.
