Top level model with a thick material utilizing our specially designed thread
The HAYATE NF-1 Karate Kata Gi is part of Mitsuboshi's flagship "Neo-Fabric" series. The concept is to create the ultimate heavy-weight fabric for powerful kata whilst also being comfortable to wear, move in and maintain. Made from a double-layered poly-cotton blend the NF-1 possesses a distinct and deep "oto-nari", perfect for explosive kata.
Though being thick material, by including 30% polyester, we have achieved lightness and quick drying. By wrapping polyester with cotton, it gives a nice a soft feel along with strength and breathability. It is also resistant to shrinking. The material has undergone HA processing, giving it an original and strong sound. Because of the bilayer thread with cotton-wrapped polyester, it is also resistant to wrinkling.
Heavy-weight Karate gi can sometimes feel cumbersome, but the NF-1 takes advantage of Mitsuboshi's innovative HA Tratement - this hardens and reinforces the fabric, but retains its soft texture. You can enjoy the dignified form and powerful snap of a heavyweight fabric without feeling burdened or held back.
The NF-1 is part of Mitsuboshi's flagship HAYATE series, next-generation Karate gi designed to provide the best performance possible. Mitsuboshi has 65 years of experience at the forefront of martial arts equipment making and spent considerable effort alongside experienced karateka to launch these karate uniforms.
The NF-1 is made in Mitsuboshi's workshop in Iwate, Japan. Relax Fit and Slim Fit are also available.It can be customized to your specifications if desired.
