Limited time offer until the 31st of August 2017

Light, easy to use and optimized for training,
these are the concepts that the legendary A-1 Series Bogu were built upon. As a collaboration between Tozando and Kanagawa Hakkodo, the A-1 concept was further refined and the new A-1 α Bogu was born.

Using the most popular options from the A-1 series, such as 'Diagonal Cut Mendare' to make the Men as light as possible with a distinct silhouette and a Mengane which has been painted gray inside to widen your field of view by preventing unwanted light reflections on the inside of the Men.
The throat is protected by the detachable IBB Safety Guard, which will protect you against even the harshest Tsuki, making it more safe than ever to do high level Kendo.

The Kote are light and nicely padded, made in Orizashi Cotton to make them soft and comfortable to wear. The Do also features a unique A-1 Alpha Mune Kazari pattern.
and the Tare features 'Diagonal Cut Oodare' to make the Tare as light as possible and Nanamezashi on both the left and right Oodare to make them more flexible and easy to form. In addition to this we have made the Hara-obi slimmer making it more comfortable to wear and easier to move in. The Tare-himo is also made slimmer towards the tip, making it easier to tie.

The A-1 α Bogu uses a new type of padding that has been developed using the joint knowledge of Tozando and Kanagawa Hakkodo to make even softer and better fitting Men, Kote and Tare.

Very satisfied June 28, 2017
Reviewer: from United States  
The Bogu looks great and it appears to be very durable. It is pretty protective, lightweight, and is really great for the price.

I like the short mendare, and the diagonal stitching adds to the ease of breaking them in correctly.

The kote are high quality and I like the all-orizashi construction. The micropunch palms grip nicely and provide a bit of extra ventilation; my hands don't get terribly sweaty wearing the kote.

Fit was great out of the box, and has gotten better with a bit of break-in. My only concern is that the standard do is fairly small, so check the recommended waist measurement carefully to make sure you don't need to step up a size.

The dye hasn't bled much either (except for the tare, which makes everything blue).
I'm very satisfied with this bogu!
