When choosing kote, you need to consider shock absorption, fit, and deodorization

A kote with a high shock absorption factor will absorb the impact from a strike and protect you from avoidable injury. A major element that contributes to the shock absorption capacity is the stitching of the futon, and the intervals between stitches. If the stitch width is narrow, the core material becomes compressed, the futon itself will be thinner, and the shock absorption will be reduced. On the other hand, if the stitch interval is wider, the thickness and shock absorption capacity is retained.

The fit of your kote is an important factor to ensure your technique is correct. A futon made with a fit-stitch is recommended for beginners, as the structure is softer and fits better than a regular futon. A fit-stitch increases shock absorption. Since kote also absorbs sweat well, it can soon develop an odour when you use it. For those who are concerned about smell, you can select washable, as well as anti-bacterial and anti-odor kote.
