The Michi model is a light weight, easy to use Kote with great durability and impact absorption, at a very competitive price! By using a new type of padding, we have been able to produce a extremely lightweight, yet thicker and more protective type of Futon for this Kote.
Thanks to the carefully prepared materials and the skills of our craftsmen, we have constructed this Kote so that the Kote Himo will not shift and open up the Kote unnecessary with time, which is a very common problem.
This Kote also provides great protection from hits, we have also designed the right-hand Kote so that the Futon is 20% thicker to protect the hit zone, and the left-hand Kote so that it's slightly thinner to make it easier to move with.
This Kote also features our Oji-cut wrist, providing a much more natural angle for the wrist when wearing the Kote.
We have also designed the Kote-atama so that it will be easier to grip your Shinai, thanks to the natural grip shape.
Orizashi cotton also dries Kote very fast and is very easy to maintain, so it's a prefect choice for your everyday training and highly recommended for any Kendoka! Experience the unbelievable performance for this price range!

1 of 5 Not durable at all May 22, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Michigan United States  
I have used Kote Michi for less than Six months, one practice a week(started at DT seminar on mid February).  To this date(Mid August)the total usage is equivalent approx to 54 hours and the synthetic palm material already shows wear In both Kote and they also have some threads are loose here and there. Unfortunately for me, I bought a two pair set(Michi and Tora) for $245  just to recently discover that now they are down to $90 each and that you can even get them as Free Gift. That makes me think that they indeed have quality problems.
I imagine that if you use this poor quality Item  for two or three practices a week they wont last you a year.
Still, if you only need them for a season I guess they will do, they are indeed flexible but that comes at the expense of protection, so be sure of buy a wrist protector.
It Is hard for me to understand how a cheap deer palm set i got from the extint Kendoshop 12 years ago, as stinky and hardened as they are, show no sign of quitting.
