SOURYU is made from premium Japanese materials, including top-grade Bushu Sei-Aizome dyed fabric, which is famous in the Kendogu industry from producing the most beautiful Indigo colour. All stitching on SOURYU is done using the 'Pitch-Zashi' style - which is a method popular in Japan, featuring longer than usual stitches, which allow for more flexibility, and better cushioning. This makes SOURYU extremely comfortable, whilst also being very protective. Orizashi fabric (woven cotton) is used to reinforce the Futon, making SOURYU lightweight, flexible, and quick drying.
The Men is stitched using 'Gunome-zashi' to give optimum durability and shaping, and further, is finished with Fukuro-nui, for a neat appearance. A light weight, IBB Dura Mengane (protective cage) is used, which features reinforced in the strike zones, for extra durability. The Uchiwa (face padding) is made using antibacterial fiber, for increased hygiene and fast drying.
The Kote are feature a Yakko reinforcement at the fists, increasing durability where the Kote make contact with those of the opponent. The wrist joint is made using an original cut, which is extremely flexible, whilst also being very durable. The palms are made using toughened synthetic leather.
A 50pc type toughened synthetic black Do-dai (body protector) comes as standard, and a Kurozan Mune, with your choice of design.
A comfortable, flexible, protective Tare is included, featuring 5 decorative lines of Kazari (decorative rope stitching), and 'Gunome-zashi' stitching is repeated on the Tare panels, completing a well balanced, durable and comfortable set of armor.
