I also have a Tozando Hakama and have to say that it is the best I've ever worn. I have had cheap all polyester ones, and a Bu Jin Poly/cotton blend. The Tozando Hakama just seems to have superior craftsmenship in my opinion, as well as double reenforcing on all the stress points of a hakama. It holds the pleats very well and folds nicely. And hey, if its good enough for the Doshu and the Aikikai Hombu....
