I don't see why anyone buys a hakama for Aikido with a traditional koshita. The soft ones from Bujin are very comfortable to roll on. Also, unless you have a big belly, the extended front panel is nice. I got my recent one in the lightest, cheapest weight, and am pleased with it. I don't understand why people get thick, heavy gi tops and hakama - to me that's just a bunch of extra bulk and weight to get in my way. I'd rather just repair holes or buy new ones more frequently.
