Re: lightweight hakama

Does anyone have any advice on where I can find an EXTREMELY lightweight hakama? At a seminar I once saw a fellow with one that was so light, you could see through it when the light shone the right way...this is the kind of thing I'm looking for!
It sounds like one of Tozando's "Summer Weight" hakamas. Unfortunately, they discontinued those a couple of years ago.

I recently got a lightweight tetron hakama from and while it's lighter than everyone else's hakama at my dojo, it's not as light as my summer weight hakama from Tozando.

So far, though, the lightweight tetron is the closest I've found to my Tozando summer weight hakama.
