Hi, Anthony - two of three beta tests are done and being very happily worn in my local dojo - the third and final beta test JUST started getting measured and cut today for sending across the continent. This is for the TOP only - at custom sewing prices, folks who wear a hak are not interested in custom pants to wear under!
So far all 3 are cut in the judo style but I can easily adapt to a karate style. The 100% hemp is an amazing fabric to work with - a real pleasure.

Looks pretty neat. I'm aware of hemp's durability over cotton however I'm a heavy sweater so a concern for me would be absorbency. Any comments on hemp v. cotton on that regard?
