The YAKUDO utilizes the strongest and heaviest no 10, 12 oz cotton canvas designed to endure the hardest wear to last. This highest grade of cotton canvas provides twice the tensile strength and 20% more friction resistance for strong durability. Cotton is the original wicking material that will keep moisture away from the body. The uniform will shrink by 2% overall.
