The tetron and cotton hakama have very little in common. If you are buying for beginners / kids, I'd probably still recommend the tetron, but for adults, these are big league hakama. They are quite heavy, and semi-rigid. It is great that they have the pleats sewn in, as I can imagine this would be quite difficult to maintain otherwise. Also, do prepare for a couple of weeks of looking like a Smurf - the indigo dye does rub off for a while :) All in all, very happy and as always, dispatch and delivery at lightening speed.
