The color, weight, and quality of the kendogi are exceptional. I'm so pleased with the lightweight, yet classic weave of this kendogi. Most of the basic kendogi I've tried are heavy and feel bulky, but the Sapphire Moon is comfortable while still looking smart. Do pay special attention to the arm measurements (A in the size chart) and the total length (B in the size chart), as both areas were a bit longer than most kendogi I've found online. Conversely, the B length may not be as much of an issue for you, as it does help to prevent side exposure and keep the kendogi in place within the hakama.
The hakama is labeled as #5,500, but again, as with the kendogi, the quality is very nice. It's a lightweight hakama without bulk, the color is a deep, rich sei-aizome, and feels more like a #7,000 or #8,000 yarn density to the hand. I may have purchased one size longer than I should have, but am hoping it will shrink a bit with further washing.
I'm very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend both the "Sapphire Moon Kendogi and Taka Hakama" set from Kendo Bogu Japan to my fellow kenshi for practice.
