Datsusara is a Japanese phrase meaning "to leave the salaried/corporate worker's life". Datsusara was founded in 2007 and has a singular goal, to make truly functional, high quality gear.
Datsusara gear is manufactured to be as strong and versatile as military gear, while also incorporating the most functional textiles nature has to offer. They often use green materials like hemp and bamboo, which are not only extremely durable but also breathable and anti-microbial.
Much of Datsusara's gear was originally designed specifically for the MMA practitioner’s needs and this remains at our core. But they also make gear for anyone seeking a unique, durable, high quality product to get them through the adventures of life. Whether in the cage, on vacation or simply dealing with a daily commute, we have the gear to get you through.
This gear is not for everyone. It’s not essential gear, but you’ll discover it’s the gear that you’ve always wanted. If you’re tired of “making do” with what’s on the market Datsusara is for you.
Hemp is the ultimate natural fiber for making bags and apparel, it is the worls strongest natural fiber as it's tensile strength is up to 4x that of cotton.
Hemp is naturally anti-bacterial and kills the growth of fungi and bacteria, it is also hypo allergenic and UV resistant
Hemp wicks moisture away from the body as it absorbs and releases perspiration quickly, allowing the fabric to breathe
Hemp crops require little or no pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertillizers, cotton uses 24% of the worls insecticides and 10% of the worlds pesticides. Therefore hemp is earth friendly!
Hemp can produce 2-3x more fiber than cotton using the same amount of land and it matures in only 4 months! It also does not deplete the soil as much as other crops do and it can clean the soil of toxins and other impurities.
Hemp has existed for over 10,000 years and can be used for Clothing, Plastics, Fuel, Home Materials, Cosmetics, Food and Paper!
