The Tactical Tenugui (La Manga) is a modern day version of something that has been used around the world for centuries. This modern day version of the Tenugui was designed by Ed Calderon (of Ed’s Manifesto) after years of work and refinement in the field. Using modern sewing techniques & premium durable fabrics, it is part utility cloth, part tool. The Tenugui will become one of the most versatile and used pieces of equipment you carry!
