    Hey guys, I'm looking for a little help with the sizing of the Shoyoroll Comp Standard 450 since I've heard several complaints about the sizing.

    I'm 6'6 and hover around 225 lbs. I plan on staying around that weight for the near future. I have two gi's right now, a size A-5 Atama Mundial and a size A-4 Fuji. The Atama jacket is huge on me even after I've shrunk it like crazy and I never wear it but the pants fit great. The Fuji jacket fits me perfectly but the pants are a little short.

    I'm torn between the A-3S and the A-4. I'm worried about the A-4 since I'm at the bottom end of the sizing (weight wise) and I don't want to swim in the jacket like my Atama. I messaged Vince to get his advice but there's an auction ending within the next day on ebay so I'm looking for quick feedback. Any help is appreciated.

    at 6'6, i don't think the sleeves on the A3S would be competition legal on you.

    i'd email vince about the sizing.

    I'm 6'4 206ibs and wear an A4, I think you need to go A5 man, and maybe just shrink it a tiny tiny bit.
