    I don't know if Dragao makes a lightweight, per se, but I've worn a single weave from them and it was very light, lighter than other single weaves I've tried. It also had a great collar. No experience with War kimonos, sorry.

    my instructor and friend both have the WAR gi's, one red, one black. they look great and the pants are nice. the jacket is decent except that the material in the chest bunches together and makes it hard to move around in. both are a2's, instructor is 5'7 170, friend is 5'7 145.

    i'd seriously take a look at fushida, they have a great size chart so it will fit you perfectly.

    Just a thought... How about Naja Extreme? Very lightweight BJJ kimonos with a nice look. Fantastic collar design on these gis. Very comfortable and well made.

    Naja Extreme Gis

    Take care
