    A3, you might have to get it tailored down, or it might shrink down a bit too depending on the kimono.

    What do you think about Sirius? I like the Ultra Lite one with the Lion on the back.

    if it matters, gameness seems to run a little bigger. i'm 5'9" 170. my old gi was a A4
    my gameness A3 was big when new. i washed it in hot water and dried, it shrunk down to the perfect size now.

    Something not too light that it'll rip within a year and not so heavy it feels like a sauna. Something that will stand up to the rigors of hard training and competition. Didn't know they came pre-shrunk or shrink to fit, but I guess that doesn't really matter too me. Oh yeah...and it wouldn't hurt if it looked cool too.
