    What do you guys think about it?

    I hear that Keiko is good for lanky guys. But I am not sure if their summer gi is really light. Does anybody have it?

    I guess with 6'1 and 170 I should take A3 with Keiko?

    I had it and the pants weren't that light. They were the same as the limited. And the jacket was lighter than the limited. Not by a lot but it was lighter IMO

    Thanks!
    Was it soft? And would you call it a real light weight gi?

    It was soft actually. And it didn't stretch like most light weight Gis. I wouldn't call it a real lightweight gi but it was more breathable than a normal gi.

    Would you call it better or worse than certain other lightweight gis?

    Better than the Vulkan and Gamness Air/Feather i.m.o. which all stretch terribly. If you're referring to the trend of lightweight gi's that are out now, I would say if the Keiko Raca fits your body then its definitely better. For me it was a janky fit so I prefer the other ones even though most of their collars aren't that great.

    I love me a Keiko collar.

    Thanks, I think I will give it a try!
    You haven't compared it to the Kingz 420 by any chance?
