Jiu Jitsu Pro Gear produces one of the best known and most reliable full-ripstop kimonos on the market. They've refined the cut and build over the years, resulting in a perfect ripstop Gi. Both the jacket and pants are built from 100% ripstop cotton that is lightweight and breathable. The design is relatively straightforward. No big patches, no flashy embroideries, and no contrast stitching. Whether you want to patch up the Gi with your team patches or just keep it plain and clean, this is a great choice. IBJJF approved.
JJPG Gis have a great fit with room around the shoulders/underarms that provide plenty of mobility without adding extraneous weight or bulky folds of material. Jacket is built from a sturdy Ripstop Weave with heat resistant ripstop lapels. The lightweight ripstop pants have reinforced seams and double-layer knees.

im at the end of fitting into A2 at 6' and 190ish lbs. any one knows about this gi's shrinkage? or should i go A3 to give room for shrinkage?
I would say A3 is a much better choice, in order to allow for shrinkage.
why do you never have Gis in 5A for us bigger people
Does anyone know what the shrinkage is like on these? I've had ripstop
pants before but never a woven rip stop gi top.
Ugh! Been waiting for this gi but wanted it in black ??
when did ripstop jackets become ibjjf approved?
As long as they're a 'weave' style ripstop, it's approved. If it's a thin ripstop like that of your Gi pants, then it won't work.
But heavier, woven type ripstop like Koral Light and JJPG Ripstop, totally legit.
