Grab & Pull has revised and improved one of their most popular Gi models, resulting in the best edition yet: The Premium Version 3.For the guys, G&P's white Premium V3 features soft blue accents in the form of heavy-duty contrast stitching, side vents, and graphic taping along the exterior skirt. For the ladies, it's the same Gi only the trim is a purple/lavender instead of blue (see the last pics for details on the women's Gi).
Extra-strong 550 GSM cotton weave is sure to withstand the toughest training you can dole out (unless your name is Sensei Seagal, in which case there may be no Gi strong enough for your vicious techniques, I'm sorry).
Pants are lightweight ripstop (an even lighter build than the Premium V2!) with reinforced knees and 4 drawstring loops. The old school flat string has been replaced with the superior stretch cord style, making tying/untying your Gi pants hassle-free.
Men's sizes are A1-A4, women's sizes are F1-F4. The final three pictures are of the women's version of this Grab & Pull gi.

Why must women's gi's have pretty colors? Just give me a men's gi, cut for a woman with female sizes.
well, on this one it's just the stitching xp
I am 5'6" and 155lbs. Will an A1 have any further shrinkage as it looks to be a perfect size as long it doesn't shrink?
I think you should always expect skrinkage, so A2 may be a safer bet. Then again, A2 looks a little big for you, so either you can get an A2 and shrink it a ton and hopefully it won't be too baggy, or get an A1 and try to prevent shrinking by washing cold and not drying, and hopefully it won't get too small.
I'd say A1. There may be some shrinkage, but looking at the size guide, you've got 2 inches of wiggle room on the A1's height range. If your height were at the top of A1's range, I'd say bump up to A2, but even after shrinkage the A2 will probably be too long.
I am 5'10" 210 lb, what would you recommend, need to buy it soon lol :P
A3 would be good. Length is always easier to shrink than width
^^^ Yup, A3.
That's nice that they make women's gis. Their height to size chart is sure weird though. and what about girls who are taller than 5'9? Or girls who aren't stocky? For women's sizing, I love Fenom and I love my women's Atama, especially the pants! Good to see more women's gis though.
If you're more slender than the size chart leads on (agreed that it points toward stocky female body types), then it's ok to go with the size that suits your height. You'll just need to shrink it a little bit.
For example if you are 5'8" but only 135, it's ok to go for the F4.
[[For this Gi, girls taller than 5'9" (being 5" taller than the avg. chick) are approaching the avg. male height, so starting at 5'10" the ladies would need to bump up to Men's A2.]]
