Thick, heavy-duty Gis are great. But when the warm weather comes around, it's wise to have one or two lightweight Gis in your rotation... Especially if you're an active competitor or train frequently during the Summer months.
Not only does Grab and Pull's new AIR Gi meet this criteria, but it is extremely comfortable, not stiff or scratchy or stretchy. The 350 GSM Pearl top is about as breathable as BJJ Gis get, complemented by the ultra-soft ripstop pants and ripstop-covered collar. Throughout the jacket, double-taped interior seams - using one layer of woven graphic tape and one layer of ripstop - ensure that even the most roughed up areas of stitching will be safe from fraying or tearing.
Grab and Pull has chosen the superior embroidery style application over the woven style in most areas, including every single one of the jacket's logos and the pants' right shin logo. A single small label is sewn on the left hip to easily indicate the size of each Gi.
Aside from those two logo hits, the pants are relatively clean and modest, featuring very limited contrast stitching. At the waist, there are four drawstring loops to securely hold the round stretch cord in place. Full-length knee reinforcements guarantee full coverage while sparring from the feet or knees.

I'd guess A2 and get the sleeves and pants hemmed a bit if needed.. just a guess though. that's what I would do :)
A2 and shrink to fit as needed. It shouldnt require hemming/tailoring, just some thorough shrinking. Give it one warm wash, then toss it in the dryer on Medium Heat and check the length out every 10min until you like it.
5'11 170 = A3?
I went with an A3.
I'm 6'3" 200lb. I went for A4. I usually like a smaller fit for body wear. This is my first GI. Think I'm good or would A3 be better?
for me if right at the limit for a gi size then it still fits nice. it'll just be fitted. which is how I like my gi's. so either go with an A3 if you like the fitted look or shrink to fit the A4
At 6'5" 255, is an A4 going to be large enough? Any danger of shrinking if I keep it out of the dryer? If it helps I have an A4 Moya gi that's a bit large in the chest and arms.
You would be cutting it a bit close with this particular model.
