DaveM - I just got mine today... The honeycomb weave feels awesome! Very lightweight and the collar isn't bad either! The pants are not reinforced but in 11 years of training I've never once ripped my pants so I don't think that's a big deal. Oh yeah, and it looks awesome too!
My problem is that I ordered an A3 and then changed it to an A2 when I saw the sizing chart (fightersmarket was very helpful and took care of the order change right away). I am 6' 195 lbs so I should fall into the A2 category however the pants are too short, the jacket body fits nice and snug but its borderline too short and the sleeves are about an inch & a quarter too short. If I wash this thing at all I wouldn't be able to wear it!
I'm going to have to return it for an A3 and hope that its not too big.
What other gi's do you wear in A3?
I think you will be swimmin in A3 Vulkan as it is supposed to fit someone 40lbs heavier.
I am in same boat as you and same size and was gonna order A2
