The Hyperfly is tops in my current rotation. I just took delivery on a blue one to join my white gi, and I'll selling some others to make room. Very little I could ask to improve on it, but the inseam is a tad long for me. After a number of hot machine dries, it's now about at the length I want. Shrinkage is very minimal even when done on purpose. Fit of the A4 jacket is spot-on for me at 6"1' and 245. Overall comfort is this gi's strong suit and is equally good when wet, dry, whatever. Jacket doesn't give up easy grips, and the collar is pretty chunky. Pants with the Lycra gusset are really nice, keeping things ventilated, and I'm sure even more so for the berimbolo players who need its uber-flexibility. Minor nits about some loose stitches out of the bag, but these were cosmetic only and easily trimmed up. Everything seems solid and likely to last a long while. This is a working gi, suited for practice and competition - it just flat out works.
Best of the Pandas I've tried, including the Gold Weave and Light Pearl. Fit is neat, not a lot of extra material for gripping, but doesn't constrict movement for active players. At 6'1 and 245, the A4 is a pretty spot-on fit for me. Even though the jacket is 350gsm, it feels more substantial than my other lightweight jackets, like the Tatami Subzero, not thin at all. Pants are really top-notch, very comfortable for ripstop, and the drawstring loops are super-solid. There's been basically zero shrinkage through multiple washings and light machine drying. Obviously the navy color isn't IBJJF legal, but the overall look is pretty sharp. All the small details were perfect on my gi out of the bag, no issues. This one's a good buy.
Responding really late on this, but I'm almost exactly your size and the A4 fits me just fine. I think A5 sleeves and inseam would probably be too long, and probably a little baggy.
