Tall Skinny drysuit, advice or sales.

Post by GeorgeButler » Tue Jun 27, 2017 5:32 pm

Im 6'2 with a 32-34 waist and size 11 feet, just looking for advice if there is going to be a suit that would fit. From looking at the palm suits it will be a L or XL which will just be too baggy. Any recommendations for dry cag and dry trousers together, are they just as good?

Thanks

I am 6'2", 30" waist and size 10 feet so similar.

I have a Peak UK one piece suit in Medium and it seems to fit nicely, offering enough freedom of movement etc while not choking me!

The one I have is the orange and grey suit with the leg entry zip (from a few years back) but can only assume the sizes are quite similar!

Drop by your local shop and try on a couple if you're not 100%

My son is a bit taller than you and a bit skinnier, and a Palm medium fits him pretty well. It's definitely worth trying a couple of different sizes if you have the chance.

One option is to buy a Dam X (Dam Watersports) - they are all made to measure.

You can get Immersion Research suits lengthened at the legs and arms.

look at the typhoon size chart for the Mutisport 4, would recommend it as excellent Dry suit with good range of sizes, Your PDF and spray deck will deal with any bagginess around the waist.
