Figured I'd post this up for the tall guys. I'm 6'4", 190, 46" chest, 36" waist, just got a Teknic Violator 2 pc, size 48 U.S., and it fits pretty well. I was told I'd have to go custom but that's not the case. I could probably gain about 10 more pounds to fill it in perfectly, but it fits well as is. I've got a little space in the chest (really, it's around the bottom of my shoulder blades, or the lat area) because my chest isn't close to a 48. But the rest fits pretty damned well. Legs are pretty snug, stomach area fits pretty well, it's nice and snug across the shoulders and the upper chest area, and the length is perfect. Arms are perfect length, though a bit loose on me (need to hit the gym I guess ) There's enough room for a back protector, which I'll get from Teknic soon. Anyway, if any tall lanky people are looking for a suit that fits well, Teknic may be the way to go. Just remember, the 1 pc will be a bit shorter, and some of the other models are more of a race cut, and will be tighter than this suit. The build quality seems to be excellent. It's got CE armor in the shoulders, elbows, back, hips and knees, and comes with sliders. And the chest, stomach and thighs are perfed. Can't wait to go riding! Hope this info is helpful.

Welcome to the power ranger club....

That will be great for the colder days with something on underneath... maybe in the summer you could double up the armor in the loose areas to keep things in place if you crash. Just a thought!

Thanks guys. Yeah, as far as wearing something underneath it, I really can't fit anything under the pants except for maybe long johns or something basically skin tight and really thin. If I get a beefy back protector that'll take up most of the slack on top. It's actually really snug across the shoulders, so I'm not worried about the shoulder armor moving. Elbows should be fine, and the knee pads aren't gonna move at all. It's kind of strange, it fits almost perfectly everywhere except right where my lats are. It's not baggy at all, just got some extra leather in that one spot.

Oh yeah, power ranger....I'm gonna be a power ranger to the max. Got black and yellow. Goes well with the Rossi helmet. I actually prefer a little more subtlety, but I got a good deal on this color combo. Hehe, I may look a little like a super hero, but at least I'm confident that I'll be seen by other drivers.

I'll post a pic sometime this week if I can find a host for my pics.

a bit. Let's just say it was difficult getting up after I sat on my couch. It's not bad now.

What about a suit for the more heavy set, rotund guys.
Friggin Joe Rocket is good for it but if you are in between sizes the larger is to baggy but not long enough. Any suggestions
and NO i dont mean join a gym already taking care of the bigger belly after winter! but even when completely fit its still the same.
