I've been looking for a 1 piece suit for TDs and I've found what I want:

http://www.newenough.com/teknic_ligh..._suit_page.htm
or
http://www.newenough.com/teknic_2003..._suit_page.htm

The problem is I have no idea what size I need. I'm 6"4', 170lbs. I'm doing Summit TD this monday (oct. 11) and I need to find a 1 piece ASAP. If anyone would be kind enough to lend me theirs for one day, I'd greatly appreciate it. That's if they fit....and of course, if I wreck in it, I'll pay you however much they are worth.

Hope I can find something

He is 6'4...I doubt a 44 will work for him heightwise. I have the lightning in a 48 and I am 6'3 and it still isn't terribly comfy fully upright (not that it should be).

I don't think very much will fit you off the shelf Amer and 2 pc may be the way to go. Anything that is tall enough will be baggy elsewhere. Now go eat you skinny bastard

actually thats not necessarily true derek. the american cut suits are made that way. but the euro suits like spidi are cut much better for a skinny dude.

amer...if you need it you can borrow my 2 piece since it has already been crash tested twice, i wouldnt mind as long as you dont put a hole in the shit.

Yea, I know that too well. It was hard finding a leather jacket, when I finally got something that fit my long arms, I had enough room in mid-section to shoplift an entire isle.

it may be a little floppy here and there(its a joe rocket speedmaster 2pc), but i figure you are but 2 inches taller and most of that extra length seems to be in the legs...i dont see why it wouldnt fit.
its funny i never realized that my jacket fit a little loose around my arms until i was flyin down the straight at 150-160... FLAP FLAP FLAP...just consider it a friendly reminder to TUCK.

What's all this anger? Did your team loose again?

I wouldn't mind having a hamburger or two as long as you're paying.

My shit is all kinds of Richard Simmons tight, but what is a guy to do. First suit and it was a gamble. As long as I am mobile it should do for the day and maybe one more TD this season. Since I was the lucky winner of the JR jacket Tuesday I already have 1./2 of a speedmaster 2 piece

Maybe I should sport some bootie shorts and a tank top under the leathers to complete the look.
