The POC back protectors are "sized" based on their length, and number of panels. I don't think you'll find a racer of ANY size using the L/XL as it's so long. Covers too much of the butt, and runs up the top of the spine, way up the neck. Sure it's protection, but it's overkill. My son's team mate is about 6'0 215, and he wears the medium. My daughter is 5'5" and she wears the size XS/S that I'm trying to sell in the forum. I think the M would be the best fit for your while racing. Just my opinion, but I've had some experience with this. BTW, that's a great deal, and SS always sells top quality race gear.
