Buying a GS race suit.... What size??? I am right in between...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

As the title states I want to buy a GS race suit and I am right between sizes...

 I am 5'10 / actually 3-4mm over that/ and 172LBS...

 

Almost, if not all of the sizing charts for race suits list L/large/ 

for weight between 140-170 lbs and height of 5"7" - 5'10"...

 

What size should I buy??? L or XL???

 

I doubt if I ever go below 170 lbs and if I do it will be in the summer, not now...

I wear  jeans size 32 ... I am leaning toward XL...  I do not want something very tight, or very loose...

 

Thanks in advance for your time... 

Regards, Andy...

That depends on the manufacturer (Spyder runs different than Louis runs different than Descente runs different from Vist etc.).  I would go with the L versus the XL, since the suit will always stretch but never shrink.

Go by chest size.  Only grab the XL if you take 44+ in suits.
