Ok so last year I bought a two piece, furygan akira jacket with brutale evo legs. I usually connect the two via the long zip at the back. tho because im around 6'2/6'3 the zip connections pull quite hard rolling and miss shaping the leather at the bottom of the jacket. (guessing its not long enough in the body) everytime I tuck up on the bike.

Yet now ive lost some weight, the jacket (which is a 46/xl) is too big, especially around the shoulders and neck. im now about a 42-44 chest. probably a 44 as the old sparda jacket I bought for work fits well, but like I say.... old and well used. lol

I tried on a 44 one piece furygan at the shop, and as I tried to put my arm in and lift it onto my shoulder, I got the surprise of my life as it nearly split me in two from the crotch up. What companys deal in longer sizes. I don't really want to go 46 as it will be back to two piece with the top too big I imagine. not owned a one piece tho, hence my question.

If it helps any my weight is 100kg/15.7 stone (used to be bigger) and 6'2/6'3 (not been measured in a long time!) don't let the 15 stone fool you, im quite thin still, tho little extra timber round the gut still. lol massive thanks to anyone who can help. :)

Very hard to find! I am 6'4'' and about 195 pounds and I found that in general I had to havea fairly loos fitting suit in order for it to fit me height wise. You will most likely need to get a custom suit. My plan for my suit is to take it to a leather specialist and see if they can slightly fit it to me without compromising the safety of the suit.


I think theres a company called LionHeartMoto that makes custom suits.... lol I kid I kid!

I'm not as big as you, but probably similar proportions - I'm 6' 155lbs...have tried on a number of suits and nothing really works for me. I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get a custom one made if I end up really liking the track days I do this summer :O

Have you been quoted for one yet? If so, how much are you looking at? (if you don't mind me asking of course)

I haven't been quoted yet nor have I even figured out where I would go for it (ie what company), but if I do anytime soon, I'll certainly share any info I get!

I'm 6'2/205lbs and I can't fit a 54 EU/44 US. I have a 56 EU Spidi Track Wind suit and it fits me well. For Dainese, I have to go up at least a 58, sometimes 60.

At 6'2" and about 155, I have so far owned two suits that approximate my width (more or less) but don't allow me to comfortably make the "GP victory" pose. Fortunately my newer suit is a little flexible in the joints so I can move okay, but the next suit I get may be custom made unless I gain some tonnage.

My husband is 6'2" and weighs about 160lbs and we've found him several suits...

I think you guys just need to find somewhere with options to try stuff on or be open to ordering one and maybe needing to do an exchange if you aren't close to a shop with a good selection.

It also is going to depend on what you wear under it. He wears a back protector and armored shorts, always and usually a chest protector.

You might need to talk to someone that knows suits and can walk you through some of the options that have a slimmer fit over an "American" fit.

He is currently wearing a Alpinestars Race Replica, which can be out of the price range for sure but we got a killer deal with the Mega Closeout we had last year. The RS Taichi suits also fit him very well and Dainese would have been another option.

My issue exactly. Next suit I get will have to be trial and error. Got my current one during tennis going out of business sale and it's good enough... lol.

It's just a shade tight, which I preferred to loose.

Spidi suits fit tall guys pretty well. I am 6'1" 195 and can stand up straight in one no problem. I am a little heavier than you but those are very snug fitting. My Laguna Seca Evo is a really good fit for me as well. If you can find somewhere to get a custom one done though you will be a lot happier.

I have yet to find a suit off the shelf that fits me. I'm 6'3" and about 175lbs. So I have to buy a larger suit to get the length in the arms and legs... but sacrifice some room in the mid section of most suits. If you want a perfect fitting one piece, have one custom made.
