    Body Armor

    Hey guys. I was looking into getting some body armor but am having trouble finding the right size. I am 6' 3" so most manufacturers recommend a XXL, but my chest is only about 42cm. Does anybody have any suggestions or personal experiences that can help?
    -Thanks

    there is no way your chest is only 42 cm so Im guessing you meant 42 inches. Im 6'3 also and my chest about about 39-40 inches and I wear a Large 661 pressure suit. The chest is actually alittle big on me but the rest of the suit fits perfect. Best way is to just go try some stuff on.

    Same here, 6"1' and Large Dainese Gladiator Evo. I'm pretty slim so even tried M but that was way too tight on the chest.

    The main reason you need the bigger size is for the kidney belt... I am 6' 6" and have a 38" chest, I went with the Large Rockgardn Armor.... if that is any help.

    I've got my eye on the Thor Impact Rig SE, only I can't find anybody in my vicinity that actually has one in stock for me to try on. I'm 6'5" with a 44" chest and stupidly long arms (I think I measure 6'9" from wing tip to wing tip).
