    Well im 6ft 175lb id say my upper body is medium built not huge not small... and i have that same medium 661 jacket, its too big on me. That line is build for "larger" riders. You need like a 18in arm to fill in the arms on it... Might I suggest a different model from 661. Personal Preferance is New Dainese Impact Armor, has no arm pads.

    They run about a size big. I'm 220 6' and went with the large. XL was sagging all over...

    Use the sizing on the website:
    http://sixsixone.com/Information_Sizing.aspx

    Measure yourself using a tape measure. When you do that, check that site and it'll tell you exactly which size to get.


    I did what the website said to do for everything I ordered from them: gloves, a helmet, pressure suit, and some shin guards.

    They all fit me perfectly.

    I'm also in the market for an armor vest.
    I like Dainese equipment but they are SOOOOO expensive. It's hard to go for Dainese vests going for $300 a pop when you can find the Azonic A-6, 661 Pressure suit and the Fox launch suit for well under $200. Is the Dainese really worth the extra well over $100 more?
    And what is everyone's take on the Fox launch suit? With the exception of the Dainese vests, the Fox is at the top of my list.

    I'm 5'9", 125. 18 years old. Pressure suit size small was a little large. Sizing bikes is even worse for me. I never know whether I should go small, medium, or sometimes even large frame size. Small torso, long legs, weigh less than a bag of potato chips.

    5'8" 145lbs here... the small fits me fine. If I had added another inch or so onto my heaving 36" chest, it would be a tight fit but still doable as the mesh stretches. I have the pressure suit with the blue piping not the red piping and don't know if the sizing is different between the two.

    It may depend on whether or not you wear a wicking tshirt underneath (to prevent smells) OR whether you want it tight fitting to prevent shifting during a crash OR for comfort reasons.

    I'd say you should get a small and then grow into it. I think an xsmall would be too small on you.

    I heard that the pressure suit for the same brand 661 will vary.. Ex the sp1/sp2 fits different from the pro in the actual sizing measurements.

    I would suggest going to a LBS and trying some on. Even if it is the best armor in the world, if it fits wrong it is pretty worthless.
