    661 Defender Protector sizing?

    Question for those who use "roost" style armor...

    The adult medium Defender is listed for 5'-5'11" / 110-150 lbs. I'm 5'8" / 175 lbs.. The medium I have feels good when on and seems to hit/cover all the right spots, but I'm wondering if I should exchange it for a Adult "large" which is listed for 5'6"-6'6" / 140-220 lbs. My height falls under both sizes, so I'm wondering what the difference in the two will be as far as the weight is concerned. The medium I have is not tight at all, and fits well around my chest and on my shoulders and arms. Would the actual "armor" on the Large be any longer in the front or back providing more coverage, or is it simply a difference in the strap/chest size? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
