Hi Everyone, the title pretty much says it all, I'm looking forward to catching the cod but don't want to freeze like i did last year!
i'm about 6 foot 1 and a bit inches tall with a size 50 waist :oops:
have had a look on ebay all i could find was an abu one which looked a like it probably would be a little bit too small, obviously i want enough room to be able to move freely, any other big guys or gals had this problem? what did you find?

if this is the one you are refering to, i think the guy i just modeling maybe a medium possibly.

390075486987

send them a message and ask for measurements of the XXXL or there abouts.

it does look like quite a nice suit tbh, not as garish as others i have seen.

hope this kind of helps, al.

You want to get a sundridge one, they go up to xxxl then G (giant). Or look on the titan site for a storm suit. After all do you really need a floaty. I'm about your dap and I ware a good quality waterproofs (breathable) with (greys extreme) bib n braces. Warm dry and comfy. If I fish a dagouous mark I ware an auto inflate life jacket.

I`ve got my investments :drunk: into the Fladen suit - I`m the same waist and I found their XXL ( yellow jacket ) suit was just right, whereas I found the Sundridge XXXL " a bit snug ". I`m having major problems getting into size 12 chest waders at the minute ( feet are 10 ) unless I go commando and oil up first ( just joking girls :blink: :headhurt: ) and have decided after 2 different failures buying off Ebay I`ve got to get myself to a shop with a good stock to try a set on in person, its the only way....

I use this one and it works a treat.

Never tried it in the sea and I hope I do not need to.

Very quick delivery and excellent attention to detail.
try this flotation suit

Nice to encounter another man of stature. I'm fed up with shops that only sell boy's sizes! It's cost me a fortune in taxes to get to the size I am now. I expect something in return.

I have the sundridge entec in giant. 52" chest and 5' 11".

The bib and braces would be a perfect fit if the legs were shorter. for your height they would be ideal.

The Jacket is very baggy though and come down to my knees almost. If I had a chance to of mixed and matched I'd of gone down 1 size for the jacket. Again, with your extra height it should be fine. I could wear another coat under then jacket and it would still fit.

I've also got the abu bib & brace in XXL and I reakon you'd need a 38" waist for them to fit (or mine are marked the wrong size)
