I have been looking at different one piece suits and am wondering if anyone has any experience with suit for tall people. The top I need to spend would be between 1,000.00 to 1,300.00 so the custom suits that I have seen are out of the question.

Would the current solution I have now (two piece AP with long track pants) be the best? Thanks

When you get this one figured out let me know. I have been trying to get the guts up to buy a new one on line but figured it would turn into an exchange back and forth nightmare, I'm 6'3" and according to the sizing charts it doesn't seem like anything will fit.

I have a size 48 motogp kangaroo suit i'm 6-3 215 and wear a 44L suit jacket. I fit with no problem's, I would like to try a 46 to see if it's a little tighter in the torso.

Good to know, that's one of the suits I was considering going with, price wise and fromwhat I hear they hold up real well. Have any problems with yours?

I'm 6'-1" and 220 lbs with a 37" waist and wear a 46 suit coat. The Alpinestars suit in 50/60 (US/European) fits me just fine. It's loose around the waist but is otherwise perfect.

Getting the fit between the crotch and shoulders seems to be the most important dimension with 1-piece suit fitment.

I'm 90% a motogp 48 would fit you, I wear a dainese back protector with mine and its still got room in the chest and gut area. The arms and legs are plenty long enough & I'm not getting racked at all. The suit has some great forearm armor and from the knee to shin has thick padding. Have not had any problems with the zippers. i wear it every time I ride all summer long. I can't find my camera here at work but if you guys really want I can take pics tom.
