    I'm pretty sure I need an XL... What is your rough height/weight?
    I'm 6'1" and 110kg

    Large will be no good for you.
    I'm 6' 82 kg, 101cm chest and large is a good fit on me.

    Interesting. I'm 6' 83KG and all my Kuiu gear is size medium. I guess it depends what you're wearing underneath your yukon / chugach

    Im 5,11 , 90kg it,s a little short across the shoulders , figure im better off with a XL especially if your wanting a few layers underneath ...if your wanting to order one @Dorkus could split the freight ? .Freight for the jacket & attack pants was $80 nzd & took 4 weeks to get here .

    Why don't these manufactureres make stuff for folks like me? I'm 180cm (5'11") 67kg, 107cm chest, 86cm waist (getting fat). Tried to buy a wetsuit and I needed an SM-XL.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Whettie wet suits are done on weight only !
    The theory is that the weight dictates the internal volume and the suits just expand / relocate in 3D.
    I was sceptical about how the sizing worked but I ordered on weight and it was perfect ( But I guess Im a fairly normal size re height, weight and diameter ).
    The new wet suit materials are so flexible and soft that even you will find one that works and might just pull in that ( getting fat ) waist and redistribute it somewhere else !
