I'm 5'10 and 240lbs. Is anyone else rocking a xl or xxl billy and what is the fit like?

I have grown do trust size charts less and less with each new purchase.

Looking at snagging a furnace natural or comp. Thanks for any help!

You live in OC and cant find those sizes?? Shoots Ive worn an XL/Bong and was 6'1"/200 lbs. and Imagine a big diff in fit between us.

Not a bigger guy but for what it's worth I just ordered a 3/2 in medium which I hit the lower end of their size range, but on paper that's where I should be, and I need to send back and try a MS because the medium had too much arm, leg, and chest space. Maaaaybe could have made it work, but it would have always annoyed me. The suit did seem really nice for the money, so happy to try again with billabong.

You live in the OC.

Go get a Cyber made.

At 5'10 240 there are no OTR suits that are going to fit you properly and last.

I know when I was 240-260, all my wetsuits were XXL, I actually had a Furnace Comp it was a good suit. I found off the rack when I was bigger, Hotline was the best fit, hope that helps?
