    Default turnout gear

    Hello,

    I am looking for your recomendations on turnout gear for bigger guys. I am 6'3, and weigh about 265-270 pounds. I ordered a set of Chieftan 3200X gear (size 3x pants, size 2x coat) and the pants fite fine. The coat however was to short in length, and sleeve length. I have searched around, and can't find any gear for people of my size. What are your recomedations.

    thanks,

    Ben

    Get gear from a vendor and not online and they'll come out and fit you for gear.

    Basically with Globe, Cairns, etc, you are sized for your gear and they are not just "2x, 3x, etc".

    Never buy gear from a catalog as Adze says!
