I have to order turnout gear and I am having problems with the size. I am 6'2" and mostly legs. The problem is I cant find the right fit partly because Im not 100% sure how they are supposed to fit. I wear my normal pants at like 34x34 or so but all the bunker pants that Im finding are short. A 30 inch inseam is the longest I can find with a waist size that comes close. The other problem that I am having is that the chest size that fits me is small in the sleeves should I order the bigger gear with less length or what should I do?

Agreed. Most gear manufacturers will measure you, and make gear to fit. I am 6' 1" and all shoulders, another member is 6' 4" with no shoulders, and knuckle dragger style arms, and our globe fits us perfectly. We also have mostly belly, and mostly butt members, one former member was 6' 8", 375 lbs., and asides from the Omar the tent maker surcharge for really big gear, they should be able to do it.There goes the neighborhood.
