I'm in the market for a suit and I've narrowed it down to two. I was hoping to hear some feedback from some taller/lankier guys like myself to see which one to go with. Unfortunately, I don't have anywhere local to try them both.

I'm 6'2", 180lbs, and wear a 32/34 pant, even though my waist is more like a 30 or 31. Anyone with a similar build have experience with either of these suits? I would also be using back and chest protection underneath the suit, which could play a part in fitting.

I plan on doing that before I place my order with them, but I wanted to get some feedback from people on here first.

My friend uses a taichi two piece and he loves it. He has a longer torso to leg length and my dainese is really tight in the crotch on him but we are both 6 feet and 190 to 200 pounds.
I love the look of dainese more but they are both great quality. You'd be happy with either one.

I have a TAICHI suit and LOVE it. I have had 3 different suits in the past and this by far the best. They have 2 different sizing charts, one for 'Americans' and another which is Japanese that is more slender of a cut for someone like yourself. I had the same issue with outher suits that were big enough for my 6' 3" height were baggy in the midsection. the Japanese sizing they offer fits like a glove everywhere includuing the midsection just like a custom suit would fit

Let me make it more difficult for you. Look at the Cortech Adrenaline suit. I shopped it to death and this is the best suit for the $$$. STG has a video review on their web site.

I own and have crashed in a Dainese Laguna Seca Pro Perf. I pushed the front too hard, low sided, slammed head first into the ground and then slid along the ground for about thirty feet and slammed into an embankment. Suit held up.

I am 6.05 165 lean and fit into the Dainese suit well. Either suit will fit slim people. I know a couple of people who have an RS and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase one. I just wanted something a little more plain - so I went with the Dainese.

I love my Dainese Laguna Seca Pro suit and it's been down twice and you couldn't tell. I also own a RS Taichi leather jacket so you really can't go wrong with either choice. I also have to say I love the D Tec system with the Dainese suit. I love not having to tuck in my suit in my boot

I have that exact Taichi suit and I love it. The fitment on it is slender/athletic so if you have a few extra pounds on your stomach it will be tight. Other wise it's awesome. it's my second Taichi suit, with superior quality and it looks outstanding on top of that. Can't go wrong with it.

It will partially come down to the fit you are after. One measurement I am missing in your info in the OP is your chest size which really helps me determine what to put you in. Shoot me a call when you have some time and I will go over that with you. Thanks!

i think you're better off getting an arlen ness on closeout. better suit - imo - and WAY cheaper price. there's a reason MOST of the wss and moto2 guys run the arlen ness suits.
