Looking at getting one of these bad boys and I need some help selecting a size.

Stats
5'9"
175 Lbs
33" Waist
40" chest
Long torso
Short legs
Athletic build

Thinking either med or large but in the charts I am right in the middle.

Thanks for the insight.

Always go bigger. It's easier to adjust to one that's too big than too small.

I agree with Chris, I'm 5'10" ~170 and I have an XL. Works great for me and it's big enough I can let other bigger people use it.

I'm 5'8" and 170 and have a medium and it fits great with plenty of extra room. I've worn the large as well and it was really big and baggy on me.

im 6 foot 1. around 190. and i have a large, and it fits me great. ive had people as short as 5 foot 5 and weighing 130 wear it, up to 5 foot 10 weighing 250.
ive been the tallest in it. but i still have more room for height in it.

I'd go with a XL. You don't want it to tight !

Large should be fine.

I am almost the exact same build as you and wear a medium. It's plenty big I would be swimming in a large. The Boosts seem to run a bit big...........

Looks like we're all really no help. I'm 6'0 160 and rock a large. Personally I'd rather size up than down.

Wow!!
Med, lrg, and XL recommendations. I'm stumped. Really, Im just worried about the drysuit giving me a crannie with my longer torso. I am leaning towards the med.
