is an XL kokatat drysuit too big for me?

I'm 6'1" 180 lbs without gear. The large fits me fine, but it seems like I come across used XL drysuits more often. Let me know if you think it would be too baggy, or if you think it would be fine.

I'm 6'2 190 lbs and the xl fits me great. It's a little baggy in the butt and legs but if you have long arms the extra length in the sleeves is nice (no issues with the suit constricting movement).

thanks for the replies. does anyone know if the entry zipper on an xl is longer than on a large? i feel like a longer zipper would dig into my hips when sitting in the kayak.

I'm 5'10" and 185 lbs and I bought an XL kokatat drysuit based on a similarly sized friend's recommendation. It's certainly a little baggy, but nothing ridiculous. The zipper is fine. No discomfort.

You can burp out some extra air so it doesn't feel too baggy.

IMHO, drysuit fit isn't nearly as important as wetsuit fit.

I'm 5'9" and sometimes get up to 195, i have an XL and once you burp it, its fine. If you can get a deal on one, you won't be disappointed. I have had mine for about 20 years now, am on my 5th? set of neck gaskets and 3rd ankle/wrists. Make sure you get a relief zipper, worth the extra $$$ for sure. When its crappy weather out, you don't want to be exposin your dry under garments just to whiz.
