Any tall thin guys wear a Kokatat dry suit

I am looking into getting a Kokatat dry suit. I was wondering if I should get one custom made of order a size that that offer. I am between 6'3'' and 6'4'' and weigh around 195 to 205, and have size 14 shoe. If someone is close to this let me know what size fit you. Thanks.

6'8 210, ive got a xxl kokatat that i had them add 2" to the inseam. i wear a 36" pant, size 14 and it fits great. before the 2" it was just a little too snug in the crotch for my liking, i'd say that the xxl should fit you perfect. or get the xl and pay them the $35? to add the length you need. hands down the best purchase you will make for yourself.

XL is fine, I am the same size, 6' 3.5" 197# sz 13, never had an issue with the fit of my xl kokatat had it for a year and a half. I am curious why you think you need a custom? If the booties are a concern, I easily fit thick socks into them and stuff my feet into my canyoneers, so your 14's should be fine

Xl should fit you fine

I'm 6'4 and around 190 lbs, 36 inch inseam, size 12 feet and the Kokotat Gore-Tex drysuit XL fits me fine. Favorite piece of kayaking gear by far. Atom

I'm 6'5", 205, 35" inseam, size 13 feet. I wear a stock xl. No problems. I've already worn one suit out and i'm onto my second one. Kokatat warrantied the first one and sent my the second for free!

6'7", 205 lbs, size 14 foot, 36" inseam, and the biggest noncustom one they make fits me okay, except it's a little baggy. The length is just about right though.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the Stohlquist drysuit might also fit well. Their XL drytop fits me quite well.

Immersion Research can add length to the limbs of their Double D Drysuits- You would fit in an XL- with a couple of inches added on.
Or you can try on a XXL- although, when they start getting that big- they are usually a little baggy.

What is your waist size? I am a 32 to 34 I was wondering if it is baggy at all.
