Default Wetsuit for tall, skinny, long body man

Hi. I am having trouble finding a wetsuit that fits me. I am 6’3”, 84kg (32” inseam) but with a very long body. I’ve tried suits from HUUB, Zone3 and Zoot but none fit.

Can anyone recommend a brand or a specific suit that is particularly long in the body? Thanks

Try HEAD "long" or "tall".

Slim, loooong-bodied female here.

I was recommended HEAD SLO by a dealer. 1.83m (6') tall, 72kg (159 lbs), with a "boy" body (no hips, no nothing) and the SLO fits like a glove. Not only in the torso, but the only thing that goes all the way to my ankles and wrists as well.

Nothing else fits, especially anything female cut. Every other suit was like a drum membrane across my low back -- way too short for my upper body. If something was somehow long enough, it was baggy everywhere else.

SLO for me. The next size up, MLO would likely fit you.

Default 2 piece wetsuit

Hello!

I had the same problem and got a 2 piece wetsuit from Orca: https://www.orca.com/int-en/wetsuits/openwater/list/

You can choose the size of the upper and lower part to make a perfect fit. It's the first wetsuit I have that I don't feel at all when in the water. Before I would always get a pull back from the suit.
