Hi all,
I'm trying to locate a drytop/cag/smock what ever you want to call it.
I'm a bigger than average lad and tried on the Bourke Evo one smock today in the biggest size the 2xl and while it fitted it wasn't great a 3 or 4xl is where I'll be at.
I think the Bourke is a generous cut anyway so here is the size chart

So anyway I'm sure there are lads out there bigger than me so where can I get a big dude dry top?

Cheers
Brendan

You may need to contact Kokotat and see about a custom made outfit.

Charlie Fast (aka Bosab) is about 6' 7" and large girth, purchased a dry suit which fit him. I don't know the brand or size. You can see some pictures of him on the page http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=7276&start=180 Scroll down to the story entitled "Chokoloskee to Flamingo."

I had/have the same problem, and bought a great 2XL padded sailing jacket from UK for under $A60 including postage, and am trying desparately to shrink enough to fit into it comfortably :oops:

Thanks Tony,
Not quite what I was after mate, but glad to hear I'm not on my own.
