Tailoring foul weather gear
I know what you mean about the straps, and that helps a little. But when the inseam is around 33" and your little stubby legs give you a 28" inseam, you still end up in baggy trousers... heh... I look downright silly in any immersion suit I''ve found. The poor fit itself raises safety issues.
Apparently Henry Loyd offers a size betwen medium and large named ''MB'' which almost works, but no one stocks or sells that size.
With all the folks in foul weather gear on the water I am flummuxed as to why there are no tailor or alteration firms who specialize in this sort of thing. Odds are there are hundreds of them, I just can''t seem to find one (smile). Maybe I''ll try the sport diving/wet suit community. Methinks they might have a solution.
