overstock foulies

hey, does anyone know how the sizing on the overstock foulies runs? I'm not sure if I should get a medium or a large, and was wondering if anyone that has received a set could let me know about the sizing.
Thanks!

My bad!

I believed the upc code told the story of where things were made. And it came back as a German origin. Perhaps another urban myth exposed.

Still an awesome buy!

See if this helps.....I'm 6'3"/215# and the xl is very roomy. Son is 6'2"/200 and the medium works, but is on the smallish side. If I was getting it specifically for him or me, would go Large.

So, I think it fits slightly big. Sized for typical European build, not Asian.

$85 for jacket AND bibs! I was a little skeptical at first, but figured I couldn't lose. I just got them in yesterday and they are actually very nice quality.
Now out of stock

Re: Foulies - anything other than Musto worthwhile?

You did reply to a year old through, so I'm not surprised that they are out of stock.

Since I'm hear I'll say that if you are buying a drysuit that you should get a Kokatat Goretex suit. They have the best warranty in the world and keep supporting and fixing them nearly forever. They are primarily made for kayaking, but I use mine for sailing as "the **** hit the fan" foul weather gear and it works very well.

Re: Foulies - anything other than Musto worthwhile?

My Henri Lloyd Ocean Racer jacket and bib trouses were bought in 1988 after cheaper stuff failed to keep me warm and dry.

Most expensive clothes I ever bought but also cheaper than all the other foulweather gear if you look at how long they have lasted. Yup I am still wearing them.

Mind you not often as I sail in the Caribbean.

Bummer. I still have them. Though in all the racing I've done, I've only used the jacket once I think.

Still, they are great - insanely great for the price.

"My Henri Lloyd Ocean Racer jacket and bib trouses were bought in 1988 after cheaper stuff failed to keep me warm and dry."
Same here, although as I recall the bib pants and jacket are from different lines, they are the same classic bright yellow, the year before "neon" was brought out. The color is now rather gray compared to what bright yellow used to be, and I'm afraid that even after soaking with ArmorAll one of these days the plastic is just going to crack because it feels stiffer than I remember.
Still, I trust it in extreme weather more than I trust my beloved newer GoreTex. Which wins hands-down in heat and humidity.
