    Golem Gear heated vest - what size?

    Hi everyone, I'm thinking of ordering a golem gear heated vest soon. I'm 189 cm (6 ft 2) tall and lean. What size vest would you recommend - the L or XL size? Is the XL size just longer or is it also wider. I'm aware that I need it to be long enough to reach well down my torso but am wondering if I get the XL whether it will be snug enough??? Thoughts please from people who own them?

    I'm 5-10 @ 185 & wear a L. Waist goes between 36 & 38, with chest 44. It goes on under your thermals, over a thin shirt (I wear a dryfit t-shirt under it). Jakob recommended that size for me.

    It's snug - it's supposed to be for contact -but all of the Velcro on the waist tabs mate so as not to snag my fleece. Used it up to 7 hours on a single cave dive and never knew it was there - other than the heat at deco. Got a couple hundred dives on it and never thought about getting a larger one.

    But, that's just me.

    Rebreathers are something that we have to go to in order to dive the way we want to dive. They are not something we go to for any other reason.

    Get the Bigest one Jakob sells, I have the XL (5'6) and my friend has the L (5'11) and his is tiny in comparison (and small on me) to the XL and I think the XL has one more heating pad in the Vest too (more is better)

    I'm 6ft, and the L was like a bib. XL is perfect.

    LOLA actually makes even a larger size.
