    Looks like the Ultrabreeze will fit you.

    I have the exact same build and decided to go with a jacket. No need to worry about the height then. I got the vented suit from mannlake and have been happy with it.

    I got the double x.

    As I am 6'5" 230 lbs I had the same problem, I would never wear a suit, to hard to get into and way too hot. A jacket with heavy jeans is the only way to go. My old jacket was a regular canvas jacket, Xl and it was very good at getting me many butt-crack stings. My new Mann Lake vented XXL jacket is much better but the zipper broke the first day in use. They are sending another as their customer service is aw-sum. If I could do it over I would spend the extra money for a Ultra-Breeze suit, the zippers on the Mann Lake suits are cheezy feeling.

    I have the Ultrabreeze jacket that my wife got me about 4 years ago and saving for a suit. I'm 6'3" and vary 260-380 lbs. Made of pretty sturdy stuff.
