Gravity Is Yer Friend
When you ask about ...
... gear for larger riders, clothing wise, you should give measurments rather then weight and hight. I say this because we are all different with different measurements. I got to thinking about this while reading the question about shin protection.
I am 6'2" at 290lbs, a friend of mine is the same hight and weight but are builds are different. My shins are 19 1/2" in circumference and his are 16" (yeah he has got them chicken legs ). My chest is 54" where his is 47". So basically we can not wear the same gear because of that. So if someone says these (insert clothing/protection)will fit because we are the same hight is not always going to be acurate.
i agree 100% and to the guys who say..."I need some good fitting gear for a big guy, im 200 lbs"...gear isnt hard to find and you arent big til you top 300.
I agree with your point, however, sometimes there are brands that cater to or provide additional sizes for anyone outside the standard adult male size spectrum, such as ourselves.
