Follow Up To My Trisuit Thread

Here's an FYI for everyone that read through my trisuit thread. I wound up ordering that Orca Distance suit and it arrived yesterday. I wanted to relate to you some sizing information, I'm tall and thin, so, I was kind of torn between ordering one size up than what my measurements suggested based on chest/waist/hips in an effort to accomodate my extra height, or stick with exactly what the size chart recommends (no I couldn't try on locally, none of the shops in town have anything on the shelf worth having). I was cautious that ordering a size larger might make it too loose, boy was I wrong. The suit turns out to fit just right, in fact, I would even go as far as to say that I could have ordered even ANOTHER size larger and it would have fit just fine.
The moral of the story is, I suppose, that there's some wiggle room when determining your size requirements for these clothes.

Yup. But not like bike jersey pockets, this one's invisible, tight, and hopefully won't gulp water.
