    Xcel Wetsuit Size

    Anyone a similar size...short and stocky. I'm 5'7", 165lbs. I'm wondering what is the best fit in Xcel suits for my size. I've seen their size chart and appear to be in between many sized. I'd appreciate a suggestion from anyone who is a similar size and has found a good fit.

    P.S. Assume i don't have the luxury of going to a shop to try on a bunch of suits.

    usually chart sizes are pretty true to fit. I am 6'0 175 and just bought a large billabong foil '11 5 4 3 and it fits perfect. For your size i would have to say medium cause in my opinion medium small would be too tight and restrictive.

    I'm 5'9" 170 and I'm a LS in Xcel. LS is 5'7" - 5'9" 170 - 175 so I guess they are pretty true to size.

    I'm 5'7" and 185, and I wear a XLS in Xcel. You should be fine in a LS.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've only owned Oneills and Xcels (fulltime Xcels now), but Xcels usually run smaller and shorter than others, so I would say an LS would be perfect for you too.

    5'7, 161. I only buy xcel suits size LS. good fit. 4/3, 5/4. mediums are too tight around the chest,shoulders. Expect that a suit will loosen up over time
