I am 5 11", weigh 230, waist 42, hips 47 (at this time), chest 45, I am having a hard time finding a wet suit that fits. I tried a hyperflex 2xxl and could not stretch the upper part over me. Any suggestions? do I have to go custom? it seems as the sizes go up so does the length. Im looking for a 4/3 or 5/3 full for surfing. thanks

Hi Rick, a variety of sizes is very limited on multi thickness suits. I've found a Pinnacle 5mm 2xl short that looks like it would work for you. The only catch is that it's a 5mm all around.
on hyperflex 5/4mm cyclone2 wetsuit is listed as a 5/4 but the details have it as a 4/3 ive seen this on a few sites looking at this hyperflex suits. is it that the manufactured has rated it a 5/4 based on the overall warmth and technology but the material is technical a 4/3?
