Any advice appreciated.

I'm 6' 2 with a 30" waist. According to the sizing guide for DHB I may need M, L or XL. Anyone of a similar size and shape able to help with the sizing?

Thank you

    I'm 5'10 with 30" waist and the M is fine on me.

    Do you think 4 more inches in height will compromise the fit either around the shoulders or around the ankles?

    I also have dhb trace bib shorts in a Large which come up spot on in size.

    Was wondering the smae thing myself - with bib short sizing, do you go by height (so the straps are comfortable) or waist size?
  • I'm 5'11" and 32" waist and have a pair of DHB 3/4 bibs in a M. If i was an inch taller it would be too tight on the straps.

    6' tall, 32" waist. I take a L.

    Thighs are pretty tight and the groin is very tight, but the shoulder straps and abdominal area are absolutely fine. Once they're on and I'm riding, I dont notice the crotch, but I'd avoid getting off the bike in front of anyone I knew!

    I suspect XL would be fine on the crotch but from the waist up they'd be baggy.

    6ft 2in. 34 waist. Bought the large but had to send them back for an Xlarge. Shoulder straps were cutting in. Xlarge fits perfect. was concerned that the waist would be too big, but they are fine.
    SOLITUDE. It's not for everyone.

    I found they came up really big (or maybe just my short legs). I am 5'11 with a 32" waist and 31" inner leg, went for medium but were far too long and ended up getting a small. I have never bought a small in anything for years so was very surprised.

    I do hate the chunky zip on these!

    Thank you.

    I went for a large but in a different make, can't remember which Northwave? or something. I'll let you know how I get on when they arrive.
