    Hi! All those that have the UltraBreeze suits, what size suit would you order if you are 5'6" and 180#? jean size is 34W x 32L.... I was told a medium, do you all agree? I was originally leaning towards a large.... I don't like tight fitting but I don't want it to be swimming on me either....

    Thanks in advance.

    I would go for the large. If my memory serves me right, Bill always said to order one size larger than you normally wear, because the ultra-breeze ran a bit smaller then normal.

    I am 5'8" and 165. Also, 34w x 32L. My large Ultrabreeze is too big although it's tollerable. My next one will be a medium. Greatest bee suit ever.

    Hi - I'm a female, 5'7", 132 pounds - and there is plenty of room in a medium. The length would certainly be correct for you, and a 34" waist is average. I got my husband a cheaper, cloth suit in case he wants to watch or assist - he is your size, weight, and yes, 34" waist - and he fit fine into a medium cloth suit from Mann Lake. Hope this helps somewhat. Good Luck.
