I had the tiez Lombard. if you want a one piece suit, it can't be beat. he will make a custom for you too for maybe $100 extra.

I have the Phantom and find it is simply too hot to wear in all but very cold temps. If there is a chance the temps will hit 75, I don't want to be in it. I looked at the Joe Rocket Survivor and the Tourmaster Centurion when my Son wanted a suit. We bought the Centurion and it is well made, waterproof and much better ventilated than the Phantom. BUT....it sits around most of the time not being used. Don't have any input on the other suits for you.

At your size a one piece suit will be very hard to get the right fit. Don't overlook a two piece suit with waterproof liners. Normally the one piece suits are easier/faster to put on but when you have a one piece liner I think it gets pretty complicated.

There is no perfect answer. I like a waterproof jacket and pants for winter and I use the heated gear. The bulkier winter stuff is easier to put on in tow piece format and being able to take out one or both liners and still be waterproof is nice.

Look for a lightly used Roadcrafter on fleabay. That's how I bought mine and never looked back. Very easy to put on over your street clothing.
