ATGATT! Hopefully they are as protective as you need in case of a mishap. They are out there to get you, regardless how careful you are.

Maybe more difficult, but there are regularly Roadcrafters and other Stich gear for sale on e-bay. If you want to go that route it's still advisable to determine with Aeorstich what sizes you need. Then, in case something suitable comes up, you know and can take advantage of it.

Forget ladies and men.

Gear is gear. Try the "mens" gear as there are more styles and fits for fatter and taller people.

There used to be a forum area here for lady stromtroopers. I'll bet all the threads are still here, but I ca't seem to find them. It had a lot of useful information for lady stromtroopers. One of my favorite troopers was mod for that area, but she is gone too. We used to trade cookie recipes. Well actually she had all the recipes, I just did some baking.

I've done that, and while yes they fit the length, they make mens pants that sling low on a female body. I was CONSTANTLY showing crack. You guys just don't have the butt we do.

If you get a one piece suit (or one the zips together) you won't have that problem:

Women would prefer to wear women gear as men prefer there own gear due to our bodies being completely different in so many ways. Nothing wrong with the desire to find gear that fits properly because all gear is expensive and is only safe if it fits your body well. If you go down in a jacket with sleeves that are to big your arm's are going to be in a world of pain. I can wear a men's small jacket with arm cinches but pants forget it. Love the men's Klim jacket but even with the hip cinch that jacket is pretty heavy. Held gear has tall sizes and top of the line gear. Good luck!

She sounds just like me. LOL

Why don't women's pants have knee and hip protection?
