    you're better off going in to a dealer and trying some on, cause if you have a 50-50 chance, you're going to be wrong 90% of the time :(

    It looks like you will be fine with the XL, but the problem you might run into is the fit around your thighs. While the waist can be adjusted with the belt, and mine have a laced up section in the rear, if the thighs are too tight you won't get them on. I would try several dealers to see how they really fit.

    Like Don said, the thighs are the important part. I weighed 180 when I bought my chaps. I was able to let the waist out to accommodate 225, but I had to get help starting the zippers on my legs. :bigsmiley25:
