Majefski -

First you need to determine a brand. Here are the top 3:

Metal (www.elitefts.com)

Inzer (www.inzernet.com)

Titan (www.titansupport.com)

Once you have decided which brand you would like to purchase then you can contact the places that sell them over the phone for assistance with sizing.

The most popular suits right now are probably the Metal King Pro Deadlifter and the Inzer Max DL.

You also need to let us know wether you pull conventional or sumo. With a sumo stance you will get more carryover from a squat suit than from a deadlift suit.

I recommend doing some research online and then if you have any specific questions there are plenty of experts here who can help you to make your final selection or assist you with sizing once you have picked a suit.

I agree Ken is very, very good to work with. One of the best in my opinion.

I edited the title of the thread to include the suit that you are looking for information on.

There are some Inzer lifters on here but I personally have never used a max DL or a fusion. I do have one of the old "Champion" suits but they are sized differently.

I lift with the Inzer max DL and am located in Austin (not that location matters)....It seems to size pretty close to my trex (if that helps)...

I've got a Fusion. I've never used it in a meet though, only for a half a dozen workouts in the gym. It has to have the absolute tightest legs of any suit I've ever put on. Like so tight the seams cut tight. The rest of the suit fits fine--ie hips etc. Its not that difficult to get into either, except for the leg seams. Sizing wise, this suit is the same as the TRX that I use. Again, the hips fit fine, its just the legs are ridiculously tight.

I have mixed feelings about that suit. I pull sumo/modified sumo, so that might be part of the problem. The biggest problem area was right across the top of my thighs when I pulled myself down to the bar to get setup to pull.

The Metal King Pro Deadlifter is a good suit for Conventional.

I mis-spoke earlier (hey, I'm an Aggie...). I have a Fusion with velcro straps. Have used it in 2 meets recently (conventional)...If you have velcro, loosen the straps to get down easier (that's what i did)...fyi, legs are tight on mine as well...have the bite marks on the top of my thighs to prove it....Overall, I'm still trying to figure it out as well, so I might not be the best source for "proper use".....
