    one suit for sumo puller and close squats?

    i read around saying someone who pulls sumo and squats wide can use one suit. i pull sumo and squat medium/shoulder stance, would i get any carryover toward my sumo pull if i wore a squat suit made for close stance?
    what are some recommendations for a squat suit that fits my approach?

    I don't know very much at all about equipment but I would think that you wouldn't be able to use the same suit for both. Squat suits are cut differently for narrow and wide stances.

    I agree with deeder. I just don't think you're going to find it. If you have to make a choice, I'd go with a squat suit simply because you really don't get that much out of a deadlift suit.

    I've never used Titan but have heard good things. I prefer Metal but then again, it's the only brand I've ever used.

    Wide stance squat + sumo deadlift = wide stance squat suit

    narrow stance squat = narrow stance suit, sumo deadlift = narrow stance suit put on backwards

    I've used several different brands, Metal is the best by FAR!
