Is there a size difference in caving suits?
CanyonZone has, among other things, the caving under suits and over suits / overalls from Adventure Vertical (AV) and Landjoff. In terms of fit, the AV suits are based on the southern European / French physique of the speleologists. These are just a lot slimmer than the northern European physique / Dutch and Belgians. The Landjoff suits, manufactured in Bulgaria, are more based on a northern European physique.
A tailor made caving suit can be an option if your legs / arms really do turn out to be a lot shorter / longer than standard lengths used.
The same applies to an undersuit. AV suits are tighter. A few options for your build and height could be the Rodcle and Warmbac undersuits.
It is best to try on caving (under) suits to see what best suits your build and height.
The above mainly applies to persons from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany. The above is less applicable to persons outside Europe.
The size tables of various brands carried by Canyonzone are included in the various sections.
An option is that CanyonZone can see which (under) suits are in stock and send them to you to try on at home. If there is something that fits well, you can keep it, otherwise it is returned with the same box.
This option can be coordinated if you cannot (come) fit and is probably cheaper than driving back and forth.
