    Large /Tall motorcycle clothing & boots

    Hi all, I'm looking for help and advice. I am 6'3" (191 cm) tall and weigh 180 lbs (82 kg). I also wear size 15 (us) shoes (49-50 Eu).

    After numerous attempts, I was able to obtain a size 42 Tall Klim Overland Gore-tex pairs of pants and I have an Aerostitch jacket which I'm happy with. As I get older and gain more volume above my waist my options for a quality jacket are getting smaller all the time, especially with long arms.

    I've ordered a pair of Forma Adventure boots, size 49 and and a pair of Sidi Gore-tex boots, both which had to be returned because they were too small. Right now I use gore-tex hiking book but I am continually looking for waterproof motorcycle boots.

    I noticed there are tall and large riders on this forum and I'm interested in finding out where you access your motorcycle apparels and what you thing of what you wear.   Thanks.

    Sorry Maritimer can't help. and I thought my 46 shoes were big!
    Maybe big Bob from down under has a few suggestions?
    Good luck with your search

    I wear a US size 14 and like the TCX X-Five Evo boots.  Good fit and more roomy than most others I've tried.  Hope that helps.

    Thanks, I'll check them out. I was also looking recently at Daytona Gore-tex boots. Some of the reviews indicated they fit a size bigger!

    Thanks again,

    Louis

    I see you’re in Canada but maybe worth contacting Altberg, they’re a very highly rated boot manufacturer here in the UK.  Think they may do a made to measure service.

    The 49 forma size worked for me.  They do list a 50 on their size chart but I cannot find a model in that size.  I had to order mine because they only carried up to the 48 in the USA at the time.

    I can recommend a few clothing items that have worked really well for my mixed weather riding.

    I am the same height as you as just under 180lbs with a 34 inch inseam and 32 inch pant waist.

    I wear a large size Olympia Dakar jacket that fits really well and works perfectly.

    I wear a M/L size Olympia New Horizon rain jacket that works great worn over the Dakar jacket with liners.

    I wear a Olympia Airglide overpants and size 34 fits well over a pair of jeans or other normal pants.  It is also long enough and fits over the adventure boots.
