Fits like a glove

I am 5’5” and average about 117 lbs, my measurements are: 74cm waist; 83 cm chest and 88cm hips. I opted to get the small so I could wear it over my summer work uniform. I am a Tennessee State park ranger and our park has a large number of caves, so I anticipate really putting this suit to the test in this next year. It is advantageous to have an outfit that is durable and water resistant and easy to clean, which is what I am hoping this will be. I had previously been using coveralls, but often found cave dirt soaking all the way through to my uniform. At our park, cave season closes in September so I have a whole winter to wait out before I have a chance to try these out in May. I have to say I’m very pleased with how they fit over my uniform. I can even wear thinner clothing and still be happy with how they fit. The material is a sturdy canvas with a water- resistant inner liner. It is not a Flexible material but enough extra fabric and an elastic band over the waist have been sewn in to keep your movement free. It seems like this is just perfect as I have full range of motion even with a uniform on underneath. Looking forward to putting it through its paces!
Great Cave Suit

This cave suit is great, if a little warm for some purposes. The lining makes it water resistant to a point, which also means sweat traps easily. One note, the measurements (which unfortunately aren't here) are pretty exact as to the suit specifications, so give yourself some room and order a size up if your measurements are exactly what's listed for the size.
