    So I'm going to be attending my first track day in February. The thing is, is that I can't find a suit for the life of me. I'm 6'3 and weigh 290 lbs. Where can I get a suit for taller and bigger people?

    You might have to look into having one made custom fit. They really aren't that much more than a mid range, rack sized suit.

    Possibly a company name as well. Only company that I know of is just Comet, but I've heard they take forever and also mess up a lot.

    I'd go with ONE-X. Hit up Tulio at +1(404)925-7340. There's a sale going on and I found that on his facebook. Lots of people around the paddock are in their suits now and they seem satisfied.

    You more than likely will have to go custom. I had one made by Syed Leathers. Was $1200.

    I'm 6'4" 250 and fit in a 50/60 technic suit.
    Your size for a one piece might need custom as I'm really squeezing into the suit with back and chest protector.
    A two piece works for novice, and is what I use when I ride on the street.
    That allows for pants that fit, a coat that fits, not as good as a one piece but its one solution.

    OH, welcome to track days, let the addiction begin. LOL.

    I've always been size challenged as well. I got a custom SYED suit made more years ago than I should admit. I make it a point to clean and condition it regularly and it I has held up great - including being crash tested 3 times. My suit isn't very stylish but I've been very pleased with the safety and durability.

    I have an AGV that I wore a while. Good condition. I'm too short for it and I wore it when I was about 270 lbs. It would probably fit you. For sale $250. Message me if interested.

    I ended up going with an ACT custom for my most recent suit. It's awesome. You won't find anything off the rack, so it's just easier to go custom. Else you spend $600-800 for a good clearance suit and you still pay $200-$300 for alterations.
