I'm hoping this will help both the older and newer guys here when they are looking for a new flight suit and are not sure what size to get, lengths, etc. If anyone finds anything inaccurate, wrong, misleading, and/or feels something needs to be added, please let me know so I can update when needed. :cool:

Nomex CMU-27/P Flight Suit Size Chart

Size Measurements needed:
Chest- Measurement of the largest part of your chest, usually right under your armpits, then divide by 2.
Hip- Measurement of your hips, not waist,then divide by 2.
Sleeve Inseam- Measurement from your armpit to your cuff.
Leg Inseam- Measurement from your crotch to your cuff.

Side Notes:
- Please remember Nomex is a type of material, not a brand, so sizes may be slightly different. Also, these are sizes for a brand new suit as well, so a used suit may also be slightly smaller too.
- Different companies produce nomex suits, so sizes will vary. This is just an estimated measurement of what suit should fit you best.

Your tru-spec sizing seems off to me
I used this chart when I bought from them and my Large fits me really comfortably even with clothes under it

You are right. I'm using the sizing from http://www.galls.com/TSAFF/style.html?assort=general_catalog&style=JS004 and I have it as waist size rather chest. Changed to be more accurate.

Yeah, that's the thing about Rothco (besides the cheap quality of their merchandise) is that there's no long sizes. So tall guys like me can't get a flight suit from them (and a good thing too!)

A 42 or 44 should fit the best, depending on how long you want your sleeves and/or leg length to be.

Hiya, Im a tall/skinny guy about to get a Tru-Spec suit (6'2", ~155 lbs).
My measurements say I should get a medium long, but should I go a size up? Im not really sure what that bold part means. Thanks!

I would suggest a size up especially if you are gonna wear clothes under it. I would suggest that on all versions, the suits in the movie were lose fitting.

One should also note that Nomex isn't a precise branding, it's a material type. You will find sizes vary from individual manufacturing houses and companies.

Thanks for posting this. I already had to return one Nomex flight suit because it was rather tight around the midsection. In the end, I think I'll be going with a Tru-Spec, but this guide has definitely helped me be absolutely certain about the size to order.

So, just for clarification, if I'm a 37 1/2 inch chest, I should get a large, not a medium?

If you're talking Tru-Spec sizing, I would say a large would be best. If you meant Rothco, I would stick with a medium, those suits tend to be very baggy... they make a skinny guy like me look fat. :sigh:

Wait, so a 48R in the nomex would fit a chest that was about 53" all the way around? My chest is 45-46 inches in circumference at the widest bit under my arm pits. Are you saying I should go with a 40R or 42R in the nomex? I've seen descriptions that sound like a 46R would fit a 46" circumference chest.

You are better off with the 48R IMO. You'll need the extra inches for any clothes you wear underneath your suit and the fact that they need to be alil on the baggy side (but not too much) if you are going for a screen accurate look.

Found this one and bought it, then noticed the location.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWAX:IT

Is it possible to find out if that's captainamerica? Doesn't seem to be, the entire description is done differently than any of the stuff listed under the actual captainamerica username, just want to make sure.

It's not captain america. . . . he doesnt sell accurate suits like this LoL!

thats the real deal right there.

Since that is a stock picture, I would have asked for pics of the actual suit before I bought it, just to be safe.

Make sure you post pics when you get it :cool:

I just purchased a Nomex suit size 34S. I hope its the right size for me.
If not, I'll throw it in here and sell it for the same price I paid, to anyone here who can fit in it.

Will do. Never thought to ask for pics, it's listed as "new with tags." He's had a few negs over the past year over some of his exam books, but it looks like everyone who's bought a flight suit from him has been happy.

How much do these usually "shrink"? I saw above that used suits may be slightly smaller. I've purchased a 48R on ebay, but according to measuring myself right now, my measurements are:

Chest: 23" (46" total circumference/2)
Hips: 23" (46" total Circumference/2)
Sleeve Inseam: 21"
Leg inseam: 29"

I've ordered the 48R on the advice of RuBain, but the more I look at those numbers, if those are indeed accurate (and I don't doubt it), the 48R looks WAY too big. However, while the inseam measurements appear to be the same inm the listing, the listing appears to say that this suit will fit a 47-48" chest, which would be about right and give me a little breathing room. I might be able to switch it with the same dealer for a 42S, which MIGHT be just a tad too small.

Here's the listing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWNX:IT


Any help guys?

Not sure if this helps your decision at all, but my personal measurements would be very similar to a 34R. I purchased a used 38R and fits alil' baggy with pants and a shirt on. I've washed mine a few times already and it hasn't shrunk. I probably could have went with a 42R but I had the same issue as you thinking I may have ordered too large.

If I were you, I would at least wait until the 48R comes and try it on w/ clothes on. This way, if it doesn't fit you can return it and you'll have a better understanding on what size you would actually need.

That's my plan. For the record, I wasn't calling you out over it or anything, I just held the tape measure around myself at the measurements listed for a 48R and they seemed HUGE. The seller has a return policy so I'm not too worried, and worst case scenario I can probably sell it some someone here at a decent price.

It's cool. I honestly didn't think I'd done anything to offend, nor did I get the impression you were offended, I just didn't want to waltz onto the boards and within two weeks start acting like an ass. Now if some of this stuff would just GET HERE so I'd know what fits! :lol:

i am exactly like this guy 37 1/2 chest....but....I measured myself with my clothes ON. LOL

T-shirt and jean shorts

So, with that said, should I go Large like RuBain? PLus I'm on the LOW end of that range which is 37 ( in 37 to 41)

I was wondering because maybe I wont need togo up an extra size (large) because I lready measured with clothes on?

I made a CWU-27/P size chart based on the numbers in the first post and sizing info at a website that sells new CWU-27/P (doubling those numbers that were indicated as being half the actual number). Corrections are welcome.

Image

From this chart you can visualize the trends in sizing:
  • The Chest is 4 3/4" more than the Size.
  • The Chest increases 2" in lockstep from one size to the next.
  • There is no difference in Chest between Short, Regular, and Long.
  • The Hip increases 2", sometimes 2 1/4" from one size to the next.
  • With only two exceptions in Sizes 34 and 48, the Hip does not change between Short, Regular, and Long, and when it does change for those two sizes, it's only a 1/4" difference.
  • The Sleeve increases 1/8" from one size to the next.
  • The Sleeve increases in 1 1/2" increments from Short to Regular to Long.
