Hi everybody, this is my first post. I purchased a spirit Halloween pack, and ours frame, some upgrade parts off eBay etc. I am looking for a flight suit. I am 5 foot 11, about 310 pounds. I have like a 58 inch chest. I’m having a very hard time finding a flight suit, does anyone have any recommendations or possibly a link to where I could purchase one ? Also looking for a pistol belt, that will fit me, probably 52 inch? Any help would be greatly appreciated

No idea on the the suit, but GBFans Shop recommends hooking 2 pistol belts together for larger waists.

Don't know if anyone makes a flight suit in the size you are needing. I can relate though (54 inch chest myself) but as an alternative Red Kap does make larger size coveralls. Granted not the flight suit but I have several pairs for various kits and they are very comfortable. Even takes dye well as I took a white pair and dyed them flamingo pink for my wife. As above mentioned two pistol belts linked together work and the link can be hidden with gear.

I am a similar build to you but keep more of my weight in my stomach so a slightly smaller chest, somewhere around 54.
I got the 3x Truspec and it fits fine, a little snug in the stomach when I sit down though.
As I said, my chest is smaller, stomach a bit bigger and I would say, 4-5 inches to spare in the chest. I can stick my hand in sideways without much resistance.
I would say a 3x truspec should be just big enough, though it might be a bit tight.

As for the belt, I got 2, though I did something a bit different with them. Instead of sizing them separately I kind of combined them.
I took one belt and extended it to the maximum length, then took the other and over shortened it, so that the underside was longer than the over side.
Then I combined them so that the lower side connected to the... you know what I'll just show you.

Yeah, basically that, it brings the connection towards the side so that you can hang the gloves over it and hide it.
I use one of the belt fobs to keep hook from slipping when not wearing it and then a bit of string or clear tape on the "buckle" just so it doesn't fall apart when putting it on.

I'm 6'10" 305lbs. I ended up going with a custom G&B Suit as absolutely nothing out there is made for dudes my size.

On the belt front - the GB2 belt fits bigger dudes pretty well - I've got a 42" waist and the belt should be good to 58".

I’m 6”1 289. I’ve just bought the flight suit they sell right here in a 3XL I did need a second belt. Plenty of room in the stomach arms and legs.
