I liked you guys on Facebook. I'm not on there much these days but, we'll see if our paths cross.

I don't currently have any supplies for pack building. I'm the "save up for everything" kind of guy and have my eyes on a particular pack shell which is not of the frugal variety.

So I have my Last Name Patch, No Ghost Patch, and a 48L Nomex CWU 27P Tan on their way. BUT, I wondering if I ordered the wrong size do to my neck size.

My Sizing:
Chest - 47 inches
Hips - 48 inches
Sleeve Inseam - 21 inches
Leg Inseam - 28 Inches

My Neck is 18 Inches, Should I had gotten a 50L?

Neck shouldn't be a huge issue as you don't need to zip the suit all the way up.

I'm curious why u went with the long though if your leg inseam is only 28".

The long measurements are

48 Long
Chest- 26 3/8"
Hip- 27 1/2"
Sleeve Inseam- 25"
Leg Inseam- 33"

Regular are

48 Regular
Chest- 26 3/8"
Hip- 27 1/2"
Sleeve Inseam- 23 1/2"
Leg Inseam- 31"

And short are

48 Short
Chest- 26 3/8"
Hip- 27 3/8"
Sleeve Inseam- 22"
Leg Inseam- 29"

I'm 6'4" and wear a 46L and it fits me perfectly.

Since you've already ordered it it'll make no difference now. Get it try it on and if it's too tight / long or what have you, just send it back for a better fitting suit. It's the main portion of the uniform so just make sure you are comfortable in it and that it fits right and you'll be golden.

Keep us up to date on how it works out.

Ok Cool. Thank-You. I was getting worried for a bit there.

The event at the casino was great and I hope they have it again next year. It was nice bumping into a fellow "Ghostbuster" Tom from Rhode Island who also has a scratch built pack. We compared notes in between photo "sessions" people were lined up to get their pictures taken with us. It was the craziest thing I have ever experienced. I don't think I stood still for longer than 30 seconds before being asked to pose for another shot.

Even when we were packing up in the parking garage I had 2 kids run over to check out the pack and get pictures taken and tiredly (but in good nature of course) donned the pack one more time. I really need to get started on that lightweight all aluminum pack one of these days..
