Below is sizing information as supplied by Joe Rocket. We feel the chart accurately reflects the suit’s fit. Sizing on these suits is roomy as compared to most other styles. Our experience has been that most suits will fit more snugly than a corresponding size jacket and many people would have to go up in size, but these new suits are fitting pretty true to the stated chest size. They are also pretty roomy through the arms and shoulders, so those with some muscle should find them comfortable. So, you can pick a suit size based upon your chest measurement or your coat size if you know it. And check to make sure that your waist size is not too large for the suit—otherwise you’ll have to go with a larger suit to accommodate the waist. These suits also come in larger sizes (check the drop down menu below for sizes/colors) up to 56. Subtract about 6 inches from the suit’s chest size to get an idea of maximum belly size.

Our Two Cents
The GPX Type R combines great construction, leather and armor in an affordable package. And the styling of this suit will appeal to many riders. The suits come complete with CE approved “turtle shell” type armor in the shoulders, elbows and knees, and include foam protectors in the back and hips. The suit’s construction includes fabric panels in the underarm (down to the forearm), crotch/thigh and behind the knees. These fabric panels help improve the fit and give you freedom of motion on the bike. I like the thickness of the leather and the seam construction in these suits. Joe Rocket has had some past problems with seam construction, but these seams are sewn to protect at least one layer of stitching from the abrasion of the pavement. This seam design helps prevent blowouts in a fall. I also like how the suits fit. They are very comfortable right out of the box. The neck design is good too—just a simple roll of neoprene material that does not stand up and should not interfere with the helmet when head checking. The two piece construction of this suit allows you to use the jacket alone or as a full suit. Some 2pc suits have a pretty short torso jacket but this suit’s jacket is cut longer, so I think you’ll enjoy the ability to use the jacket by itself. Joe Rocket offers an upgrade for the foam back protector that is supplied as standard with this suit. Take the link below for more information.
