We found these to be spot on with the above chart. Wearing just a pair of jeans and a t-shirt underneath, our model was able to get in and out comfortably.
Info about the last size small suit for sale here: This suit was sold and then returned so we had our two customer service people try it on to see about the fit. One guy is average height and one is tall… about 6’2”, and the suit fit both fine. So we wanted to say that this suit, even in a small, fits an average to taller person best.
Our Two Cents
This new one piece textile suit from Joe Rocket is aptly named, it’s ready for whatever you can dish out. The Survivor Suit is an all weather, adventure style riding suit that has a thoughtful design. Perfect for touring or even commuting, this suit is packed with features. First up is the climate control. The Survivor has a full length insulated liner, which should keep you quite warm in colder weather. The liner is also one piece, and secures in the suit with a zipper around the torso portion, Velcro at the sleeve cuffs, and snaps keep the legs in place (so that it doesn’t pull out when you are taking the suit off). In warmer weather, this one piece suit has a rather innovative ventilation system. Behind the main zipper is Joe Rocket’s patented Big Air System. Simply unzip the main zipper to reveal mesh material which seems like it would allow a very good amount of air into the suit. Then there are two rear exit vents which allow hot air to escape. Caught in the rain? The Survivor suit claims to be 100% waterproof, and the (also waterproof) main zipper has a double storm flap to make extra sure unwanted air and water do not enter the suit. One nice feature of the storm flap, the snaps used to close it can also be used to hold it open and out of the way when using the Big Air Vent. Adjustability: The Survivor suit has Sure Fit™ Velcro straps just under the arms (for the chest), at the waist, on the upper legs, and Velcro closures at the ankles. There are also upper and lower arm snap take ups. All of these adjustments work together to reduce drag and flapping in the wind, as well as keep the armor securely in the right place. Speaking of armor, the Survivor suit includes CE approved armor for the shoulders, elbows, and knees, as well as a dual density foam back pad, all of which is removable. There are two cargo pockets on the upper left leg, both have cargo flaps and waterproof zippers, while the pocket on the upper right of the torso has the cargo flap, but just a regular zipper on that one (not sure why). There is also a zippered document pocket on the interior of the suit. Full length leg zippers on both the suit and the liner, as well as the long main zipper on the front, make this suit fairly easy to get into and take off, but be sure to order appropriately if you plan to wear street clothes underneath. There are nice large reflective panels down the back of the torso, on the upper sleeves, and on the lower legs; a very nice addition for night time riding. Lastly, the insides of the ankle area are covered with a melt resistant fabric, which is nice.
