How long do they last?
Depends on how hard you are on them. I used my first one for about 8 years but then it was only for a couple of days each year.It's Tyvek so it's pretty tear resistant.
It depends on what job you are doing and how careful you are to avoid tearing the suit. For general composite work I go through 1-2 per week. More would be required for say, grinding, trimming, bottom work or sandblasting, etc...
I wore mine to finish the small wooden sailboat i built--8 coats of varnish and 5 coats of bottom paint. then i worn them to re-stain the cedar siding on my lake home. Same suit. Excellent product.
It depends on the application and amount of use..... I use mine to do fiberglass work on my skiff. I use it about 2-3 times/year and it's still going strong 2+ years later.....
I use mine for several projects. They can tear easily and if you do a lot of sanding they can get pretty dirty. It is really a matter of how much paint, dust, epoxy you get on them. If you are grinding fiberglass you may want to sacrifice that suit at the end of the project. In the summer time you can also sweat enough that the inside of the suit might not be so pleasant.
what size is a large, I where large shirts, will this large suit fit me?
yes..these suits were very ample in size
No the large feels like a med
The large is pretty large...and designed to fit over your clothes and even a light jacket. I thinkit will fit unless you are over 6ft....if so go up to XL.
Yes it will fit if however you are wearingHeavy clothes underneath or perhaps a thick long sleeve work shirt you may prefer one size bigger
How do I determine which size to buy?
Buy a bit large is my recommendation. Large is most common size we sell, if you are 6' tall +, go XL as minimum. These are a treated paper/cotton suit, so if it's too small you will split crotch seam as you move about. You will also be wearing this over clothing so allow room to move.
I'm about 5'10", 175 lbs. and am comfortable in a Large. These suits have plenty of extra space, so I could probably even fit in a medium, but there would be some binding at the shoulders. You can always fit in the next size up as well - all the suits are bulky, so when I wear an XL, it's just a bit bulkier than the L and the crotch is about halfway to my knees.
These are great!
Refinishing floors in a 1985 Grand Banks. The suit is lightweight and provides great protection from the sawdust. It is roomy and very comfortable.
Best suit against poison oak
This suit is great for protection against poison oak oils while eradicating the pesky plants in my landscape. Using care while removing the suit after the job is done is important, too. This suit has saved my from weeks of agony as compared to a friend who tried to be careful and not touch the poison oak we were removing. Poor him. I offered the spare suit I had, but he would not listen. Great for painting protection, too.

The way to go when doing messy work
The full paper suit with hood really does the job when it comes to keeping bad stuff off your clothes and skin. Bottom paint drips, or bottom paint dust is best kept off your skin. The professionals use these suits for a reason. Work like a professional and stay clean like one. Don't for get safety glasses and a good respirator.
