Happy Thanksgiving all. My son is 6'4 and 195 pounds and needs a new set of riding gear. He's always worn Troy Lee, but doesn't like the current styles they offer. Can anyone similar in size to my son recommend a gear company they've used/use that we should check out?

Any of the brands will fit fine. I wear Fox.

I’m 6’4” as well. I’ve never had a set of gear that I felt was too short, though my preference had been TLD and Alias.

I'm 6'4 180. I've used fox gear in the past and recently bought a set of Alias gear and love it. I'm sure some brands may have a little more length to their pants or sleeves but lets face it, we're 6'4.

6'4" as well. I currently have a set of tld, Fly, and Thor. Only issue I found with the 3 was the Thor was a touch short on the sleeves

I'm 6'3 185lbs and every set of gear I've ever had, the jerseys even in XXL the sleeves were always too short by about 3"

I am 6’3 and have had great luck with the alias gear. No complaints length wise.

Another Alias gear fan here. So far, I have no complaints about their products.

6’4 here and Alias is the best fitting I have found.

Fox 360 is good but is hot.

I also have Answers new Trinity gear and it fits ok but is extremely thin- to the point I wouldn’t recommend it for bigger guys or your average weekend warrior.

6’3” 200 lbs here. Get the newer stretchy gear that fox or shift makes (airline for fox and blueline for shift). This gear is meant to fit tight so you can get an xxl jersey and it will still fit tight whopile giving a little extra in the arms. The pants stretch so when they arent exactly position correctly (you know what i mean.....the lower part of the pant gets pulled up to your calf) they have some give.

Fox airline or shift blue label. Also you can get the blue lable pants with the white lable jersey and just go up a dixe and deal with the baginess
