    Re: flight suit

    Most people say it is somewhat snug, it is definitely not baggy. I guess snug but loose enough so you can move.

    Maybe someone else will post their and give you some more thoughts.

    Snug, but not tight. Remember it was the 70's and early 80's when the films were made and things were worn snug.

    getting a 1 piece coverall type thing on has always been sort of awkward for me, but once it's on, things are ok.

    i don't find mine to be *comfortable*, but i am not restricted in my movements by it. can you sit in it?

    Don't make it so snug that you pop a seam putting it on or moving about. But mine doesn't have too much extra room ... it's fairly snug.

    I found an old airforce flight suit from an army surplus store for around $25, first one i got was snug around crotch/sholders when standing up, sleeves were a bit short at the wrists, was able to take it back and get one about 2 sizes bigger and still a pain to get on, but fit much better, tad bit baggy but once tucked into boots and/or bracers, with being under a vest it should do the job.

    Bobamaker suits are pretty snazzy looking. I'd like to get my hands on one.
