Call simpson direct. I think you can order a custom suit. I paid 550 for mine.

If he is looking for a budget suit, I started out in a racequip suit. 2 pc. I am a little over 6'4" and a heck of a lot heavier than your friend. Get ahold of Speedway, or your local dealer. I live in Minnesota and got mine from Lou Fegers Racing equip. But I know Speedway supplies them as well.

Get the double layer though, not the single.

this is one place where I would spend a little extra money. if you get burned, you can throw away alot for a little.

The guys are right, at least double layer is the only way to go. Try:
I just picked up a new suit from them a couple months ago & love it...I'm 6'3".
