I "misspoke" earlier. I meant to say I wear a ballistic jersey, not jacket, under the suit.

A Large would fit your height and maybe your weight. I'm 180lbs. The suit has Velcro waistbands on either side and mine are loosened about halfway to accommodate the ballistic jersey.

Cortech Hydro GT, FirstGear heated liners when I'm smart enough to remember them. The Hydro GT by itself doesn't stand up to 30 deg. for an hour well either.

I bet they do. I rode a CB500X with the windshield removed and my legs got noticeably less wind. If you want to swap bikes one day for an experiment let me know.
