Tried on the RST Pro in a size 40. Fitted a chest protector too. Tight fit,but not cutting my balls off tight.
Leg a little short,but sure the boots will sort that out.

Popped over to Cotters and Steve did me a great deal on a set of 45R race leathers in black n yellow.
Got myself a pair of Forma race boots in black n yellow too

I am same height as you and a stone heavier and I found size 44 in a technic suit a perfect fit. I usually use Alpinestars gear but the sizing is brutal, you definitely need to try on the gear before buying

Whats the sizing like on those Oxford RP1 1 piece race suits?

I read somewhere that if you are say a size 40,then you need to go 2 sizes up with Oxford,as they are very small and tight fitments.

Is this true?

There's only one way to see what fits and fits correctly. And that's actually trying on the clothing in question.

Nobody is selling them here anymore,Oxford have stopped making leathers.
Rang RPM and Ronan told me that.
Megabikes dont have them anymore either.

How much did the leathers cost you in the end if you don't mind me asking ?
