My biggest issue is that I'm 6'7" and 215 pounds. Thus whenever I've jumped with others, I am always much faster falling than them.
Some bullet items.
At 6'6" and 235-250, using a flitesuit bodysuit for RW with a 10 inch wing or a TonySuit with a 9 inch wing for RW could vary my fall rate from 86 MPH to 126 MPH.
At 6'7" 215 you will have no problems with fall rate issues over time. Having said that, there are couple of things to consider while overseas, 1) will you remain 215#, and 2) can you do some reverse planning to order your suit with the suit delivery date being a week before your arrival date?
You should take a picture of yourself against something relative and write the manufacturer a note explaining your concerns. I can assure you they have both the knowledge and expertise to build you a suit that will compensate your fall rate accordingly. Just don't bullshit them.
It will take a while to really learn how to fly well in RW and it will make you that much better at FF'ing. Once you decide you'd like to try FF'ing, you really can learn how to FF in a pair of BDU pants and floppy shirt. By then, you will have had enough time at the DZ to figure out which FF suit works best for you and which is then the most cool.
I am endorsing both Flitesuit and Tonysuits because I have years of experience with them. I'm sorry that I don't know much about "vertical" or "kurupee" to form an opinion.
