There are many threads with advice for bigger guys that need a little more drag than usual.

Try this one as an example, you can search for others:

Is the "stool" in your name a reference to something like "stool pigeons", meaning a replica of something? Because otherwise, it sounds like you're constipated... Wink

If you're still a student, or just off student status, consult with your instructors as to what will work best for you. If you are still a student, make sure they will be willing to let you jump what you buy, or you may just end up looking at it until you get a license.

If you're looking for an RW suit, you'll probably want some sort of booties, as they add quite a bit of drag. You're also going to want extra material and possibly a small wing or just extra fabric under the arms. In any case, an instructor might not want you to jump with those things as a student, so just ask before-hand.

Beyond that, Flite Suit makes an awesome jumpsuit that will last forever, and Bev Suits has made some great slow falling suits for some bigger jumpers I know.
