QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I am 5'9", 150 lbs with a 29" waste, and I will not be wearing a wetsuit or knee pads underneath. From my calculations converting the cm to inches on the sizing chart that I saw, it looks like I should order a small. Can you please let me know if that is correct or if I would be better off with a medium.
Hey Ed, thanks for reaching out! Unlike the Titan suits, the Fornocal Pants tend to be a little more true-to-size; therefore, I think that a Small would be a solid choice for you. Let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with. In the meantime, have a great weekend!
Do the sizes (S, M, L) match up pretty well with American sizes? I'm 5'9, 150-160 lbs, 31" waist. I wear medium for most clothes. Is medium a good choice for these pants and the jacket? Also, I like my pants to fit OVER my kneepads and wellies. Are the legs roomy enough for that?
Thanks for reaching out, Eric. You should fall right on a medium. I am a similar size, wear my kneepads (and boots) underneath, and a medium gives me a the freedom of mobility that I want in cave attire. Let me know if there’s anything else that I can help you with.
Are the AV Fornocal pants totally waterproof?
Hey Kevin, thanks for dropping us a line. The AV Fornocal pants, Taka, and Titans are all made and coated w/ a hydrophobic material. It is highly water resistant (but waterproof) which allows the material to breathe and vent out condensation. The fabric falls somewhere between Cordura (very breathable / not water resistant) and PVC (not breathable / completely waterproof). In my experience, the Fornocal, Taka, and Titan fabric is a much more versitale material than Cordura or PVC.
