Look at the size chart,it should be close. If you can you should really try one on. Also is this a bag style suit that is meant to fit over other clothes ie sweat pants and maybe a hoodie if so keep that in mind as to how you want this to fit.
My drysuit is a different brand that is a modified fit meaning its almost like a sloppy fitting wetsuit ,which i can wear shorts and a tshirt but not much more. Definetely try if you can and come ice thaw you should be ready to go.
Depending on what you intend to use this for and how much time you actually end up in the water for you may want to consider some good fitting gloves at the very least, possibly a diving style hood and maybe for surfing some wetsuit style booties. These all help you enjoy whatever sport you are doing at the time. If you are slalom skiing and wakeboarding your feet will be exposed and depending on actuall time in the water,may decide how much you can tolerate.
Get as much things prepared before you hit the water, having ropes ,skis,wakeboards on and ready etc so you get up and out as quick as possible. Then Enjoy.07 Outback DD

Like Ian said it depends on how long your torso is. Also how big your wrists and ankles are. The smaller the size the smaller the wrists and ankle cuffs are and the better seal it will make. Also note if they are too small they will cut off blood supply to your hands and feet.2008 Outback V - Sold but never forgotten.

I am 6-2, I've been 220 to 180 through the years I have had my dry suit. It is XL. I prefer to wear my life jacket in the suit and the baggy is nice.08 LSV
