I am a woman of about 5'8, 75kg. The medium sounds too big? Not sure which size?
I am male, 5'8" and 82 kg. My medium is roomy when I don't wear a wetsuit, but I don't think it's TOO big. The saddle straps help a lot, I think, in making it feel snug and secure.
I am 5'5" and and also weigh 75kg so I am a little rounder than you, but the medium BC fits very well. It has a lot of adjustments, so I think the medium will fit you just fine. After you get all your bits an bobs on the BCD, it will be perfect. I have traveled with mine all over the world, lot's of packing and airline searches (also being lost a time or two) and have over 50 dives on my Lady Zeagle, and it is still like new. It is the best fitting and most comfortable BCD I have ever owned and I have been diving since 1987. You have made a great choice. I hate to sound like a commercial, but I love this BCD.
I am 5' 9" and 180#. It fits me perfect.
Hi Judi. I use an XL which was slightly big for me. However I was able to to adjust it to size at the waist by changing the length where the bolts are at close to the back. the medium sounds like it might be too big. The good news is that it's easy to adjust or you have the option of sending it back to Leisurepro. They're great about making sure you have the right BC. Hope this helps and Dive Long and Prosper..
You are correct. The medium is probably to large. Zeagle has on there website a guide chart which should be helpful. The LTD is an excellent technical diver's BCD. Good Luck. Rich
These BCDs seem to run big. I'm a male, 5'11" / 200lbs and a medium fits perfectly. I initially ordered a large, but it was too big even after adjusting it, and ended up returning it for the medium. My guess is that a medium would be too big for you.
The mens med should be fine.. Huge amont of adjustment in it! The issue with the small I've gotten for students is that the shoulder straps are quite narrow. I've ended up putting many of my female students in the med and adjusting the waist to smallest position so they could have the added comfort of the wider shoulder straps for supporting tank and weights.

This is Ernest's wife. In answer to your question I would go with the small. They are built with quite a bit of adjustment but I believe the medium would be too big. I have the Ranger W built specifically for women. I am 5' 0", 57kg and purchased a women's medium and we had to adjust it down in size.
We both love our Zeagles and would never switch!
Best of luck to you.
I am a man 5'11" and 90kg and the Large fit me just right. I would personally say the medium would fit what you described, but the only sure way to know is to try on a Zeagle at a shop to be sure.
Medium sounds right, but just in case I'd go to Zeagle seller and try one on for fit.
I'm 6'0, 190 lbs. I tried the medium and it was too small. I think medium could be OK for you. There are plenty of adjustments. Worst case you could just send it back like me and get a different size.
