I am 6'0, 200 lbs with a 34" waist and 42" chest...what size would be best? A large?
A large should fit you fine. My husband has a XL but he is little bigger than you. The knighthawk has the ability to expand if you need it to. My husband loves his knighthawk and I am on my second ladyhawk.
It is always best to try on the BC for comfort...your weight and size should be fine for Large or Xtra Large BC, but you want the straps and overall size to fit your frame. The Bladder is large enough for recreational dives and unless you are doing technical dives or diving with drysuits and high amounts of weight like what we used during our Sheriff Dive Recovery call outs, the standard bladder will be fine. Technical diving might require a larger bladder for lifting large weights or a recovered victim.
I love the Scuba Pro Knighthawk and I would buy it again!

I am 5'-10", 235 lbs, waist 34", 42" chest, and I have a large. Been extermely happy with this BCD too!
I have this BC in a large. I'm 6'1", 200lbs with a 35 waist and it fits great. Definitely the right size for you.
If you end up picking this up, enjoy. I've had mine for a couple years now and love it. Great fit, comfortable, really thought out features.
I think you would be better of with an extra large. This BC has alot of adjustment in the straps. By the time you throw on a thick neoprene wet
suit or a dry suit, you may need the extra room provided by the extra large.
Go with the X-large. I have a 54 chest and a 38 waist and weigh 285. You will be happy with this BC. This BC is the closest BC to a technical BC you can get. For an avid diver, that does not want to do tech diving. This is the way to go. The lift is incredible. Use short bursts of air. You will be very amazed. The rise you get is wonderful. Also the BC has 3 ways to deflate. the valve above the left shoulder. Keeps you from sticking your hose way high up. A very nice feature.......B.J. Bobby...Master Scuba Diver.
