I'm 6'1" 205lbs, so the size chart puts me in a Large. Some rentals I have used lately gave me a better fit with Medium. Anybody about my size have a good testimony for sizes with this BC? It's very hard to tell how it fits until I am in the water, when one to big floats off of my back! Thanks.

Joe, my recommendation would be to go to a Sports Chalet and try it on. I am 5'9 235 and an XL was too large for me but I did not know until i received it. It defnitely should not float off your back, but then you should be placing as little air in it as possible.
I am 6'4 225 lds and got a large. I wish I had gotten an XL. I think the large will fit you better than a medium. My son is 5'5 165 lds. The medium fits him fine. Once he gets bigger, I'll give him my Large and I will get an XL. My advice is to go with the large.
Knowing what I know now I would definitely have ordered a large I am 511 185 the medium is okay but I think I would've been happier with the large so if you haven't ordered it already I would suggest you order the large
I'm around 5'6" and 145lb but I'm big through the shoulders. I normally use a medium BCD and my wife uses a small. I bought a Mares package 3 and found the BCD too small for me. I ended up giving it my wife and buying a large. The medium fits her well and the large fits me perfectly. So I would say, buy the large.
Probably L, depending on how huch weight you're planninng to gain. It was not neglegible in my case..
I think you need size L for this model
Hi Joe, I'm 6'4 / 200lbs and initially bought a Mares Package#3 Medium size, it was way too tight. I had to return it and reordered a Large, it was perfect. Great Leisurepro customer service, they were super helpful. I suggest you go for Large. Hope this helps
Idont know if this helps because our statures are a little different. Im 5'9" 215 with a muscular build and my mares dragon bc is a large. Fits perfect and has a wide range of adjustability.
i am 5'9 170 and i am in a medium and it fits perfect. i think that medium would be a little small for you because there is a few times i wished my bc was a little longer on me. there is many adjustments to make this fit nicely though. there is also another adjustment that's not in the manual under the shoulder straps in the back its kind of a pain to adjust but helps out alot.
I am 6'0'' 155 lbs and I bought this package in size Medium for the BCD. Fits perfect with a little room for me to grow up to about 175-185 lbs. With your body weight at 205lbs, I would assume you would be a Large. I can't see a 205lbs in a Medium fitting into it comfortably, that's just my opinion though. Good luck.
I am 5'11" and I purchased the Medium which fits great on me. I am about 175lbs though. So perhaps the size chart is right to out you in a Large. I too like a snug fit in the water nothing worse than loose gear!
