Chest Protectors...couple questions

Looking into getting a chest protector to wear under my Jersey or shirt, whichever I feel like wearing. I'm a bigger guy about 6'1...240. Will XL be too small, should I go with XXL? Looking at these things online they look sort of tight so i will probably have to go with XXL.

Any opinions on which one is most comfortable? Empire, DYE, Proto..etc.

I recommend the Eclipse one, I would most likely go with an XXl. I am 6'3 185 and I use a L and it is snug.

I'm 6' and 230lbs, 36-38 waist. I picked up the PE protector and went 3XL at first because of the measurements. They spec a 22" chest for the 3XL which is exactly what I am. It fits well but a little loose at the bottom and bunches up. I just got a 2XL today and its tight, which is what I wanted. I may get rid of the 3XL but haven't decided.

my budddy just got the empire protector, he is a hair bigger than me, my
3XL PE protector was tight on him, and got the 2XL/3XL empire and it fits me like a shirt. But very light and comfortable. In the emepire I would probably get the next size down for me from what he had if I want it tight. This one was a mesh instead of the underarmor type material. it seemed to breath better for the few seconds I had it one.
