Sumo Suits

Ok, this may be a stupid question but I have looked through all of the IPA’s rules and it doesn’t specify what deadlift suits need to be made out of. so for sumo dl’s could i use a leviathan? I’d like to try if it’s legal but I don’t know if it would be tight enough. How about in the APF?

same as the feds squat gear rules…i personally pull sumo and hate pulling in my levithan because it slows me down to much…i pull in a metal v-type single ply squat suit and metal pro breifs under it…i get nearly 50 pounds from that combo…rb

wow 50 lbs. hmmm i’ll go with my second choice of metal viking 2 ply pro squatter and metal viking brefs.
