Racesafe RS2010 Fitting Guide
Front Lengths - denotes the same front lengths between sizes.
Back Length Option - each size is available with either a standard or short back option.
Long/Tall - refers to a longer front & back than the standard size, with the same chest and waist fit.
Ladies Fit - adult sizes Large & X-Large. Suitable where size is needed for the chest & waist, but a shorter body is required.
Chest Size - sizes commonly fit larger than the chest measurement guide suggests. Select a smaller size if appropriate.
Chest and Waist
Measure the chest size and select an appropriate size from the size chart. To measure the chest, place the tape measure across the back, underneath the arms and then across the fullest part of the chest/bust. Important- Chest measurement guides in the range tend to be generous. If the chest measurement is close to bordering sizes, select the smaller size to try initially.
Before trying on, loosen the side adjustments to the maximum allowance. Once on, insert thumbs into the armholes to bring the two sides together and to help make doing up the zip easier.
Tighten the side adjustments until a firm, but comfortable fit is achieved. Whether this can be achieved within the range of adjustment will determine whether a smaller or larger size is required.
Body and Front Length
At the front, the Body Protector should reach up to the breastbone and cover the bottom rib at mid chest by approximately 2.5cm. The front length should not restrict movement within the range of a riding position. The body protector should sit off the hips at the side with a neat fit over the shoulders.
Check the back length by sitting on a saddle and ensure the Body Protector does not hit the saddle or impede movement. Sitting on the saddle, ensure there is approximately a hands width between the saddle and the bottom of the Body Protector. It should be possible to lean back in a balanced position without the bottom of the body protector catching the saddle.
