The various motorcycle clothing companies use a number of different standards to size their ranges. We’ve tried to simplify this as much as possible for you by providing appropriate size charts for virtually every clothing item on our site. Simply click the ‘Size Guide’ button when viewing a product to see the applicable chart. If you need to take some measurements of yourself before referring to the charts, we suggest you use the following advice:
- Use a flexible measuring tape. These are often sold in craft shops, fabric shops and general household shops.
- Have someone else help by reading the measurements for you.
- Don’t measure over thick layers of clothing
- Don't tuck in your tummy or push out - just be the normal you.
- When measuring keep the tape measure snug, but not tight.
MEASURING YOUR CHEST
Wrap the tape measure under your armpits around the fullest part of your chest, whilst just wearing a something light such as a t-shirt. If your tummy is larger than your chest, we suggest you measure your tummy as well and use this measurement.
MEASURING YOUR WAIST
Wrap the tape measure around where you would normally wear a belt.
MEASURING YOUR LEG LENGTH
Put on a pair of shoes and have someone measure from your crotch, straight down the inside of your leg to where you want your trousers to end.
MEASURING YOUR HANDS
Wrap the tape measure around the width of your hand, across your palm and knuckles (at right angles to your fingers). Don't include your thumb in the measurement.
MEASURING YOUR HEAD
Wrap the tape measure around your head, above your ears and about an inch (2.5 cm) above your eyebrows. Try not to wrap the tape too tightly. Take your time and take a few sets of measurements to find the average circumference of your head. Be sure to measure in cm, as this is the standard used by all helmet manufacturers.
