- Neck _______
Neck circumference at collar height or 2″ up from the base of neck.
4.Chest_____ Do not inhale when measuring chest. Tape measure should also be comfortable, not tight or loose.
- Waist (actual) _____
Waist should be measured where you tighten the belt. All measurements taken in a relaxed position. Tape measure should also be comfortable, not tight or loose.
- Torso Length _______
Torso length- Start from the base of the neck as shown, Measure down through the crotch and up to the same height on the back of the neck. Make sure the tape is not to tight or to loose.This will be the exact measurement of the torso on the suit.
- Sleeve __
Measuring a motorcycle jacket alone is not good. Please help to confirm the proper sleeve length by measuring a Dress Shirt Sleeve length as shown below. Also make sure to mention when providing this measurement, that this is a dress shirt sleeve length not a jacket sleeve length measurement, measured as shown in Sizing Detail.Note: Your dress shirt sleeve measured as shown above should be approximately 2″ shorter than the jacket sleeve length measured. Please advise if you ride a sportbike leaning more forward, stretching the arms out futher.
- Shoulder Width ______
From center back base of neck (the bony bump at the base of yourneck) to directlyabovearmpit crease, not the outside edge of shoulder.
- Bicep ______
Around the largest part of the bicep with arm relaxed.
- Forearm ______
Largest part of the forearm. Directly below the elbow.
Largest part of the wrist around the wrist bone.
13.Actual Waist ________
(Waist size marked on a pant can be correct or up to 6 inches different than the actual waist measurement, so it is very important to measure the waist.)
14.Belly measurement _______
Only necessary if it is 2″ larger than the waist.
- Hip Circumference ______
(Measured around the largest part of the butt.)
- Thigh Circumference _______
(Measured just below the crotch at the largest part of the thigh.)
- Crotch to start of knee armor. ______
(For proper knee armor location.) It is almost impossible to find a production pant where the knee armor fits perfectly on the kneecap when in a riding position. Knee/shin is one of the highest initial impact areas of the body in a tumble. If the armor floats up and down in the pocket, it will not stay in place upon impact. If the armor can be adjusted with Velcro, the Velcro can detach in a tumble Follow these instructions to measure for the correct placement of knee/shin armor and inseam:
The best way to start is by wearing a denim pant, sitting with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle, shin vertical to the ground, leg horizontal to the ground. (We will explain later how to measure if your feet are further back on the pegs, or more forward) Thin dress pants or cotton/polyester pants will not work properly for measuring.
Place a ruler up against the shin bone with another ruler touching on top of the leg. The knee/shin armor starts 1.5″ back from the intersection of the rulers.
Here you can see the vertical plane of the shin and the horizontal plane of the leg with 1.5″ back from the top of the knee towards the waist marked with the finger.
Put tape around the top of the knee 1.5″ back, with the tape extending down to the inseam of the pant.
Straighten the knee. From the top tape line go down the leg 5 inches and put another tape line. You have just marked where the knee armor will go
The photo above shows a good inseam length. The cuff of the pant should be close to or touching the top foot arch of the boot.
Place a cloth tape at the crotch where all the seams of the pant intersect. Measure down the inseam to where the tape wrapped around the leg intersects the inseam. This measurement is called: “Crotch to the starting point of the knee/shin armor.”
This photos shows our standard Knee/Shin Tri-Armor in the proper location on the knee.
