Achieving The Perfect Airowear Fit
Airowear body protectors have been designed to fit every rider, regardless of shape, size, age or gender, into a perfectly fitted body protector right off the shelf. With the many sizes and styles available within our range, we suggest reviewing the following guide to ensure that you find the best model and size to suit your body type and personal preferences.
Young riders have the opportunity to be fitted in the body protector that best suits their needs as they grow up in the saddle. Our kids body protectors offer standard sizes for those whose chest and waist measurements are the same and are sized with approximate age ranges. They are also available in short, regular, long and extra-long back lengths.
Teenagers also have unique sizing within our body protector range to provide a neat fit. Our adjustable body protectors are designed to accommodate a growing teenager.
Our women’s body protectors include a wide range of features which allow for all body types with a range of back lengths. This allows petite, plus-sized, curvy or tall riders to all fit into the range with ease. Our body protectors are created to comfortably accommodate the bust as the chest measurement increases without changing the back length to be sure that the body protector fits correctly.
Our men’s body protector range reflect the typical features of a man’s body shape, taking into consideration tailoring over the shoulders and offering a generous cut across the rib cage. As the chest sizes increase, back lengths can remain the same to ensure that the body protector remains proportionate.
How to measure!
Your body protector should be fitted over light clothing and heavier garments worn over the top.
Take the chest and back length measurements and select the corresponding size from within the chart. A women’s fit may be better achieved by choosing one size smaller than the actual chest measurement.
Before trying on, loosen the chest and waist straps of the body protector. Once on, insert thumbs into the armholes to bring the two panels together to make it easier to zip the body protector.
Fasten the adjustable straps so that a snug but comfortable fit is achieved, ensuring the contrast orange velcro markers are covered. This step will determine whether a smaller or larger size is required because if the orange cannot be completely covered, the body protector is too small. If the velcro fastenings cannot be closed enough to ensure a snug fit, then the body protector is too large.
Adjust the shoulders so the neckline lies flat against the body. If this cannot be achieved, a shorter back length may be needed.
If possible, check the back length by sitting on a saddle and ensuring there is approximately a hand’s width between the saddle and base of the body protector. At the front, the body protector should reach the breastbone at the top and cover the bottom rib at mid-chest by approximately 2.5 cm but should not cover the belly button.
