30 Oct Ensuring Safety: A Guide to Accurately Measure for an Equestrian Body Protector
For all equestrians, safety in the saddle is paramount. An essential piece of safety gear is your body protector, designed to minimise the risk of injury in case of a fall or accident. However, ensuring the right fit for this protective equipment is crucial for its effectiveness. Accurate measurements are key for getting the perfect fit for your body protector.
Measuring for Your Equestrian Body Protector
To ensure an accurate fit, it’s important to take precise measurements. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you measure for your equestrian body protector:
- Gather the Necessary Tools: Get a soft measuring tape, a pen, and paper. It’s essential to have these tools ready before you start the measuring process.
- Take Chest Measurements: Stand upright and wrap the measuring tape around the broadest part of your chest. Ensure the tape is snug but not too tight.
- Measure Your Waist: Locate your natural waistline, typically an inch or two above the belly button, and measure around this area.
- Determine Your Back Length: From the base of your neck, measure down to the point just above your hip bone.
- Check Your Shoulder to Waist Measurement: Measure from the highest point of your shoulder to just below your waistline passing your last rib at the front
- Consult Sizing Charts: Different brands might have varying sizing charts. Once you have your measurements, refer to the specific brand’s sizing guide to select the appropriate body protector size.
The FOMO sizing charts use centimetres not inches so make sure your tape is the right way round!
