How to Measure Your Torso

Torso:

Ask a friend to run a tape measure from the top of your shoulders (i.e the same place where the collar on a crew neck T shirt finishes), down your back to your waistline (ie the small of your back, at the same height as your naval or the top of your hip bone).

Waist:

Run a soft tape measure around the narrowest part of your waist, just above your hip bone and in line with your naval.

Torso Length

● They have gone to the trouble of preparing this size information!

● We have tried them ourselves, in a full range of models and sizes.

● We see customers testing for size in our Mountain Sports Shop

● We have been selling them for years!
