Vector Measuring Guide
Thirty years of manufacturing custom skydiving gear has taught us the importance of accurate customer measurements. If we have accurate measurements, we can build a harness that fits as comfortably as only a Vector can.
Carefully read the following guide and fill in the corresponding blanks on the order form. You should have the help of a friend to take these measurements, and we encourage you to take each one twice. If, after reading the explanation, you are still unsure about a measurement, give us a call. Here is the information we need:
For men, the prominent hipbone is usually just below the waistband of the trousers, close to the side of the body. For women, the measurement is a little more below the waistband than for men (about 3" to 4").
The average male, 5'7" to 5'11" with an inseam measurement of 31" to 34", will usually have a torso length measurement of about 17" to 19". This is equivalent to a medium harness.
The average female, 5'2" to 5'6" with an inseam measurement of 28" to 31", will usually have a torso length measurement of 15" to 17". This is equivalent to a small harness.
These averages should give you a general idea about your measurements. If you come up with something that is entirely different from these, then you may be taking the measurement incorrectly. If, after reading these directions carefully, you still have a measurement that seems odd, give us a call.
For the average male, 5'7" to 5'11", the leg strap measurement will usually be about 30" to 33".
For the average female, 5'2" to 5'6", the leg strap measurement will usually be about 28" to 31".
When taking the leg strap and torso length measurements, keep in mind that they both use the point at the side top of the hipbone as a common measuring point. This means it's important to locate this point properly by following these directions. If you have any questions, please give us a call; we want your harness to fit perfectly as much as you do!
