Apparel Sizing

Protective apparel such as helmets, leathers, gloves and boots will only work the way they were intended if they fit properly. If you already know how to size yourself, please view the Size by Brand page to find the size chart for the particular brand that interests you.

Please remember, that the following is just a guide. All brands have sizes to their own standards, so the best thing to do is to use our charts as a guide. The best way to determine proper fit is to actually try on the gear. If you order something the wrong size, remember that you have 90 days to exchange for the right size, or return for a full refund.


head measurement

To measure your head size, wrap a cloth tape measure horizontally around your head about one inch above your eyebrows. This will measure the largest portion of your head.

Select the helmet size that is closest to your head size. Often times your head measurement may fall between two helmet sizes. When this occurs you should first try the smaller size.

When wearing a helmet, it should be snug. If it is not snug, it is too big for you. With the helmet on and chin strap fastened, if you can move the helmet easily from side to side and up and down without moving your head, the helmet is too big. Try a size smaller.

Be aware that a helmet fits various head shapes differently. A helmet that will fit one person perfectly may not fit another person with the same size head, due to the shapes of their heads being different.

Jackets, Shirts, Pants & Suits

leg measurement

To measure for a jacket, shirt, pants, or a suit, it is best to have someone help take your measurements. For consistency, take all measurements from the same side of the body. Stand straight, with feet about six inches apart.

Some apparel brands use European or U.K. sizes. Be sure to check the brand's size chart for the U.S. size equivalent before ordering. European clothing sizes are typically 10 higher than the U.S. size. For example, if you wear a size 46 jacket, the European size would be a 56.


Start with measuring your sleeve length. With your arm slightly bent, start from your neck bone, measure over your shoulder and elbow points, and end at the wrist bone. This is also called Center Back (CB) Sleeve length.


Next measure your chest. You will want the total circumference of your chest at it's largest point. Stand straight with your arms out, and measure under your arm pits, across the breast bone with arms relaxed. Make sure the tape measure is parallel with the floor.


Stand at a mirror and bend to one side. Where your body creases is your natural waist. Measure around your natural waist line while keeping the tape measure parallel with the floor. Relax when taking the measurement.


The hip measurement is the total circumference at your hip's largest point. Keep tape measure parallel to the floor, and relax when taking measurement.


The inseam is the total length of the inside seam from your crotch to your ankle. Stand straight, but relax when taking measurement.


The outseam is the length of the outside seam from your waist to your ankle.

Center Back (CB) Length

The Center Back Length is the measurement from your neck bone, down your spine to your waist.

Boots and Gloves


Some boots are sized in typical US measurements, while others are sized to European specs. Please view the size chart of the boots you want to order to find the proper size conversion. If you typically wear a half size, order the next size larger for boots that are only offered in full sizes.


hand measurement To find the proper size gloves, measure the circumference around your dominant hand, across your palm and just behind your knuckles, not including your thumb. If the measured size of your hand is in between sizes of the gloves that interest you, choose the size larger if you want a loose fit and the smaller size if you like a tighter fit. Remember that leather gloves will break in and stretch after some use.
