Sizing & Measuring

To ensure that Turnout gear fits properly, it is important that firefighters are measured correctly. Ideally, firefighters should be sized using a Bristol sizing set; however, a tape measure will suffice.


A    Measurement at chest (bust) line

B    Measure sleeve length by holding arms as illustrated. Begin tape measure at nape of neck; follow contour of arm around elbow to 1" below wrist bone

C    Measure around outside of arms at rest


D    Measurement of inseam from high up in crotch down to lower edge of ankle bone

E    Measurement around waist

F    Measurement around hip (Women only)
