It's best to have a friend or family member do the measuring.
Use a cloth measuring tape. If you don't have one, use a cord (or an NRS strap!) and transfer that to a tape measure.
Measure in your street clothes; we size technical outerwear pieces like drysuits and dry tops to include room for layering underneath.
Stand up straight and relax.
Suggestions on sizing when your measurements cross into different size categories:
With wetsuits, your weight is the best "tiebreaker" when measurements cross sizes. Remember, wetsuits need to fit snugly to be efficient at excluding water and holding in warmth.
In looser fitting garments like drysuits, splash jackets, etc, look first at the height, then at the weight for a tiebreaker.
Sometimes the best solution is to purchase both sizes and keep the one with the best fit. Our Hassle-Free Returns process is easy and free.
