Sizing

Sizing & Fit

A firefighting suit is designed predominantly to protect the wearer from heat and flame but other factors must be taken into consideration when deciding what the correct fit is for the wearer. The high thermal values incorporated into the suits means that it is essential that the fit is not too tight; encouraging an air flow between the body and the suit will help to reduce the heat build-up from the body, particularly when hard physical work is being undertaken. Please take this into account when measuring up.

Measuring

Please take measurements as detailed below and refer to the correct garment sizing chart.

Tunics

Height: to top of head
Chest: around the chest under the arms wearing T shirt
Inside leg: from crotch to top of the foot in shoe or boot

Trousers

Height: standing vertically to top of head
Waist: circumference at natural waist (wearing lightweight trousers for fire fighting garments)
Inside leg: from crotch to top of the foot in shoe or boot

Coveralls

Gloves

Measure the perimeter of your hand across the knuckles at the base of your fingers (do not include your thumb) with a piece of string or an inch-tape (right-handed people their right hand and left-handed people their left hand). Your hand must be closed so that the end of your index finger can slightly touch your thumb tip.
