Kids & Youth Jacket Measurements
The most important measurement for the kids jacket & the kids pants is height – if your child is taller than the height measurement then the sleeves/body or legs may be a bit short, and they will likely grow out of it very quickly.
The Youth Jacket requires 3 measurements (chest, waist, hip) for you to make a good buy decision… take your time now and you will get the best fit for your child.
For the kids jacket & pants – find your height measurement by… Get your child to stand straight against a wall with heels touching the wall (remove shoes). Place a ruler evenly on their head so that it touches the wall at what you think is their height. Measure with you tape from this point on the wall all the way down to the floor.
For the kids & youth jacket – find your chest measurement by… Get your child to stand with their arms lifted away from their sides and place the tape around the largest part of their chest. Once the tape is even all the way around get them to relax their arms by their sides…
Pants & Youth Jacket Measurements
For the Youth/Older Kids Jacket a hip measurement is also recommended. Follow the instructions below which take you through finding your waist and hip line to take the measurement at.
The most important measurement for the pants is height – see above. A hip measurement is also recommended.
For the pants & youth jacket – find your waist by…
To find the natural crease line of your waist, stand straight with hands at the side. Then bend sideways running the hand down the outside surface of the leg. This movement will produce a crease at the waist so place your measuring tape on this crease. Return to standing straight and place the tape measure around your waist at your crease point (usually the narrowest part of your torso).
Take the measurement in centimetres. If you don’t have a tape measure use string or wool then lie this along a ruler.
For the pants & youth jacket – find your hips by…
Your hip measurement is found… approximately 18cm down from the waist. Let the measuring tape fall down your body to the floor to find the 18cm mark, you are looking for the widest part of your body. Move the measuring tape to this point then wrap it around your body. Make sure it is straight all the way around.
