MEASURING GUIDELINES

Do not measure yourself. Measurements should be performed by an authorized and trained Kokatat retailer. Failing that, someone you trust to get in close with a cloth measuring tape.

Just relax! Look forward and stand up straight with your feet about 12 inches apart. 

Don’t move around and look straight ahead. Stop looking at your measuring partner or the floor. Remember, relax!

Take measurements in - preferably washed - street clothes and bare feet.

DO NOT make allowances for insulation layers under the suit. Kokatat patterns are designed to allow for adequate layering under dry suits. 

All circumferences should be taken at the widest point. If you happen to be measuring your wife or mother-in-law, you may want to refer to this as… oh, forget it.

Again… measure twice, cut once. 

The following measurements should be taken on the person’s front side:

CHEST: Take this measurement at the widest point. This is usually at the nipple area. Do not hold your breath, just relax. If the person is muscular, take a second measurement at the armpit area, across the upper chest. Use the larger of the two measurements. 

WAIST: Measure just above your hip bone where your body bends when bending sideways.

HIPS: Take this measurement from the side to ensure the correct placement of the tape. Place the tape around the hips and across the widest point of the buttocks. This might be a good time to come up with a descriptive word other than “widest”. Make sure that all pockets are empty.

INSEAM: This is also referred to as the “crotch to ankle bone” measurement for those very secure individuals. Have the person stand with legs straight and feet about 12" apart. Have them hold their hand to the side, with palm facing out. Place the end of the measuring tape between their first two fingers. Ask them to place the hand with the tape in their crotch area, snug up against the body. Just relax! Stretch the tape straight down your ankle bone. Ask the person to look straight ahead, turn their head to the right and cough.

GIRTH: This measurement is for the entire torso length. Place the tape at the base of the neck on top of the shoulder. Run the tape down the front, through the crotch and up the back to the starting point on the shoulder. 

This final measurement should be taken on the backside:

SPINE TO WRIST: Hold arm directly out to the side, parallel to the floor, palm down. Bend the elbow forward, stop hand in front of nose. Place the tape at the base of the neck, starting at the spine. Run tape along the arm, turn at the elbow, measuring to the wrist bone.

 

A NOTE ON DRY SUIT SIZING 

A common mistake with dry suits is making a judgment about the size by looking at the garment while still on the hanger. A suit on the rack always looks bigger than when it is on you. If you fall on the high end of the size scale, move up to the next size and consider shortening sleeves and legs (dry suits only).

    At first it seems a bit expensive but only until you end up in cold water and then it all makes sense! Very comfortable, completely warm and dry.. It does exactly what it says on the box!
