Sizing Guide and Measurement Sheets
VestGuard manufactures all body armour to the following sizing information.
Please consider the clothing that will be worn during typical duties under or over your body armour.
Body armour is ergonomically designed to sit around your belly button +/- 1 inch. This is the ideal position to allow the wearer to sit or crouch whilst wearing body armour.
Most of our body armour is adjustable around the waist and shoulders and will typically size up and down a size to meet your individual requirements.

Frequently Asked Sizing Questions
Q. How do I know what size I am?
A. You will need a tape measure and our sizing table. Measure around the largest circumference of your Chest and Waist/Stomach. Using these two measurements identify the sizes of both on the sizing table and then select the highest of the two. This will be the most suitable size to fit your body shape.
Q. What height does the vest fit?
A. People are all different shapes and sizes and body armour works differently between overt and covert styles. If you are between 5'8" and 6'1" our armour should be suitable to fit your body. If you have a shorter or longer upper body than usual please contact us to discuss which size is most suitable for you.
Q. Do you supply female sizes?
A. All of our NIJ level II(2), NIJ level IIIA(3A) and Home Office HG1 KR1 SP1 armour are made from very flexible and thin layers which contour and fit the body shape of both our male and female customers.
