Mitchell Body Armour Sizing Chart

 

armchrtYou need to make sure that the arms are not too long or short. If the cuff of the arm pad extends past the wrist the catcher or blocker can have difficulty moving with your hand and feel like it is getting caught up with your equipment.  It will also feel like the glove is being pushed off your hand and you may constantly keep pushing your arm pads back up.  The straps on the back of the arms should be loose at the bicep and elbow area and be slightly snug in the forearm and wrist area.  If your arm pads have a wrist strap some like to have that snug while other have it just loose enough to fit their hand through it.

The chest pad should extend down to your beltline.  If the chest pad is too short you will always feel like you have to pull it down and you will also be vulnerable to shots in the mid section not to mention constantly thinking about it.  If it is too long then it will push up in your throat when going in your stance and be very uncomfortable.  You should never be concentrating on your gear.  You have enough to think about when in the game.

The chest pad should be adjusted so that you can put your arm between your chest and the chest protector. Adjust the horizontal strap to make the proper size.  If there is too much room the chest pad will not move with you leaving you exposed on the sides. This can occur in a pass across the net and the shooter one timing the shot.  You also do not want the chest pad to hang too low as this may expose your throat and collar bone areas.  Use the vertical back strap to adjust it so when you are standing normally you’re collar bone and clavicle are covered and is slightly below your Adam’s apple.

Here are some guidelines to help with getting a proper fit.  Stand at attention with one arm across the front of your body parallel to the floor (as if your arm was in a sling). With a cloth measuring tape take the following measurements.  Once you have these measurements check the charts below to see your sizing.

A). From the outside of the wrist (knobby bone) to the center back side of the elbow

B). From the center of the elbow to the center of the outer shoulder (not the very top of the shoulder)

C). From the neck (clavicle) to your beltline (where your belt would be when wearing a pair of jeans)
