Fitting Advice

Achieving the perfect Airowear fit

Airowear body protectors have been designed to fit every rider, regardless of shape, size, age or gender into a perfectly fitted body protector 'off the shelf'. From the many sizes and styles within our range, we hope the following guide will help you to find the best model and size suited to your body shape and personal preferences.

Zipped VS Non-Zipped Styles

Reiver 010 is the Airowear tabard body protector, which is the best style to choose for those not wishing to have a zip fastening. By contrast, Outlyne is our zipped body protector and is the style to choose for those who prefer a jacket style.

For Children

The Reiver 010 tabard body protector for children is adjusted at the waist and shoulder and has 2 optional waist fittings per size. This provides alternative fitting for children with different body shapes:

a) Standard sizes are for those whose chest & waist measurements are the same.

b) 'WW' sizes are for those whose waist measurement is wider than their chest measurement. These sizes have a suffix of 'WW' and provide greater room around the waist whilst maintaining a neat fit across the chest.

Sizes in Reiver 010 start from approximately age 3.

An alternative to Reiver 010 for children is Junior Outlyne. This style has separate chest, waist and shoulder adjustments, giving riders the option to adjust according to their body shape.

For Teenagers

For teenagers preferring a zipped jacket style of body protector, Teen Outlyne provides a neat fit with adjustable chest, waist and shoulder fastenings. For teenagers preferring a tabard style of body protector, the Reiver 010 in the larger child's / small adult's sizes should also provide a neat fit, with adjustment only at the waist and shoulders.

For Women - Petite, Plus Size, Curvy, Busty & Tall

Women's Outlyne is the recommended style for women of all shapes and sizes due to its sizing features. Women's Outlyne runs in sizes 6 - 20, with 4 optional back lengths per size. This enables riders whether petite, plus-sized, curvy or tall to fit into the same standard range. The back lengths stay shorter at the back, with the length at the front increasing to accommodate the bust as the chest measurement increases. This is unique to Outlyne. There are separate chest, waist and shoulder fastenings for Women's Outlyne, giving you the option to adjust according to your body shape. If a tabard style is preferred, the Reiver 010 is recommended only for the less curvaceous rider.

For Men

Men's Outlyne is the only body protector on the market designed specifically for men. Its sizing reflects the typical features of a man's body shape, taking into consideration tailoring over the shoulders and generously cut across the rib cage. As the chest sizes increase, the back lengths remain the same, ensuring the length at front increases proportionately instead of the back. This is unique to Outlyne. There are separate chest, waist and shoulder fastenings for Men's Outlyne, giving you the option to adjust according to your body shape.
