The Flak Jacket consists of two distinct parts, the Flak Base and Flak Vest. Heres how to choose your personal sizing:
Flak Base fitment:
The dividing line between S/M and X/L is a chest measurement of about 41". Measure your chest by using a tailors tape (the soft kind), going under your armpits and over your pec muscles. If you dont have a tailors tape, use a piece of string, then measure the string length with a conventional measuring tape.
If youre at the boundry between sizes, look at your basic body shape. If you have a very "V" shaped torso, go for the S/M. If you have a straight torso, and particularly if you have wide shoulders and/or big biceps, go with L/XL.
Flak Vest fitment:
Flak Vest sizing is based on the number of segments used in the back protector:
* 5 Segment: Total length of 19".
* 6 Segment: Total length of 22".
* 7 Segment: Total length of 25".
Because of the length, the side straps act to support the kidneys on the 5 Segment version. The 6 and 7 Segment versions feature a kidney belt that can be zipped on and off.
Selecting the correct size depends on torso length and rider preference. As a rule of thumb, riders under 59" are best suited in the 5 Segment. Rider 510" to about 61" should go 6 Segment, and riders at or over 62" should go with the 7 Segment. To further vailidate your sizing, have a friend measure you from the base of your neck to the top of your pants, and compare it to the chart above. For proper fitment, the bottom of the back protector should overlap the top of your pants by about 1-2.5". The back protector is connnected to the chest protector with adjustable straps, allowing for fine-tuning your personal fit.
Riders who like to run their jersey tucked into their pants, and want the Flak Vest to fit more in the mode of a conventional motocross roost guard, should consider selecting a size one segment shorter than normal.

Comments about Outlet: Rockgardn Flak Jacket:
Once you get used to it, it's as easy to get into as separate elbow and shoulder pads, and a lot more protection. Excellent for downhill/freeride biking.
