Weaver Positioning Harnesses are Sized for Optimum Fit and Comfort
Selecting the correct positioning harness size is very important for optimum comfort and confidence in the harness. The following sizing applies to all our harnesses and uses a Dee to Dee Measurement (Point A to Point E) to help determine the correct and best fitting saddle size by ensuring the dees are properly located in front of the hipbones. With the dees located in front of the hipbones, the user has better positioning ability and added comfort while in the harness.
Dee to Dee Measurement - This measurement is the most important. It is the measurement from side dee to side dee on the waist belt of the harness. Step 1 below explains how to obtain this measurement. (Point A to Point E)
Drop down approximately 4" from the top of each hipbone and measure the distance around the back from hipbone to hipbone using a tape measure. Add 2" to this measurement. This is the Dee to Dee Measurement. Please note: the added 2" will bring the dees in front of the hipbones for better positioning. (See figure 1)
Find the user's Dee to Dee Measurement in the chart below. The user's correct positioning harness size is listed to the left of the proper Dee to Dee Measurement.
Remember to allow some room for adjustment for use with summer and winter clothing.
