As with all racing safety equipment, racing suit fitment is critically important, and the racing suit user can increase the risk of injury if they are not fitted properly. Please refer to the general racing suit sizing chart below for proper racing suit fitment.  This chart is for ADULT racing suit sizing only.  YOUTH, JUNIOR and CHILDREN sizes are not included on this sizing chart.  If you need a suit size outside of this chart range, please contact our Technical Sales staff for size availability within the RaceQuip® Safety product offerings.  

Properly Measuring Fitment For RaceQuip® Safety Standard Racing Suits

Locate a cloth tape measure and record the following body measurements:

  • A - Height - Stand against a wall, ask someone else to measure from the floor to the top of the head, keeping the tape vertical.

  • B - Weight - Using a scale, record the weight of the person being fitted for a driving suit.

  • C - Chest - Measure circumference around the widest part, under the armpits, keeping the tape horizontal.

  • D - Shoulders - Standing straight up, have someone else measure the distance from shoulder bone edge to shoulder bone edge (Shirt shoulder seam to shirt shoulder seem).

  • E - Waist - Measure around the natural waist line, in-line with the navel, keeping the tape horizontal (NOT where your jeans ride).

  • F - Inseam - Stand against a wall, ask someone else to measure from the crotch to the ankle bone.

  • G - Sleeve - Measure from the base of the neck at the center to the wrist with arm slightly bent at an angle at the elbow..

Once measurements are completed, please refer to the sizing chart below to find the RaceQuip® Safety racing suit size that best fits your measurements.  If you DO NOT find a suit size that works well, you may have to consider having a custom racing suit made by the factory.  If this is the case, please refer to the CUSTOM RACING SUIT section listed below. 

Remember, a properly fitted racing suit is important for both maximum safety and overall driver comfort.

FACTORY NOTE: RaceQuip® racing suits sizes are cut generous.  If you find yourself in-between sizes on the sizing chart shown, go with the smaller suit.
