How to Size your Garment

Here are the The Regatta Shop, we work with a whole range of garment suppliers and makers to bring you all of our amazing custom gear. Each of these suppliers use a slightly different method for their sizing. In order to help you choose the correct size for you each product has a size table that you can use to help you. Please note that as our garments are made by hand and therefore, there may be some slight differences between the measurements in size tables and individual garments.

Garment to garment comparison

Aside from JL Racing garments, the best way to make sure you get the correct size, is to compare a garment of yours with the measurements in the size table of the product page. Most of these measurements are of the half-chest. This measurement is taken with the garment lying flat on a table, measure across the garment from side-seam to side-seam 1cm down from the base of the sleeve.

Body measurements

While a garment to garment comparison works best for most products, technical clothing from JL Racing are designed to closely fit the body and so it is important to use the measurements of the person rather than the garment. See the JL Racing section below for more information.

  JL Racing

Rowers come in many shapes and sizes. The JL sizing system is based on the actual measurements of people and don't always translate to what is on offer at the local shopping centre. If you're looking for that perfect fit check your measurements with the tables below to find the right match for you.

If you can't find the perfect size, don't worry, JL Racing can make yours especially for your unique body shape! Check out the custom sizing page for more information or give us a call.

JL Racing Outerwear

Outerwear by JL Racing is designed especially for needs of the rower. Getting the right fit not only keeps you comfortable, but also allows the fabrics to wick away moisture and protect you from the weather, waves or just seven seat's backsplash!

Sequel Vest Fitting #1

JL Racing vests have a surprising fit concept: You must be sitting in the boat to really appreciate how it works. There are different patterns for women and men, each has the same in-the-boat functionality.

A: When standing upright, the vest will be short in front. This is as it should be! Rowers spend little time upright anyway. Resist the temptation to pull it down or to get a bigger size if your belly shows.

B: Armholes are cut so that when at your full reach, you won't be chafed in front. Most people will be wearing a technical shirt of some kind under the Turtle anyway, but we don't want any baby-soft skin being rubbed raw.

C: See how the long tail lays flat over the lower back, even when standing! It is all about keeping you protected.

Fitting a JL Racing Vest #2

Here is a rower in the boat in his JL Racing vest. He is so happy because his JL Turtleshell will keep his back warm and protected from both the wind and his pair partner's backsplash!

A: Notice that the front is now the perfect length - nothing extra, nothing curling over or getting stuck at the release.

B: High collar in the back, low V-neck in the front keeps the back of your neck warm and toasty but won't interfere with the motion of your chin.

C: The long tail of his Turtle lays flat against the lower back, keeping the lumbar region warm and dry. See that the tail will not catch in the tracks, as it is designed to float above.
