2) Measure your waist at the narrowest point above the pelvis keeping the tape horizontal.
3) (For women) With your feet shoulder width apart, measure your hips at the fullest point while keeping the tape horizontal.
Measuring your hand [for gloves]
With your palm face up, measure the circumference of your hand at the widest point, excluding your thumb and with your fingers in a relaxed position. The tape should be tight but not restrictive.
Measuring for Vest Packs
