Sizing for Helite Airbag Vests

With sizes from Child Small (special order) to Adult 6XL (in some of our jackets), we have the perfect size for any rider and any riding style. The sizing chart is also on the relevant page of every Helite vest and jacket.

Please note that this page lists the sizing charts are for the black, high viz, Custom and GP Air Airvests.   There is a separate page for the sizing charts for the range of Helite Jackets. NB   If your size is not in stock delivery takes 2 - 3 weeks.  Call the Helite airbag experts anytime to ask about sizing on 08 8339 6781

Please, keep in mind that Helite products run smaller than average Australian sizing.  Very few people get their sizing wrong however, if needed, sizing exchanges are no hassle. (You do have to pay for getting it back to us in new condition and we cover the cost of resending the new size to you). If you decide you'd prefer a larger or smaller size just let us know and we'll send you a new size once we receive the it back in new and unused condition.  Do not ride anywhere with your vest/jacket on if you think it might not be the correct size.     

The L-L is the same length as a regular size L but a wider version of it. Same with the XL-L and the XL. The XL-L is the wide version of the XL.

The vests are made to be long enough to sit on, but you do not want the rib protection so low that it's covering below the waist in the front. The other fit to avoid is wearing the vest to small so it rides up high under the arms. The vest should have a loose fit and be long enough to cover the hip and pelvic areas in the event of an accident. 

You'll notice some overlap between sizes. With the range of vest adjustments possible, it is very likely that you can comfortably fit in two sizes. Deciding which to order will depend on your usage - if you require extra room for
looser fitting jackets, go with the larger size. If you'll only be wearing the vest with lighter layers or a leather racing suit, we suggest opting for the smaller size.

NB   If your size is not in stock delivery takes 2-3 weeks.
