Jumpsuit Size Chart:
These jumpsuits are the same size as the Mann-Lake economy jumpsuits.
Jacket Size Chart:
These jackets are the same size as the Mann-Lake economy jackets.
These measurements may seem large but remember you want the fabric to be loose around your body. If your jacket is too large or small, just ship it back and we send you the next size up or down free of charge.
Length - You want the length of the jacket to be long enough to at least cover your belt line. You may want to check this measurement while bending over.
Back of Neck to Cuff - This measurement might seem to be too large, but it is one inch longer than the Mann-Lake economy jumpsuit. You do need the extra length in the legs for when you are bending over or stooping to pick something up. When you do these activities, your pants cuffs will ride up exposing your ankles. The extra length prevents this from happening. If the pants legs are too long, have a tailor shorten the leg. Use this measurement to check the front also, if you have a large stomach.
Back of Neck to Center of Crotch - To check this measurement you might measure a suit that currently fits you. Remember when you bend down or squat the crotch will ride up. Again, use this measurement to check the front if you have a large stomach.
Waist/Gut - This is the absolute maximum diameter of the suit in the stomach area. You want this number to be large enough so the jacket moves freely. To check this measurement compare it to an existing jacket or take a tape measure and see how loose each size is.
Center of Back to Wrist - To check hold your arm straight out in front of you and bend your elbow 45 degrees. Have someone measure from your spine to your wrist.
Exchanges - We are happy to exchange a suit provided it is clean and has never been used in the bee-yard. Just ship it back to us and we will ship upon return the alternate size.
