Metal Gear Size Charts
Please take note that our sizes charts have changed. Based on customer feedback we discovered that the original size chart was hard to understand and was running too big for most customers. Both of these issues have been changed with the new size charts and we thank you all for your suggestions and feedback.
If you are still unsure of your size, please call one of our gear specialists at 888-854-8806.
1. Quick Call Center Sizing TipsThese tips come straight from our call center representatives. These are the tips they use when speaking to customers on the phone who have no idea what to get. We feel these should be considered when reading the size chart.
Pro: Go straight off your shoulder measurement in inches. Whatever your shoulders measure is the size you need.
Pro Briefs: Go straight off your PELVIS AROUND measurement (inches). If you measure 42 inches, you will need a 42 brief.

FOR ALL TYPES:SUITS AND BRIEFS
If your suit has Velcro straps or is a brief, then do not use the SUIT HEIGHT FROM CROTCH TO STRAPS in the selection of your size. If this is the case and your measurement falls into two of the three categories left, then this is the best suit for you to get.
3. Somotype Size Chart
*** Based on your actual body structure
ECTOMORPH: Small frame with long lean muscles
SUITS AND BRIEFS
Highest priority measurements: PELVIS AROUND and SUIT HEIGHT FROM CROTCH TO STRAPS
Highest priority measurement: CHEST AROUND
Endomorph: Small frame with long lean muscles
SUITS AND BRIEFS
Highest priority measurement: PELVIS AROUND
Highest priority measurement: SHOULDERS AROUND
Why: This area of your body will generally be the hardest area of your upper torso so there will be less compression of the shirt in this region as you lift. If you solely base the shirt on your chest or arms, there is a good chance the shirt will end up being too big because of the compression it will have on these body parts.
Muscular and athletic with a medium-sized frame and wider shoulders
Highest priority measurement: BICEPS TWO
Why: This is the same reason as the SUIT AND BRIEF. The shirt has to go over your arm.
