How to measure

Before ordering this back protector, please follow the steps below referring to the sizing table above.

  1. Size: Find your equivalent dress or age size from the table.
  2. Back length: This is the measurement of the back protector pad. When seated in the saddle, measure from the nape of your neck to approximately 7cm above the point of the saddle. This will confirm the back length is suitable and will not interfere with the saddle when riding.
