There are three sizes of this vest to cover the range from men’s Small to XXXL. Choose the size based on what you normally buy in men’s clothing. The vest has adjustments on the side and shoulders and we found that the vests easily fit subjects within the range specified (and then some). The front of the vest extends only part way down the torso, so belly and/or waist sizes aren’t really much of a factor.
Our Two Cents
The Stryker Driver Vest from Icon integrates chest and back protection in one easy to wear vest. This vest could be worn under just about any sort of clothing to protect the chest and back. The vest is light weight and breathable and made of very comfortable materials (on the sides facing the body). The vest is made of a wide variety of materials…. hard plastic on the outer shell of the back protector and chest protector components, a D30 breathable back insert behind the hard protector, a soft inside liner for comfort, soft welting around each of the outer seams, rubber grommets around each of the styling components (those things that look like vents on the front).... I could keep going, but you get the idea. Overall it looks and feels like very well made armor that would do a great job in case of a crash. It is quick to put on and take off, and seems very comfortable (as compared to traditional styles with an elastic belly strap and shoulder straps. This unit works with the Stryker elbow and knee armor (listed below). Take the “View Larger Pictures” link above for some good factory pics of the vest, we also took some custom shots of the basic Stryker Vest which you can refer to.
