Properly fitting a set of leathers

A set of leathers is a major investment, so it’s important that they fit you well.

Although leathers will give a little bit over time, they aren’t as flexible as textile garments, so the makers cut them to fit well when you are in a typical riding position.

But that can vary a lot from a sit-up-and-beg tourer stance to a full-on racer crouch, so make sure you’ve got room to move by squatting down and twist to mimic looking over your shoulders and crouch down.

That means they can seem baggy arsed when you are walking around, and you might need to unzip them a little so they are not tight across your chest, but they will be comfortable when you’re on your bike.
