The size that is right for you depends on the carry styles you will be using, your height/weight, experience, and personal preference. We recommend using your base size as a starting point to determine the wrap size you want.

Your base size is the size that you need to do a FWCC. Once you know your base size, to determine what size wrap you would need to do other carries, find the carry name on the left, then look to see what size is listed for that carry under the column heading for your particular base size. For example, if your base size is 6, then to do a Reinforced Ruck, you need at least a size 4. The size chart indicates the minimum size needed to accomplish each carry. When a carry is done with a longer wrap than the size indicated on the chart, you will be left with longer tails, so please take care to avoid tripping by securing the tails away from your feet and legs.
