ION Vertex Select Sky size question

Postby flysurfing » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:08 pm

Hello All,

I am 31 waist size and wondering do you recommend to take the ION Vertex Select sky in small 28 31 or medium 30 33 since they both cover my waist size.

Thanks a lot

I'm also a 31" waist and my belly is about the same. and I have the Vertex in size Small. Harnesses will stretch out a bit when wet, so usually going smaller is ideal. Now if you're wearing a thick wetsuit and/or impact vest all of the time, then maybe go with the Medium to allow some added room. My Small can adjust fine for both my 5mm suit and drysuit which is a bit bulkier. Hope that helps! :thumb:

A good tip that I learned is the get the harness wet before you put it on. It can also make tightening down the straps easier.
