Please Measure Before Ordering - Harrier race vests may be different to your current race vest so we strongly recommend you measure to double check sizing before ordering.
Ladies - UK sizing is estimated. Measure bust and ribs to be accurate.
|SIZE||LADIES UK SIZE||MEN CHEST (INCHES)|
|XS (KINDER)||6-8||29 - 32"|
|S (KINDER)||10||33 - 35"|
|M (KINDER)||12||36 - 38"|
|L (KINDER)||14||39 - 41"|
|XL (STANAGE*)||16||42 - 44"|
|XXL (STANAGE*)||18||45 - 47"|
48 - 50"
*Please note the Kinder and Stanage are exactly the same design - the Stanage was an addition to the range for the XL to 3XL sizing.
Ladies take two measurements:
- Widest part of your bust
- Around ribs just under bust
Check if two measurements fit in one sizing bracket. If not we would recommend going for the size that fits your bust, or that you are most in the middle of. You want the vest to fit round your bust, but not be too loose on your ribs.
Men measure around widest part of your chest. If inbetween, size up.

The Vest A Man Can Get
Great fit (Small 36-38" for me with 37" chest, 64kg, 170cm), no bounce, fit and forget. Good configuration options for distributing load. Easy enough to tuck in flappy zips. One or two bits of loose stitching on ends of trim, but purely cosmetic, and nothing more than I've seen on any other brand. Very happy.
Great value and utility
Positives: Excellent value. Capacity- enough for a winter ultra kit list, and some extras, such as a permatex jacket rather than a thinner mid-layer, extra tights and 1500 cals of food. Liked the zipped waist belt pockets. Negatives: I'm broad shouldered and should have sized above chest size, that said, it's stable without having the chest straps done up!
Curbar 5l Race Vest
My first hydration vest, which I needed at short notice for a race. Harrier was recommended and I received my order quickly. Very pleasing transaction, website, and a great product. It seems very good value for money, well designed and well made. I bought a 5l Curbar race vest and 2l bladder. I find it comfortable and it fits well. After 10 minutes I forgot I was wearing it. I bought a Large and it fits me well (1.78m, 68 kg male). It is also great to support a small up and coming business. Nice personal touches included the 'new customer' discount, a free tube scarf for spending over £30. I will certainly be buying more products from Harrier.
This vest is amazing, I already have a kinder 10l but I think I love this even more! It’s perfect for trail runs/ long runs and fits everything I need! Thanks so much x
Worn once and seems fine, a little bit annoying that the zip ends bop your arms when you run. Seems to be the right size!
