Petzl Climbing Gear Size Study

Petzl Climbing Gear

Most outdoor companies use fit models to help design their standard products, from which all different sizing options are created based on a grading scale. Some companies, such as The North Face, have experimented with user controlled software that matches your personal measurements to the best corresponding product size. Petzl is taking a more proactive approach by reaching out directly to you, asking you to send in your body measurements to help the company better design future product sizes.
