Lads and Ladettes,
Just a quick question, maybe someone knows: I'm looking to buy UPT Vector 308 (2nd hand). Seller sent me a pic of the label with tray & harness sizing. MLW is stated as 17 + 1, which seems a bit unusual. What does that mean? I.e. was it MLW 17 and then harness got resized to MLW 18 or what? 
Cheers for your help,

I think it is to do with where the Laterals fit in, a 308 is a reasonable small container, so it can only be so long. So on a tall person the laterals would be fairly high up the body making the leg loops really long, if they were attached directly be low the laterals.


So I think it means that the MLW is 17" (though I have no idea where the MLW stops at the top) and the +1 is a 1" extension below the laterals before the leg loops start?


I of course will be wrong :)

How tall are you?


Good luck, Jon

Hey dude, I'd email UPT with the serial number and theyll send you back the order form so you can see exactly the height/weight/length/breadth/etc of the person that it was sized for. Simples.
