The Chest size is important. Also consideration should be taken in the size of the persons arms. Normally a given chest size will have enough adjustments for several inches over the shoulders and around the chest to compensate for weight changes. The harness is designed with a ring in the back so that a leash or tie down can be installed to help stabilize the individual using the system.

Many people who are paralyzed from the mid body down may fall forward when fighting a fish. They need some sort of stabilization and assistance to avoid injury. A caregiver should always be with them in outdoors sports.
