How to properly fit your Ready Rig GS or Ready Rig GS + ProArm to your bodyUpdated 7 months ago

Sizing your Vest

To optimize comfort and performance, it is important to adjust the Bat Wing settings to fit the operator’s torso. As a reference, an operator who is 5’10”-6’3” should have the Bat Wing set 2 holes down from the top, and the Bungee Slider set 2 holes up from the bottom (-2/+2). A smaller operator (5’4”-5’6”) should use settings -4/+4. Refer to the image below for recommended settings based on operator height.

NOTE: For optimal performance, please keep the system settings “mirrored.” The Bat Wing and Bungee Slider need to move up/down on a 1:1 scale, and should be kept symmetrical in their respective distance to the center-point of the backplate. These settings cannot be changed when the bungees are engaged. To make adjustments, release all tension from the Power Bungees, pull up on the Spring Bolts and slide to the desired setting.

Putting the Vest On

Pick up the Ready Rig and place it over your shoulders. Before clipping in the belt buckle, lightly fasten the shoulder straps, which will prevent the rig from falling backwards. Loosen the belt by pulling the Velcro straps away from the pads. Fasten the buckle, while listening for 2 distinct “clicks.” Tighten the belt by pulling both fabric straps away from the pads, and then forwards. Secure the remaining length to the velcro on your waist. The rig is most comfortable and effective by keeping the belt low and snug along your waist.

NOTE: If the belt is too high, or too loose, you may experience pressure in your lower back. If this happens, push the belt lower onto your hips, and tighten the straps so that the belt has a snug fit around your torso. It's extremely important to make sure that you do not over tighten the belt strap while operating. Discontinue use immediately if you experience any discomfort, pain, tingling, or numbness anywhere in your body.

NOTE: The shoulder supports should float 1-2” above your shoulder.
