Coast Guard Height & Weight Charts

NOTES 1. Measure height and weight without shoes*. 2. Measure height to the nearest 1/2" and interpolate to find weight standards. 3. If weight measurement is done in the following uniforms: a. T-shirt and gym shorts - subtract 1 lb. b. T-shirt and long undress trousers - subtract 2 lbs. c. T-shirt and sweatpants - subtract 2 lbs. d. Tropical blue long - subtract 2.5 lbs. 4. *If weight is measured while wearing shoes - subtract an additional 2.5 lbs.

How to Determine Frame Size: 1. Extend and spread apart the fingers of the dominant hand. 2. Place cloth tape measure around wrist at the point where there are two "knobs". 3. Measure ensuring that the tape goes across both "knobs".
