Abstract : This fit mapping manual is intended to offer detailed up-to-date guidance for preparing, performing and analyzing fit evaluations for most types of clothing and protective equipment. The term Fit Mapping is used to differentiate it from the traditional fit testing that has been conducted primarily for determining an accommodation rate and verification of requirements. This manual addresses: 1) definition of the Fit Criteria (Concept of fit) for a test item, 2) performing a fit evaluation, 3) analysis of the results, and finally, how to apply these results to the manufacturing process. Therefore, this fit mapping manual offers the basic knowledge needed to evaluate various types of equipment by presenting a step by step procedure.
