Abstract:

Appearing in this report for the first time are anthropometric sizing programs developed for Army field clothing to be worn by both men and women. Dimensional data were derived from a statistical analysis of body size data obtained from Army men and women, and take into account not only size differentials but the marked proportional differences which exist between the two sexes. Formatted for use by clothing designers and patternmakers, the bulk of the report consists of sizing tables which include recommended design values for a total of 26 dimensions for each of 20 sizes. Two separate programs are given, one devised for upper body garments and one for lower body garments. Although clothing designs based on these sizing programs have not, at this writing, been executed and field tested, these data are felt to be the most promising yet available to accommodate all Army personnel.
