IMPORTANT SIZING NOTE: It is very important to take your child's measurement and refer to the Size Chart below. The actual measurement is what should be used to determine the size. The manufacturer supplied the "Approximate Age" reference, however, we do not always find it accurate and children vary greatly in size in every age group.
