Default Who has a large HANS?

I currently have a medium HANS but have an opportunity to move up to a large. My medium has felt kind of small, it sits on my traps instead of my shoulders, and it squeezes my neck when I put it on. Could somebody with a large give me the inner dimensions so I can see howuch bigger the large actually is? The last thing I want is to get a large and have it be too big.

measured at the widest point.

Large, ranges from 6 7/16 and 6 13/16 the largest was Adjustable again and smallest was the Sport II


Medium, ranges from 4 3/4 to 5 1/16


next time you stop in the shop, thank TJ for running around measuring all the Hans-es (what's plural for hans?)

<p>Wish I could stop in, thats a bit of a drive for me </p><p><img src="http://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/404x96/80-7mjbtwc_20b31ee896e0e76debdb31d4134bce2420f4cb67.p ng" title="" /><br /><br />Thanks for all the measuring. So it looks like the large is almost 2 inches wider than the medium. I'll have to measure where that would put mine.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

I was talking to our sales guy Brian. He was saying it was normal that people with large "traps" prefer the large.

For what it's worth, I find that my Necksgen Version 1 is way more comfortable than the various Hans devices that I've tried on. The angle is also adjustable instead of having to commit to just one, and it has better ratings for side impacts as well.

To avoid starting a new thread on head and neck restraints, I figured I'd post here.

Anyone else looking forward to Schroth Racing releasing their new SHR Flex?
