The jumping suit has recently become a decisive part of the equipment. To ensure equal opportunities the size, design and thickness of the fabric was limited.
All portions of the ski jumping suit must be made of the same material and must show the same air permeability from the outside in and from the inside out.The suit must close by means of a zipper placed at the centre of the front. The closed zipper strap must exceed the collar end by 1.5 cm to 5 cm. During the jump the zipper must be completely closed.
The suit must be close-fitting in any part of the body. The measured circumference of any unstreched part of the suit must not exceed the respective body measurement. It is not allowed to fix the suit to the gloves. Exception is to accommodate the fit of the suit around the boot a maximum tolerance of 10 cm. This tolerance may start from the close-fitted part below the knee with a transition to the bottom hem of the leg panel.
Additional restrictions are for example:
- The thickness of all parts of the suit must be the same.
- Only one fixed (non-adjustable) strap per leg is allowed for fixing the suit around the ski boot.
