hello all, i was wondering if anyone knew how to measure yourself to determine what size/length of the gatra strap you need?

Kellysingh ji I am no expert on this. A suggestion to get ballpark perhaps like this.

Tie a string loop to just below the handle on a steak knife. Now put that loop around your neck resting on the shoulder between your neck and the exterior of the shoulder. Adjust the loop so that the knife blade is say 2/3rds below the location where you will tie a belt. I think that should give you pretty good approximation.
Perhaps also ask if the place you are buying it from gives you other ideas. Best of course is a shop to try one own for best fit.

Hope it is of help

It is very hard to find a commercial site to buy a gatra and strap. Therefore, most people make their own. However, if you search for Kirpan there are some sites that do carry these items as accessory to the kirpan.

Does anyone know if the gatras with adjustable straps are any good?
Thank you
