Measurements are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, Patagonia generalizes their fit descriptions in four ways:
Conforms to the body’s contours.
Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting
Drapes loosely on the body.
How to Measure
With elbow bent, measure from the center (back) of neck to elbow and down to wrist.
Measure around your chest/bust, just under armpit.
Measure around waist at the smallest circumference.
Stand, feet together, and measure around the largest circumference at hips.
Measure around the fullest part of the hand, not including thumb.
Take a pair of pants that fit well and measure from the crotch to bottom of leg. All pants come with a finished hem.
Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches unless otherwise noted. Patagonia products are sized to how there are designed to be worn. i.e. Outer layer garments are sized to allow for underlayer garments, and next to skin products like t-shirts and cap daily underwear will be closer to body dimensions.
Patagonia is generally pretty consistent with sizing and the various fits to prior season products.
