Men's Fit Guide

Though each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, Patagonia generalises their fit descriptions in four ways:

Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.

Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.

Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.

Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.

How to Measure

Sleeve: With elbow bent, measure from the center (back) of neck to elbow and down to wrist.

Chest/Bust: Measure around your chest/bust, just under armpit.

Waist: Measure around waist at the smallest circumference.

Hips: Stand, feet together, and measure around the largest circumference at hips.

Hands: Measure around the fullest part of the hand, not including thumb.

Inseam: Take a pair of pants that fit well and measure from the crotch to bottom of leg. All pants come with a finished hem.
