How to Measure Your Chest & Arm Length

  • Wear just an undergarment or nothing at all.
  • Stand up straight with your arms hanging by your sides and breath normally.
  • Run a soft tape measure under your arm pits over the largest part of your chest and across your shoulder blades.
  • The tape measure should be snug, but not tight.
  • Ask a friend to run a soft tape measure from the centre of the back of your neck, across to the tip of one shoulder, then down the outside of your arm to your wrist bone.
  • The Fit

    Sizings tend to vary between brands and the above size information is designed to help you choose the correct Mountain Hardwear product. The measurements given correspond to equivalent body measurements, not the dimensions of the garment.
    Mountain Hardwear garments come in four fits, standardised across their entire apparel line. Be sure to choose the style most suited to your chosen activity for optimum fit and comfort.

  • Body Fit: Close, body-hugging fit for aerobic activities. Great for running, cross country skiing, and next-to-skin layering.
  • Active Fit: Trim fit, loose enough for layering with freedom of movement. Great for backcountry skiing and snowboarding, mountaineering and running.
  • Standard Fit: Moderate fit - not too tight nor loose. Fits over base and mid-layers for freedom of movement. Great for trekking, hiking, travel and casual wear.
  • Relaxed Fit: Loosest fit. Roomier and more progressive fit. Designed with a longer length and softer drape. Great for backpacking, hiking, skiing and casual wear.
