Anorak Size Chart
NOTE: The tables show the measurements of the garment itself (in inches and in centimeters), and not the measurement of the wearer. Why?
The easiest way to determine the size you should order is to measure a garment you already have that fits the way you want:
- The garment you measure should not be a knit, because knits are normally too stretchy
- Completely close the center front of the garment
- Lay the garment very flat on a table
- Measure across the chest, just below the armpits
- Double the measure across the chest, giving the actual chest size of your garment
- Compare the chest size of your garment with the sizes in the chart (inches or centimeters)
- If your garment measures 24 inches across the chest, you would order a size Large because the 49-inch chest of the Anorak would be 1 inch larger than the 48-inch chest of the garment you measured. The Medium would be too tight
- If you are between sizes, choose the larger size
- Chris from Prepared Mind was confused. He had a Large Anorak, not XLarge (in reference to a misleading video seen by many).
Again, please note the measures in the charts below refer to the garment, not the person.
- CHEST is measured one inch below the armpits
- BOTTOM CIRCUMFERENCE is the very bottom hem of the Anorak
- SLEEVE LENGTH: Measure from the middle of the back at the base of the neck, over the shoulder, around the bend of the elbow and down to the end of the sleeve
- BODY LENGTH: Measuring from the seam of the collar, down to the bottom of the Anorak
- XS = Extra Small; S = Small; M = Medium; L = Large; XL = Extra Large; 2XL = Extra Extra Large; 3XL = Extra Extra Extra Large
