We use different suppliers for our products. You can take a look at the size chart for each supplier by clicking on the links at the bottom of the page. Alternatively we've produced an average size chart below based on our experience of the brands. In general The North Face, Rab, Ronhill, Prana, Mountain Equipment, Mountain Hardwear, Moon, Merrell, Zoca are all reasonably true to our average size chart. Just watch out for North Face Alpine Fit which is slimmer on the hips - so maybe go up a size for these items from the Summit Series Range. Patagonia is smaller on the waist and quite big on the hips but otherwise fits the size chart.  With Salomon although their size chart matches our average, the fit is on the small side for running clothing, (ski jackets seem to fit our size chart) - go up a half size for Salomon in running clothing eg if you're on the upper side of a UK 12 go for a Large. E9 is an exception to our general chart - go up a size for E9. We have tips on our product pages for items that we've noticed don't fit these rules. For example athletic or fitted will be on the small side and loose could well seem bigger than normal. Please note: sizing will always vary even within a brand depending on the cut and style of the garment e.g. loose fitting, fitted etc. Plus garments will always have a size tolerance of up to 2cm.

NOTE: A SIZE LARGE IN OUR STORE IS ONLY A UK14
