Patagonia Sizing Information
Check the item description in the online store for special sizing notes. If you have questions, please check with Customer Service by phone at 866-488-4060 before ordering. Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, unless noted.
Shrinkage: Approximate shrinkage percentages are shown on product pages within the online store. Because clothes do almost all their shrinking in length, use these to estimate how much length-loss will occur. We test all of our clothes for shrinkage and build in an allowance if we expect 6% shrinkage or more, which we state in product page copy.
Kids': When choosing sizes, height and weight are most important. We provide age as a rough guideline.
