In Our Opinion

Columbia outdoor clothing tends to fit very closely to the size chart above, so for a good fit, please go by these measurements. If you want a baggy look and feel, or you're looking for room to layer, then go for a size larger.

Columbia's men's range comes in four fits.  Be sure to choose the style most suited to your chosen activity for optimum fit and comfort.

Performance: A body contoured fit that follows the shape of the body and movement.  Great for active adventures and base layers.

Active: Body skimming fit designed for end-use mobility.  Great for all round use.

Modern Classic: Universal fit.  Easy cut for comfortable range of motion.

Relaxed: Loosest fit in the line.  Generous cut for a full range of movement.  Great for outer layers or stand-alone in warm weather. 

We are confident in the fit of Columbia garments because:

    • We have tried the garments on ourselves, in a full range of models and sizes.
    • We monitor customer returns.
    • We see customers wearing the garments in our Snowboard/Ski Shop
    • We have been selling them for years! 


How to Measure Your Chest

Measure Guide
  • Wear just an undergarment or nothing at all.
  • Stand up straight with your arms hanging by your sides
  • Breath normally and 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.

Jacket Dimensions

We strongly recommend that you never measure a jacket to determine the chest size you need.  Actual garment sizes differ substantially from the dimensions quoted in the table at the top of this page because the manufacturer makes allowances for:

      • The wearing of mid and / or base layers beneath the jacket
      • The freedom of movement required for skiing and snowboarding
      • The cut and style of the jacket
      • The insulation which may or may not be included in a particular jacket.

All of the above will differ depending on a jacket's specific design.  A jacket's physical dimensions will always be significantly greater than your actual chest measurement but this difference will also vary from jacket to jacket.
