Apparel Sizing

One key to your success in the field is being comfortable in your apparel. Being comfortable means having the right fit from your base layer to your outer shell. In true Badlands fashion, we’re here to help you get exactly what you need so you can focus on the pursuit and not worry about your gear.

Please read through the Official Badlands Sizing Chart and Layering Guide carefully and keep the following in mind:

  • If you are looking at outer layers or rain gear that you will typically wear over thicker layers, consider sizing up one size
  • If looking at base layers, choose your regular clothing size or if you prefer an extra-snug, athletic fit, you can size down
  • If you have any additional questions, please email and we’ll be happy to assist you


How to Measure Yourself


A. Chest

  • Measure around the chest and body at its fullest part (typically right under the armpits and shoulder blades, right across the nipples)
  • Hold the tape against the body tight enough so that it does not slip down, but not so tight that it restricts breathing. It should be “snug”
  • Make sure the tape is horizontal and the person’s arms are by their side; then take a normal breath and measure
  • Do not puff out your chest
  • Double check this measurement

B. Sleeve

  • Keep your elbow slightly bent
  • Measure from the end of the right shoulder to the “Pinch” of the right hand
  • The “Pinch” of the hand is found where the base of the thumb and the base of the index finger intersect (approximately 1 inch above the index finger knuckle)
  • Double check this measurement

C. Waist

  • Measure around your waist at the level where you would normally wear your pant’s belt
  • With the tape measure snug around your waist, relax, and take the measurement

D. Inseam

  • Measure from the lowest part of your crotch area to the floor
  • Make sure the tape is tight along the inside of your leg, that you are standing straight, and then measure
  • Do not wear shoes!
