A Guide to PHD's sizes

Standard Clothing Sizing Chart

The PHD Sizing Chart below is based on measurements without clothing, exactly the way you would buy a shirt, a sweater or a pair of trousers. A 42 " (107cm) chest means that your bare chest uninflated measures 42 ". Inside Arm is measured from armpit to wrist-bone and Inside Leg from crutch to ankle bone. If you find that you fall between (or across) these sizings, please contact us and we will quote you for modifications needed. Please note: modifications cannot be made to sale items, bargain box items or other products not offered at full price. If you are supplying us with your measurements, it is always useful for us to know your height, even when you are only buying a jacket.

Sleeping Bag Length Chart

The measurements in the Sleeping Bag Chart below are personal body measurements (The figures quoted for sleeping bag dimensions vary widely in the way they are calculated and lead to some manufacturers quoting figures apparently suited to giants over 7 ' (213cm) tall).

ShortBelow 168cm (below 5 ' 6 " )Below 170cm (below 5 ' 7 " )

Additional Length and Width Options

Our Design-you-own-sleeping-bag system will allow you to design and buy 'extra short' and 'extra long' bags in addition to our standard sizes. You can also specify one of four widths (slim, standard, wide, and extra wide).

Extra Long lengths and all four width fittings are also available as options on Hispar and Minim Sleeping Bag ranges.

PHD Boots Sizing

These sizes are approximate, to the nearest half size, because down boots are roomy and soft by nature and exact sizings are meaningless.
