We tried the size Medium in this jacket on Huey and we put an XL jacket on Dewey. These are the sizes they normally wear and both fit very well. Finding a fit in this style won’t be difficult. The overall style is simple and the jacket is fairly relaxed in fit. I’d advise you choose the size you normally wear in men’s clothing.
You can also use the chart below to choose a size based upon your chest and/or belly/waist measurements. I added an estimated “max belly” measurement too. Like I said above, this is a relaxed style so most people won’t have trouble with the belly size (like they might with a trim sport style), but if you have a bit of a belly it wouldn’t hurt to put a tape around it and make sure you are OK with the size you’ve chosen.

Our Two Cents
When we did our sizing advice and custom photos of the Eddy, we picked one of the more sedate colors, but in looking over the selection of color choices I see some pretty sharp ones. I like the white/orange and black/orange choices. I measured and tried on some of these jackets and I really like the overall fit and style. The jacket is just so easy to slip on and off, and being a summer jacket, it doesn’t have a lot of complicating factors for the fit such as bulky liners, etc. The entire outer shell of the jacket is flow through mesh except for the crash susceptible areas like the shoulders and elbows, which are a solid textile to add more abrasion protection. The armor in the jacket is of medium thickness and very pliable so I found it to be very comfortable. The jacket has a full-sleeve removable “wind breaker” style liner. Scorpion says it is also waterproof, but I’ll have to cry foul on that…. it doesn’t have taped seams, so although it would probably resist water, I don’t think it is waterproof. Anyway, in a jacket like this, and for the climate it is made for, I don’t think you’d even care about it being waterproof. So please take the “View Larger Images” link above to see the features I’m describing and to see those sharp color choices. We also have a couple “night shots” so you can see how the night reflectives perform. Overall, I think you’ll really like how easy this jacket is to wear and you’ll like how comfortable you can be in really hot weather. :: Paul, 03-21-14
